Orchha is best described as a Medieval Legacy in Stone....frozen in Time ! This fantastic property is within the precinct of the Jahangir Mahal at Orchha. Its Maharaja Suite on the top floor is really fit for the Kings ! The large entrance verandah, beautifully curtained with lace, has a swing on one side and a raised sitting arrangement on the other side overlooking the monumental Jahangir Mahal. One then enters into another verandah having a sitting room and a private Dining Room for six. Through an intricately carved wooden door, one is ushered into the majestic Bedroom, complete with a king -size fluffy bed, a large cushioned sofa, separate wardrobes and a writing table. The room is tastefully decorated with other antic pieces, paintings and fine drapery. However, the suite's Bathroom is the ultimate piece-de-resistance ! With a huge marble tub and wall-size mirrors, it gives an exquisite feeling during a luxurious bath. And while sitting on the raised toilet seat in the corner room, one can gaze around the abundant greenery of the countryside through glass windows. ( We have requested the Hotel Management to put curtains on the windows therein ! )
The chandeliers in the large Dinning Hall of the Hotel adds elegance to the regal surroundings. The ever courteous staff is eager to please their guests and one can taste some real local cuisine on special request. Thee is plenty of parking space in front of the Hotel.
Overall, the trip was really nostalgic for us on our marriage anniversary, having visited Orchha and stayed at the same Hotel and the same room way back in 1990.
