Lying in the Aravalli Hills, north of Jaipur, Samode Palace is a magnificent example of Rajput-Mughal architecture and is undoubtedly one of Rajasthan’s finest palace hotels.
With exquisite frescoes and mirror-work throughout the property, the rooms and suites are stunning. A large, sprawling palace with endless different wings, terraces, courtyards and levels, the dreamy rooms are scattered all over the building and each is gorgeous, colourful and unique. The vast Royal Suites, with their balconies and Jacuzzis, are quite fabulous and the sort of rooms you simply don’t want to move out of.
The cuisine is superb and comprises Indian and international menus, whilst the wine list is similarly extensive. The magnificent main pool is the perfect place for a snack in the sun or an outrageously romantic candlelit dinner, whilst the roof terrace pool is beautifully discreet and sits above the exquisite new a la carte dining room. A stroll round the village is an excellent way to discover the more rural side of Rajasthan. Alternatively, a camel ride out into the desert hills at sundown, followed by dinner in the dunes, under the stars, will leave you with similarly strong memories.
Whatever they do at Samode Palace, it is done with style and panache, in true Rajput tradition. This is hospitality at its best.
