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.
