"History is the record of an encounter between character and circumstance... the encounter between character and circumstance is essentially a story."
The Hotel is a part of the original haveli of the Thakurs of Diggi, and is nestled amidst 18 acres of a cluster of havelis, structures and gardens owned by the family. The family also resides in the main part of the haveli and takes active part in the upkeep and administration of the hotel, thereby ensuring that the guest does not only enjoy the relaxing ambience and peaceful environs but also the warmth and homely atmosphere provided by the family.
The fašade / architecture is typical rajput from the prevailing period. All efforts have been made to preserve the identity of the havelis and its environs. The Grand Durbar Hall is an eyewitness to the art and fresco work prevalent during that period. The existing part of the palace underwent a careful and conscious conversion in 1990 when the present generation opened 'The Zenana Deodi', once the exclusive ladies section, to cater to guests from world over, creating an oasis of peace in a land steeped with heritage, picturesque with exquisite architecture, in a city vibrant with heroic memories and romance.
As soon as the guest enters the Main Pol (Gate) he is greeted with lush green gardens harbouring complete peace and tranquility. The palace has a sprawling lawn area with a hugh collection of flora and fauna. The chirping of house sparrows and cardinals wake you up as the sun filters through the trees. Peacocks dance in the garden as Eagles sour high up in the sky with the unmistakable neighing of horses in the stables. Partridges & Hens clucking at the break of dawn, is a wholesome experience in itself.
