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

This hotel included all ones requirements - even mosquito repellent . The staff were amazing as were the other guests and the stay was an unforgettable experience. It was all so exciting with a wonderful view of the ghats and the many people going to the river Narmada. The Monday evening puja plus a yearly festival which meant lots of... More

We came with the Deccan Heritage Foundation trip after visiting very special places like Udaipur; crossing the village of Maheswar, busy, horn hanking, nothing special to note, and the gate of the fort, the courtyard already stunning then after a small door:.. paradise, time has stopped, a wonderful host greeting you with his wife give you the impression of being...

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

This place is a real paradise in Earth. it is by Narmada River which looks like a small Varanasi. Everything is included, even alcohol and laundry. Food and service are superb. Stay já. A suíte overlooking the River like Narmada Suíte

Ahilya Fort,what a magnificent place to spend a few days by the Narmada river and in a fort so tenderly refurbished so that its historical value and beauty is discreetly highlighted. We have been going back to Ahilya for for almost 25 years and every time we love it more. Many of the rooms have been beutifully refurbished , food... More

Our group of six had a three night stay here at the end of three week game viewing trip in India. Ahilya Fort was the perfect place to finish up. The fort is perched on a high bank overlooking the Narmada River and all the village life below - much like Varanasi, except without the dirt and chaos. The food... More

This was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life. Perhaps part of the joy of being at Maheshwar's Ahilya's Fort hotel is the relief of making it after a very difficult journey there. Nonetheless, a combination of beautiful rooms, amazing home grown food, dinner in a different part of the fort each night - including the ramparts in... More

There is not doubt: it is a great location (overlooking the ghats), has nice rooms, excellent trained staff, nice pool, very good food (from its own organic plantatations), offers free champagne, drinks, free boat trip, in total a great atmosphere. Our stay was part of a package, so we did not know the single price of each accomodation. When we... More
