The characterisation "palace" certainly fits this hotel. Everything is on a grand scale befitting the fact that the current Maharajah still occupies part of the building. The palace is not historic in the sense that it was only completed in 1943 when the royal family moved here from the massive (must see) Mehrangah Fort (the "Red Fort) which can be... More

Quite possibly one of the best hotels in the world. We had the privilege to stay at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace for two nights as part of our honeymoon. From the very start we were greeted with a friendly and charming member of staff at the airport for our short transfer to the hotel in their Land Rover car.... More

My wife and I, and a couple of friends had the chance to travel around Rajasthan for the first time this month, and stayed at 3 Taj's palace hotels on this trip. Umaid Bhawan Palace was the most memorable of the 3 for me personally. The specialness started with the drums playing when we were in our vehicle entering the... More

With a gigantic palace half converted into a hotel, this hotel is a must visit property if you're willing to pay the price. The state of the art facilities, under ground spa, open gardens, amazing hospitality, delicious food and the beautiful property is what makes it a must visit on my list. The palace hotel is silent , peaceful and... More

The UBP was one of the best properties we have stayed at. The pool and grounds are immaculate, but what set it apart was the exceptional staff from check-in to check-out. Seamless. Perfect location and superb customer service. We will definitely plan on returning soon.

This palace is a stunning looking property which makes you feel a very special guest from the moment the drums beat to welcome you to the hotel. A glorious outlook and architecturally beautiful building although not quite as historic as you may think (it is about 75 years old). The room we had was very comfortable with a massive dressing...

When my car drove up to the Porte Cochere of the hotel......drums and trumpets sounded so loud that I thought the President was arriving. Troops dressed in ceremonial uniforms ran down the steps carrying a red and gold canopy and other staff threw rose petals as I ascended into the cavernous rotunda where I was anointed with a garland of...
