We had a much needed couple of quiet days at Bhanwar Vilas, they took great care of us, we learned a lot and had great experiences. The house was built, furnished and decorated by the grandfather of the current owner (a delightful host), and it is as though nothing has changed. It is an Art Deco country house, and terrific to explore. The farm is organic with a great dairy wonderful veggies (I was relieved to learn that the very healthy resident chickens are for eggs, not dinner) The village walk and visit to the old City Palace are a must, and a camel cart ride to the nearby lake was also good fun. Meals were excellent, we had a gorgeous suite and the staff were terrific. Spending time with the owner was an added bonus, a charming man who shared his time generously and told us all about the history of the property.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bhanwar Vilas Palace is a series of delightful discoveries-from the first awe-inspiring glimpse of its magnificent façade standing out against the ancient town of Karauli, which dates from 1348, to an exploration of its edgy decor aesthetic-an eclectic melding of Oriental and Art Deco forms. Built in 1938 it is the family home of Maharaja Krishna Chandra Pal, who is the 181st in an illustrious line tracing itself back to Lord Krishna and is the head of the Yaduvanshi Rajputs. As the historic heads of the ancient area of Brajbhoomi, a stay with the family offers not simply a slice of history but a composite understanding of the unique culture of this area. Join us on an extravagant spiritual and cultural voyage, amidst gracious, regal hospitality. ... more less
