North India and Rajasthan camps - Brijrama Palace
Situated on it’s own Ghat next to the River Ganges, Brijrama Palace was built in 18th century by the royal house of Nagpur and is one of the oldest structures in Varanasi. Guests arrive by boat.
Constructed of solid sandstone, and an impressive heritage building, this hotel is a great place to stay if you are keen to be in the very heart of the action and experience Varanasi's intensity; the Ganges, the evening aarti and morning pujas can all be viewed from the palace itself.
Lovingly restored over a period of 10 years, the Brijrama Palace still retains much of its original charm and features hand-painted ceilings embellished with gold leaf, murals, beautiful stone carvings and a central courtyard surrounded by ornate sandstone pillars. There are 32 en-suite rooms and suites, each offering old world charm with contemporary facilities and private seating areas from where you can soak up the panoramic views of the river and horizon. It’s perfect for viewing sunrise and sunset too.
The hotel offers two dining options; the Darhbhanga restaurant offers a selection of international vegetarian cuisines whilst the Kamalaya café enjoys an al fresco seating area that overlooks the River Ganges. There is also a variety of activities on offer for guests including sunrise yoga on the rooftop terrace and live classical music in the atrium.
