It was a awesome experience with one-hour audio guide. Everyone should go there atleast once.Impressive palace, its elaborate interiors boast well-maintained mosaics, chandeliers and artworks. It’s set in expansive parklike grounds, which include a golf course.

The Laxmi Vilas Palace is a top attraction for locals and tourists alike. One must not forget to visit the museum, stroll on the vast greens, and try out the lunch buffet at the newly opened LVP Banquets restaurant.

They have also started 4 course silver service meals at lunch time for around 700 rupees - but its not advertised well... More

In olden days Vadodara has been ruled by Gaikwads and the Laxmi Vilas Palace is their place of stay. One of the best maintained palace and really magnificient in nature. Whoever goes to Vadodara must visit the Palace. Also you can see best paintings.

Have visited palace several times for a heritage tour of school children. Those interested in History, Art, Culture topics, this is a must visit place. Palace showcases some of finest paintings by Raja Ravi Varma apart from the fact that building itself is an architectural marvel.
