Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar HRH Group of Hotels
The choices today are too many if you are planning a wedding! You could be on the beaches of Thailand or Goa; you may also opt for spectacular settings in Italy or Greece. The sky is the only limit to one's imagination.
However, heritage destinations, like Udaipur, are in a league of their own. What we, at HRH Group of Hotels, offer is a slice of history, a living heritage which gives our palaces in Udaipur an iconic status that simply cannot be matched by beaches or hill resorts.
And to be fair, one should not compare apples with oranges. Our heritage palace-hotels have an unmistakable warmth and graciousness which cannot be duplicated or copied.
The HRH Group’s Grand Heritage Palaces - Shiv Niwas Palace, Fateh Prakash Palace and Jagmandir Island Palace - are unique palace-hotels of India. I am stating a historical fact not indulging in any hype! The uniqueness is derived from its grand architecture, its luxurious suites with rare paintings, crystal chandeliers and objets d’art, and spacious courtyards and lawns.
Needless to say, it is a major challenge for us is to maintain and keep alive its original character. Please remember that these are palaces where once the ‘Royal Families’ lived and entertained their guests for over centuries; that is why these palaces share a distinctive character and guests here are able to ‘Experience the Original in the Abode of Kings’. This is our USP, unmatched and incomparable with any.
Keeping in mind, 21st century guests, we have refurbished our heritage-venues sensitively to ensure the ease of rolling out the most elaborate wedding ceremonies and celebrations with music and dance performances. We make these Regal Weddings happen, and for the last two decades, HRH Group of Hotels has pioneered these experiences and remains the preferred choice for celebrities, industrialists and high networth families.
Speaking of planners/agencies that we work with, we have an open-door policy of working with professional wedding planners / event managers and agencies, whether they are from India or overseas. Needless to say, there are some leading wedding planners who have utilized the HRH Group palaces and venues more regularly and impressively than others.
We work in tandem with these planners and agencies and simply insist that the palace protocol be followed, nothing outrageous may be planned or executed, and of course, we need to stay on the right side of the law at all times.
As the wedding and events industry is growing fast in India, we welcome first-timers and younger companies and are ready to facilitate their big weddings / events for them. No compromises on that score!
In this guest article, the Prince of Mewar, explains why in spite of innumerable exotic options of destinations, Udaipur's Palaces remain to be amongst the most sought-after venues in the world.
