In the heart of Jaipur, Hotel Diggi Palace offers a regal setting for luxurious relaxation and celebrations alike. By Rashima Nagpal
Nestled in a byline in the bustling Pink City, not far from landmarks such as Albert Hall Museum, Bapu Bazaar, and Johri Bazaar, Hotel Diggi Palace is a historic structure. Diggi Palace was built in 1860 by the then ruling family of Jaipur. It was later shifted to its current location and converted to a heritage hotel in 1991. Spread over 18 acres, the palace-turned-heritage hotel offers a stay rooted in tradition.
Flanked by elderly mahogony trees, Hotel Diggi Palace offers accommodation in 65 regal units. The rooms are thematically designed: while the Heritage Room teleports you back in time, the Palace Suite has opulent amenities fit for an indulgent holiday. There is also a Courtyard Suite that offers a private terrace. All of them come filled with modern comforts, including a fully stocked minibar.
The heritage hotel serves a traditional dining experience. Be it a private evening for two, lunch with your family, or a gala dinner, the restaurant at Hotel Diggi Palace whips up meals fit for kings and queens. No wonder then that the property is a popular venue for celebrations and events, the world-famous Jaipur Literature Festival being one of them.
