My family visited December 20th and 21st. The property is gorgeous, the food was excellent, and the service was the best I have ever experienced at any hotel in the world. Truly memorable and amazing. The extent to which the staff anticipated our needs was very special. Special thanks to our waiter Kaushik, but everyone was amazing.

There is a reason this is rated #1. Beautiful "hotel" (as others have said, it's a palace, not really a hotel), great food, amazing staff that can't do enough for you. Rooms are spacious, and we were given a free bottle of wine in our room - really nice touch). Museum is worth a visit too! And, something worth mentioning:... More

This hotel property is amazing, especially decorated for Christmas as it was when we were there. If it Jodhpur, it is absolutely worth staying here. The hotel has a relatively small number of rooms but is exquisite. You walk into huge rotundas, circle staircases, fantastic gardens, beautiful public rooms, a particularly beautiful pool area, and the room themselves are amazing.... More

Vast reception rooms, a circular, marble floored foyer and meticulously kept gardens give this majestic five star hotel the feel of old time grandeur of the Raj. Our suite was huge and comfortable.

One of the largest royal residences in the world, the golden-yellow sandstone Umaid Bhawan Palace is a monument to Jodhpur’s gallantry and romance.

From magnificent views of the palace gardens and the spectacular Mehrangarh Fort. From unique themed dinners that flaunt all the pomp-and-splendour of the desert kingdom. ... more   less
