Jaipur: In the past, people were born into royalty. Nowadays, royalty is how you feel and no matter who you are and where you are from, we all want to feel a touch of royalty.
Jaipur, the magnificent capital of Rajasthan, also known as the ‘Pink City’, is a hub for tourists and visitors from all over the world, looking to explore and discover the rich history, glorious legacy and multifaceted culture of the Rajputana. The city was painted in hues of pink in 1876 to welcome the Prince of Wales.
Basking in the iconic culture and heritage of royal Rajasthan, taking every guest on an elegant journey back in time when chivalry and subtle luxuries were part of daily life
A 20-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of the Pink City, lies an oasis of royalty and luxury – the flagship property of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, India’s one and only. Nestled peacefully in the majestic Aravalli hills, Fairmont Jaipur is inspired by the Mughal dynasty and the Royal Rajput imperials.
It is spread over 3.5 acres with 245 rooms including seven suites, a perfect blend of traditional Rajasthani décor and top of the art modern amenities, making each visitor feel like an honoured guest of the Mughal era. The property stands tall basking in the iconic culture and heritage of royal Rajasthan, taking every guest on an elegant journey back in time when chivalry and subtle luxuries were part of daily life.
Beginning with the ‘five senses’ welcome, with the sound of gongs and showers of petals as you enter the palace’s enormous wooden doors, you are greeted with traditional Rajasthani instrumental songs while you step into their ‘chaarbaug’. Fairmont offers several unforgettable Instagram opportunities for its guests.
Guest rooms at Fairmont Jaipur exude classic heritage influences with four poster beds, camel bone inlaid furniture and amazing walk-in bathrooms with their very own ‘hammam’ style tub that has been hand-carved out of a single block of stone! The beauty of the rooms however lies in the intimate details.
