India is sometimes referred to as the ‘Land of the Maharajas’. The word inspires images of what is at once fantasy and incredible reality – kings and princes, magnificent palaces, lavish lifestyles, luxury cars, custom made jewellery, hunting and polo. A clutch of India’s renowned palaces have been converted into breath taking guest residences, recalling the luxury and atmosphere of another era, today.
This tour is centered around four palace hotels – Nadesar Palace in Varanasi, Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur and Lake Palace in Udaipur – each of them utterly unique and integral to their locations. Portraits of history, royalty and culture emerge larger than life.
