What Is It?
How Do I Get There?
Located in Himmatnagar, Gujarat, you can either drive down (it takes about 10 hours to get there) or take local transport or even travel by air (1.15 hours). Alternately, you can travel from Mumbai to Ahmedabad by flight and then drive down to Himmatnagar, which is about 1.5 hours away. Since it’s an Airbnb listing, you will only get all the details once your booking is confirmed.
What’s Unique About It?
The palace has British colonial architecture and has large darbar halls, lawns, a mango orchard, a vintage car museum and relics of the old Idar state. With 11 bedrooms, dining rooms, a conference hall and lawns for marriage or corporate functions, it surely is grand. The mango orchard has Idar Ratan mangoes specially made for the Maharaja himself. If you love all things vintage, especially cars, the museum houses a vintage collection that has cars, carriages and even motor boats.
The property serves Gujarati, traditional Rajput and continental food, as per the order you place. As a guest, you can enjoy all these facilities, along with a club room that has a pool table, a TT table, carrom and other indoor games. Another cool bit? You can bring your pet here!
