Fairmont's First Indian Hotel Opens in Jaipur
Fairmont launched its first Indian property in Jaipur last week. A vast 255-room hotel in Rajasthan's Pink City (called so after it was painted pink in honour of the Prince of Whales' visit in 1876), the hotel's overarching design makes it resemble a fort.
The Fairmont Jaipur draws on a cocktail of Indian culture when it comes to design influence - while the outsides are Mughal-inspired, the insides are a 'blend of the traditional Rajasthani décor and modern luxury.' Rooms feature timber doors, private foyers, vaulted ceilings, and modern conveniences as large soaker tubs.
What to Expect
Currently, the hotel has an all-day dining restaurant, Zoya, which serves Rajasthani fare; the lobby lounge, Anjum, which offers afternoon teas with a local twist; a regency-style library bar, Aza; and a classic smoking room, called the Cigar Diwan.
The hotel also has a resident falconer willing to teach the art of falconry; otherwise elephant and hot air balloon rides are also available. The Willow Stream Spa, however, will debut later.
The Fairmont members' area, the Fairmont Gold Floor - its exclusive hotel within a hotel - is also a big feature at the hotel. It comes with its own lobby and Gold Lounge as well as a butler service.
