“Pure luxury”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

I recently stayed at the Samode Palace on 12 February as part of a tour of 11 people from Australia. The rooms were palatial with tasteful furniture. There were photos on the walls of what I presume was former owners of the Palace which added to the ambiance. The food was excellent and the staff were all welcoming and efficient. If you are planning to stay at Samode you should be aware that there are lots of steps to climb so you need to be fairly able bodied. Overall, this was a wonderful experience and I only wish I could have stayed longer.

Stayed February 2014, traveled solo

After a long day traveling I was wondering why I was booked at a hotel another 50 kilometers from the city. But from the moment the Samode Palace Hotel came into sight I was in love with this beautiful Hotel. The setting is picturesque and the place itself is out of a story book.
My room was a suite which was huge with everything you needed but still keeping the authenticity of the palace. The service was exceptional, the food great and the prices very reasonable.
I also indulged in the services of the Day Spa and they were also excellent.
Make sure you ask for a tour of the palace, it is as amazing!

Room Tip: The suites are worth the extra cost.

We stayed in hotel for one night with family. The palace though distant from main highway, is an experience in itself. The rooms, restaurant and facilities like swimming pool etc were very beautifully designed and maintained very well. It give you a feel of living in premium property. The darbar within the palace is the best place to spend sometime. It has excellent work done all over the walls etc. Hotel is slightly expensive and if it was more reasonably priced, would have been excellent value for money.

A visit to a small place called Samode was part of our overall tour of this part of India arranged through Creative Travel and whilst we were originally booked in the Samode Bag we were relocated to the Samode Palace hotel, which was truly a wonderful surprise and joy for us. This hotel is and old kingdom palace in Samode which is owned by the current king of Samode, who still visits and stays at the palace. There are only 43 rooms but in a totally magnificent setting. We were housed in a suite previously used by members of the royal family. Suite was beautifully fitted out with all amenities, including surprisingly excellent free wifi. Two great restaurants serving one serving top class Indian food and the other excellent European and Asian food. Buffet breakfast was first class. Grounds and features of this old palace were just incredible. Staff were courteous and attentive and an excellent reasonably priced gift shop in the court yard. The jewel in the crown of our accommodation in Samode, highly recommended if you visit this mall town.

Room Tip: Try to book on the first level of the hotel, there are grand views and comfort.

Hello, How to Start with & from Where to Start with , this Five-Star***** property Samode Palace is not an Hotel, but it is actually a Palace or we can even say a Beautifull Heaven on Earth which i think everyone should atleast experience once in a lifetime especially when we are Blessed with Human Birth to Feel, experience & Share with Everyone. To describe this Lovely property in words is although very difficult but infact the description of this property will fall short when one will personally visit & see this property. The Warm Welcome for everyone whether Indian or Foreign vistior, makes feel that it`s meant for everyone & no partial treatment to anyone.One will never feel like going away back home, because it is actually Home away from Home.
It`s Beautifull Location on the outskirts of Rajasthan, it`s Serenity makes one Comfortable, Calm & Soothing to one`s Soul which we can necer feel anywhere else.All the rooms are designed differently to match everyone`s needs which is all under one roof.This property is just Uncomparable with any other Hotel property in the world.The food is superb & as per the taste of every visitor. It seems like Lord Vishwakarma himself has designed this property.

Room Tip: All the rooms are Excellent & we get our Money`s worth back if we select this property as our St...

Visited Samode once again after a month's break and what more can one say - their restaurant in the Palace is outstanding. Whilst the buffet is pretty standard for a 5 star ++++ property, the choice and quality of their al la carte menu is excellent - one does not expect such gourmet food in such a location and it's coupled with excellent service. This was a quick visit but please, please take your time off at Samode and spend some time there - well worth it - the outstanding painted rooms - some of which are 400 years ago are outstanding works that Shekhawati is renowned for - none better than at Samode Palace.

This is a bit of a late offer about this hotel we stayed Dec 2012. Its a wonderful setting and we had a superb room suite overlooking the courtyard below the palace. Very romantic setting lovely bathroom and balcony.

There are magnificent spectacular rooms in the palace that show off it's splendor and these can be explored and you can climb the steps to a fort above the hotel where there are great views.

The service was excellent and the food ok but not outstanding I would say it was possibly a little rundown but still very good.
