Narendra Bhawan

Narendra Bhawan is a stunning, eclectic, 'design' hotel. Formerly owned by the last Maharaja of Bikaner (HH Narendra Singhji, 1948 - 2003) , the hotel's interiors play on his journey through life with different rooms and areas reflecting the different stages.

More of a 'design' hotel, it is replete with carefully sourced antiques and artefacts from around the world. Built of soft pink sandstone, the tall building surrounds a pretty inner courtyard, overlooked by airy corridors, and boasts a lovely rooftop pool, reminiscent of a Moroccan riad rooftop pool.

The 82 bedrooms are themed with some being contemporary, others more traditional and others more avant garde - there's one to suit all tastes! The public areas have a strong Art Deco theme and are all different and interesting - each has a story. The outdoor/indoor arrival verandah is a wonderfully relaxed, airy space and it leads into an equally stunning inner verandah which is replete with yet more interesting artefacts and a bright red baby grand piano! It's all eye-catching with motifs and design elements creating the feel of a vibrant, bygone age whilst juxtaposed with modern Indian furniture, Portuguese tiles and tribal artworks.
