Shiv Vilas palace is a hidden treasure not only because of the property itself being beautiful, well maintained and classy but also because of the legacy the last maharaj (Y R Ghorpade) has left for the people of the tiny town of Sandur! The staff and caretakers ( Mr John Curtis and Sameer) of the palace were par excellence and took very very good care of us!
We recommend this place highly for people who are looking for some quiet downtime, or people who are history buffs and want to visit hampi! Either ways shiv villas will be a great experience.
The only negative are the roads and the approach but hopefully that too will improve in a few months.
