Taj Nadesar Palace -

Cost Per Night
Perfect For

Couples & Families

First built and used by the East India Company in the late 1800s, and later renovated and acquired by the Maharaja Prabhu Narain Singh of Benares, Taj Nadesar Palace has had a colourful history.

Today the Palace is owned by the Taj hotel brand and has carefully been restored to its former glory as one of the most exclusive properties in Varanasi.

With only 10 rooms in total, Taj Nadesar Palace is a small boutique hotel nestled into a mango orchard and surrounded by jasmine fields within the larger complex of the Taj Ganges Hotel. This means that guests have access to all their worldly desires, while still retaining privacy and tranquillity.

Over the centuries Nadesar Palace has played host to a range of famous guests, including members of the royal family back when India was a colony.

Today the boutique property still attracts guests looking to experience the holy city in style, and as a place to escape the hectic city noise and relax into solitude.

Nadesar Palace is located just outside Varanasi and offers easy access to the old city, Ramnagar Fort, Kashi Vishwanath temple and the 20,000 other temples scatter near the mighty Ganges.

The Palace sits next to a tributary of the Ganges and is the perfect place to explore the historical and spiritual region of Uttar Pradesh.

The property

As one would expect from a former palace, the rooms and suites are elegant, refined and regal, with artwork and furniture once owned by Varanasi’s royal family. Of the 10 rooms, each is named after royal families that have visited the Palace in the past and the interiors of each room are also different to match the history. Plush four-poster beds with canopies, historical photographs on the walls and marble bathrooms complete with deep bathtubs all refine the rooms.

The four Palace rooms have beautiful views over the gardens and swimming pool, while the two Historical suites and two Royal suites have grand living rooms and a separate dressing room. Each room comes with access to a butler, and often hot baths adorned with rose petals are awaiting guests after a day of sightseeing. Meals can be served in the rooms or the large but intimate dining room at Nadesar Palace and can be ordered anytime. The Palace also has a small outdoor pool, yoga room and a spa with a menu of traditional treatments.


Facilities at Taj Nadesar Palace include an ouitdoor pool, a fitness room, an ayurveda centre and a restaurant and bar.


The Dining Area is an intimate room for guests only and serves Indian, local and international cuisine. The live BBQ is a poolside feast with an expert griller serving up a range of delights.

Why Wayfairer

Being one of India’s most renowned hotel chains, Taj Hotels understands the importance of contributing to the destinations and communities they are located. Their main focus is on CSR programs that build skills, entrepreneurship, preservation of traditional arts and crafts, and preservation and promotion of heritage monuments. They also have environmental programs which focus on resource efficiency and biodiversity and have recently refined their EARTH (Environment Awareness and Renewal at Taj Hotels) vision.
