The charming luxury boutique hotel – Narendra Bhawan was once the modest residence of the last reigning Maharaja of Bikaner – His Highness Maharaja Narendra Singh . The MRS Group has a done a brilliant job of redesigning and rebuilding the original residence.
The quirky interiors are inspired by the life and travels of the Late Maharaja . The exquisite 80 plus rooms are a depiction of the different phases of the Maharaja’s life. The vibrant interiors and the eye to detail given is just immaculate. We loved the use of Portuguese tiles and terrazzo flooring. Every nook and cranny of Narendra Bhawan is tastefully decorated with memorable artefacts , some of which have been specifically created for Narendra Bhawan. The Bright red Piano with lyrics of Edith calligraphed on it deserves a special mention.
The grandiose welcome complete with a man playing the Bugle as you enter, makes you feel like royalty themselves. The Locally made Bela Sherbet (Jasmine cordial with lemon) is a very unique and delicious welcome drink.
Pearls and Chiffon is their elegant yet vintage feel restaurant that serves the most sumptuos food. They are happy to serve you in the courtyard , or by the infinity pool or the bar if you prefer being outdoors.The flavoursome dishes will blow you away. The Banarsi Chaat platter was very appetising and truly one-of-a-kind.
The Bar situated outside the main complex has been fondly named “The Gaushala” to commemorate Maharaja Narendra Singh’s love for animals. It is also the perfect vantage point to view the beautifully lit up Narendra Bhavan at night .
One walk to Spa will convince you to unwind right away. The soothing interiors and music coupled with their well qualified therapist will leave you fully rejuvenated. They also offer Dr. Bachs flower remedy complimentary along with each spa session based on your choice. They even have the latest Bemer Spa bed which transmits magnetic goodness throughout your body.
The Infinity pool on the rooftop gives a birds eye view of the city of Bikaner.
The staff are very friendly and willing to go out of the way to make your stay memorable.
The Hotel concierge have curated very interesting experiences to keep the guests occupied, including some exploration trails as well as exquisite sundowners.
This unconventional and alluring residence of the erstwhile Maharaja is an absolute delight for vacationers.
