Located a few miles outside the Pink City, the Rambagh Palace can trace its history back to 1835, when a garden house was constructed for the wet nurse of Prince Ram Singh II. It later became a hunting lodge for the maharaja and later still, in the early 20th century, adapted and expanded to form a palace. The Taj group now run it as a luxury hotel, one of the finest in India. 78 fabulous rooms and suites have retained the décor style of those opulent interiors. Mahogany panelling, silks and brocades for drapes and bedding, antique furniture and marble bathrooms help to create spaces that are fit for royalty. There’s a sumptuous spa, pool and golf putting green to keep you amused. Eat in, at the ostentatious but exquisite dining room.
Check in is a somewhat overwhelming experience at the Rambagh Palace, but in a good way. The palace horsemen, who ride out to the sounds of shehnai music – a reed instrument a little like an oboe – and trumpeting elephants, greet guests. That welcome is followed up by the aarti ceremony and the placing of a tika on the forehead; performed by women in traditional Rajasthani costume it’s believed to bring good luck.
