On the outskirt of Shekhawati and deep in the desert, Samode is a
small village that lies 42 kms from Jaipur. This is where you will
find Samode Palace, nestled at the base of one of the world's oldest
mountain ranges, the Aravalli Range. One of India’s most charming and
romantic hotels, Samode Palace is a perfect royal wedding destination.
With exquisite frescoes and mirror-work throughout the property, the
rooms and suites are stunning. A large, sprawling palace with endless
different wings, terraces, courtyards and levels, the dreamy rooms are
scattered all over the building and each is gorgeous, colourful and
unique. It has been a favorite of high profile guests like the King
of Jordan, Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis and Carolina Herrera among
The Darbar Hall, with its frescoes, serves as a perfect canvas for
glitzy and glamorous evenings. Samode Bagh, with its Mughal Gardens,
the endless fountains and gorgeous lighting is a perfect outdoor
setting for various wedding functions.
