Samode is located in the Indian state of Rajasthan, about 45 minutes by car from Jaipur. Away from tourist streams you will experience the authentic, rural Rajasthan. After passing through the village, you will pass a huge gate through which an elephant could easily march. Then you have a clear view of the fairytale Samode Palace, surrounded by mountain ranges.
The 500-year-old Maharaja Palace is considered an outstanding example of Indo-Saracen architecture and has been converted into a luxurious palace hotel with great attention to detail. Its elegant furnishings give each room a unique character and the 43 rooms and suites with en-suite bathrooms with bathtubs and separate showers give an entirely new meaning to the expression "comfort".
In two restaurants you can enjoy a wide selection of regional specialities and international delicacies. Morning breakfast is served in the courtyard or on the private terrace, accompanied by birdsong under the shade of the trees. The evening cocktail or an exquisite wine from the hotel's own wine cellar is best enjoyed on the terrace garden under the starlight of crystal-clear nights. Explore the historic rooms, immerse yourself in the marble pool, relax on the sun deck of the infinity pool or indulge in the spa - there's always something to do at Samode Palace.
But there's also plenty to see in Samode itself. Far away from the hustle and bustle of northern Indian cities, you can explore village life on foot, by jeep or on a camel safari. Look over the shoulder of the craftsmen or enjoy a typical lunch on a local farm. For the more active, climb the impressive Sheogarh Fort above the palace. A spectacular view of the palace and the surrounding mountains awaits you here - an experience not to be missed!
