Samode Palace - The winner of the award for the best Heritage hotel in the country, for 5 consecutive years, the Palace has been meticulously restored offering a retreat into an aesthetically beautiful environment where visitors can enjoy India's natural beauty and rich history. It is full of architectural delights with stately corridors, frescoed walls ethereal audience halls, harmoniously reflecting the skill of master craftsmen. An evening at Samode is a magical experience of former princely India and part of an ongoing tradition.
Samode - the small principality of Samode lies 50 kms northwest of the city of Jaipur and dates back to the 16th Century. The 7th ruler of Amber, the ancient capital of the Rajput Empire, had twelve sons, one of whom was awarded the feudatory seat of Samode for his gallantry and outstanding service.
Samode Bagh or walled garden in a sprawling 10 acres was an oasis set among the dry rugged expanses of an ochre desert. Today it rediscovers some of its lost splendour of a garden paradise. Shrubs of Lemon, Orange, Hibiscus, Pomegranate, Jasmine Lantana and a beautiful array of flowering & shade trees have been meticulously planted. Surviving the years, a majestic central pavilion containing a "bath" stands silently surrounded by "baradaris' or small open pavilions, sparkling fountains & mughal water channels.
