Bhanwar Vilas Palace is a series of delightful discoveries-from the first awe-inspiring glimpse of its magnificent façade standing out against the ancient town of Karauli, to an exploration of its edgy decor aesthetic-an eclectic melding of Oriental and Art Deco forms. Built in 1938 it is the family home of Maharaja Krishna Chandra Pal, who is the 181st in an illustrious line tracing itself back to Lord Krishna and is the head of the YaduvanshiRajputs.
Bhanwar Vilas is unique in that none of the rooms are newly constructed, they are all part of the original edifice and with antique furniture in each room to present an authentic, and not merely simulated, heritage experience. The family undertook the conversion of Bhanwar Vilas into a heritage hotel in 1992 restoring and decorating its period interiors, Laliqueand Bauhaus lights, exquisite European tapestries, portraits and furniture in a completely authentic manner while modernising its luxuries.
The palace is a treasure trove of antiques and paintings-almost a living museum! Besides this, the 45 acre grounds hold sprawling fields, organic vegetable gardens, stables with rare palomino Marwari horses that are available for riding, an organic dairy, and garages with their display of vintage cars and ancient palanquins and howdahs which ensure that every inch of the estate feels like a momentous discovery. After all, the chief pleasure of a hidden gem is to find your own happy space within!
Kick back and relax with a soothing massage after a day of sightseeing or dress in traditional regalia for a dinner under the stars. We also offer cooking demonstrations in case you want to replicate some flavourful traditional dishes back home!
As the historic heads of the ancient area of Brajbhoomi, a stay with the family offers not simply a slice of history but a composite understanding of the unique culture of this area. Join us on an extravagant spiritual and cultural voyage, amidst gracious, regal hospitality.
