About Umaid Bhawan Palace
Set amid 26 acres of amply landscaped gardens, overlooking Jodhpur, the capital of Rajasthan, lies the majestic Umaid Bhawan Palace. Inaugurated in 1943, the palace blends art deco and traditional Rajasthani architectural styles with a striking 105-foot high cupola, gilt furnishings, and exotic murals.
Jodhpur's royal family is still in residence here, and the Jiva Grande, with private treatment suites with individual showers, saunas, Jacuzzis, and aromatic soak tubs, is designed to make guests feel like royalty.
The 64-room property offers two swimming pools, one overlooking the Mehrangarh fort, and Umaid Bhawan's lush lawns and Royal Gardens lure meditative strolls, croquet games, or conversation in an authentic Indian baradari, a stone building with multiple doors.
