Perched high above the sacred River Narmada, the Ahliya Fort is the legacy of India’s most famous female ruler, Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar who ruled from 1765 to 1796. Her descendant, Prince Richard Holkar, converted the imposing fort into a heritage hotel, which provides one of the most dramatic and unique settings in India. The 19 spacious guest rooms are spread between six buildings dating to the 18th century and set among three acres of courtyards, fountains, and gardens. Guests are treated to home cooked meals using freshly sourced ingredients from the hotel’s organic house garden and farm. Massage treatments can also be arranged through the hotel and the large outdoor pool works equally well for some vigorous laps or just wallowing about in.
