From hand-painted artworks on walls to silver-foiled domes that shine under the Rajasthani sun, the hotel brings alive ancient traditions
February 22, 2021: The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts have unveiled The Leela Palace Jaipur, which has gone through extensive refurbishment and enhancements, as it opens to travelers looking for a post-pandemic vacation.
Located amidst tranquil environs near the Amber fort on Delhi-Jaipur highway, The Leela Palace Jaipur is set against the majestic backdrop of the Aravalli range, on over 8 acres of landscaped gardens. Within easy driving distance from Delhi, the hotel is within easy distance from historical places of interest, buzzing bazaars brimming with textiles, art and handicrafts and the famous silver and gemstone markets.
Inspired by the royal Rajputana heritage, the design of the hotel pays homage to the intricacies of regional craftsmanship. From the 400-year-old heritage craft of Thikri, the art of inlaying mirrors, to the traditional Shekhawati paintings that adorn the walls to the glimmering domes that have been carefully crafted with silver foiling, every detail evokes a sense of place and majestic splendour.
The Leela Palace Jaipur houses 200 lavishly appointed rooms suites and villas. Villas with private plunge pools are the largest in the city, blending exquisite details with contemporary charm. Opulent décor and plush interiors are accentuated by bespoke elements such as delicately designed chandeliers. The Villas offer a true Leela Palace experience defined by the signature intuitive Palace Service, thoughtfully curated and delivered by the Palace Butlers.
The rich culinary repertoire at The Leela Palace Jaipur seduces the palate with everything from the royal kitchens to traditional Indian to contemporary fine dining. Sukh Mahal offers delectable flavours, both Indian and international, thoughtfully crafted with the fresh ingredients. Mohan Mahal, the speciality Indian restaurant inspired by the famed Sheesh Mahal at Amber Fort, offers a magical dining experience. Lit only by candles, the iridescent ambience of the restaurant lends a unique charm as guests relish the most authentic Awadhi and Rajasthani cuisine. Hawa Mahal satiates the longing for an exclusive rooftop dining experience where sights and tastes are both tended to with charming warmth. The hotel will also open a contemporary Italian restaurant soon.
The Leela Palace Jaipur boasts of over 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space including a stunning pillarless Grand Ballroom and verdant lawns, providing a superlative venue for celebrations, memorable weddings and bespoke events. The serene setting of The Leela Palace Jaipur makes it a beautiful vacation destination for families.
