Following a dam building project in Rajasthan, a few of the team members traveled south, staying in tiger preserve resort and government-run hotel, but nothing could have prepared us for what we'd experience when we entered the grounds of this majestic home... the home of the current Maharaja. Raja Yogeshwar Raj Singh welcomed us personally to his home. He joined us at meals, shared the history of his family and entertained us in Durbar Hall where once dignitaries were welcomed. The State dining room has a grand table seating 26 comfortably! Then our sleeping quarters - each one a huge suite with period furnishings and high ceilings, REALLY high ceilings, helpful in keeping it cool in the heat of summer months. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the staff is exceptional. Following a birthday dinner, "Yoge" as he asked us to call him, arranged for a phenomenal dance group to entertain us. Who could ask for more! I will definitely return.

If you are anywhere near Chhattisgarh, go out of your way to stay at Palace Kawarda. We spent three great days as guests in this extraordinary house of spacious verandas, large rooms, tasteful local decor and so many momentos of its rich history -- we felt transported to a more genteel time. Our hosts, the Maharaja and Maharani, were very gracious, generous and attentive. As soon as we showed up they reviewed our plans and made suggestions and arrangements to help us fulfill our intentions. We joined them and their son at their family table for every meal where the food was abundant and delicious and the conversation even more so. On our final day, our host even took us along as he visited rural villages at the start of his political campaign. A truly unique, comfortable, interesting and very enjoyable experience.

What a pleasure to come again to the Palace! The royal family stays the same, friendly, warm and informative. We had nice talk altogether and the stay was enlightened by the festivities of Dussehra. We could follow them among the Maharajah, the Maharani and their family. An inside regard and not the impression to be a tourist. A place to go if you wish to experience a less common India

We feel our Indian trip would not have been complete without seeing the true rural life in India and staying at Palace Kawardha gave us this opportunity in a lovely setting. The warmth of our hosts made us feel welcome. Our room was amazing and made you feel like you were in a palace. The food has been exceptional and I even got to try my first mutton curry. We have loved our stay here and would whole heartedly recommend it, especially those who want to get off the tourist track.

Our family of three adults stayed in two separate large suites at the Palace Kawardha. The rooms were comfortable and equipped as one would expect for a 20th century colonial Palace. The public areas and marbled verandahs of the Palace were impressive and cool drinks served by the Palace staff after a day of sightseeing were a pleasure. Maharaja Yogeshwar Raj Singh and his wife had dinner with us each night and regaled us with stories about the Palace, their families, the sights in the area and Indian politics. The Maharaja also provided cocktails around a campfire in the garden one evening and arranged for a local dance troop to perform in the Palace courtyard on another evening. Near the Palace are the 10th century Bhoramdeo Temple, dedicated to Shiva and known for Khajuraho type carvings, and local markets and rural villages which give ample opportunity to observe and photograph the fascinating Baiga tribe, which is noted for the intricate tattooing of women's faces, arms, legs, etc. The local people are friendly and inviting and welcome visitors who want to learn about traditional rural Indian and tribal life. The area around the Palace is well worth a few days of sightseeing and the Palace Kawardha is the place to stay and unwind after this sightseeing.
