If you’ve ever wanted to experience what it’s like to live like royalty, now is your chance, as the royal family of Jaipur has officially put their palace on Airbnb.
The Royal Family of Jaipur lives at the City Palace of Jaipur, which was erected in 1727. Several notable personalities have visited the palace during the previous three centuries, including former President Bill Clinton, Prince Charles, Jackie Kennedy, and others. And now, if you desire, it will also host you.
Outside guests will be able to rent the Gudliya Suite at the City Palace via Airbnb beginning November 23, 2019. As a result, His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh became the first King to use Airbnb to entertain guests.
His Highness told Airbnb, “I am happy that my family and I are cooperating with Airbnb to bring the magnificence of Rajasthan to life for guests from around the world.” “My own Airbnb travels have made me feel quite welcome in various towns and cultures, and I am delighted that this experience of traditional Indian hospitality will be shared with others.”
The suite’s Airbnb website describes the interiors as having “huge and airy reception rooms, crystal chandeliers, gilded wall decorations, elaborate carvings, and in addition to the royal residence, the sprawling palace complex houses a major, globally famous museum.”
The Gudliya Suite, which is housed within one of the royal palace’s exclusive quarters, has its own parlor, bathroom, kitchen, and even an indoor swimming pool.
Guests will have a personal butler to attend to their every need during their stay. Those who want to learn more about the city will be able to hire a guide who can provide personalized city experiences, such as shopping trips.
Guests will also have the opportunity to dine like royalty with Rajasthani meals prepared daily and served on their own private patio with views of the Aravalli hills. Before departing, guests can enjoy an afternoon tea in the palace gardens to take one final taste of royal life.
The best part is that all proceeds will go to the Princess Diya Kumari Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to assisting Rajasthan’s rural women and artisans.
The Gudliya Suite will be available for $8,000 per night for the rest of 2019. However, there will be a limited number of nights accessible for $1,000 per night, with Airbnb contributing the remaining balance to the Foundation.
