World Travel Magazine - - Asia -

Stylist’s haven in the Pink City • Built as a love let­ter from a hus­band to his wife, the daugh­ter of the Ma­ha­rana of Me­war, two hun­dred and fifty years ago the pri­vate palace re­mains a ro­man­tic gar­den re­treat re­call­ing the re­gion’s re­gal past with suites named af­ter fa­mous guests, in­clud­ing the Princess of Wales suite and Kennedy Suite. In a re­gion known for ex­trav­a­gance, Su­jan Ra­jma­hal Palace in­cludes 14 unique lav­ishly dec­o­rated suites with var­i­ous themes and artis­tic el­e­ments like the buta, or pais­ley, of Per­sian ori­gin, cy­press, and geo­met­ric in­spi­ra­tions from lo­cal stone carv­ing mo­tifs on forts and palaces. Ex­quis­ite tea ser­vice on man­i­cured lawns and open ter­races evoke the spirit of the raj when ev­ery­thing slows down for the quin­tes­sen­tial af­ter­noon tea. Jaipur, In­dia
