Almost no other region in India combines the glory of the past with the exotic nature of the terrain as impressively as Rajasthan. In recent years, the full splendor of the palace hotels of the Rajputes has been fully revived.
The City Palace has changed little over the past hundred years and part of the building is still used as a residence by the royal family. The Palace Of The Winds, Hawa Mahal, is the most popular tourist destination in Jaipur as it typifies the romantic Western notion of exotic India.
The Laxmi Vilas Palace Hotel is an ideal location from which to observe the regionís birdlife. Surrounded by meadows and yet still only three kilometres from the historic centre of Bharatpur, the hotel has both a rural and urban ambience.
To experience what itís like to be a king is to experience the Samode Palace, an award-winning hotel that has frequently been ranked among the top ten hotels in the world.
The sheer unadulterated pleasure of spending a night in the Lake Palace Hotel in Udaipur does not come cheap. However, the breathtaking splendor of its 77 rooms and 17 suites is well worth the price tag!
The exceptional palace hotels of the Rajputes, along with all the incomparable charm and unique atmosphere of a golden epoch, take those who come here back to a time of supreme grandeur and superlative luxury.
