The Oberoi Rajvilas

Why We Love This Hotel :

History: Built in a traditional Rajasthani fort style, this hotel is home to a 280-year-old Shiva temple and a Rajasthani haveli (mansion), which have been carefully restored.

Service: Built to revive the feeling of traditional Rajasthani royalty, guests are treated in a princely manner at this hotel, with a 24-hour butler for every room.

Location: Only a short distance from Jaipur, this hotel is the ideal base for exploring the vibrant, exciting, and exotic city.

The Oberoi Rajvilas provides guests with facilities that blend effortlessly with the palatial comforts contained throughout the hotel. A relaxing spa, a high-tech gym, and a huge pool in a stunning setting, are all activities guests can enjoy.


The ample 60 foot pool, surrounded by beautiful gardens, is an ideal place to while away an afternoon. The water is heated in the winter for guests optimal comfort.


Guests can enjoy a full day of pampering at the Oberoi Rajvilas spa, with trained spa practitioners who combine Eastern traditions with Western techniques to create the ultimate in holistic therapy and relaxation.  Guests who want to stay in shape can make full use of the state-of-the-art fitness facilities offered by the hotel.


Yoga sessions take place in the shade of the ancient Shiva temple, where guests can learn from a trained yoga practitioner.


Dining at the Oberoi Rajvilas will transport guests on a journey through royal cuisine and rich Indian flavours, with the exciting addition of evening entertainment by traditional Indian performers.


Dine on the finest of Indian cuisine at the hotel’s newest restaurant, in a room that conjures a feeling of Indian royalty. With four-course meals served on silver platters, diners may indeed feel like royalty, while they taste the rich curries and fresh breads. Display kitchens with chefs demonstrating traditional Tandoori cooking is a particular guest favorite.

Rajwada Library Bar

The casual Library Bar is the ideal spot to relax after a long day of sightseeing, with a menu offering a fantastic selection of fine wines and spirits to tempt the palate. Of course, since libraries are meant for learning, a historian session is also available.

Surya Mahal & Courtyard

Guests may enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Surya Mahal Courtyard. The menu features both fine international and fine Indian cuisine, complimented by a selection of fine wines. In the evenings, the courtyard is transformed into a romantic scene, where guests are entertained under starlight by traditional performances of Indian music and dance, just as the Rajput princes were.
