The Kathiwada Raaj Mahal in Madhya Pradesh is nestled amidst 120 acres of privately owned orchards. The mahal was commissioned by Rana Onkar Sinh as the erstwhile royal family’s hunting lodge in 1895. Surrounded by the Vindhya Hills, the 19th-century colonial style mansion makes for a striking picture framed by clear blue skies, mountain views and vast stretches of farmland.
Recently restored by Sangita Devi Kathiwada, the Mahal is the perfect embodiment of heritage meets contemporary. The eleven suites retain an old world charm and are inundated with hunting memorabilia, art deco furniture, precious books and family photographs that encapsulate the regal era gone by. The spacious rooms offer plush amenities and modern bathrooms, and the modern art that decorate the interiors of the mansion are a reminder of the present-day. The rooms open out on to verandas and terraces that offer a spectacular view of the picturesque countryside.
The potent energy field, no pollution and deep silence in Kathiwada makes it an ideal location for yoga and meditation retreats. The world class cricket ground built passionately by Digvijay Sinh Kathiwada has hosted international teams and continues to draw sport enthusiasts to this property. Guided treks in the nearby forest give an insight in to the indigenous trees, and visits to the village, pottery, farming and understanding the mud architecture are activities one can keep busy with.
The Kathiwada family consider themselves to be privileged custodians of the rich culture and heritage and invite like-minded individuals to come and enjoy a royal experience woven with tales of an era gone by. Ideal to be connected on a textile trail beginning at Bhopal via Maheshwar, Kathiwada and onwards to Baroda and Ahmedabad, Kathiwada is close to the craft centre of chota Udaipur and the heritage town of Champaner.
