Oh what an extraordinarily spectacular experience the Taj Nadesar Palace was, and what an ideal compliment it was to the wondrous holy city of Varanasi! My mother and I culminated our 2-week tour of India in January 2015 in this out-of-this-world city and opulent hotel, once the residence of the local Maharaja and royal family. I, firstly, extend my profound... More

Simply put, the Nadesar Palace is a true triumph of the hospitality business. We visited the Nadesar Palace for four nights in August, and were simply blown away by its charm and luxury. In a country of amazing service and incredible hotels, the Nadesar Palace is a resounding stand-out from our two-week trip to the North of India. The hotel... More

If you want to get married in a beautiful palace, with history, grandeur, a holy atmosphere and the least amount of stress -- I suggest you pick Nadesar Palace in Varanasi.

After we had recovered from the full-on welcome (conch shell fanfares, garlands of flowers round our necks and glasses of champagne) we found a lively, friendly and engaging hotel - surprisingly intimate for such a luxurious setting. It was a marvellously peaceful retreat from the noise and crowding in Varanasi, offering a world of its own, with high levels of... More

Cannot say enough about the small Taj hotel in the exciting city of Varanasi. There are only ten rooms an the one restaurant but that is all you need here. The rooms are well appointed and beautiful, the food is to die for, they could not do enough for their guests and we're happy to provided traditional Indian food from... More

Nadesar Palace is quite simply, the perfect place to stay in this wonderful ancient city. We were lucky enough to stay five nights and really experience this enchanting city and also to enjoy spending some time in the historic Palace and its beautiful grounds. We left feeling like family and we will definitely be back. We don't want to name... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed in anywhere in the world and certainly the best on our extended trip to India. It is a very small hotel run by the Taj Group with only twelve rooms, all unique but beautiful furnished with a mixture of new and wonderful antiques. The greeting when you arrive is warm and friendly... More

Nadesar Palace or one can say a Guest house for British East India Company is a beautiful colonial property, we stayed in a standard room ( the Persia room) which was well appointed and extremely comfortable but located just next to dinning area so a bit noisy. The staff, young chef, yoga instructor, are the best. Beside a noisy room... More

Faultless rooms and facilities, service & food in this tranquil retreat from the city. The boutique nature of the hotel means a truly personal service from the managers and staff. Brilliant young chef - try the Thali as a great introduction to a range of local tastes.

I have stayed in a few luxury properties, including "palaces" in India. What I liked about this one is the small number of rooms, which makes the service extremely personalized. With only ten rooms, they actually make you feel like royalty. After my recent three day stay there, I want to book the entire hotel for a group of family... More
