A spectacular hotel, set beautifully amidst a lake, the Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur looks like a dream and offers nothing less than fulfilling your ultimate wedding fantasies. Royal butlers, critically acclaimed chefs and the hospitality backed by the name of the prestigious Taj brand is just the beginning of what the palace hotel has to offer to the couple to wed.
Udaipur—the city of lakes and palaces—is the idyllic wedding destination. The city echoes eons of tradition and amorous love. No other place reflects this more than the beautiful Devi Garh located deep in the Aravalli Hills. This 18th century palace hotel is known for hosting some of India’s most gorgeous weddings. Devi offers multiple spectacular ‘I do’ locations from the Janana courtyard, where bonfire will keep guests toasty in the crispy evening air, to the Restaurant Deck, ideal for a sunset wedding with its panoramic view of the Aravalli Hills.
The Leela Palace hotel in Udaipur is another divine location for traditional nuptials. Perched on the Pichola Lake, the Leela Palace, basks in all its romantic glory. For those lovers about to engage in matrimonial bliss, the hotel offers a fabulous wedding package, which promises to make their dream wedding come true. The Regal Wedding Package takes care of all the wedding events—from the sangeet to the wedding rites—so all the couple has to do is to look forward to the beginning of their future together.
Twenty minutes outside of Udaipur you will find a heritage hotel that has been transplanted pillar-by-pillar, stone-by-stone from its former resting place, a practice perfected by followers of the Heritage Renaissance School. Perched atop a hill, this 52-room, 14-suite property has commanding views of the nearby Aravali hills and the City of Lakes, which are best taken in at sunset on the terrace over high tea.
Jodhpur—also known as the blue city—is another Rajasthani city run-over with opulent palaces and quaint forts. Notorious for being one of the largest private residences in the world, the Umaid Bhavan Palace took 15 years to construct. This 347-room, Art Deco-style yellow stone palace still houses the Jodhpur royal family. And with a banquet capacity of 3,000 guests, it’s no wonder this grand monument was the chosen locale for the Liz Hurley-Arun Nayar wedding.
Rajasthan is always equated with grand Indian weddings attended by a large number of people, celebrating the couple’s union. The Mihirgarh fort, located a little outside Jodhpur is an exception. The hotel is remotely located in the barren lands near Jodhpur, a little oasis of opulence and grandeur, perfect venue for an intimate wedding. The boutique hotel has only nine luxurious suites, so be prepared to invite few, those who are near and dear.
One of the most contemporary hotels in the state, RAAS is an exemplary example of the peaceful cohabitation of old and new. Housed in three 18th century havelis with four contemporary blocks constructed using local materials, it successfully blurs the lines between ancient and modern. The view is not that of sweeping vistas but rather of the majestic Mehrangahr Fort, clad in its armor of pink sandstone.
Jaipur—the capital of Rajasthan—is an ethereally romantic destination (replete with grandeur and beauty) for the happy couples to tie the knot in. Jaipur’s Jai Mahal Palace is a gorgeous heritage palace hotel dating back to 1745 with 18 acres of lush Mughal gardens ideal for an outdoor wedding reception. This plush property offers couples a unique wedding package which includes everything from organising a gala baraat.
Originally the residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur, the Rambagh Palace, is a luxury palace hotel that provides the quintessential royal backdrop for couples who always dreamt of their wedding as a regal and opulent affair. The hotel strives to make every wish and desire come true in order to celebrate the union of the couple in a grand fashion. Special menus, wedding planners, traditional wedding processions with elephants—Rambagh offers it all.
