Royal palace that’s hosted Princess Diana is now on Airbnb and you can stay in a lavish suite with its own private pool – The Sun

YOU can now spend the night at a palace owned by a royal family in India for the first time.

Starting from $1,000 (£780) a night, you could experience the luxury City Palace of Jaipur.

Owned by the Jaipur Royal Family, His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh, 21, is the first to offer his royal residence on Airbnb.

Guests can stay at the Gudliya suite which is located in a private wing of the palace, which has seen royal guests including Princess Diana and Oprah Winfrey.

Inside the suite is a living room, kitchen and bathroom, with one bedroom for two people.

There is also a private indoor swimming pool and personal butler, who will organise excursions and guided tours throughout the city.

His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh said: "I am thrilled that my family and I are partnering with Airbnb to bring the splendour of Rajasthan to life for travellers from around the world.

"My own travels with Airbnb have made me feel very welcome in new cities and cultures, and I am happy that the experience of quintessential Indian hospitality will be shared with others."

The palace dates back over 300 years, built in 1727.

The stay includes a complimentary guided tour by royal staff, as well as a breakfast and dinner of authentic Rajasthani dishes at the in-house restaurant Baradari.

The proceeds go to the Princess Diya Kumari Foundation which supports underprivileged women.

Earlier this year, Jaipur was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO, and is known as the Pink City.

The city is one of the three cities in India's famous Golden Triangle route, with tourists often visiting New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur when travelling the country.

Prices start from $1,000 (£780) per night in 2019, with costs in 2020 starting from $8,000 (£6,200).
