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.

Great stay at a heritage property
It was a fantastic three night's stay at a heritage property. What was once a palace is now a prestigious hotel of Gwalior. And thanks to Taj group they're maintaining this heritage property very well with least modifications to it's original grandeur. The check in was smooth and quick. Nipesh, Pawan and Sangeeta were absolute pleasure to deal with. Later too, the three of them did everything they could to make sure that our stay was great....always ready to serve you with a pleasant smile. Hasmukh ji and Manvendra in the housekeeping were impressive. Manvendra, in particular, is thorough professional even at this tender age. I wish him all the best for his bright future in the hospitality industry. Amit Gupta ji was nice to talk to and gave us some useful tips about Gwalior. The food is good and Navneet, Ajay, Pramod and Abhishek in the restaurant would do their best to serve the dishes of your choice. Navneet and Ajay in particular are very dedicated to their job, knowing fully well what makes a guest feel at home. Special thanks to the two of you for making our stay memorable. Taj Usha Kiran is maintaining a high level of hygiene in this pandemic time but I sincerely feel there is room for improvement. For example I was surprised to find that none of the hotel staff was aware of a UV sanitizer box. Hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and UV box should be provided in every room without a guest asking for it. Cleaning and disinfecting common areas should be done more frequently....times are bad after all. Taj Usha Kiran rents it's lawns for marriages etc. Just one day before we checked in, there was a marriage function in it's lawns and the whole area was littered with disposable cups, plates and even stale food. It was cleaned only the next day. Cleaning of the lawns, which are an important part of the property, should be taken more seriously. Overall, a wonderful property to relax and unwind. Huge rooms, beautiful gardens, chirping of birds, lot of space to walk around, good food....you won't feel like going out anywhere. Can just chill even if your stay is long. An ideal getaway for people of Delhi especially. Thanks Taj Usha Kiran team!
