The hotel is not in a very touristy place - other than the ancient Kumaraswamy temple, there is hardly anything to do in Sandur. In house, the vintage car museum is more like a garage, there is a small pool to keep you cool; you can cycle around a bit or play darts in an activity room. But thats just about it!

So what made the stay memorable / worthwhile - indubitably the service. Mr Sameer & his team personalize the experience to an extent you start feeling 'at home'. Be it humoring a kids wishes for doughnuts ( at night ) or helping with the day's itinerary, arranging a spa appointment in a different hotel...there is no wish that these genies cannot fulfil!

The room we stayed in was quite atmospheric. Breakfast, however was pretty modest but still tasteful...

An absolute must do in my opinion...best wishes to the team!

The hotel is a heritage property that feels quaint and charming, very lovely for a 5 star hotel stay. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you have a good stay, we had a great time there for my parents anniversary for which they gave us a cake and decorated the room on their own accord!

We chose Shivavilas Palace in Sandur for our trip to Hampi. Although the drive to Hampi took us almost 50 minutes one way, we don't regret choosing this beautiful palace turned hotel. The room we occupied was well decorated with everything needed for a good comfortable stay. The room was clean and the bathroom with its lovely high ceiling and natural lighting was something we particularly liked. The attached sitout was another attraction. The service was quite good,the staff courteous and prompt. The hotel is located in a quiet part of the town. Food, too, was good.
This was a trip we took in times of a pandemic hence, we had to choose a hotel with a lot thought. As guests it made us feel comfortable when we saw the staff in masks. In such times that's the need of the hour. Our stay was excellent and we would definitely return again. Sandur and Shivavilas Palace took our heart. A special mention of Biswajit, Sameer and Joseph along with another staff at the reception whose name I am not too sure of.

We were made to feel very special in this former royal residence. The hotel is full of mementoes from the past- a library of old books, cabinets full of ornaments, a billiard room full of stuffed trophies. The food was excellent and served either in the restaurant, the beautiful inner courtyard or outside. We were lucky enough to eat in the gardens by the stunning pool, the meal accompanied by traditional music. The trip to Hampi took 40 mins each way but the quality of the hotel more than justified the daily trips in. After the bustle and dust of the ancient city, returning to the peace and quiet of Shivavilas Palace - and especially the big bathroom- was a joy. Hampi is magical, do make sure you do the walk along the river and also visit the Hanuman Temple slightly outside Hampi. The climb of 570 steps is worth it to see the amazing 360 view of paddy fields and boulders. Breath taking in so many ways ! Top marks for this hotel and all its wonderful staff. Do not miss the opportunity of staying here.

The palace looks grand when you enter. Located in Sandur amidst valleys and hills. The rooms are huge with a very big bathroom. Palace style furniture makes room quite comfortable. Food options are limited but taste is great. Staff is very helpful. Amenities wise it is less. Swimming pool is fine. But indoor games room has most of the stuff broken. Cleanliness could be a bit more in the games room and first floor balcony. They have bicycles and badminton rackets, billiards table to keep you occupied. There is a library as well. However the place is 40 km away from Hampi and it takes 1.5 hours to get there. Plus the road from Sandur to Hampi has multiple speed breakers and trucks and hence night driving is not advisable at all. All in all good place for a couple looking for spending quiet time or a big group of friends. It will be a unique experience.

The closest airport is Vidyanagar (VDY) which has direct flights from Hyderabad and Bangalore by TruJet. The airport is about 30 mins from the Shivavilas Palace. The hotel can book transport to the airport and also to Hampi (which is about 1 hour away from the hotel). Alternately, there are many travel agents that can arrange a car for the full time that you are in Sandur/Hampi

Hi Preeti, they serve it anytime you want: they offer a very personalized service. They usually ask you for every meal when and what you would like. Enjoy yr stay!
