Ahilya Fort experience
A stay at Ahilya Fort (90 kms from Indore) is an experience straight out of the 18th century. Situated high above the banks of the sacred Narmada River, Ahilya Fort was the capital of one of India's celebrated women rulers-Ahilya Bai Holkar. Her fortress has been converted into a guest residence of discrete charm, where guests can appreciate surroundings, which have not changed since Ahilya Bai
Host at Ahilya Fort is Prince Shivaji Rao Holkar, son of the last Maharajah of Indore. The Prince ensures that the pace of life at Ahilya Fort is leisurely, in keeping with his wish to offer his guests an oasis of calm and repose. He is a reputed chef and gourmet; author of a book of recipes from the Maharajah's palaces, he personally oversees the kitchen.
Riverside heritage ambience of the area is captivating and coupled with overall experience, Ahilya Fort may be a tad expensive but still is compelling for heritage hotel aficionados.
