Set in serenity of the historical setting of the place, the hotel though devoid of grandeur offers a breathtakingly panoramic landscape strewn with heritage monuments. The pool and the lawns are added attractions, especially the Cenotaphs off the Betwa River virtually loom out of its backyard. Though we did miss the wi-fi facility, the rest was memorable and steeped in... More

Large heritage type spacious rooms, with cool gardens and historically vibrant surroundings. Try to avoid rooms near the entrance, the poolside ones are better. Do go up on the terrace to feel the monumental historical gems strewn around as far as you can see. Also notice the fine paintings that adorn the dining hall. Somehow the stay is worth the... More

Orchha tends to be off most peoples itinerary when touring this part of India, but it is more than just a handy stop off when travelling between Agra and Khajuraho. The Amar Mahal is probably the best hotel in Orchha, and the style of the building is certainly eye catching. Our bedroom was VERY large, we could have played 5-a-side... More

We did not stay at the hotel but were curious to see how it was and ended up here for a drink one afternoon. The hotel is very well laid out and has lots of open spaces and lawns at different levels. Their F&B person was very happy to show us vacant rooms across different categories as well as take... More

Great ambience, palatial rooms, friendly staff and a very beautiful swimming pool. Enjoyed the live classical singing performance by the local artists. If you wish to pamper yourself and your family stay for a longer duration and you would feel rejuvenated. There is a small boutique in the hotel premises where you can buy art, jewellery and other items.

We checked in on 23rd April 2015 by late afternoon and checked out on 24th April 2015 noon. This is great property, good service, good food and helpful staff. Kids enjoyed the pool. Orchha is a relatively hidden tourist attraction and its great to have a property like Amarmahal.

We went to Amar Mahal Orchha with a group of 60 people for a conference and very low expectations. But we were proved wrong. The resort is well laid out and spacious and very near to all the attractions..cenotaphs, sanctuary, Fort and the market. It was nice to be on foot and not take buses for each visit. The service...

We spent two nights here a couple of weeks ago. The hotel itself is beautiful and peaceful with fantastic gardens and it is located next to the river and the stunning cenotaphs. Our room was enormous and very clean and comfortable. The pool was filthy and unusable both days which I think is not acceptable for a hotel of this... More
