From the length to the sights to the luxury hotels, every detail will be designed around you to suit your tastes, schedule and budget.

DAY 1

Centrally located in the heart of New Delhi, this landmark hotel was built in 1934 and designed by Lutyen’s assistant, Bromfield. It evokes the days of the British Raj and exudes style and elegance. Take it easy this afternoon to relax, settle in, and recuperate from your international journey. If you’re arriving early on and would like to begin exploring today, that can be discussed. For a truly exceptional experience, we’d recommend upgrading to the The The Oberoi New Delhi

When arriving in Jaipur later today, you’ll be assisted with checking in to Samode Haveli for a three-night stay. This charming haveli exudes local character and, at over 175 years old, it offers the opportunity to experience one of India’s charming heritage hotels. Samode Haveli is well located too, in the centre of the Pink City. It’s ideal for those who’d like to be in the heart of the action (you may like to read about our own recent stay by clicking here). For a truly royal experience, ask to upgrade to the Taj Rambagh Palace – a former Indian palace. Here you can unleash your inner Maharaja or Maharani at one of the most luxurious hotels in India’s golden triangle.
