The Best Luxury Hotels In Jaipur
Jaipur is royal, regal and majestic.
The capital city of Rajasthan (land of Kings and hospitality) is known for its opulent palaces, towering forest, exhilarating festivals, exciting cultural attractions, grand Havelis (medieval Indian mansions) and shopping attractions.
Its reputation as a chic city of style, elegance and aesthetic grandeur has earned it many monikers, including comparisons to Paris. The “Paris of India” is an integral part of what is known as the Golden Triangle (a trio of 3 popular cities in North India that comprise Agra, Delhi and Jaipur).
No tourist sojourn in North India is complete without a foray into the hip and sexy capital of Rajasthan that exudes charm and romance.
Located only 167 miles from New Delhi, this magnificent metropolis is home to some of India’s most renowned hotels and resorts. Many of these establishments are what’s known as “Heritage Hotels”—erstwhile Palaces of Maharaja now converted into luxury hotels with world-class modern amenities.Plan A Trip
