Occasionally you walk into a hotel as it instantly takes your breath away – the Pearl Palace Heritage is exactly one of those places.
With each room thoughtfully themed and offering a different experience to the next, there’s no such thing as a ‘dud’ room at this hotel.
Our suite, the Viceroy was modelled on British architecture, a throwback to this point in time. Many of the buildings around Jaipur reflect the period during which India was under the English monarchy and the same inspiration was used in the design of this particular room. The fixtures and fittings are, of course, new, but the room itself had a beautiful old-world charm about it.
Not only were the rooms gorgeous, exceeding all our expectations, but the service we received was out of this world on every occasion. Never have I stayed in accommodation where the service was so friendly and personal every step of the way.
Upon checking in, we were offered drinks – I asked if they had any Coke Zero (which they didn’t) and presumed that was the end of it. Little to my knowledge, the fabulous Pearl Palace team were hard at work behind the scenes and thirty minutes later, two ice-cold cans of fizzy were delivered to our room, at no charge! This is exactly the kind of service that is typical of the Pearl Palace Heritage – nothing is too much trouble and the team frequently go above and beyond with the most genuine hospitality that we have ever experienced.
Everything about this hotel was spectacular – the breakfast was generous and oh-so-tasty, the service was outstanding, the beds comfy, the shower hot and high-pressured and best of all, the price was right.
For approximately what we payed to stay elsewhere in India, we were treated like royalty whilst staying here. A gorgeous suite, like the Viceroy in which we stayed, is normally 2990 Indian rupees a night (+ 9% tax) – that’s less than USD50 a night for a room that sleeps four people in absolute luxury. Included in this price is an airport/train station pick-up and of course, wifi and any additional offerings are charged at a fair and reasonable price.
We spent two fabulous nights at the Pearl Palace Heritage whilst in Jaipur and wish we could have stayed on much longer. It was one of the real highlights of our visit to the Golden Triangle and an absolute must-visit for anyone visiting this part of the world!
