One of the largest royal residences in the world, the golden-yellow sandstone Umaid Bhawan Palace is a monument to Jodhpur’s gallantry and romance. Guests get a taste of what it was like to live like kings. From rooms once occupied by the Maharaja. From regal pastimes like polo or croquet. From magnificent views of the palace gardens and the spectacular Mehrangarh Fort. From unique themed dinners that flaunt all the pomp-and-splendour of the desert kingdom.

This hotel is the most impressive hotel i have seen in my life. Nicely maintained, unique royal experience and personal touch in the entire expreience of a royal family. Its not just the hotel which is unique and gives you that royal experience , but also the TAJ teams of various department like welcome desk, spa, restaurant, service, housekeeping etc who doesnt leave any stone unturned to give you that royal experience. They dont have "NO" or "SORRY" word in there dictionary for any of your requirements starting from anything to eat which may not be there in Menu or any other specific requirements in play areas, or yoga sessions etc or any other uniquer experience requirement. We were upgraded to Royal Suit which was a huge room wiith a huge toilet which makes you feel like a guest from any of the royal family.
Every staff member seems to be working to give their best to the guest with no pressure to name few of them Divya at Front desk, Anamika, Hukum and others in housekeeping,Jabbar singh in Pillar restaurant, Kamlesh & Chandan on swimming pool and many more whose names we forgot. Mr.Berisal who was our room service person (Butler nominated) i cant forget in my life, i dont have words to explain his dedication to address needs of his guest. It made me felt as if i am a guest at his house and not in any hotel.
Unbelivable experience which cant be described in words. This is infact the best of the lot ammong the Taj properties even above Taj palace Mumbai, Taj Ram bagh palace Jaipur.
We stayed there for 2 nights , after checking in i was regretting why only 2 nights. It should have been much more
Looking forward to staying here again soon, requqesting Taj team to have the same team helping us during the next stay alogn with Mr.Berisal.
The hotel is well maintained even during this COVID time with utmost care and precautions in place, which gives one that confidence that you are in safe hands in during these difficult times.
The hotel is original Art Deco style - even the restrooms. The Mahardsha still lives in one part of the palace. The gardens , view and surroundings are just unbelievable.

Overall a must-visit and experience Palace !!

We were a diverse group of people with different diet preferences and our biggest thanks goes to Harsh and Chef Elangovan for patiently understanding our requirements giving us customized menus for each of our meals. We wanted different cuisines for each meal and a lot of effort was put into creating and executing each of the menus. Harsh also helped us by suggesting private venues and artists for cultural performances for our events, which really added immensely to the whole event.
Along with Harsh and Chef Elangovan, special thanks also to Chef Sandeep and Anan, who were always there throughout the event to check if everything was going well. They ensured that all our requests were met and we got exactly what we had discussed.

Our most memorable experience was the royal touch added by our servers who treated us exactly like royalty. They are the soul of the hotel and add the old world charm which is rare to get anywhere else. Our special heartfelt thanks to Jabar, Narendra, Saddiq and Karan whose addressing us as "Hukum" will always be fondly remembered, along with others who were with them: Hemendra, Kapil, Mukul and Puneet during our meals. Mahaveer, Gordhan and Manisha who used to supervise the servers added their own personal touch and ensured that there were no gaps in service and everything went smooth.

It was a treat for us to be given the palace tour by Divya, who patiently spent almost 2 hours with us taking us to not just the usual common areas, but also to the maharaja and maharani suites and to the rooftop.

Gaurav and his team at the front desk ensured the smoothest checkin and check out process. I also want to acknowledge Indira and Archita from the housekeeping team who catered to all our requests in the rooms and ensured that rooms were always clean and well arranged.

I am sure I have missed out many others who worked to make our trip memorable. I thank you and each member of your team for giving us memories that we will treasure all our lives. We hope to be there again soon in near future to experience the same warmth and hospitality again

Umaid bhawan palace is an excellent property with warm hospitable and attentive staff personnel. Indulgence and relaxation in the calm tranquil palace is to be experienced. The history of the building transports you back in time.

We were welcomed with Rose petals in palace & welcome drinks were served upon check-in.

From front desk Miss Divya took us to our room & while taking us to our room she was kind enough to share the history of the palace with us. Miss Divya briefed us about everything at palace which we can enjoy during our stay from Palace tour to cultural activities and many more.

We had booked historical suite room as they have this old world charm with modern amenities. The room has a separate living room, bedroom, a dressing room with a wardrobe and a grand bathroom with separate shower area, toilet area, a ceramic bathtub and well organised his and her vanity. The utter feeling of staying in such a royal palace was felt in every corner.

Each and every corner of the palace has some significance & grand luxurious feel. Palm court, central dome, pillars, restaurant are architectural marvel.

