Shivavilas Palace

near Hampi, Karnataka

Bag the Maharani Suite if you are looking for the best. The Maharaja Suite and the rest of the 10 Deluxe Rooms follow after.

All the rooms have a classic, royal ambience: spacious with burly, vintage furniture, neck-stretching ceilings, sepia photographs in intricate frames, clunky black switches hanging on wooden boards and rich, heavy linen.

A separate dressing area and a bathroom, which could double as two rooms in a regular hotel, complete one’s quarters.

Ask for the twin-bedded Deluxe Rooms on the ground floor if that’s your need, otherwise the first-floor Suites are more atmospheric, breezier and have better views of the swimming pool or large trees straining to reach the balconies.

The first floor can be reached by a large wooden staircase that creaks beneath your feet and is fitted with brass struts to hold the non-existent carpet. Otherwise, take the lift.

The ample lounge area outside the rooms is yet another place to plonk into the deep cane chairs with a good book. The many photographs of birds around Sandur, clicked by the last Maharaja himself, keep you company.
