Samode Palace in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

This 150-year-old majestic and regal Rajput-Mughal architectural masterpiece is nested on a hilltop in the Aravallis. The hotel is like something out of Aladdin, a fairytale palace. As you walk through the doors, you will feel like a ancient maharajah, and you will be treated as one. Each room is very spacious and is beautifully furnished with antique pieces. No two rooms are alike. There are two restaurants, one is fine dining, specializing in modern Indian cuisine, the other a multi-cuisine restaurant with buffets for breakfast and lunch, and ŕ la carte for dinner.

Wake up in your sumptuous Royal Suite, with a private balcony, Jacuzzi and opulent interior and be ready to be treated as a king or queen. After a Pantagruel breakfast, be ready to explore the neighborhood, and take in the fragrant Indian pink roses blooming in the morning sun. In the afternoon, get outdoors for a bird watching walk with the resident naturalist. In the late afternoon, unwind with an Ayurveda or Balinese massage in the spa, or sip a drink by one of the two pools. After a delicious meal, end your day on the rooftop, where the stars reflecting in the infinity pool will inspire magical dreams of royal splendor.

This is a beautiful hotel in an old palace. The rooms (we were upgraded to a suite) are huge with a sitting area, balcony, and huge bathroom. There is a safe and hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities and TV. The beds are large and comfortable. It is a short walk to Samode village and there are many handicraft places there where they will be very happy to haggle prices for their wares. Within the hotel the staff were very attentive, but it was like they were all wanting a tip for something despite there being a communal tip box. It is worth taking the tour of the palace, which is stunning. Breakfast is good and varied and the meals in the evening are also tasty - but a bit pricey. It is worth staying for a night for the experience, but overall overpriced.

One of the main lure to check in at Samode Palace over a long weekend is the assurance of a great spa time. No-frills spa that focuses on the right treatment, quiet and well-kept ambiance and great therapists. Elsa was my therapist and she took away all my stress with her nimble- yet--trained hands. The palace, of course, is always impeccable with a great service that's warm and genuine.

This is an historical place and maintained very well. The rooms are quite specious and clean.. If you want to experience the palatial lifestyle and happen to be here, please stay here for a night at least. Overall, we enjoyed more at the Samode Bagh.

This is an amazing hotel in every way. There are five things that really stand out though: 1. The palace itself - opulence in every way 2. The village outside the palace - great for walking around, although you will get some, but limited, hassle from hawkers. Bangles are the thing to buy here (we bought some from a family in a small shop if you take a left just off the main street (before you reach the craft centre) 3. The service and the food - top class (there is a shared tipping option on check-out that means you don't tip each member of staff during your stay, but can do so in one go at the end) 4. The infinity pool at the top of the hotel - a wonderful place to be (the other pool is excellent too) 5. The rooms - we had a suite which had plenty of space) The hotel is about an hour's drive from Jaipur which means that spreading a visit to Jaipur over two days means that you lose a lot of time. We got all the Jaipur sightseeing done in one day, which meant that we had a full day of luxurious relaxation on the second day as part of our three night stay. Some people we met stayed in the centre of Jaipur one night and then moved to Samode Palace. Breakfast is great quality, lunches can be had in the courtyard or poolside, dinner has two menu options (Indian and European) - I can thoroughly recommend the Indian menu which can be had outside or inside one of the opulent dining rooms. We didn't take any local excursions offered by the hotel, such as the camel ride or the visit to the sister hotel (Samode Bagh, more of a garden type hotel nearby that looked lovely). I heard that there is another Samode hotel in the centre of Jaipur which one fellow guest said was excellent too). The maharaja still lives in part of the palace and has a collection of antique cars. If you do stay, which I thoroughly recommend, make sure you allow a full day of leisure to enjoy the hotel.

The good-humored driver picked me up and drove me to Samode Palace. Outside in the parking lot, I met a guide responsible for guiding me inside the Palace. I did not think that we were on the same wave length but as soon as he took my photos with my iPad, I realized that we had something in common, we both appreciate art. Although, I was tired from lack of sleep for several days, I only slept a few hours each day, I made myself bend, twist and feel an emotion, hopefully happiness as he photographed me in the palace. Samode Palace reminded me of an opulent doll house. I enjoyed myself feeling the luxury of the place, while the guide took photos of me.
