A majestic marble staircase, fresh flowers adorning the bespoke furniture, assorted wall designs – all lit up under ornate chandeliers for the extra hint of exclusivity. Perhaps the grandeur of movies is far from reality. And that’s because there’s an even grander setting nestled in Rajasthan that completely bowled us over.
Jaipur’s royal seat, The SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace, opened doors to the world as a boutique hotel earlier this year. The fifteen rooms, redesigned by Adil Ahmad, are the epitome of fine royalty amalgamated with a particularly modern luxury. From Queen Elizabeth II to Lord Mountbatten, the hotel has hosted numerous noble dignitaries in its lavish chambers, which are today, named after their guests. Once a British residency, the palace has been a home to Rajmata Gayatri Devi of Jaipur, who was lauded for her beauty and glamorous style. The hotel now attracts the crème-de-la-crème of travellers from India and abroad.
Behold your senses for what lies below. Here’s a glimpse into the SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace.
