CONTINUOUSLY CURATED COLLECTION
Here are some of the extraordinary properties we have chosen for our Bespoke and Classic adventures…
UMAID BHAWAN PALACE
The fabulously palatial Umaid Bhawan is still the home of Jodphur’s erstwhile royals. Being a guest at the Umaid Bhawan isn’t like staying in a palace hotel, it’s like staying in a real palace as the guests of the royal family; surrounded by their books in the library, paintings on the wall, and stunning original furniture.
An Oberai masterpiece, the Udaivilas was recently ranked #1 on the Travel+Leisure World’s Best Awards list of Top 100 Hotel. Set beside the city’s Lake Pichola, this archiectural tour de force of interconnecting domes, walkways flooded with sunlight, and 50 acres of gardens is not to be missed.
Near the centre of the country’s most important city, the Leela looks like a modern palace. The magnificent architecture represents the grace and elegance of Lutyen’s Delhi and it elegantly lives up to its looks with masterful service and luxe amenities. Guests revel in its sweet calm amidst the captial’s exciting pizzazz.
THE OBEROI, MUMBAI
Wonderfully situated on Marine Drive, with soothing ocean vistas and simulating nighttime views of Mumbai’s golden crescent of shoreline lights. The Oberoi, Mumbai features 24-hour spa, butler and concierge service. Its four restuarants cover the culinary spectrum & its suites are elegantly furnished.
Set in 40-acres of lovingly tended gardens, Gateway Ganges is a soothing contrast to Varanasi’s wonderful bustle and sensory spectacle. The hotel offers 24-hour room service, a fitness centre, a swimming pool and top-notch restaurant which makes the Gateway a lovely addition to the holy city.
Highly ranked on Travel+Leisure‘s list of Top Resorts in Asia, the Amervilas enjoys a unique position – just 2,000 feet from the Taj Mahal – and each bedroom looks out at the Taj with an uninterrupted vista. Guests can unwind with a cocktail at the only bar in the world with Taj Mahal views.
THE RAMBAGH PALACE
Promises of being pampered like a maharajah or maharani are travel industry clinché, but in the case of Jaipur’s Rambagh Palace reality is even more regal. Guests enjoy royal treatment in the very home of Maharajah Sawai Man Singh II (1912-1970), Jaipur’s last remaining maharajah.
RANTHAMBHORE NATIONAL PARK
Vanyavilas luxury tents here are reminiscent of the heyday of the Mughals and the Rajputs, when royal caravans rested under magnificant tents in the Rajasthani desert. This temperature-controlled, four-poster-bedded tents reek ultimate luxury; and each come with their own elegant stand-alone baths.
THE TAJ MAHAL HOTEL
The Taj Mahal Hotel speaks of class, sophiscation and style and is a proud examplar of Taj Hotels’ commitment to contemporary comfort and deeply traditional service. Centrally located in New Delhi, the Taj Mahal Hotel is a favoured gathering place for diplomats, business big shots, and us.
