This is official now. Rajasthan has emerged as the undisputed destination for heritage hotels. Travellers from across the globe put their stamp on 18 heritage hotels out of the 25 best properties from India.
Announcing winners of its survey 2012 Travellers’ Choice Awards for heritage hotels, TripAdvisor said the list includes top 25 heritage properties across India and 18 of them are from Rajasthan.
“The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for heritage hotels are special as they honour hotels which represent India’s rich past and heritage. These properties preserve a part of our history and recreate the magic to be shared with all. The awards are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions of travellers from India and across the world
Based on traveller’s reviews, Rajasthan became the official heritage state which has 18 of the winning 25 properties. Six hotels from the Taj Group in the state bagged an award in the heritage category while two Samode Hotel properties also made it to the list.
And it’s not just the chain hotels that have made it to the list. Smaller, standalone and boutique properties have also wowed guests and made their mark among the best.
Art, culture, hospitality and history are an integral part of heritage properties. Heritage properties offer an unparalleled experience that touches a chord with the travellers transporting them to an era gone by.
Rajasthan, incidentally, is the state that has pioneered the heritage movement in the country.
