North India and Rajasthan camps - Nadesar Palace
Situated in beautiful gardens and mango orchards, Nadesar Palace was once the residence of the Maharaja of Varanasi. Royal guests, dignitaries and celebrities were entertained with pomp and splendour beneath sparkling chandeliers and to the sound of peacocks calling from the lawns. In recent years the property has been beautifully renovated to create a luxury boutique heritage hotel managed by the Taj group with the reassuring addition of modern facilities and amenities.
Works of art from the maharaja’s collection decorate the walls of the 10 suites and original pieces of furniture recreate the atmosphere of a bygone era. A new addition is the Jiva Spa where the treatment rooms are infused with the fragrance and soft light of traditional Indian incense and lamps. Yoga, meditation and evening chanting classes are also available. The hotel can arrange a tour of the city in the maharaja’s horse drawn buggy and a guided walk of the palace grounds. This gorgeous hotel is a wonderful retreat and together with the excellent service your stay here will help you get the most out of your experience of Varanasi.