The food is absolutely detectable and chefs ensure the spice level is as per our palate. A special mention to chef Sandeep sharma & Parmeshwar sharma who ensured food was as per our liking. Both chefs were happy to cook anything for us from continental food to Rajasthani food. You say the name of the cuisine and they’ll serve it to you fresh and delicious on your table with a happy and smiling face.

Mr Raval singh served us delicious food at Risala Restaurant throughout our stay. Basically Mr. Raval singh is from Jodhpur itself and our whole family is fan of Rajasthani cuisine. So he guided us very well from where to buy authentic Rajasthani food ingredients from Local market. He was courteous.

Mr Karan & Saddique took great care of us too while we were having breakfast at restaurant.

Check out procedure was super smooth and we were handed over souvenir as a good bye gift from Hotel Management which was heart touching.

After all it was amazingly memorable experience, the hospitality was par excellence.

The entire team including the front desk, FnB, Housekeeping made sure we are very well looked after. The personal attention given to each guest was commendable.

I once again thank all the staff and taj for the amazing memorable experience.

This hotel has been an iconic place ever since our growing up years. It was only finally now that we got an opportunity to stay at this marvellous splendour. While i could go on and on about the experience but in one line- this was perhaps the best hotel experience one can get and an opportunity to truly live in a palace. Taj's management has added the icing on the cake. The hotel itself has all the legacy and tradition of a 80-90 year old palace- luxurious, ornate and well decorated lobby, dome and the rooms. Our experience was further enhanced by the upgrade to a historical suite. The entire experience starting from the ease of reservation with Harish and the really friendly front desk staff to the grand welcome was overwhelming. Once we reached the hotel, the Taj hospitality and service took over. We couldn't believe the high standards of service that Taj provided starting with the housekeeping services of Berishal Singh to the entire staff. The best part however was the F&B staff. They changed the entire experience of our group. Always willing to help and asking us for every small detail for our food is a hallmark Taj standard. However the team at Umaid Bhawan even surpassed that. The staff team especially Virender and Karan were helpful and courteous. They ensure we were always taken care of. The biggest star for our trip was Chef Sandeep Singh. His food preparations and always smiling approach is what made the difference between a greta holiday and a memorable holiday.

We checked in the hotel at around 5:30pm on 11th September 2021, for a 2-night stay. While making the booking I had mentioned that we are coming to celebrate the occasion of my wife’s birthday. After check-in procedure we were allotted the room no. 509 stating that it is a wonderful room but when we saw the room, the layout of the room was awful. It was disoriented and absolutely no view. When we asked the executive if he had any other option of the rooms, he said because of the occupancy, they don’t have any other rooms. I was really disappointed, so I went to the reception and spoke about it. The executive at the reception also agreed that the allotted room was not great, and he offered us another room No. 502.

This room was decent. As we had road travelled from Jaisalmer, so we planned to have a shower but housekeeping and room cleaning job was not upto the taj standards. The room was not ready for a new check in handover. In the bathtub there was sand particles and in the drainage of the shower there was hair clotting, and the shower was also leaking. Immediately we called the housekeeping and informed them about the same, requested them to do the needful while we were heading for dinner. I had also informed the housekeeping that it is my wife’s birthday, so they apologized and offered us a bubble bath set up. The next day went well but the day we check – in wasn’t that pleasant, little disappointed, as this was my second visit to the palace. Had planned a holiday with lot of expectations, as our first experience was really great.

NOTE: I don’t think I will again plan a vacation here because when you book a palatial property, you expect a royal treatment which wasn’t present in our case. Failed to make first impression this time.

From the moment we entered the Umaid Bhawan Palace, I felt as though we had been transported through time. We experienced exceptional service and support from the Duty Managers, Sabitri and Aishwaryadipta Sarkar, who helped us meet our every desire. The managers of the restaurants ensured we felt special and that we tried local dishes that we otherwise wouldn't have known were so delicious. The poolside service from Chandan was amazingly speedy, and our housekeeping by Chand helped us feel as though we could completely relax in a sparkling clean room. Our favorite interaction was with the older gentleman bartender in the trophy bar who offered both education and unusually delightful drinks. And, the loving kindness of the yoga instructor was memorable. We also enjoyed making cookies with the bakers in the kitchen! This was the most impressive hotel experience we've had in India. Thank you for your excellence.

My wife and I had come for our honeymoon and were here for 3 nights. The hotel was as magnificent and grand as we had expected, it is literally a work of art, something that would be next to impossible to achieve in today's day and age. Everything in this hotel from the architecture, interiors, relics, taxidermy decorations, to the cutlery used conveys the grandeur and royal nature of the property.

