Bal Samand Lake Palace – Jodhpur

Hotel Details

A stone's throw away from the ancient capital of Marwar, Mandore, and only 8 km from the city-center of Jodhpur, Bal Samand is a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The lake was engineered in the 12th Century but the exquisite red sand-stone palace came later; it was built by Maharaja Jaswant Singh I of Jodhpur in the 17th Century, at the very zenith of Rathore Rule under the umbrella of the Mughal Empire. Set in a private estate of over 60 Acres, with sprawling orchards of lime and pomegranate and landscaped gardens criss-crossed by elegant waterways and even a aqueduct, the palace with its lovely promenade on the lake, was always more than just a residence; a pleasure palace in the finest Mughal tradition of the picnic. In more recent times a tradition has developed with the Royal Family celebrating the first rains in Bal Samand; a custom that has led to the palace being referred to as a Monsoon Palace. But today, after the successful completion of an ambitious restoration and modernization program Bal Samand is the palace for all seasons; a world class Heritage Hotel with modern amenities and an Health Spa of renown.

The palace houses ten exclusive suites in all, and suites alone. Each is tastefully and luxuriously appointed in authentic Jodhpur style, with traditional seating, dining alcoves, chaise lounges by the window and enormous jacuzzi baths. The gracious interiors are matched only by the spectacular views of the pristine lake and the splendid gardens. Down in the gardens, surrounded by acres of manicured lawn, are twenty six tastefully designed Garden Rooms with their own Rose Garden, croquet lawn and restaurant.
