“A W E S O M E !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Last week my wife and I spent 3 nights at Umaid Bhawan. I am at a loss for words to share this awesome experience.

Right from the Royal Welcome to the exquisite suite to the beautiful in-door temperature controlled pool to the Sooper Jiva Spa to the great Continental and Rajasthani cuisine to the suave GM Mr Ramos to the ever efficient Restaurant Manager Mudit Mathur oh God I could go on and on.

The experience truly was what Maharaja Gaj Singh ( who by the way lives in the Palace ) said " you are my guests "

I believe it's the 9th best Hotel in the world. An opportunity to stay here is NOT TO BE MISSED.

I've stayed in the best of hotels the world over but this ambience and hospitality is just

A W E S O M E !

Royalty personified with The Bubbly flowing all over you.

An experience to remember!

We've been fortunate enough to stay in some of the best hotels both in India and all around the world. It is so rare to come across a hotel which combines history, beautiful facilities, amazing food, surroundings and most particularly employees whose attention to detail and desire to provide guests with incredible service is second to none. It is this last point which ensures that this hotel is one of the very best in the world. Thank you. We stayed 2 nights and would love to have stayed longer.

Hotel staff is courteaous and every return to our room we found the room made up.Our thanks to all the wonderful staff who looked after us like Royal guest. Our house keeping staff specially Mr Berishal was very humble and Mr Cyril Rao without asking extended checkout time to adjust our train departure.We cannot forget to Mr Deepraj ,Mudit and Satwik who were always to help us with big smile.BARADARI outside restaurant breakfast experience was great with courtesy sparkling wine with great service by staff specially Mr Shashank Mathur.Afternoon while we were sitting outside pool area a person named Mr Chandan singh along with his assistant came running and gave us superb service.

Grand property, with a wonderful welcome. Lovely view of the fort.

Impeccable service, excellent rooms with an equally wonderful bathroom.

Good food. The hotel also arranged a magical evening for our group at the Meherangarh Fort, with entertainers, great food, and fireworks. Try to experience this as well.

Room Tip: Take a room on the first or higher floor.
