Owned by the royal family, this grand retreat in a 300-year-old pink mansion is nestled on 10 acres of trimmed lawns and colorful flower beds in central Jaipur. The décor of the 13 guest lodgings and two villas mixes bold, flamboyant color schemes with traditional furnishings, including family photographs, antique furniture and original paintings. The Palace Suite features a large chandelier, lavender custom-designed wallpaper and a Persian carpet and is augmented by a sitting area with ample room for relaxation. One of the two spacious Royal Apartments offers a private terrace with a heated plunge pool and personal butler service. Dining options include the Orient Occident for traditional regional cuisine and colorful 51 Shades of Pink for breakfast. There is also the atmospheric Polo Bar, a lovely outdoor art deco-style unheated swimming pool, a small fitness room and a spa. Tailor-made culinary tours and photographic walks can be arranged.
