A complementary horse and carriage ride with champangne saunters around the tranquil grounds of mango orchards, jasmine fields, rose, flower and vegetable gardens and finishing beside the shrine to Goddess Nadesari. I was sick on my arrival and may have missed out on seeing the Ghats but if I had to be sick somewhere this was a great choice. Who... More

This incredible place was a true highlight of our trip. A true palace that has hosted dozens of royalty, celebrities, event the Dalai Lama. We stayed in the queen Elizabeth room, where she actually stayed when she visited Varanasi. Our room went on and on in terms of the number of rooms in our suite. The grounds are incredible and...

The Nadesar Palace has to be the favorite hotel I've ever stayed at in all my travels. My wife and I spent three nights here thanks to a special package that offered a significant discount for an extended stay. Three days was the bare minimum from my perspective for exploring Varanasi since there is so much to experience and the... More

Despite travelling for over 40 years and visiting nearly 30 countries, our experiences at this fantastic hotel left us deeply saddened on departure in that our stay could not continue. I won't dwell on the splendid gardens approaching the imposing residence, the horse and carriage that would drive you round the grounds, the reception group who always greeted us by... More

I visited the Nadesar Palace with my daughter in May 2014. To tell you the truth: I have never stayed in a Hotel like this. It's like out of a fairytale.

We celebrated our fifteenth wedding anniversary at historic Taj Nadesar Palace, and were treated like royalty. The palace is so beautiful, the grounds meticulously maintained, and everything so private and serene you never realize you are in bustling Varanasi. Our suite was unbelievable, the finest marble, silk and silver, and the Maharajah's own claw-foot tub! We took long walks through... More

Had the opportunity to stay at the Nadesar Palace and could not have been more pleased. With only 10 rooms, the attentive staff gets to know you and your needs. The garden surrounding the palace are well kept and there is a rich history boack to the origins as the Maharaja's guesthouse. Ate every meal at the hotel and enjoyed... More

My wife and I will always remember Nadesar Palace. The welcome that we received was wonderful and we were delighted with our room...one of only 10 in the hotel. A Maharaj's home, the hotel and grounds are fabulous and we loved the Royal Buggy Ride around the grounds. The restaurant doesn't disappoint, whether for lunch or dinner and private dining... More

The palace is an ideal choice to stay to experience some level of exclusivity while getting away from the chaos of the city of Varanasi. With minimal rooms (I think 11), you really do feel like you're in an Oasis. The palace is beautifully presented and although we had the basic standard of rooms, it was excellent. The bathroom had...
