Luxury Holidays At Umaid Bhawan Palace

The stunning Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace was built between 1928 and 1943 for His Highness Maharaja Umaid Singhji, grandfather of the present Maharaja, to symbolise a new Jodhpur and give employment to the local people during a time of great drought and famine. Principle residence of the Jodhpur royal family, and one of the world's largest private residences, the imposing palace is a magnificent golden-hued sandstone monument set amidst twenty-six acres of verdant landscaped gardens, designed by the Edwardian architect, Henry Lanchester, who gained inspiration from eastern and western influences, with a dash of Art Deco thrown in to give (what was then) a contemporary twist. Guests are escorted to their accommodation by the Royal Butler, who will also be happy to offer a fascinating guided tour through the Palace's rich Art Deco interiors and gardens to see the billiard room, underground pool, marble squash courts, whispering gallery, croquet lawns, tennis courts and stables (guests can also visit the hotel's museum). Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace is a member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World'.

Culture & History

Just outside of the breathtaking monument, Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, lies the Blue City of Jodhpur and its realm of winding, medieval streets, filled with shops and bazaars selling everything you could imagine. Follow the scent of incense as you meander between the 16th century city walls and admire the striking structure of Mehrangarh Fort as it towers 120 metres above Jodhpur's skyline, before heading back down to the windy and narrow passageways of the bright blue Old City, each offering plenty of insight into this region's royal history.


Amidst this former royal residence and it's twenty-six acres of lush gardens, indulge as a couple in a romantic getaway. Although expansive and exuding a sense of grandeur, Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace offers plenty of private spaces in all areas, perfect for partners to break away from the bustling atmosphere of the busy city outside. Luxuriate in a side-by-side spa treatment, dine amid a private setting of your choice or stroll through the hotel gardens together as candles and twinkling lights guide you - the possibilities are endless.

Spa & Wellness

Jiva Grande Spa offers an holistic wellness experience through signature treatments, Ayurveda and yoga. There's also a gorgeous indoor swimming pool, a heated outdoor pool, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi, relaxation lounge and a hair salon.
