Samode Palace - Jaipur / Rajasthan
A splendid example of regal Indo-Saracenic architecture, the Palace combines the best of Indian and Mughal styles. The 475-year-old palace is a celebration of the senses, underlined at all times by contemporary luxury and the signature service of Samode hotels - a magical hospitality and rare courtesy.
Guests are known to want to lose themselves in the maze of bougainvillea covered courtyards, connected by quaint narrow staircases and chance upon lounges adorned by charming arches, stunning mirror work, exquisitely painted walls and ceilings. Royal suites and rooms surround the courtyards, each with their unique personality and décor.
The 4 royal suites, 20 deluxe suites and 19 spacious rooms of Samode Palace redefine the word comfort. Each room, with its own unique personality, is elegantly and luxuriously furnished. Four poster-beds draped with sheer, delicate fabric and exquisitely carved couches invite you to relax completely. The flowers follow you everywhere - from the courtyards and the painted lounges to the charming prints on the flowing curtains and linen that softly brush against you, the rose petals in your bathtub and your Jacuzzi to the beautiful intricate patterns on the rich carpets beneath your feet.
FOOD & WINE
The buffet breakfast is served in the courtyard under the shade of trees and the chirping of birds, with the excellent staff who cheerfully suggest what you may enjoy. The two restaurants offer a choice of royal Rajasthani delicacies or scrumptious Asian and European fare. Stunning murals vie with the food in stealing your attention. Evening cocktails by the poolside or a romantic candle-lit dinner at the terrace garden catch the starlight of the clear Rajasthani nights. Of course you may prefer in-room dining if you can't tear yourself away from the magnificence of your residence.
The Palace has an extensive wine cellar, with a handpicked and expert choice of both International and Indian varietals.
