Tiger Safari Resort
This is one of the best options for those on a budget, where the helpful management is adept at organising safaris, wake-up calls and early breakfasts before the morning safari...
Taj Lake Palace
The icon of Udaipur, this romantic white-marble palace seemingly floating on the lake is extraordinary, with open-air courtyards, lotus ponds and a small, mango-tree-shaded pool. Rooms are hung with breezy silks and filled with carved furniture...
Hotel Pearl Palace
The delightful Pearl Palace continues to raise the bar for budget digs. There’s quite a range of rooms to choose from – small, large, shared bath, private bath, some balconied, some with AC or fan cooled, and all are spotless...
The Raj Palace
This stunning palace is almost over-the-top-end, with an antique-crockery museum, an enormous crystal chandelier and a stellar list of royal guests...
This quiet and comfortable option has no-fuss, spacious rooms (there are three grades) and an extensive lawn where you find some quiet respite from the hassles of sightseeing...
Run by an artist family, Krishna Niwas has smart, clean, all AC rooms; those with views are smaller, and some come with balconies. There are splendid views from the rooftop, and a decent restaurant...
Vivanta By Taj Hari Mahal
This modern Taj Group hotel uses traditional flourishes to good effect. It is centred on a courtyard featuring a huge swimming pool, and the luxurious rooms can be had for hefty discounts when occupancy is low.
Hotel Hilltop Palace
It may not be oozing with an intimate charm. But with its well-appointed rooms and lofty perch on a hilltop, this modern hotel offers comfort from on high, affording fab views all around...

Hotel Nachana Haveli
This 280-year-old royal haveli, set around three courtyards – one with a tinkling fountain – is a fascinating hotel. The raw sandstone rooms have arched stone ceilings and the ambience of a medieval castle...
Jai Mahal Palace
Once the residence of Jaipur’s prime minister, this gracious 18th-century building is now a grand, luxurious hotel run by the Taj Group. It is set in 7 hectares of manicured Mughal gardens, which most of the swish, comfortable rooms overlook.
Jaisamand Island Resort
Jaisamand Island Resort is a modern stylish hotel in a wonderful, secluded location 20 minutes by boat across the lake. The pool has a brilliant setting but isn’t always full and there can be an air of neglect. Discounts are often available.
This splendid palace was once the Jaipur pad of Maharaja Man Singh II and, until recently, his glamorous wife Gayatri Devi. Veiled in 19 hectares of gardens, the hotel has fantastic views across the immaculate lawns...
Alsisar Haveli Heritage Hotel
Another genuine heritage hotel that has emerged from a gracious 19th-century mansion. Alsisar Haveli is set in beautiful green gardens, and boasts a lovely swimming pool and a wonderful dining room...
This is one of Udaipur’s few hotels that are genuine old havelis (as opposed to old havelis that have been gutted and rebuilt, or new buildings made to look like old havelis, or places that simply stick ‘Haveli’ on the end of their name)...
A charming hotel surrounding a verdant oasis shaded by majestic neem trees. As well as being the most peaceful place in Jodhpur it is also excellent value. There’s a superb pool and a good restaurant (veg/non-veg thali ₹175/200; 7-10am & 8-10pm)...
The Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace
Traditional Rajput decor and costuming combine with modern comforts to ensure a graceful getaway here. Hunting relics (à la antelope heads) in hallways add a head-turning, though perhaps not tasteful to all, touch...
Hotel Raj Vilas Palace
This former residence of the governor general is the latest luxury addition to Bikaner. It has friendly staff, and a real red-carpet feel. The rooms are centrally air-conditioned, though most are fairly businesslike...
The Royale Jaisalmer
South of the fort gate, this bright hotel is a good choice for its spacious, colourful, traditionally decorated rooms, multicuisine rooftop restaurant and neat pool in the rear courtyard.

A crisp hotel from the Carlson Group featuring 100 streamlined, ultramodern rooms, an impressive spa and health club, and an excellent 24-hour restaurant.
