Luxury holidays in Rajasthan

With its maharaja’s palaces, dazzling sari fabrics and swathes of russet-red desert, Rajasthan and its hubs of Jaipur, Jodhpur and tiger-toting Ranthambore National Park is the stuff of fairy tales.

Destinations in Rajasthan

  • Bikaner’s princely past is visible in the palaces, fortresses and temples that line the city’s streets. The locally favoured method for crossing sand planes or just strutting along a bustling street is the camel – so popular they have their own festival.
  • Jaipur is the stuff of fairy tales: hilltop forts and majestic palaces, polo-playing princes and brightly painted elephants, moustachioed men in glorious turbans and the Technicolor swirl of saris.
  • Rising from the edge of the Thar Desert in western Rajasthan is the beautiful blue city of Jodhpur. The horizon is dominated by the mighty Mehrangarh Fort, a 15th-century clifftop palace that towers above the mediaeval skyline.
  • Udaipur’s aspect on the wooded southern slopes of the Aravalli mountains, with its picturesque lakes, majestic palaces, temples and terracotta-hued havelis makes it one of Rajasthan’s most romantic spots.
