Most Romantic Cities and Luxury Hotels in Rajasthan

Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway or your dream honeymoon, Rajasthan is one of our top travel destinations for those looking for a unique luxury holiday that combines relaxation and adventure.

From majestic forts and magical palaces to beautiful lakes and golden sand dunes, every city has its own defining character steeped in history and tradition. If you can, we’d recommend visiting over Diwali (October / November) or Holi Festival (March) when Rajasthan comes alive in a kaleidoscope of colour, music and dancing, even more so than usual!

Udaipur - the City of Lakes

Udaipur, The City of Lakes, is arguably the most romantic and relaxing city in India. Often termed ‘Venice of the East’, this beautiful city is dotted with spectacular lakes and palaces, making it the perfect spot to spend a little time relaxing and meandering through the city’s pebbled streets and beautiful walkways. The city overlooks Lake Pichola, home to the world-famous Lake Palace which appears to float on water. For the ultimate romantic evening, enjoy a boat ride on the lake before a private dinner on a pontoon watching the sunset over the surrounding Aravali Hills.

Jaipur - the Pink City

Jaipur, or The Pink City due to its rose pink buildings, is the capital and gateway to Rajasthan, and for good reason. Home to the stunning Hawa Mahal Palace, this vibrant city offers everything from magnificent desert views and grand havelis to luxury hotels, fabulous restaurants and shopping in some of the country’s most colourful bazaars.

Our favourite hotels:

Rambagh Palace

RAAS Rajmahal Palace


Home to the only Brahma Temple in India, Pushkar is a beautiful, laid-back city situated around a sacred lake that is one of the five holiest pilgrimages for Hindus. Around the lake, you’ll find 52 bathing ghats for Hindus to bathe in the sacred waters and every evening, an hour before sunset, everybody gathers around the lake to watch the incredible sunset with music and chanting. As well as being a great place for restaurants and shopping, Pushkar is world famous for its spectacular Camel Fair which takes place in the Hindu month of Kartika (October/November).

We recommend staying in The Orchard Pushkar.

Jodhpur - the Blue City

Also known as the ‘Blue City’ for the cooling indigo-painted walls of the old town, Jodhpur is the second-largest city in Rajasthan and is home to beautiful palaces, majestic forts, scenic gardens and fascinating museums. The famous Mehrangarh Fort is definitely worth a visit, not only for its historical significance but also for the spectacular panoramic views over the city, Takhat Sagar Lake and surrounding Thar Desert.

We love:

Umaid Bhawan Palace

RAAS Jodhpur

Balsamand Lake Palace

Jaisalmer - the Golden City

The impressive fortified city of Jaisalmer, also known as the Golden City, is the ideal location for couples looking for adventure. Book a camel safari and spend a night in a cosy desert camp dancing with folk dancers and sleeping under the starts, before waking up to a mesmerising sunset over the Desert Nation Park.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
