The Bissau Palace

Located away from the bustling city center, the unimagined beauty of the Bissau Palace is beheld only by eyes of travelers who choose this place over others for a luxurious retreat. Walking through the hotel confines is like traveling back in time on a royal odyssey. Although this 200 year old palace was built in the 18th Century, it was the dynamic Thakur Rawal Raghubir Singhji who transformed the palace in the 1920s. The ruler's artistic sensibilities are well-reflected in the grand lounge and library of the hotel, with walls creatively depicting his illustrious lineage, along with traditional artifacts, portraits and armory possessed by the royal family. The ancient photographs placed in this space are a reminder of the rich heritage of the palace. However, the truly magnificent experience lies in soaking in the sheer comfort of one of their 51 rooms, each meticulously maintained with antique furniture marked by traditional frescoes and local art. Their restaurants Bhuwaneshwari and Sheesh Mahal exude the same palatial grandeur, serving equally lavish Indian and Continental specialties in their intricately designed arty decor. After soaking in this richness, enjoy a camel safari arranged by the hotel, which tours Jaipur and the quaint villages surrounding the city. A perfect end to this exquisite indulgence is to plunge into the refreshing pool or enjoy panoramic views of the city on their rooftop Chandini restaurant.

Umaid Mahal

Located along one of the inconspicuous lanes of Bani Park, Umaid Mahal is still a fine choice for a budget stay despite its rather obscure location. With all of its ornate frescoes and traditional interior decor within the rooms, it's no exaggeration to say that Umaid Mahal has an ambiance fit for a miniature palace of sorts. A pool set against a scenic fort-like backdrop, and a majestic gold painted restaurant, Tehkhana, are an extension to the palatial theme of this hotel. Offering its guests a Wi-Fi facility, Umaid Mahal strikes a perfect balance between traditional beauty and modern comforts. All this at a price so low, it's no surprise that the rooms are perennially full, peak season or not!
