A magnificent journey into the past


Bhanwar Vilas Palace

Bhanwar Vilas, the sprawling Art Deco palace in the picturesque town of Karauli is the property of the erstwhile rulers of Karauli who have turned their historic home into a hotel. It does not carry the “heritage” label as a mere token but strives to preserve it in everything from the interiors to the lifestyle offered. Built by Maharaja Ganesh Pal in 1938, it has been a heritage hotel for the last twenty years and the owners bring all their experience to bear upon providing an unforgettable stay. A visit to Karauli and Bhanwar Vilas is a must for the discerning traveller with an appreciation for niche destinations where culture and history continue to flourish.
