A stay at Ahilya Fort is an experience straight out of the 18th century. Situated high above the banks of the sacred Narmada River, Ahilya Fort was the capital of one of India's celebrated women rulers-Ahilya Bai Holkar. Her fortress has been converted into a guest residence of discrete charm, where guests can appreciate surroundings, which have not changed since Ahilya Bai ruled Indore State from 1760-1795.
Your host at Ahilya Fort is Prince Shivaji Rao Holkar, son of the last Maharajah of Indore. The Prince ensures that the pace of life at Ahilya Fort is leisurely, in keeping with his wish to offer his guests an oasis of calm and repose.
Ahilya Fort has one two bedroom suite, eight double rooms, each with private attached bathroom, and two splendid tents. The tents have their own unique en-suite bathrooms. Every comfort is assured with modern baths and comfortable beds with mosquito nets, yet the traditional simplicity of this 18th century royal dwelling is preserved.
Breakfast buffet is served on the ramparts of the fort, which command a spectacular view over the kilometer-wide Narmada River, a view unchanged from that which Ahilya herself looked out over, more than two hundred years ago.
Dinner is either outdoor under the grand neem trees, on one of the terraces overlooking the river, or in the Chamber of Winds, overlooking the Narmada River and can be lightly spiced Indian cuisine, or a more substantial royal “thali” dinner.
You will remember your stay at this amazing, magical royal dwelling for the rest of your life.
