Sujan Rajmahal Palace, Jaipur

For travelers to the Rajasthan region of India, there’s a new luxury address to note. The Suján Rajmahal Palace-- originally built in 1729 by the Maharaja of Jaipur—has been restored by the top-notch Suján hotel group, and will reopen in November 2014. It has been a hotel since the 1980s, but it fell on hard times—until Suján was recruited by the royal family to restore the original features (marble staircase, mirrored ceilings, chandeliers), while bringing a hefty dose of contemporary glamour.

Lead designer Adil Ahmad took inspiration from the City Palace, the current royal residence, with its traditional royal motifs and classical architecture. There will be 20 rooms and suites, two restaurants, a bar, a swimming pool, and a Suján Spa. Note that when Relais & Châteaux launched in India for the first time in 2008, it was a Suján property, Sher Bagh Ranthambhore, that became a member of the collection. Followed by The Serai, Jaisalmer in 2009. For more information, visit http://sujanluxury.com
