We visited Virasat Haveli on 21st May,13.
The stay with this royal haveli was marvelous.
We were picked up from Amritsar railway station at night 9.30 p.m. Then after night darshan of Golden Temple the driver took us to Virasat Haveli. It was around 10.30 p.m.
The driver was a very decent person, who took care of our baggage & was with us till late night.
In this night also, the staff served us dinner from starters to deserts. All food was tasty & hot. The staff was ready to serve us what ever we needed. Also Bhangda dance was performed by the professional dancers while dinner. It was fabulous.
Next morning we were pampered by parathas, halwa & lassi for breakfast.
This haveli also has camels & horses for ride on your own.
The rooms were very wide with A/C & attached clean bathrooms. The fridge in the room was full with mineral water & cold drinks.
There are 3 swimming pools & back side was big swimming pool for everybody to relax.
All sight seeing points were included in the tariff only. The tariff was so less that we could not know, how Mr. Narinderjit singh ji can afford all this in such a small amount.
Mr.Narinderjit Singh ji is a broad minded person, always tried to laugh us telling various stories. He was with us till night 1.00 a.m. showing his haveli & horses.
Staying with this haveli was really value for our money. We have decided to go again to stay with them at least for one week to relax.
THANKS ALL THE VIRASAT HAVELI TEAM FOR EVERYTHING.
GREAT VIRASAT HAVELI WITH GREAT OWNER – MR. NARINDERJIT SINGH JI.
