Bottom Line

The Rambagh Palace is a luxury hotel housed in the former summer palace of a Maharaja, in the upscale area of Jaipur. Keeping up with the high standards of the renowned Taj brand, this property exudes royal luxury throughout. Attention to detail is what makes this hotel so special. The 45 rooms and 33 suites each feature their own individual design and come with amenities like air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, minibars, and free Wi-Fi. Features include five specialized dining facilities, a full spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a fitness center. The grounds are massive and include a total of 14 event and meeting spaces. The major downside here is that rates don't include breakfast. While Rambagh Palace is unrivaled in most regards, The Raj Palace Grand Heritage Hotel is another luxurious and elite option in Jaipur.

Scene

Housed in a 20th-century palace, with luxurious interiors and high-end clientele

Housed in a 20th-century palace (the former summer residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur), Rambagh Palace is the epitome of high-end elegance and sophistication. The architecture and interiors feature Rajasthani and Mughal influences, including hand-carved marble latticework, traditional cupolas, and sandstone balustrades. Everything in this hotel screams royalty, and guests are actually welcomed with a royal parade while a photographer takes their photograph under the royal umbrella.

The interiors feature an expansive use of white marble, pastel coloring, luxurious furniture, and royalty-themed artwork and decor. There is a large courtyard, Chandni Chowk, which is surrounded by hallways and rooms with a few benches placed between the beautifully sculptured gardens and water features. The Mughal Gardens feature expansive lawns surrounding the hotel with perfectly groomed gardens and pathways lined with sculptures and water features. Over 150 peacocks roam the lawns. The Rambagh Palace is mostly frequented by high-end travelers; either on corporate or leisure travel.
