I see the above is marrying at the wonderfully luxurious and sumptious Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajhastan, India.

We stayed there in 2001 and it was wooonnnnddderful!

Hey anne ,are you sure it was'nt the
Unmade Bed Palace in Jodhpur?
Or are you a rich jet-setter like Liz?
Re: Liz Hurley by Spursfan on 24 February 2007 10:11am
Don't know Kazzzz, it is an Indian businessman I think. They are getting married in the UK first but the main wedding is in this hotel (so the rumours say). Also according to rumour this last wedding & party is costing £1m !!! I don't like her either Kazzzz.

Ha Ha I'll show you the pix if you like Johnny !!

And surely you mean Liz is a jet-setter like ME not the other way round !! ;-)

It was a once-in-a-lifetime 4-week holiday to celebrate our 30th wedd ann.
We stayed in several excellent hotels, including the Lake Palace in Udaipur, the Taj Mahal in Bombay oops I mean Mumbai which Michael stayed in, and the Yak and Yeti in Kathmandu which he also stayed in (complete with Yeti footprint in the grounds!!!).

It was an experience we probably will never repeat unless we win the pools (or I marry Johnny (Depp not -the monkey))- we had just sold a house we'd been renting out so spoiled ourselves.

These hotels, all ex, or in the case of the Umaid Bhawan current, palaces, really know how to look after you! Sitar players in the dining rooms who play just for you; swimming pools where you are either on your opwn or with only a few people and there is a man who brings you as many towels as you want and will move your bed wherever you want and looks after your every (well nearly) need; your room cleaned when you leave it, not at a certain time so if you are late or ill you miss it; beds turned back at night with a flower/choc/poem and slippers placed by the side of the bed for you (obviously the idle rich are incapable of a) pulling back the covers b) getting their slippers!!). I have ended that sentence as it was getting ridiculously long!! In one hotel, at Varanasi, I had to spend the day in the room as I was feeling ill, having all but passed out the night before through tiredness on the steps of the Ganges. In the evening I felt better so went down with my husband for something to it. When we came back not only had they had cleaned the room (having not been able to get into it all day) but they had left me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a get well card!!!

I would love to go back but this time to stay in one hotel, maybe the Umaid Bhawan or one in Khajaro which name I forget. Khajaro was lovely and it was where went on safari and were lucky enough to see a tiger!

Anne (with fingers crossed for the lottery!!!)
