As part of a business trip to Delhi, we decided to go to Jaipur. We always look for the best place to stay based on trip advisor comments and travel magazines. The Rambagh Palace is now the best place we have ever stayed in the world ...better than the Cirajan Palace in Turkey, the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, and the Ritz in Paris.

The walled Palace has the same security as seen around the White House in Washington DC with hydraulic barriers that come from the ground at the entrance gate. Upon arrival, flower petals were showered on us and we were whisked away to our room with our butler (BTW, "room" is an understatement). The elegance and attention to detail cannot be topped. Water bottles are wrapped in a sleeve of silk and tied with a ribbon. Fruit and wine welcome are set on the table. Pressing is available for clothes that did not travel well. A K-cup coffee/tea service is available - but we would suggest tea on the veranda instead.

We had fine dining the first night and were not disappointed in any element. Service and food were both spot on - and coming from Chicago with Trotter's, Alinea, Next, and Tru - this is a statement.

The second day, we cut our touring short to be able to relish in the opulence of the Palace and took in the local dancing and music that preceded our dinner on the terrace. My husband had traditional Indian cuisine - I mixed it up a bit and ordered a wild mushroom risotto that was such comfort after many days of curry that I could have hugged the Chef.

I wish we could have stayed a few more days to enjoy the spa and the indoor and outdoor pools ...and many more meals of exquisite cuisine. But sadly the week trip had to end.

We cannot thank our hosts enough for maintaining such a wonderful Palace and will keep this location on our list of "come back to" hotels.

Special thanks to Messrs. Parvinder, Shobhit, and Fazal for the education of the Palace and your hospitality.

This is the best hotel we stayed in; in fact it would rival most hotels we have stayed in anywhere in the world. The grounds and gardens are immaculately tended, and the rooms are spacious and superbly comfortable. However, it was all the little "things" that set it apart as a special place. The breakfast buffet had the most attractive array of fruits and cold collations; the hot dishes ordered were attractively presented. Similarly, the cuisine for dinner was wide ranging and delicious. The service all over the hotel was impeccable - always offered with a gracious smile. We felt pampered and special for the two days we spent there.

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Rambagh, and it was one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in.....first, how can you top "living" in a palace, which is known as Jewel of the Jaipur? It was the former residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur - and it is truly a jewel. And the welcome is quite something - greeting by musicians and dancers and showered with rose petals!

The rooms are all beautiful - all a bit different, with fine Indian architecture and furnishings. We had a suite with a garden view in the back - not a great view but the room was just gorgeous. It had every amenity we could want - and a large, modern bathroom with both a tub and shower. The walls of our room were richly painted and most of the suite was richly carpeted.

The grounds are magnificent and beautifully manicured. There are also an indoor and outdoor pool, and spa services. While we did not use the pool or spa, we did walk around the pool gardens, which are very peaceful. There was a santouk (interesting instrument akin to a zither!) player in the pool garden area playing soft, gentle music with whom we talked and he explained his instrument. A horse-drawn carriage is available for complimentary rides around the property - quite fun and recommended, if you have the time. The lobbies seem to have a full-time "petal" designer who just arranges the most beautiful floral patterns....quite unique.

The hotel has beautiful shops with many temptations - most notably the jewelry. Prices did not seem out of balance with the quality offered.

We had a late luncheon buffet in the Rajput Room, which offered quite a variety of Indian foods - everything we tasted was delicious. An option was outside seating, as well, overlooking the front lawn. Both mornings we ate a scrumptious and plentiful buffet breakfast. We had a cocktails and a grand dinner at Mubarak Mahal, near the front lawn. Dinner had at least 40 chafing dishes to select from!

The only jarring note - which would be true of just about any place one stays in India (but particularly if you're staying in a Palace) is the great disparity in what you see outside the walls vs. how you live inside the walls.

The Rambagh Palace is not an inexpensive experience, but how often does one get to stay in a real Palace? However, this place was a real 5-star property, it made us feel like royalty and we thought we received good value for our money. If we return to Jaipur, we will stay here again!

Room Tip: Because it was a palace, the rooms are all different sizes and shapes. We stayed in a suite with ga...

We stayed for 1 night at the Taj and the experience was superb. In fact, this is one of the best hotels I stayed at in India. Hotel stands in international standards, including a la carte menu, housekeeping with high level of hygene (definitely a must while in India) and delectable cuisine. Rooms were comfy and well illuminated, facing a nice artificial landscape overlooking a beautiful view. I must also mention the breakfast, which was especially enjoyable. We originally booked the hotel after seeing it in a 007 movie - and were not disappointed. Take it.

Room Tip: Splurge and don't skip the 5 o'clock at the garden

My husband and I arrived at Rambagh Palace from a very hectic Agra and seeing the Taj Mahal. We were greeted on arrival with rose petals being thrown at us and our photo being taken. Check in was done in our room and very swift and easy. We were given a tour of the beautiful palace. Our room was incredible, really spacoius, lovely attention to detail and the turn down service was impeccable. There is a great steam train on site where we ate the most amazing pizzas, a nice treat from curry.
The pool area was perfect place to relax after a heavy morning of sightseeing. Water, smoothies, sorbets and fresh ginger ale being brought to you at just the right times. We have stayed at lots of hotels around the world and this place is definately up there in my top 5. It is quite expensive but then the service, food and general overall experience is worth every single penny!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 121 which was amazing!

We spent two nights at the Rambagh Palace and just loved it! From our arrival, with the rose petals scattered over us from above, to the complimentary upgrade to an Historical Suite and dinner at the Savarna Mahal Restaurant organised by our private butler, I felt like royalty. If you want to stay in one of the best and spoil yourself, this is the hotel for you ...
