Location and Transfers

Located in the heart of Jodhpur, a 20 minute drive from Jodhpur International Airport.


Palace Rooms – embellished with Art Deco interiors and equipped with modern conveniences, Palace rooms are a refreshing blend of old and new. Current amenities comfortably co-exist with original décor from princely times

Historical Suites – these lavish yet, tastefully-appointed suites are the erstwhile residences of visiting Royalty. Each suite has its own unique theme and all have a different colour scheme from classy maroons to gold and sage greens. An eclectic mix of Art Deco/Neoclassical themed historical suites all have five-fixture feature bathrooms and private sit outs with stunning palace views of the panoramic lawns or courtyards

Royal Suites – presented in a luxurious Art Deco style with mirror-finished terrazzo, large bedroom and sitting area. Two bay rooms (living and bedroom) offer spectacular views of the sweeping Baradari Lawns and magnificent Mehrangarh Fort in the distance. Through every piece of furniture and every exacting detail, these suites truly embody a regal lifestyle

Maharaja Suite – a much earthier and certainly a more masculine mood prevails in Maharaja Umaid Singh’s suite just across the crystal fountain separating his suite from his Maharani’s. Obviously, Norblin saved his finest works for his generous patrons’ personal apartment. The Maharaja Suite has murals of leopards, tigers, horses and even of the famed Jodhpur sport, pig sticking. Flaming torch lamps in chrome, plush Ruhlmann sofas in faux leopard skin, the delightful mirrored bar in the drawing room and the original artifacts that still adorn the shelves make this an incredibly handsome suite

Maharani Suite – originally designed for and indeed once graced by the beautiful and charismatic Maharani Badan Kanwan, the Maharani Suite is rather appropriately dominated by a Stefan Norblin mural of the Goddess Kali etched on shining black glass.
Designed in pinks, blacks, chrome and mirrors, this suite is indeed worthy of the queen for whom it was built, and all of the original Art Deco décor has been retained. The suite includes spacious drawing and dining rooms with an attached kitchenette, an enormous, private terrace with a spectacular view of the palace gardens and the Mehrangarh Fort, a dressing room with a wardrobe only a queen could find small, and the piece de resistance – a bath, also designed by Norblin, carved out of a single piece of pink Italian marble

Grand Royal Suites – the Grand Royal Suites, designed in Art Deco style, were once reserved for visiting royalty. Each suite is different, with subtle underlying and unique themes of a favorite colour or princely passion


Risala – at Risala, a blend of imaginative and sumptuous Continental and Indian cuisines are served. Outside the windows, one will find spectacular views of the gardens, the city and the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, while the interior of the restaurant is adorned with royal and martial portraits

Pillars – located in the western rear veranda of the palace, this charming open-air cafe offers spectacular views of the city, the Baradari lawns, and the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort. The menu offers a wide selection of pre-plated meals, snacks, Rajasthani delicacies, full meals and teatime delicacies

Sunset Pavilion – this is the brainchild of the present Maharaja’s grandfather and his vision has been incorporated into the look and feel. Guests are taken in 1940s elevator with carved wood interiors and they make their way through the “Whispers” gallery to begin their culinary journey. Sunset pavillion serves royal barbecue and international grills

The Trophy Bar – esides offering a small menu of snacks and finger foods amidst the warm interiors, the drink menu at the Trophy Bar consists of a various selection of aperitifs, whiskeys, cognacs, tequilas, liqueurs, martinis and Bellini’s, as well as Cuban cigars
