Gangapole, Jaipur - 302002 Rajasthan, India.
|| The winner of the award for the best Heritage hotel in the country, for 5 consecutive years, the Palace has been meticulously restored offering a retreat into an aesthetically beautiful environment where visitors can enjoy India's natural beauty and rich history.
Samode Palace is one of India's most charming and romantic hotels. It offers a quiet, elegant and luxurious atmosphere. Considered India's finest hotel for its consummate standards of modern hospitality, accommodation, services, cuisine and amenities, it is the flagship of the Samode Hotels.
The Samode Palace hotel maintains an immutable majestic presence and is a touching reminder of the vision of its creators.
Nestles among the 'Aravali ranges'-(a very old formation of banded gneiss dating back to some 3 thousand million years) about 42 Kms. north-west of Jaipur, Samode Palace is reached by a short road from Chandwaji where it branches off the Delhi-Jaipur highway. The Samode Palace comes into view like a mirage rising above cobbled streets and stone houses of the village of Samode.
Each of the 43 spacious rooms and suites all with a balcony or patio are exclusive and are decorated in the warm colours and textures of local Rajasthani hand block print textiles and adorned with traditional artifacts.
The interiors inspired by traditional design themes reach their fullest expression in the intricate marblework, woodwork and fabrics that accentuate the guest rooms. The spacious rooms with marble, mosaic floorings, high ceilings, cotton woven rugs "durries", antiques and beautifully carved four poster beds provide a sense of luxury.
