Never stayed in a palace before and this building fitted the bill. the building is extraordinary with huge gardens with peacocks. The staff were extremely keen to please and were very helpful and courteous.

Fantastic welcome was accorded with a 4 guard canopy cover honour, garlands and the traditional tilak on the forehead. The evening was spent going around the palace building and lot of information was given about the palace, its surroundings and its rulers. This was a champagne included tour...

Great experience !

Amazing city! Enjoyed the most fantastic service I've ever encountered. Gorgeous food, beautiful vistas & lovely gardens with roaming peacocks. Wow - a once in a lifetime experience. The hotel was truly exceptional

Fantastic welcome was accorded with a 4 guard canopy cover honour, garlands and the traditional tilak on the forehead. The evening was spent going around the palace building and lot of information was given about the palace, its surroundings and its rulers. This was a champagne included tour and one could easily be transported to the grand old days of excess. We were upgraded from a standard room to the next level and the rooms were fabulous and the cloak room and extended bathroom were very good.The balcony was very spacious. The Palace itself is not garish or bright nor an air of flamboyant arrogance about it. The huge stone structures are no way romantic, but it gives people a sense of security. It is a grand structure and although one could marvel its mammoth walls, the interiors could be lit much more and the central dome area airconditioners work well, it could easily beat the Jodhpur heat.
It is, as many people mentioned, a once in a lifetime experience, but if one is expecting an ultra modern HOTEL outlook, you could easily get better. This is a Palace and the peacocks, swimming pool, the breakfast and exemplary welcome and smiling staff is definitely worth a revisit. The food quality is world class and the breakfast spread a Grand Royal Treat.The Trophy bar and the adjoining Risala restaurant were grand. We lived like the royals for a night. One really felt very very good. Well done staff for according a grand welcome and making us feel special. I have tried my very best to be as fair as possible to TA readers.

Room Tip: The lawn facing rooms offer better view. Huge discounts available now during offseason and it helps if you have stayed at other Taj properties around the area. Savour the bar and restaurant instead of in room dining.

I stayed at Taj Umaid Bhawan during our Jodhpur business trip with my company colleague and have promised myself once again book in this winter season for my family vacation. The dishes were testy, especially morning buffet breakfast with hot ginger tea. My I had taken morning ginger tea with my friends. I was feeling so excitement while taking tea. This moment was so pleasant as well as amazing morning sightseeing of the Taj Umaid Bhawan. Due to busy business meeting with our cooperate client we didn’t get more time to travel across Jodhpur and also hotel. But I have decided to spend 15days in this hotel with my family, so that I can enjoy every single sightseeing of this beautiful city and hotel. But this time I had decided to reserve the hotel Taj Umaid Bhawan through a travel agent called Toursnorthindia.com, they told me to give 20% off.
