It's hard to know where to start. Ahilyah Fort is in the middle of Nowhere India but well worth the journey to get there. WE flew to Indore and had a car to Maheshwar. The place is a heritage hotel and the palace of the Prince who is a wonderful host. The rooms are all different. We booked the one... More

We really loved this hotel, it is BOHO chic. But if you need power showers, faultless air conditioning, and seamless service, it's not for you. It's more like staying in a lovely friends house - help yourself to drinks (all included in the cost- including free laundry, which is a nice touch), simple (but quality) food, nothing is rushed -...

Ahilya Fort felt magical from the moment I entered. The grounds with enchanting gardens at every turn and the view of the river and ghat was unlike any place I've been to.

We stayed three nights and you need at least that much time to appreciate the experience of staying here. We booked a superior room at about $500 US a night which included all food and drinks. The room was lovely...a perfect evocation of an old palace with modern comforts discreetly tucked away. Everything is done with impeccable taste and it... More

THis was a wonderful concept - everything inclusive, including drinks and laundry (this meant we came home with clean clothes - a real luxury). Cocktails every evening from 7.30 - 8.30 when you had the opportunity to mix with everyone else. We were very cleverly placed at tables every evening with different people in order to socialise.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The majestic 250 years old Ahilya Fort sits on the edge of a cliff, high above the sacred Narmada River, surrounded by the beautiful and unexploited town of Maheshwar. The views over the river and ghats are exceptional. Replete with myths and legend, Ahilya Fort offers guests a rare chance to get off the tourist trail and an abundance of things to see and do. With the fabulous, deserted city of Mandu nearby and the famed island temple of Omkareshwar even closer, this is a place at which to spend time and relax but from which you can also explore the area, undisturbed by the other tourists – a stroll down through the town to the ghats is a must. The food is delicious and it’s all-inclusive so, once here, you pay for nothing – be it food, excursions or e-mail! The pool is lovely; terraces and shady areas abound; meals are taken in different areas of the fort; the charming rooms and tents have superb views, balconies & gardens; the weaving center here is famous nationwide. A boat trip at sundown is something you will never forget. Truly a memorable place where you could spend days or weeks!There are 10 bedrooms scattered around the premises and the rates include full board and all excursions. It is the most perfect base for visiting Mandu (1 hour away) and is just a 2-hour drive from Indore. It makes the perfect place to end or start a holiday, as there is so much to do. From here you may also visit Dhar, Baneshwar and Omkareshwar. Being a gourmet himself, your host Prince Richard Holkar has the highest standards and the food here is delicious. Staying here is like a time wrap as the village is still enclosed within the fort itself and is truly wonderful to explore in your own time. ... more   less
