Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Located in the old part of the city, within walking distance of Hawa Mahal and Jaipur City Palace.

Rooms at Rajmahal Palace

As you follow the curving marble staircase and walk through the flower-covered hallways to your room, keep an eye on the wallpaper, as it tells the many stories of Jaipur and its illustrious rulers. From polo ponies and peacock arches to elements from the royal crest, such as a lion and a horse under a sun, the specially crafted wallpaper gives each guestroom its unique theme. As well as walls that act as artworks, the pastel coloured rooms feature en suite bathrooms, original mirrored doors, modern furniture and a dressing room. 


If you are a fan of powder blue, go for the Mountbatten Suite – a stylish one bedroom suite with a drawing room, dressing room, pantry, superb cut-glass chandelier and antique four-poster bed.

Food and drink

If your eyes can handle that much fuchsia, head to the 51 Shades of Pink room for a cheerful breakfast, alternatively settle for the brightly-lit corners of the Colonnade, for alfresco tables with views over the garden. As the sun goes down, have afternoon tea on the manicured lawns, nibbling on freshly baked goodies, or sip on the tasty cocktails in the trophy-encased Polo Bar. For more informal dining and a delicious Jaipur curry, head to the Orient Occident for its dishes of jungli maas (tender mutton cooked with red chillies and garlic) and bhindi masaledar (deep-fried okra).

Facilities

The Art Deco pool is the perfect place to cool off, especially as it is surrounded by tranquil gardens and has great views across the property. There is also a spa offering a range of massages and treatments, designed to relax the mind and body.

Activities at Rajmahal Palace

Well placed to explore Jaipur, the Rajmahal Palace offers a series of private tours of the city, which range from an all-encompassing excursion through the city to a specialised trip around the City Palace. You can also go on a photographic walk, with plenty of opportunities to snap the perfect pic, venture through the bustling local markets with a knowledge guide at your side or take full advantage of the royal treatment and book a seat in the royal box during a polo match.
