Located just north of Jaipur, The Leela Palace Jaipur—a jewel of The Leela group—is a stunning luxury hotel nestled against the majestic backdrop of the Aravalli mountain range, boasting over eight acres of lush landscaped gardens and an enviable setting near key heritage and tourism sites within the ancient city. Though close to the city of Jaipur, The Leela Palace Jaipur’s bucolic countryside location adds to its regal and palatial charm, offering a sense of privacy and separation from the city proper, while being just minutes from the nearby international airport.

Guests of The Leela Palace Jaipur will experience the history, culture and incredible energy of the “Pink City” from the über-luxurious comfort of this modern palace. The majestic splendor of Rajputana heritage is on full display at this landmark structure, which is an elegant reflection of modern palatial grandeur, using traditional thikri craft, inlaid mirrors, Shekhawati paintings and silver foiled domes throughout its stunning decor. The sprawling, sumptuous grounds of the property host villas, courtyards, fountains, terraces, and a stunning sun-drenched pool surrounded by silver-domed pavilions, perfect for lounging in the late-afternoon sun’s golden glow.

Inspired by the luxury and opulence of Jaipur’s regal past yet staunchly modern in its execution, The Leela Palace Jaipur has 200 lavishly appointed rooms, suites and villas that offer personalized services delivered with a traditional finesse that embodies the spirit of both the local culture and the signature Leela brand. All accommodations offer pillow menus, bespoke bath products, refined-but-traditional décor, and large windows for ample natural light and range from a standard-yet-lovely Palace Room all the way to the awe-inducing, incomparable Maharaja Suite.

There is also a private Jacuzzi pool, a living room adorned with rich Venetian mirrors, and well-appointed bathrooms with Tishya by The Leela bath amenities. Private elevator access, a walk-in closet and personal butler services add to the suite’s incredible opulence.
