Inside The Hotel
Palace Gardens & Bird Watching
It isn’t just the peacock that flaps its wings here, though. Wagtails, babblers, mynahs, pariah kites, tailorbirds and red-vented bulbuls are just a few of the migrants and residents that fill the gardens with their chirps and songs.
As the symphony of the birds fills your head and empties it of every care, and the gentle breeze accompanies you on your walk, it’s easy to see why the ladies of the zenana escaped to these gardens to get away from the proceedings of the palace.
Let your palace butler guide you to the right bird books in our palace bookstore and assist you in your bird-watching trips.
Sit back on the sprawling upper front lawns of the palace as they enthral you with their lively steps and jaunty tunes against the backdrop of the majestic palace - a show nearly identical to the ones the maharajas of yore enjoyed.
Summer timings: 7:30 p.m onwards.
Winter timings: 7:00 p.m onwards.
Mr. Dandiya is available every evening on the upper front lawns from 8:00 onwards. For an appointment and consultation charges, do speak to your palace butler.
Sports and Activities
Enjoy a lap or two in the sparkling outdoor pool. Make your way to the palace jogging track for a brisk walk or jaunty run. Take a short walk from the main port cochere to the mini-golf course, croquet field and table tennis room.
This tour into the past begins every evening in the lobby, at 5:30 from October to March, and at 6:00 from April to September. Revel in these echoes of the palace’s royal past, painstakingly retained and maintained in a more modern age, with our compliments.
