About a month ago, being frustrated with a heavy workload (some of it self-imposed) I desperately needed and wanted a luxury vacation. I harboured the dream of one that was wouldn't cost me a rupee. Funnily enough, elements of the universe conspired to make my dream a reality and I was offered a trip to the Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel, Jodhpur. Reiterating my now stronger belief in 'The Secret', I enjoyed the ultimate luxury experience. Here are some images from my stay:
It all started with a pick-up in a vintage car from the airport. My ride was a vintage Chevrolet (that's all I could get from the chauffeur!)
My grand room, replete with a walk-in-wardrobe, 2 mini balconies with patio furniture and a massive bathroom furnished with a bathtub and a separate bathing area!
The majestic lobby area in all its glory.
The ceiling of the lobby.
The palace hotel looked upon by the moon.
Paintings of kings and queens adorn many of the walls at the hotel.
