HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 February 2017

Beautiful grounds behind a large perimeter wall with huge gates attended by security. Pool was crystal clear and spotlessly clean. This is a smaller hotel of the "boutique" variety.

For a family.....it is a good hotel to relax, as it is huge, rooms are too big and nobody to see you what you are doing.... For a couple or a single traveler.....not recommended at all !! You have to struggle with staff and amenities as well !!

Felt like royalty in this historic palace turned hotel. The rooms are beautiful. The restaurant full of tasty options and live Indian music. What a treat and the Jiva Spa provided powerful relaxation under the talented hands of Narayam who provided a fanstastic hour-long massage.
