The Trident Agra is set in beautiful gardens and is only a short distance away from the Taj Mahal. This luxury hotel is built of red stone, reminiscent of the Mughal era, and is designed around a landscaped central courtyard with swimming pool and fountains. Trident features an informal, multicuisine brasserie as well as an alfresco Italian restaurant.
Originally the residence of the scions of the Shekhawat clan of Rajputs, Shahpura House is set in a relatively quiet residential area in downtown Jaipur. This converted hotel with its colourful Shekhawati frescoes and domes reflects the fusion of Hindu Rajput and Islamic Mughal-style architecture. Each of the 38 individually decorated rooms and suites are simply furnished and tastefully decorated by combining traditional features with essential modern amenities.
Conveniently located adjacent to both international and domestic airport terminals, the Novotel New Delhi Aerocity is a large comfortable hotel in close vicinity to several excellent restaurants and shopping malls. Guestrooms are spacious and contemporary in design with all the amenities you would expect from a modern hotel.
