It isn't an exaggeration when it is said that living at Ahilya अहिल्या Fort Maheshwar (just 90 km from Indore, the nearest airport) is akin to a stay at Prince Richard Holkar's home. Our 2 days weekend stay was a fabulous authentic experience of royal Maratha मराठा hospitality! What impressed us the most? Several highlights indeed. First & the foremost,... More

The hotel is an historic building, sympathetically and tastefully renovated, and providing the best in understated elegance India-style - the ambience is elegant in a relaxing, airy... More

The old Ahilya Fort and family seat of the Holkars, this is a real slice of Indian history. Rooms are individually styled and comfortable. The gardens are beautiful with secluded seating and a busy kitchen garden which supplies the hotel with fresh fruit and vegetables. There are quiet courtyards and a terrace where we enjoyed a stunning view of river... More

What a fantastic place. Right on the edge of the river which is within easy reach and worth doing the boat trip to the temple in the middle of it. One can walk along the gahts and meet the people which is great fun. The hotel is wonderful - food, service, quaintness and exceedingly friendly. The vegetable gardens are a... More

I visited Ahilya fort in Sept 2014. It was a really good experience. I was transported back in time.They have skillfully preserved the old furniture and ethos of the past era. The hospitality was excellent. Especially enjoyable was dinner and drinks on the patio overlooking Narmada River. The view from luxury tent is the best among all the rooms. It... More
