Brijraj Bhawan Palace Hotel is the current residence of the Maharao of Kotah and his family. The Royal family resides in one half of the building, while the other half has been turned into an exclusive hotel. It was opened as a hotel in 1964, and hence is one of the earliest heritage hotels. The Royal family personally looks after the running of the hotel, thus giving it a homely touch.
It is located on the banks of river Chambal and commands a magnificent view. Most of the rooms have a river view. Beautiful terrace gardens and plenty of trees and shrubs lure wide variety of birds, thus making it an ornithologistís paradise! One can sit on the terraced gardens and savour the breathtaking sunsets over the river or simply sit and observe the farmers and villagers on the opposite bank go about their daily chores.
Large oil paintings depicting historical events, elegant period furniture, an array of wildlife trophies from the past, and other commemorative memorabilia of the royal family adorn the Palace and evoke visions of past grandeur.
Away from the bustling thoroughfares of Kota (despite being very centrally located), the hotel affords peace, tranquility and privacy to its residents. Personal supervision of the royal pill family has ensured a successful blend of modern comforts in a royal yet relaxed homely setting for the esteemed guest.
