Umaid Bhawan Palace was named the world’s best hotel at the Traveller’s Choice Award in 2016.
Perched on the highest point in Jodhpur, Chittar Hill, the palace was constructed using the same palm court marble as the Taj Mahal.
The menu features authentic Rajasthani, Indian, European and Mediterranean delicacies.
The Chittar Sandstone monument is set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens, including landscaped Baradari Lawns perfect for a fairy tale wedding.
The palace museum houses maharaja's classic cars, stuffed leopards, a very large symbolic flag given to Maharaja Jaswant Singh by Queen Victoria in 1877 etc.
