The holy city of Varanasi, which dates back to the 11th century B.C.E., has always been a muse for artists, writers and photographers alike. Nadesar Palace, which is situated on the banks of the river Ganges, is the city’s crowning glory and one of the most striking Taj hotels. This is evidenced by the fact that, from 1835 to present, the palace has hosted myriad figures of royalty as well as statesmen and celebrities.
The Palace is a tribute to Goddess Nadesari, which is why it is her namesake and has a shrine dedicated to her in the front of the Palace. The aura of spirituality that surrounds the Palace is further reinforced by the fact that it nestled among verdant gardens, mango orchards, and marigold and jasmine fields; here peace and tranquillity are inevitable.
The ten luxurious suites at the Palace are sure to find favour with art connoisseurs and enthusiasts. That’s because works of art from the Maharaja’s personal collection adorn their walls. Embellished with original pieces of furniture, the décor of the rooms reflects in design and spirit, the hues of the marigolds, jasmines, and lotuses that are offered to the holy Ganges.
The gastronomic experience at Nadesar Palace is delightful and begins with breakfast on the sun-kissed veranda followed by an exquisite plated meal for lunch and a poolside barbeque at dinner.
Unwinding here is nothing short of divine. Tee off at the mini golf course, take a guided nature walk or relax at the Jiva Spa, where you can try the rejuvenating ‘Abhisheka’ treatment, which draws inspiration from time-honoured Indian purifying rituals.
The rooms are enriched with artwork from the Maharaja’s own collection and authentic furniture. The hues of the rooms are inspired from the marigolds and jasmines which are offered to the holy Ganges.
Taste exquisite Indian and global cuisine set in the present but reminiscent of a glorious past.
