Resort of the Month - Raj Palace

Posted on Fri, 01/06/2012 - 19:02 by easytours
 

One of the most fascinating Heritage establishments in Jaipur, the Raj Palace Hotel is a boutique Hotel with three dozen tastefully decorated rooms and suites. Extensive recent renovations have transformed this already charming heritage retreat to a unique combination of an opulent palace and a luxurious modern hotel, complete with the latest technology.

Formerly a Heritage Hotel, it has now been upgraded to a Grand Heritage Hotel. The Raj Palace offers a high standard of services and is located in the heart of the Pink City of Jaipur.

Unusual among Heritage Hotels, it has the distinction of being completely accessible by wheelchair, and 10 of its rooms are equipped with handicapped accessible bathrooms.

The various royally named rooms include the Prestige Suite, Durbar Suite, Raj Mahal Suite, Swarna Mahal Suite, Khaas Mahal Suite, Historical Suites, Superior Royal Rooms, and Royal Rooms. Luxury amenities such as hypoallergenic pillows, DVD players, and plasma screen televisions further enhance the comfort levels of all the accommodations. Included in the comprehensive renovations are culinary upgrades such as the menu revision at The Shikarbadi (The Royal Bar), which has been equipped with some of the finest wines from 14 countries, thus catering competently to the diverse tastes of its cosmopolitan clientele; the Coffee Shop has been redesigned as a luxury Coffee Lounge. Public areas have been attractively enhanced by 50,000 sq ft. of added open space, and The Maharani Bagh (garden) has been beautifully landscaped

The Raj Palace was built in 1728 A.D. by the Prime Minister of the Raj (the royal family of Jaipur), Thakur Mohan Singhji, and has remained his descendant’s residence until now. Located amidst sprawling verdant gardens, it has been beautified by the major artistic skills of its master craftsmen, with frescoes, stone carvings, artistic mirrors and hand painted works of art further highlighting the appeal of this boutique hotel.
