Taj Nadesar Palace Hotel Review
This restored heritage palace provides the most luxurious accommodations in Varanasi, as it did in its heyday, when guests of the Maharaja of Benarisi included Queen Elizabeth, Lord Mountbatten, Jahawalar Nehru, and the King of Persia. The rooms, evoking that bygone era, are elaborately furnished with pieces from the maharaja's private collection—vuluptuous four-poster teak beds with silk canopies, Victorian-style armoires, antique bathtubs. There's a pool with ghatlike steps, a golf course, and manicured gardens amid fields of marigolds, jasmine, and mango trees. The signature spa treatment is the ritual purifying bath once performed on royalty for special occasions.
