Everything fits with Deo Bagh:
The huge grounds are beautiful, don't miss there own temple. One of the best stone carvings we saw at our trip. A swimmingpool and a spa will be added (maybe then there will be also some sunchairs to enjoy late afternoon sun - the only thing we missed.)
Rooms - we had a suite - are very nice. Everything in the room from the linen to the bathroom is of higher quality.
Dinner - buffet style - tasted very good and was very reasonable priced. If You ask, they will sent someone for a beer from outside (no licence). Breakfast was good. The dining room is a nice hall. In November it was quite cold in the evening, so the outside old dining hall wasn't in use. This one is an even nicer option.
All the staff (especially the waiters and the manager) were very friendly and helpful. (Despite the manager promised to sent as an article about the Neemrama Story, but didn't do it up to now.)
Try their tea massala on the terrace of Your room and enjoy the grounds. Try to get the same tea as the manager. It's much better then the normal version :-) .
There are two points to mention also: It's a little bit out of town. The advice our driver got via phone wasn't very clear. We missed some streets and it took us some time to get there. No walking around in the sourrounding area, but that's fine. Just relax ad Deo Bagh. At the bottom of the hill on which Deo Bagh is located are huge wedding grounds. So during wedding season (Nov. to Feb ?) there will be (on some days?) some noise from disco music until around midnight. But that's India.
Summary: A very good option to stay ad Gwailor
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Awaken history in a Char-bagh where Mughal emperors once camped ! History has it that in the late 1500 AD important Mughals camped in this “char bagh” with a stunning chhattis-dari (36-pillared pavilion) at its heart. Its underground chamber, surrounded by water during the summer provided a cool resting place for the women. Later, as the conquering Maratha army marched towards Delhi, the Jadhavs took possession of this natural water catchment area. Sardar Deorao Bhausaheb Jadhav and his son Sardar Krishnarao Deorao Jadhav used this 'bagh' as a summer house with the ladies’ section in Deo Bagh and the mens’ section in Jai Vihar, the family's current home. The garden complex houses the most exquisite family temples, a ‘hathi khana’ for elephants, horse stables and cenotaphs. Important Gwalior State meetings, especially against the British – when the valiant Rani of Jhansi fought from the fort rampart close by, were held here during that time. After India’s independence, this has been the home of Sardar Deorao Krishnarao Jadhav, his son Sardar Dhananjayrao Deorao Jadhav and his wife the Ranisaheba, since 1954 when they left their ancestral Lakshmi Vilas Rajwada. ... more less
