Reading Time: 2 minutes

There is yet another feather in the cap of Jaipur’s iconic hotel, ‘Taj Rambagh Palace’ which has been declared among the top 10 heritage hotel properties in the world. This ranking was declared only on Wednesday this week by the prestigious travel publication of the United Kingdom, ‘Travel Weekly’. Among the rankings the Rambagh is placed at the 6th rank. It is the only heritage hotel in the country to feature in this list.

 The magazine quotes the renowned travel company, Cox & Kings which describes the 19th century Palace as one of the best selling hotels among higher-end clients. It goes on to say that originally a hunting lodge of the Maharaja of Jaipur, it was converted into a hotel in 1957.

The magazine further adds that “The Palace now houses 78 restored rooms and suites with elaborate décor filling the interiors, hand- carved marbles latticework, sandstone balustrades and ornate cenotaphs. Guests can explore the Mughal Gardens and dine in what was once the Palace Ballroom, complete with crystal chandeliers and 18th century French architecture… or try yoga, meditation and Indian treatments at the Spa, safe in the knowledge they’re staying somewhere that is, quite literally fit for a prince.”

The General Manager of the hotel, Mr. Manish Gupta said that the ranking has only reiterated their conviction of providing top class luxury and services. Delighting the customer has always been the forte at the Rambagh Palace managed by the Taj Group, he said.
