Some of you may have said the sweetest words this Valentine's Day and 'I DO' now becomes where will do and how. So here is a suggestion from Ros, who has years of talent and wealth of experience travelling and living in India.
She is proposing the idyllic setting of Rajasthan for your special day. This state in India is undoubtedly the most colourful, spectacular and traditional state and offers a once in a lifetime experience. This is the kind of experience you want for that special day when two people decide to unite their lives forever and it promises to deliver on every level.
Samode Palace was built in the 16th Century as a Rajput Fort but it was converted and renovated in the 19th century to a palace of Rajasthan architectural splendour, with a durbar hall and a hall of mirrors, marble floors, mosaics and paintwork on the walls and ceilings of hunting scenes and other scenes of royal Indian life.
The Palace, as well as two other establishments of the same name, Samode Haveli (which means stately home) and Samode Bagh (which means garden) are now all run by the Heritage Group of Hotels. They offer exquisite and unique experiences for their guests, which are taken to another level by Ros who attends to the individual requests of her group and to the details requested to make this an unforgettable event.
The Palace itself has been used as a film set for Hindi, as well as Western films, and it is not uncommon to find celebrities staying there.
Travelling to Rajasthan for a destination event will be something you, family & friends will be talking about for years to come. You will all be imbued with the visual and physical splendour of what is Rajasthan, and you will enjoy a rich and tasteful Indian Cuisine in a setting which is regal and opulent in every sense.
Ros has chosen the Palace, which is located 40 km from the historic city of Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan as an ideal venue to celebrate weddings. Some of the touches which might appeal include an elephant procession, traditional tikka, garlanding & showering of flower petals, royal banquets set-up on garden terraces or in the Durbar Hall or Hall of Mirrors. For wedding celebrations, the mandap or sacred fire is arranged in a beautiful courtyard.
Ros will coordinate the event & be on hand when you arrive to celebrate your special occasion with family & friends. She takes special pride in giving a personable & customized experience.
