Jaipur city is known for its royal heritage and rich culture. Apart from historical places, the hotels and resorts of the city can make you feel like you are a member of royal family. To get the experience of royalty, I decided to stay at the “JW Marriott Jaipur Resort and Spa” with my family. This resort has borrowed the city’s epitomizes royalty, charm, and luxury, and thus give a memorable stay to the guests.
Surrounded by the beauty of Aravali hills, the gem of Jaipur, JW Marriott Jaipur Resort and Spa takes inspiration from traditional Rajasthani palaces and it has been designed to offer a glimpse into the kingly life of the region’s royalty.
When we reached at the resort, we were welcomed by traditional Rajasthani tunes on the tabla and a tikka. As I entered the aesthetically designed lobby, with walls and ceilings adorned with the renowned craftsmanship of local artisans, I was mesmerized by the shining silver furniture, the chandeliers and the Rajasthani decor elements.
After a few hours I checked in and couldn't help myself from falling in love with the temperature-controlled ‘Royal Pool Villa’. The day bed at the pool is quite relaxing as it is surrounded by palm trees.
For my first royal lunch at ‘Sukh Mahal’- the all-day dining restaurant, the chef prepared a splendid four-course menu prepared with a lavish spread of starters of salmon, chicken achari tikka, fish tikka and malai paneer tikka and mains including Kadai chicken and paneer lababdar. The highlight of my meal was the dessert- green apple mouse with macarons.
Later in the evening, I had time to relax with my family by taking a dip in my private plunge pool. The lukewarm water cooled my body and opened all the pores. After feeling refreshed, I headed for dinner at the fine-dining restaurant, ‘Mohan Mahal’ which is designed with tikri (patterned mirror work). We tasted the lavish traditional Rajasthani thali which included lal maas, dal bati churma, and gatte ki sabzi.
The next morning was a fine buffet breakfast. Apart from the usual English breakfast, the chef brought his signature dish, laal maas omelette, a twist to the traditional dish. I would recommend that to everyone.
I then experienced ultimate rejuvenating 90 minutes of spa including 60 minutes of body massage and 30 minutes of body scrub. It was followed by a body scrub that not only cleansed and detoxified my skin but also hydrated and exfoliated it.