The room and washroom were huge and had the decor to remind you that you are in a palace. The bed was easily one of the biggest we had ever slept in. Housekeeping staff was kind enough to decorate the room for us and leave us a cake and a 100% edible horse carriage! They even prepared a bath for us complete with bathing salts, flowers and oils. As one can expect from Taj you always get more than what you ask for in their service.

Food at the hotel was amazing, all their venues had a very unique charm, and the service provided literally made you feel like royalty. At numerous instances we were offered items off the menu, items we had not ordered for us to try, and we were always served more than what we had asked for. The highlight though has the be the breakfast at Pillars, which we would highly recommend to anyone planning a visit here. The view is unreal and the peacocks come very close to you while you are dining. We enjoyed it so much that we did it repeatedly and were willing to wake up as early as 6am on our honeymoon to experience this!

The palace gardens are huge, more than enough for a nice walk. The Maharaja's car collection and the museum on premises are both sites to behold.

We had even opted for a couple's massage at their spa, and it was well worth the money spent. Would highly recommend getting a therapy there.

The highlight though has to be the service, everything at restaurants was served from their hearts, the spa staff was excellent and even the housekeeping staff was very friendly and on their toes to make our stay memorable. We would like to give special mention to Mr. Chandan, Mr. Puneet, Mr. Bhavani, Mr. Kaushik , Ms. Maneesha, and several others (apologies if we have missed out your names), their service is what has made our stay here truly memorable.

Overall, highly recommended, palace hospitality at its finest and if you want to experience being treated like royalty there are few places if any that can beat this.

Its was an enrolment to the 40'ies for my husband and I had planned a surprise staycation for my him. Living in Jodhpur city for almost 35 years we had never experienced the hospitality of the grand Umaid Bhawan Palace. And what I had heard of from others was nowhere near to what I had experienced.
From the time we entered the palace " with a maharaja welcome" to the "easy check in" process Done my Mrs. Alka Vaishnav, she made sure the whole duration we were there was full of surprises and gestures from the staff.
Mr. Narender, Mr. chandan, Mr. Gopal, Mr.Sadique to name a few at RISALA and the biradari area made sure the table was rightly organised and everything rightly done to avoid the last min. rush. We had a private dinner like the Royal Treat and me and my family were extremely lucky to experience that.
The housekeeping Ms. Diksha and staff was so prompt and at service, and fulfilled all requirements also made kids happy with the welcome goodies and books to read.

With such a huge area in deserted land of Rajasthan the staff manages to make sure there is no dust or sand anywhere in w=the whole premises. This is surprising, being a home maker I know how much pain it is to keep the place look always fresh and neat.
The hygiene and cover care was at utmost and that was something very important to us at these times.

This lockdown had definitely impacted our minds and souls and we weren't sure we could have done my husband's Mr.Ritin Khatri's 40th birthday right. But the time we entered the premises till the time we left everything felt like " AN EXPERIENCE FOR LIFETIME" the next day when we met people who came to wish him I could see the happiness and satisfaction when Ritin was sharing his experience at Umaid Bhawan Palace.
The property is definitely 10 on 10 and would be on the high recommendation list.

I once again thank all the staff and taj for the amazing staycation.

What does one say when you stay at the Umaid Bhawan Palace! Right from the moment when my car was sanitized at the main entrance along with my bags due to these pandemic times, to the warm welcome extended to every guest who stays at the Palace, I knew I was going to be very well looked after. As you walk up the flight of steps and enter the main lobby area, you are engulfed in the lap of ultimate luxury. Very warm and friendly staff greet you and help you complete the check-in process. My room was grand and spacious, with every amenity available. The in-room and restaurant dining experience was superlative. Every staff member was impeccably attired, always carried a warm smile and were ever helpful. The meals were delicious and portions were generous. As you walk down the stairway onto the lush green well manicured lawns and look back, that's when you get to truly admire and gaze in awe at the structural wonder of the Umaid Bhawan Palace. Though the real beauty of this majestic and magnificant hotel lies in its illumination after sunset. True beauty to behold! Taj has won the Strongest Brand Award for 2020 and the Umaid Bhawan Palace would rate among the best hotels in the world. My stay and experience at this magnificant hotel made me understand why! Congratulations Team Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel. Take a bow!!

We did a road trip in January this year so we went from Delhi to Agra onto Jaipur then Jodphur and Udiapur over 3 1/2 weeks. The roads are great and we used Driver India Private Tours ( +917838980017) and they provided the excellent vehicle, very professional driver and tour guides when we requested them. Great way to see India.

They do not allow you inside the palace, if you are not staying there. You get access to museum only(public entrance after paying entrance fees). However, at times the palace allows you to make reservation for lunch/dinner at their restaurants(Risala/Pillars). You should call them ahead of time and get confirmation. This will give you access to the palace and its grounds. Hope this helps and good luck!
