After five extremely successful seasons, SUJÁN announces that Rajmahal Palace, Jaipur will cease to be a part of its collection of experiential hotels in Rajasthan.
In these five years under SUJÁN’s management, the Palace took its place among the very best of its genre, globally. Like the rest of our collection in Rajasthan – SUJÁN Sher Bagh, Ranthambhore, SUJÁN The Serai, Jaisalmer and SUJÁN JAWAI, Jawai Bandh – SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace too received overwhelming similar global acclaim in the media, featuring in every respectable travel and luxury magazine, both in print and online. The Palace-hotel won numerous awards, and was listed among the best hotels in the world, frequently among the top 10, and featured in the extremely coveted Condé Nast Traveller Gold List multiple times, including in 2020. The Palace also commanded some of the highest achieved rates in India and was a huge success right from its maiden season. It was admitted as a member of Relais & Chateaux, the world’s most prestigious association of hotels and restaurants; leaders in the art of refined hospitality, gastronomy and art de vivre, in its first season – a clear mark of excellence. Widely known to be one of the most beautiful hotels in the world, it adorns the cover of ‘Glorious Hotels in India’ and was featured in House & Garden’s Hotels by Design, in Architectural Digest and many more. In keeping with tradition, the Palace continued to play host to international royalty, heads of state and countless celebrities – be them actors, authors, designers, statesmen and captains of industry. The legendary parties too continued – from the annual Penguin-Random House celebration during the Jaipur Literature Festival to British Polo Day – and countless others.
While acknowledging the SUJAN team, in their astounding work, Princess Diya Kumari stated, “Built in 1729, The Rajmahal Palace has been a significant part of the history of the Jaipur Royal Family. We are incredibly grateful to SUJÁN to have been the custodians of this treasured asset since its extensive renovation five years ago. While we are sad to see them go, we look forward to continuing the legacy of The Rajmahal through its next chapter.”
Bidding farewell to the Palace, Jaisal Singh, Founder & Chairman, SUJÁN, extended his gratitude to all the guests and patrons who were part of this wonderful journey and experienced the SUJÁN life in Jaipur. He further expressed, “After an exhilarating tenure, on behalf of everyone at SUJÁN, I would like to thank the Royal Family of Jaipur for entrusting us with re-opening and managing one of their most treasured and beautiful palaces that dates back to 1729. We wish the family and the Palace all success in the years to come.”
