Luxury Escapes India- Tour Resplendent Rajasthan like a Royal
Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

What makes Rajasthan a popular destination for luxury escapes in India?

Is it the forts or the sand dunes, the tribal dances or the music, the heritage or the unique cuisine, the wildlife or the contrasts and colors? Perhaps a bit of everything.

Rajasthan, the Desert Jewel of India, is an exotic state where the past and present glory of royalty combines with time-tested traditions. The steeped in cultural heritage land, is well known for its vibrancy. Both the essence of the desert and dominance of colour is interwoven within the very social fabric of Rajasthan’s culture. The unique mixture of culture, heritage, exotic locales with its regional cuisine, sand dunes and lush green forests with its endemic wildlife, together create a land of unparalleled beauty and mystic charm.

The charm of Rajasthan has drawn admirers from the world over, and today it has acquired a reputation of being a world class luxury destination.

Resplendent Rajasthan is dotted with luxury hotels and resorts, offering top notch services to their clients. In fact, tourists are spoilt for choices today. But the true experience of royalty lies in visiting the magnificent kingdoms, exploring the majesty of the historical palaces and forts, going on safaris and so on.

Rajasthan is a preferred destination for luxury escapes in India. Especially if you have a taste and admiration for all things royal.  Perhaps that’s why Rajasthan is a preferred venue for royal themed weddings to celebrity retreats, movie shoots to yogis seeking enlightenment.

Here’s our pick of things to do and places to see in Rajasthan:

Explore Jaipur

Jaipur – Royal Destination of Rajasthan

Jaipur or the pink city is said to be ranked amongst the top 10 best places to visit in India. It offers an irresistible mix of cultural centers, museums, historical sites, and fabulous shopping.

There are plenty of historical monuments and sights to be seen here. To begin with, the Amber Fort situated on a ridge just beyond the city limits. Here you will be presented with the unique opportunity to ride an elephant through the fort and take a tour of the City Palace. The Fort, completed in the early 18th century, offers a fascinating insight into the lifestyle of the Mughal dynasty, while City Palace, mostly accessible to the public, albeit still serving as home to the Maharaja lets you glimpse the past through the royal antiques and artefacts housed here.

Next, visit the Hawa Mahal “Palace of the Winds”, Jal Mahal (Water Palace) and the open-air Jantar Mantar Observatory to admire the vast array of astronomical instruments displayed.

Visit the bazaar and taste the cuisine

While in Jaipur you must make it a point to visit the colourful bazaar. Here you can get a peek into the region’s unique handicrafts- blue potter, handmade puppets and so on. The bazaar is more than a commercial hub, as this is where you will get to try out the local cuisine at its authentic best. When visiting the Jal Mahal make sure you visit Cinnamon, the in house restaurant that takes its guests on a regal gastronomic voyage through the delicacies once prepared in the kitchens of Rajasthan’s royalty. Further, the Kalwara House allows you the option to even learn the secrets of Indian cuisine, in private cooking sessions.

Forts and Temples of  Jodhpur and Udaipur

Known as Rajasthan’s royal city, Jodhpur is situated on the perimeter of the Thar Desert and hosts a number of forts and palaces. Here you’ll visit Meherangarh Fort positioned on a high natural rock bluff and offering a spectacular panorama of the bustling city below. There’s also Jaswant Thada – the Royal Cenotaphs built in around 1899 and Umaid Public gardens. Later, drive to Udaipur, famed as the most romantic local city. A guided sightseeing here will take you to the City Palace, Ranakpur Jain Temples (the glorious 15th century Jain temples) and a boat ride on the iridescent waters of Lake Pichola towards Jag Mandir Island. It is advisable that you visit Udaipur with a couple of days in hand as it has much to offer in terms of royal locales, lakes and romantic things to do.

Ranthambhore National Park Safari

There is nothing more royal than the Royal Bengal Tiger. Make your Rajasthan tour all the more memorable with a tiger safari in Ranthambhore National Park- the majestic Bengal Tiger’s natural habitat.
