My first trip to India, and I was excited to stay in a palace with a real maharajah! Exploring the place yielded many special places. Our charismatic host was most charming, and his commitment to his people was inspiring. He took us to visit some tribal people which was one of the highlights of our trip. He was rather embarrassed... More

My second visit to lovely and serene Darbargadh Palace in Poshina...so enjoy the ambiance - walking in the flower-filled gardens on sitting the veranda. Loved the statuary, the works of art and especially being a part of the wonderful family that hosted us. My room was elegant, the food varied and interesting with many local specialties Loved the jeep safari... More

Went there in November with friends after reading some positive reviews about the place. The palace looks nothing like the photos and lacks basic amenities. We had to struggle a bit getting warm water to take shower and the room had no phone facility either. I had spent the month before at the Rann of Kutch and Pushkar in Rajasthan... More

I am surprised that it did not look like the photos.Most of them have been put by guests. Sorry about the hot water.It seems that when it is used in the evening,it does not generate enough by morning as it has solar water heating.Am trying to improve on it.Maybe the price thing a budget traveler may find expensive but Rs.7000/-...

Went there in September with friends and family after reading some positive reviews. But was left disappointed by the lack of basic facilities like TV, warm water, room phone etc. Food was a notch below average. Not worth the price they charge. Better palaces to explore elsewhere in Gujarat.

A true highlight on my recent travels through India. The palace was delightful and the rooms charming! The Maharaja and his family are warm and inviting and make you feel at home at this beautiful palace. The food was delicious! The nearby villages are a must see!

If you are looking for a posh spa, this is not it. But if you want to see a slice of rural India in the company of a respected citizen of the area, it is great. The host, Hanu, is charming and knowledgable, and patiently answers myriad questions as he leads tours to neighboring villages. The food was good, the... More

Thank you to the Maharajah, wife and family for the royal reception and hospitality. Thank you to the Maharajah for the jeep safari to see the nearby villages. The town of Poshina is within walking distance. It was a very enjoyable and memorable stay.
