to a Grand Experience - A Splendid Example of the Indo-Colonial
and the art-deco style of the thirties, Umaid Bhawan is
one of the largest and grandest private residences in the
world. The palace was built between 1929 and 1943 and over
3000 artisans worked over 14 years to create this magnificent
choice of 98 rooms and suites. Each room appointed with
the furniture originally created for the Palace. Surpassing
the splendour of the other guest rooms are the Maharaja
& Maharani Suites originally used by Maharaja Umaid
Singh his Maharani. In the foyer leading to these suites
is a musical fountain made entirely of English crystal.
Some of the old retainers of the royal husehold are still
there to serve the needs of present day guests with the
gracious hospitality that has always been a unique hallmark
of the Palace.
