Boutique luxury heritage accommodation for your unique tour of India

Heritage and boutique accommodation

Our personal favourites are the heritage hotels that retain their character and provide a more personal service.

India is renowned for the wide variety of heritage hotels which have been created from former merchant haveli and royal palaces and lodges.

Heritage hotels are quirky and full of character with rooms often reflecting their history. There is something quite nostalgic to relaxing on a balcony and enjoying a cool drink or chai. Often there is no lift and the staircase can be narrow and steep.

You certainly feel you are exploring an authentic part of local history. Rooms and bathrooms can be eclectic, but always comfortable. Our clients have enjoyed experiencing the unique atmosphere that staying at a heritage hotel brings.
