Luxe 40-room former palace set on nine acres, with two top-notch restaurants and an Art Deco–style bar

The Lowdown

Set on nine acres of lush garden and landscaped lawn, this immaculate heritage hotel dates from 1903 and can count the Prince of Wales (later King George V) as a former guest. The 40 rooms are in keeping with the property’s rich history; suites come with silk drapes, canopy beds and mother-of-pearl mosaics, some with sweeping views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gwalior Fort. Feast on Asian and Indian delicacies in Silver Saloon’s plush courtyard, or relax in a more casual palm-shaded setting at the Court. And be sure to try the Art Deco–style Bada Bar for after-dinner cocktails. With stained glass windows, chunky colonial-style furniture and an enormous billiards table, this buzzy, coral-pink drinking hole positively drips Old World glamour. Put time aside to enjoy the pool area: The tree-lined deck and hot tub are decorated with green mosaic tiles and two beautifully carved stone lions. And don’t miss the signature Sushupti treatment at JIVA Spa: a full-body massage using a blend of honey, rice and cream.

In the Area

The Usha Kiran Palace is well placed for exploring the main Rajasthan hot spots, including the Taj Mahal, Jaipur and Udaipur. But there’s plenty to do off the well-trodden tourist trail, too. Choose from whitewater rafting, ballooning or rock climbing, or ask the concierge about parasailing at the enormous Tigra Dam, just 12 miles away. Adventure travelers can head out on a motorbike expedition through Madhav National Park. Common sightings include gazelles, leopards and kingfishers, and there are pythons and crocodiles at nearby Sakhya Sagar Lake.

A very special palace Hotel : elegant peaceful grounds surround a comfortable hotel with very good cuisine. There is an aura of gentleness about it serviced by very willing staff including a good chef and service. Gwalior’s interesting Mogul and British past and an eminent School of Music provide opportunities for those willing to explore.

Hotel staff is always ready to help you

Paradise - that’s what comes to my mind when I think of our experience at Isha Kiran Palace, Gwalior !
This property is Royal and majestic ! Original feel and warmth has been maintained and the rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable . The adjacent wash room and change room are unbelievably large and beautifully maintained . Great food and ambience! Not to miss evening Ganesh Pooja within premises !
