Reviewed July 17, 2013

With Present grandson of Maharaja Umaid Singh Ji living in with family in the palace, originally designed by British Architect Henry Lanchester more than half a century ago, it is perhaps the last Royal property to be converted into a Hotel property with creativity of retaining all key elements of original Rajputana concepts of Luxury.

The property consists of 64 Royal Suites, Historical suites and Palace rooms recently renovated to deliver King like experience with modern facilities.

The property provides facilities and services like Spa, Indoor and Outdoor Pool, Local and International cuisine, laundry, Banquet, Meeting Rooms, Business Centre, Fitness Centre, Smoking Room, Bar, Billiards, Dedicated Butler service and pre planned City Tours to cover important key places including local shopping.

The entire staff ever looks forward to fulfil your special needs and some time bizzare requirements.

From Drive in experience to checking out is a dream and experience in itself.

We were more than lucky to be in the palace in off season time and when weather conditions were just becoming comfortable.

Room Tip: The Palce rooms facing baradari and gardens.

My family's recent weekend to Umaid Bhavan Palace was one of the most memorable ever! It was special since we were bringing in my dad's 60th bday & the hotel staff was meticulous in planning every detail & almost felt part of our family. The service levels exceeded all expectations with upgrades to royal suites, customized meals for a large foodie group & a magical evening with dinner at the Baramadari pavillion! Each time we would wonder, "oh that person is so sweet" or "this is how service should be", they would wow us with another remarkably hospitable gesture. Apart from few hiccups with the spa, service was flawless & each person went out of his/her way to make us feel special. We'll never forget Bhopalji lovely smile in the mornings, remembering who like elaichi vs masala in their tea, Amit's delicious muesli, chef's chakka recipe, Vikram's little surprises & true white glove treatment & all the others we interacted with during our amazing weekend! From a family of true Taj loyalists, Umaid has made an special place in our life!

Room Tip: Any room overlooking the lawns is beautiful especially waking up to see the peacocks!

A hotel that transports you in time to the days of the maharaja. A special heritage property with modern amenities and very spacious and comfortable rooms. Have breakfast in the lawn and dinner by candlelight ~ a very romantic and serene hotel. Wonderful for the end of the year or a special celebration. You can understand the steepness of the price but it's really value for money. The Indian food is exceptional - especially the traditional Rajasthani cuisine. You can have it in the restaurant or in the room and its wonderfully set up. Strongly recommend!

Stayed at this hotel a few years back but I still recollect and cherish all the memories that the stay there has given me. It was an exprience which just cant be put into words - The lobby the stairs the lawns garden area huge verandah the hotel building the lighting at the night the welcome the service the food the staff... all was just the best I have ever seen.. GREAT EXPERIENCE AND LIFELONG MEMORIES!!!

The staff is absolutely royal and leaves no stone unturned to let you feel like a king. The decor of the hotel is absolutely unearthly and totally enchanting. The magnanimity of the palace strikes you right at the first sight and when you enter the palace you get the first hand experience of Taj quality and eye for perfection. We explored the hotel pretty much and were left speechless at the shear brilliance of the place. The food was perfect and served in even more perfect way.Truly a heavenly experience and worth every penny!!

Words cannot describe how I felt being treated like a royal in this hotel, housed in an actual palace of ex-jodhpur royalty! The food is reaaly nice abut heavily loaded, you know with butter, fats and silver foils on some...just like the royalty had in their glory days.
The room was nothing short of a palatial chamber, that is maybe because I stayed in one of the suites. The staff are always readdy to go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable.
Only one downer though, the water from the HOT knob was just lukewarm and neither was the cold one much different from it. Their plumbers couldn't even figure out what was wrong, BUT they happily changed my suite though.
