Exclusive and discreet, Samode Palace has been host to celebrities, royalty, artists, and the discriminating traveller.

A splendid example of regal Indo-Saracenic architecture, the Palace combines the best of Indian and Mughal styles. The 475-year-old palace is a celebration of the senses, underlined at all times by contemporary luxury and the signature service of Samode hotels - a magical hospitality and rare courtesy.

Guests are known to want to lose themselves in the maze of bougainvillea covered courtyards, connected by quaint narrow staircases and chance upon lounges adorned by charming arches, stunning mirror work, exquisitely painted walls and ceilings. Royal suites and rooms surround the courtyards, each with their unique personality and décor.

Under the impressive Sheogarh Fort, the private balconies, restaurants and dining areas, and the intriguing pools - open out to the sky on clear days and starlit nights. You may come to Samode Palace to soak in the glorious luxury, celebrate an occasion, host a spectacular wedding, but mostly, you may just want to be, for being at Samode transforms you.

Awaken to the quiet dawn, or have a cocktail on the terrace garden to the accompaniment of folk musicians. Run your fingers across the intricate story of an ancient mural on an uneven wall. Emerge from a gentle healing massage at the spa, or perhaps just sink into the lavish bed in your room. Samode Palace works its magic on you.

The 4 royal suites, 20 deluxe suites and 19 spacious rooms of Samode Palace redefine the word comfort. Each room, with its own unique personality, is elegantly and luxuriously furnished. Four poster-beds draped with sheer, delicate fabric and exquisitely carved couches invite you to relax completely. The flowers follow you everywhere - from the courtyards and the painted lounges to the charming prints on the flowing curtains and linen that softly brush against you, the rose petals in your bathtub and your Jacuzzi to the beautiful intricate patterns on the rich carpets beneath your feet.

Colour and spirit mingle with the sparkling of white linen and marble and with the warm wood of exquisite furniture. Old photographs of the family, weddings, hunting expeditions, and regal gatherings hang easily on the walls beside the large TV screen. Samode is a world that blends modern luxury effortlessly with that of the past - air-conditioning and heating, perfectly stocked mini-bars, tea and coffee counters, satellite television, house movies - this is the best of all worlds.

Each royal suite is a luxe apartment with its own private courtyard looking out to the mountains, and a Jacuzzi. All rooms have lavish en-suite bathrooms that are classic and elegant - with spacious wardrobes, sink-and-laze tubs, gracious dressing tables - all deserving of the care you give yourself.

Do ask for your preference, for at Samode it is our privilege to serve you. A room on the lowest level will be best if you find it difficult to climb the stairs, a twin bed room is excellent if you aren't sharing the bed with your companion, romance deserves a special suite. Honeymooners find the dream-like setting and the invisible, discreet service enchanting.

The buffet breakfast is served in the courtyard under the shade of trees and the chirping of birds, with the excellent staff who cheerfully suggest what you may enjoy. The two restaurants offer a choice of royal Rajasthani delicacies or scrumptious Asian and European fare. Stunning murals vie with the food in stealing your attention. Evening cocktails by the poolside or a romantic candle-lit dinner at the terrace garden catch the starlight of the clear Rajasthani nights. Of course you may prefer in-room dining if you can't tear yourself away from the magnificence of your residence.

The Palace has an extensive wine cellar, with a handpicked and expert choice of both International and Indian varietals.
Swim in a clear marble and mosaic swimming pool or rejuvenate with a dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi. Laze by the rooftop Infinity pool and catch a breathtaking sunset with the vistas of the Aravalli Range and a brilliantly lit fort as a backdrop.

The Spa offers luxurious massage therapies by trained professionals in charming rooms that invite you to forget the world and give in to the power of indulgence. Health facilities include a fully-equipped fitness centre, sauna and steam room.

Take a jeep safari around the villages and fields, visiting local shrines, bazaars - drive through for a coffee or a meal to the royal gardens of Samode Bagh. For the more adventurous visitor, horse and camel safaris are available and special visits to the sand dunes can be arranged. If you like you could walk out of the gates of the Palace and through the cobbled lanes of Samode village and market stopping by the little shops of the bangle maker, the cloth merchant, the gemstone expert.
The Palace is ideal for grand celebrations and seems custom-ordered for Weddings. Traditionally an Indian wedding has two important components - a horse for the groom and a doli in which the bride is carried away. As you walk into Samode Palace you are greeted by the idea of an imminent wedding - the doorway has a wooden horse to one side and a doli on the other!

A marriage at Samode is an experience that will last a lifetime. The stately regalia include an elephant procession, traditional tikka, garlanding and a shower of flower petals. The mandap or sacred fire is arranged in the beautiful courtyard, and a royal banquet set-up in the opulent Darbar hall with Sheesh Mahal (or Palace of Mirrors).

Fireworks light up the sky, lamp lights twinkle brighter than the stars. The food is a delicacy, the service is flawless and the celebration is unforgettable - tailor-made to your fantasy.

This is romance re-defined. And newly-weds stay on for a spectacular honeymoon in a setting that draws them in an intimately romantic sweep through the charming entrances, into colourful courtyards and verandahs filled with a warm familiarity, secluded gardens and plush princely apartments.

Guests come back to celebrate special anniversaries and occasions. Samode seems to have a lien on celebrations.

Private, elite and stylish, the Palace has hosted business owners and chief executive officers from all over the world. The setting, the facilities and the service come together to create personalized meets, punctuated by elegant banquets, theme dinners and galas (at the Palace or the sand dunes that rise to meet the lilting tunes of the local musicians), and local activities including elephant polo and camel safaris.

Incentives to the Palace are immensely rewarding. The extreme hospitality, courtesy and personalized care merge with the location and activities to providing an aspirational and motivating experience.


They hold pride of place in India's heritage and that of Rajasthan. The present owners, Rawal Raghavendra Singh and Yadavendra Singh, descendants of the royal family of Samode, committed to restore the three properties - the Palace, the Bagh (the royal gardens), and the Haveli (the royal residence) - to their splendid and original glory and offer the experience to discerning travellers from across the world. The three spectacular hotels, personally attended to by the owners, are also embedded with world-class contemporary luxury, planned for with great care during the restoration. A wealthy history blends seamlessly with the comforts of the present.

Samode hotels have preserved the fusion of historical influences in the décor and design. The Indo-Saracenic architecture, opulent Mughal interiors, European furniture, and Rajasthani fabrics and design, blend together to showcase the history that lies behind Samode. The charming influences of the royal Nepalese family, into which the Rawals married quite frequently, has been retained in the ornate mirrors, lounges and photographs.

In a commitment to preserve the way of life of the people of Samode, inherited local knowledge, local skills, and wherever
possible, local material have been used extensively during the restoration process.
