Taj Taj Usha Kiran Palace

Taj Usha Kiran Palace

Palace Hotel in Gwalior

Indian History has always been regaled with stories of royalty, yet few have ever been as opulent or gracious as Usha Kiran Palace, a historical property of the Taj Hotels in India. Located on a lush 9-acre landscaped estate in Gwalior, beside Jai Vilas Palace, this white-and-yellow palace was built in 1880 by H H Maharaj Jayaji Rao Scindia (Scindia Dynasty of the Marathas) and since then has hosted royalty and dignitaries on myriad occasions. True to the aesthetic spirit of Gwalior, exquisite craftsmanship is the hallmark of the palace. Every nook and corner flaunts a tapestry of ancient stone carvings and delicate filigree work that tell a story. The lavish interiors of the hotel have their own share of treasures. The Royal Suites evoke Gwalior's royal heritage with period furnishings and ornate accessories such as Venetian mirrors, mother-of-pearl mosaics and canopied beds. The Luxury Villas offer privacy and exclusivity with a private pool and a sun bathing area. The indulgence extends itself to the ancient healing and wellness therapies of the famous Jiva Spa, which also offers royal treatments that originated at the 14th century spa in the magnificent Man Mandir Palace, Gwalior Fort. History is an ingredient that is all pervasive in Usha Kiran Palace and finds favour even in its culinary flavours. Savour closely guarded recipes from the Maratha and Nepal royal kitchens accompanied by classical music from the Gwalior Gharana at Silver Saloon, the multi-cuisine restaurant. Dine under the sky at the palm-shaded The Court’s. The majestic meets the modern with contemporary amenities and technologies readily available for any meeting, event, exhibition, wedding or other social occasion. Designed to exceed expectations, professional service with a personal touch brings out the very best in every occasion, whether business or pleasure.

A holiday fit for royalty
From the time we arrived at the hotel, till we left, we were treated like royalty. The hotel promptly called and checked in advance about our arrival. The GM and his team were present to welcome us when we arrived. All safety precautions were observed by the hotel & staff. We were checked into our room and all formalities were completed in the room to ensure social distancing and convenience. Food at the hotel was exquisite. Like my wife rightly put it "Chef Rakesh cook's with heart"! He has magic in his hands. Arguably the best Indian food we've ever had... consistently delightful over three days. Could sense the love and passion in his cooking. Staff at the hotel was courteous, attentive, polite and unobtrusive. I must compliment Aditi, Bhairon Singh (front office), Amit Gupta, Sandeep, Ravi, Abhishek, Pramod (F&B) and the housekeeping staff. And last but not the least, a big thank you to the interim GM, Vishal Sharma, under whose able leadership the Taj Usha Kiran Palace is in very good hands. IHCL is lucky to have such lovely people in its midst. Once again, experienced 'Tajness in its Fullness'!
