Shivavilas was supposed to be next to Hampi, but in fact it took us one hour and a half to get there from Hampi with a private chauffeur in a dark unpleasant road. The huge property is impressive , as well as the rooms and furniture. The food served for dinner was under average.

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
