Live like royalty and feel the epic romance of a fairy-tale Rajasthani palace. Nestled picturesquely amid rugged hills, Samode Palace is around an hour’s drive from Jaipur. Dating back over 150 years, it’s a gorgeous example of Rajput-Mughal architecture with twisting staircases, spacious wings and sprawling frescoes. You’ll spend two nights here, wandering along the terraces, exploring the village and gazing over the hills from the rooftop infinity pool.

Day 1 – Arrival in Samode

Today, you’ll travel to the village of Samode, where you’ll stay in a beautiful palace just outside the centre. It’s a glorious example of traditional Rajput-Mughal architecture, filled with bygone romance. Here, you can enjoy two beautiful swimming pools, a sauna and Ayurvedic spa centre, a classic restaurant and an intimate courtyard bar. Needless to say, you’ll be treated like royalty.

We also offer a great alternative for a smaller budget; fully furnished tents set in beautiful gardens with a lovely swimming pool just outside the village.

Day 2 – Free time

After breakfast in one of the shady inner courtyards, you can take a stroll down into the village, which originally sprung up around the palace to serve the resident Maharaja. Once you have explored the village you can head back to Samode Palace, and admire the Rajput-Mughal architecture with twisting staircases, spacious wings and sprawling frescoes.
