From its ‘humble’ beginnings as a handmaiden’s quarters to a hunting lodge of Indian royalty and finally a palace, Rambagh Palaceis jewel in the Taj’s crown of hotels, with 78 stunningly restored grand luxury rooms and suites which were the chambers of Jaipur’s former Maharajas. It has played host to several celebrity personalities including Prince Charles and Jacqueline Kennedy. Today, the palace is every bit as graceful as it was over a 100 years ago. Careful restoration has retained much of its elaborate and extravagantly decorated halls and pillars; hand-carved marble latticework, sandstone balustrades, cenotaphs, and elaborate Mughal Gardens are found within this glorious complex, allowing you the closest experience to living like the best of Rajasthan’s royalty. The hotel’s Spa offers ancient Indian wellness therapies and signature treatments, while the former palace ballroom, built in the 18th-century and influenced by French style crystal chandeliers, puts on the most delicious feasts you’ll find in Jaipur.
