Diggi Palace is an Indian royal palace located in Jaipur, Rajasthan. It was converted into a heritage hotel in 1990, but a part is still occupied by the royal family, which also runs the hotel. What best describes this palace is, in my opinion, the color; Fresco paintings on the shimmering walls of the doors and patios, all bursting with color. The set is actually very cheerful, and instantly puts you in a good mood! No pretension, but the discreet charm of family properties.
Conveniently located next to the Albert Hall Museum, halfway between the Rambagh Palace and the City Palace and Hawa Mahal.
Built in 1860 by Shri Thakur Saheb Pratap Singh Ji Diggi, a member of the ruling family of the principality of Diggi located 75km from Jaipur. On a plot of more than 18 acres, the mansion includes banquet halls, different wings (or havelis), and a lush garden.
With 75 rooms, the Diggi Palace Hotel offers a range of accommodation for the discerning traveler, from simple or doubles rooms to the Palace suites and Courtyard suites.
Baradari Restaurant, Indian gourmet cuisine to taste the traditional family recipes, dinner with the family on demand
Safaris on horseback, camel, jeep or bike organized in the surrounding countryside. Yoga, gym, puppet shows, cooking classes and visit of the organic farm which provides all the ingredients and will be the occasion of a rural excursion with an expert guide in botanic (reservation advised)
