  • Travel site Tripadvisor has announced its Travelers' Choice Awards for 2012. The awards, based on feedback received from travelers all over the world, include the Top 25 Heritage Hotels in India.

    Not surprisingly, the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur occupies number one position on the list. Often referred to as the "Jewel of Jaipur", it's frequently voted the best hotel in India and the world. Also not surprising, 18 out of the 25 top heritage hotels are located in Rajasthan, particularly Jaipur and Jodhpur. It's quite unexpected, and pleasing, to see that a couple of hotels from Alleppey (gateway to the Kerala backwaters) have made the list too.

    Here's how the list looks:

    1. Rambagh Palace, Jaipur
    2. Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur
    3. Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
    4. Jaiwana Haveli, Udaipur (budget)
    5. Samode Palace, Jaipur
    6. Ratan Vilas, Jodhpur
    7. Emerald Isle - The Heritage Villa, Alleppey
    8. Rohet Garh, Rohet
    9. KTDC Lake Palace, Thekkady
    10. Usha Kiran Palace, Gwalior
    11. Samode Haveli, Jaipur
    12. Roopangarh Fort, Kishangarh
    13. Jagat Niwas Palace Hotel, Udaipur
    14. Brunton Boatyard, Kochi
    15. Gajner Palace Hotel, Bikaner
    16. The Gateway Hotel Ramgarh Lodge, Jaipur
    17. Naila Bagh Palace, Jaipur
    18. The House of MG, Ahmedabad
    19. Ajit Bhawan, Jodhpur
    20. Jai Mahal Palace, Jaipur
    21. Raheem Residency, Alleppey
    22. Diggi Palace, Jaipur
    23. Madhuban Hotel, Jaipur (mid range)
    24. Umaid Mahal, Jaipur (mid range)
    25. Connaught House, Mount Abu
