Royal Getaway

The Gogunda Palace hotel is located in the quiet village of Gogunda, about an hour from Udaipur airport. Maharana Pratap Singh was crowned in this palace in 1572, and he made Gogunda the capital of Mewar until Udaipur was built. Now, after seven years of restoration, each of its 40 suites and rooms have been given a unique look. Spend a weekend in a luxurious room with stunning art for company, go kite-flying on the terrace, and spend evenings with folk music in the gardens. Check out the signature Raaj Tilak Suite, located in the rooms where the maharana was coronated, decorated with stone and marble, ornate woodwork and intricate murals.—ND
