If you've been jealous of how the royals live, we found this palace dripping in splendour, the private residence of an actual Maharaja where you can live your regal dream. With over 11 rooms, you can score a chance to live in a suite and avail all the fancy facilities that come along with it.
The palace boasts of British colonial architecture, and has huge Darbar halls, sprawling lawns, and a mango orchard with Idar Ratan mangoes (everyone loves mangoes, don't they?). The Maharaja's love for vintage cars is very evident; from the Maharaja’s museum that houses a vintage collection of cars, carriages and motorboats.
What Do We Get: The property serves an array of 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, swimming pool, TT table, carrom and other indoor games. Know what's cooler? You can bring your pet(s) along!
How To Reach: 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 approx.). Alternatively, 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.
Okay, where does one begin? We’re still coming to terms with the fact that we get a chance to explore something as unique as this, and are planning to make a trip just for this reason. With so much of history to absorb and relish, we believe you should experience this too.
Shell Out: 5000/ night with dinner and breakfast for 2 people.
