Living like royalty

Romance, history, opulent splendour; these palaces and forts have it all. If your budget allows, push the boat out for a night or two of luxury.
India is the place where staying in such impressive buildings is a choice in more than one location, but there are other opportunities elsewhere too.

If you are lucky, you get to stay in a place like Bhainsrorgarh Fort once in your lifetime. Certainly like nowhere else we have ever been, this 200-year-old fort took us back in time but provided every convenience we could need - including a fantastic walk-in shower. The food was amazing and could be eaten on the rooftop, on the lawn or in the dining room. We took a morning boat ride across the river and saw crocodiles. storks, vultures, different kingfishers, lapwings, herons and a tree full of monkeys. We originally thought it would provide a convenient stopover on the way to Agra, turns out it was my favourite place in Rajasthan and a place certainly not to be missed.
