I rarely write reviews on hotel as other people have written most views but feel like I have to compliment this Taj. Have been to India many times before and had some bad experiences with some other Taj hotels, but after staying here, those bad memories are forgiven. The room, food, grounds and specially the services live up to expectations... More

I just had time for lunch at Nadesar. One of the three most memorable meals of my travels over many decades. We had similar food elsewhere, but this time the flavours were fascinating and had me trying to guess the ingredients. Spoil yourself and choose their signature item: Bensari Muslim Gharana Thali. A blend of Mughal, Awadhi, Hindu and East... More

The first impression is amazing. Greeted with conch shells blowing and watermelon juice. Shown to an amazing suite which queen Elizabeth slept in in 1961. Absolutely fabulous. Unfortunately that is where the experience started to go downhill. We went to the restaurant and were shown to our table. The waiter didn't seem to think flies on our glasses were a... More

We stayed at the Nadesar Palace two weeks ago for two nights. The contrast between the luxurious hotel and the city of Varanasi is huge! The Palace is a heaven of tranquility, with very nice personal service, set in a huge park. The streets and the ghats of the city are cramped, dirty and noisy! The hotel has only about... More

We stayed here when the hotel had visiting dignitaries staying so we felt we missed out on some of the top notch service this hotel is famous for. The location is fabulous and having the Gateway hotel next door is an added bonus

If you want to see what it might have been like to live like an aristocrat in colonial India, the Nadesar Palace gives you that opportunity. It is set in a beautiful historic mansion, appropriately restored, with only 10 or so rooms. The rooms themselves were very comfortable; large, with all the amenities you'd expect. Service was excellent -- very... More

The hotel does appear faded at first, despite the elaborate welcoming fanfare. Its design is indeed unremarkable. This hotel is all about the experience- it doesn't get more spiritual than that, right? The staff are fantastically concerned about the wellbeing of their handful of guests- there are only 10 rooms. the real coup is in the spa- the best yoga... More

Wow! What an incredible place set in gorgeous gardens. The welcome is memorable with musicians playing a fanfare, a bindi mark being made on your forehead and beads strung around your neck before you are sat down in reception with a glass of fruit juice while check-in formalities are completed. They take a photo of you sitting with your drink... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Rooms are very luxurious, lovely marble bathrooms. There are amazing veranda's and balconies, sitting rooms, and pool area to relax in. As there is only 10 rooms in the hotel, it felt like I had the place to myself for most of the time. Staff are very friendly. It is a... More
