The Shiv Vila is a grandiose hotel that takes your breath away when you first enter. But that;s it. The room was small for such a grand place and of the marble in the bathroom walls was missing chunks of it. The food was pitiful; rolls hard as a rock, run of the mill desserts and overall and the fish... More

I want to start with the review by thanking Mr. Jacque Franze for inviting me to visit the property. I travel around the world and been to some amazing and luxurious properties but still I was amazed and mesmerized seeing how beautifully the hotel has been created. From architecture point of view it’s a blend of Rajputana and European architecture... More

If you want to experience royalty this is the place ... The glimpse of the palace from the main gate is mesmerising... As you enter the palace you feel like being in the age of the maharajas and being one of them... Staff treats you very well and the food is awesome... I genuinely recommend this palace...

We were in shiv vilas to attend my cousin's wedding in June'14, we stayed in Kesar Mahal Suite, a great room with royal ambience and modern facilities. To say more about this royal palace resort its a great place to have a luxurious, relaxing stay after living the city and work life rush behind.

I visited just for a couple of nights and was floored by the magnificent architecture. The food and service was very mediocre for such a hotel. The washrooms had rusty taps and almost broken toilet seat. It is not the best place for a single traveller.
