In total, the luxury brand has five hotel projects, representing more than 1,300 guest-rooms, slated to open next year. Noteworthy openings include Jaipur, the Pink City.

Offering 199 spacious and luxurious guest-rooms, nine 1- and 2-bedroom villas as well as a Presidential Suite, the hotel’s atmosphere will reflect the unique character of the region, while also capturing the air of a modern day palace. Guest-rooms will include over-sized bathrooms with soaker tubs, state-of-the-art Bose sound systems and 40″ flat panel televisions.
The brand’s exclusive Fairmont Gold product, a hotel within a hotel concept with 38 luxuriously appointed guest-rooms and private lounge facilities, will make its debut in the market as well. Also tempting hotel guests will be a broad range of culinary options including a full service restaurant featuring regional specialties.
