Taj Taj Usha Kiran Palace

Taj Usha Kiran Palace

Indian History has always been regaled with stories of royalty, yet few have ever been as opulent or gracious as Taj 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 Taj 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.

Hospitality was extremely good. Special mention for Mr Pawan and Mr Bherav Singh at front desk. They made check in process very simple... guests were overwhelmed with customary welcome and escorting. Very nice property well maintained, true palace with amazing heritage. I had hosted a party for 300 guests the food was amazing especially the Rajasthani theme lunch. Chef Rakesh was very particular and took special interest in deciding the menu. F & B manager Amit and Sandeep were very helpful with every little problems and made arrangements superbly. Especial thanks to Mr Vivek Sharma GM who was working throughout day and night to make everything go perfectly. Only one thing was like pepper.... that the hotel vendor for decor was not very good... half of the chairs were without covers.. the lights were very less in the garden. Rest all was perfect. Thanks UKPH team and Taj hospitality for a great show!
