Your journey begins in the cosmopolitan city of Mumbai – commercial, financial and trade capital of the country. Then you will fly to Aurangabad and visit the superb caves at Ajanta and Ellora. We visit India’s wine growing region, Nasik. Stay at Sula Beyond – India’s first vineyard resort. At the end we stay at central India’s incredible fort Ahilya. “What’s that sound?â€ you think to yourself as you hear the chanting upon entering Ahilya Fort. As you step out onto the balcony of your room, it grows clearer. It’s one of the gardeners intoning, “Ram Sita Ramâ€¦Ram Sita Ramâ€¦â€, a chant that continues to be in the background during your stay at this beautiful heritage resort.
You sink into well-cushioned sofas on shady verandahs; sit up in battlements to watch river life unfolding below you; take boat trips at sunset, cocktail in hand; and dine outside under neem trees or on one of the many terraces. Perched above the sacred Narmada River, 250-year-old Ahilya Fort is a fascinating, romantic haven set in a little explored part of India. There's a royal touch, too: this is the home of Prince Shivaji Rao Holkar, son of the last Maharajah of Indore. He acts as host and chef for up to 22 guests who stay in wonderfully appointed rooms or magnificent tents. The surrounding area offers the deserted city of Mandu and the island temple of Omkareshwar, while in Maheshwar, are some of the country's most beautiful ghats, as well as the famous weaving workshops which produce fabulous textiles - sponsored by the Holkar family.Hotel Details
