Sujan Rajmahal Palace | Jaipur | Rajasthan | India
The royal standard of the House of Amber still flies above SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace, one of the oldest and most treasured palaces in the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur. Only the City Palace and the royal family’s private forts hold this distinction. Home to the Maharaja of Jaipur, this exquisite royal palace is located at the heart of Rajasthan’s bustling capital, less than thirty minutes from Jaipur’s airport. An enclosed oasis, secluded in verdant gardens, SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace is the repository of a celebrated and rich history.
SUJÁN is a collection of three unique lifestyles; three sumptuous tented camps in Rajasthan. Immerse yourself in our world where we connect you, uncontrived, to the very soul of our natural and cultural heritage, whilst savoring our inimitable art de Vivre, and making a positive impact in doing so.
The SUJÁN Life is one of the transformational experiences; of parts of the planet that we know intimately and treasure. Experiences for the connoisseur, the adventurous, and those looking for the extraordinary. Experiences that enrich and rejuvenate your soul.
Proudly family-owned and managed, our purpose is to protect, conserve and restore our wilderness, our culture, and be custodians of the areas where we are situated, at the same time providing our guests with the highest levels of service, comfort, and luxury.
SUJÁN Story began in Ranthambhore many years ago – Pitched under a canopy of indigenous trees, all planted by our family over the last three decades as part of our rewilding initiative, SUJÁN Sher Bagh pays tribute to our core values of giving back to nature by remaining small and intimate, encompassing the surrounding wilderness.
What sets a stay here apart is the deep-rooted family connection to the area. The SUJÁN Family has a legacy of working with wildlife through filming, monitoring, researching, and creating awareness about tigers in Ranthambhore for generations. In 1974, the family first put roots down in Ranthambhore, and during the 1980s they re-wilded a swathe of the western edge of the park which was otherwise barren and degraded without a single tree into a healthy forest that now supports an incredible bio-diversity today.
Jaisal’s ( SUJÁN’S owner and founder) family put Ranthambhore on the map through their pioneering filming of tigers in the wild and in 1988, co-established The Ranthambhore Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), working closely with the development of villages around the park boundaries. As a child, Jaisal had the privilege of spending his growing up years in the Ranthambhore forest, seeing his first tiger at just 12 weeks old, long before any tourism had arrived, learning the ways of the jungle and being taught animal tracking and bushcraft skills as a toddler under the tutelage of his father Tejbir, the late Fateh Singh Rathore and his Uncle Valmik Thapar – regarded as India’s leading wildlife experts and conservationists. Ranthambhore felt like Jaisal’s very own home in the wilderness as he learned everything he could about the forest by walking through every inch of the park; forbidden under today’s regulations.
