Arrival at The Umaid Bhawan Palace was a very special experience. Roseleaves drops from above, while four men are holding a red baldachin. Our arrival was only a short drive from Hari Mahal hotel where we had stayed for 5 nights. The Umaid Bhawan Palace was the highlight on our Rajasthan vacation this year.

We had of course seen photos of the Umaid Bhawan but I don't think anything prepared us for the long drive up and then the first glimpse of the Palace - it is Huge! This is another outstanding Taj Hotel and they do it perfectly. From the rose petal welcome to the walk into the foyer and then view up... More

Umaid Bhawan seems to be 'the' place for weddings. We were lucky to be guests for one such wedding and I must admit the setting of the hotel is brilliant. The arrangements were excellent though most of the credit should go to the wedding planners and the hosts. The palace forms a beautiful setting for any occasion, which is why... More

The hotel, still the home of the current maharaja, was a high standard as would be expected from a hotel of is standard. The building overall is impressive and it is worthwhile just wandering around exploring the rooms and outside grounds, including the vintage care collection and museum. The 'Pillars' restaurant, where we dined on both nights of our stay,... More

We were booked in a Historical Suite here (whilst on a private Abercrombie & Kent tour) but were upgraded to a Royal Suite, which had several large, Art Deco-style rooms and a generously-sized balcony with views of the stunning gardens. Especially the topiary bougainvilleas, and the peacocks (who shamelessly beg for bread at breakfast on the terrace.) This was one... More

This palace with its dome is amazing. We all stayed in royal suites which have a great view and are very well decorated. Most of the service is on the level it should be, but especially in the restaurants and in the bar there a (old) men working, who are not contribute to the high-level standard. Some of them are...

Definitely lives up to the photos. The rooms are fabulous, the amenities are first rate, and property is beautiful. Food in the Tavern and Pillar restaurants was both okay. The spa and swimming pools are fabulous. Not cheap, but worth the expense.

Amazing stay, paid a little extra for the royal suite. Amazing room, It's just like a real palace. The rooftop restaurant is a great place to relax and have a drink or have breakfast. Easy to get taxi or auto rickshaw at reasonable prices. To do a full day city tour in an auto rickshaw 500 rupees. Overall a great... More

It is hard to find enough superlatives to describe this true palace. Previously, the best hotel I had ever stayed at was the Oberoi Udaivillas, but I have to put the Umain Bhavan on the top of my list now. The terrace, where breakfast is served overlooking a breathtaking garden, with peacocks eating from you hand, is splendid. Also, the... More
