IHCL announced the opening of Sawai Man Mahal in Jaipur. The heritage palace set in the environs of the majestic Rambagh Palace, pays tribute to Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, the last ruler of the princely state of Jaipur.

Sawai Man Mahal is inspired by the rich Rajputana heritage. Each of the aesthetically designed and spacious 51 rooms open into private courtyards laced with greenery. The palace’s fa├žade is an ode to Amber Fort and also showcases the 187-year-old Golden Gate, Rambagh Palace’s original gold gilded entrance in the lobby. Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II served as the first ambassador to Spain and the influence is reflected in La Mesa; the Spanish themed all-day-diner and La Terraza an elegant al-fresco dining choice. Guests can enjoy prized malts at 1835; the library-themed cocktail lounge with books dating back to more than 200 years for company.

The most notable element of the palace is Maharani Mahal, the gold-accented ballroom overlooking the expansive Maharani Bagh, affording guests a rare opportunity to celebrate events in the backdrop of the regal splendour of a bygone era. Silver themed Chandra Mahal and the lavish Sabha Niwas are perfect for intimate gatherings. The palace offers outdoor pool, fitness centre and a Jiva Spa for rejuvenation.
