The Chanoud Garh is a 200,000 sq. ft. palace located in the remote countryside by the village of the same name in Pali, India. A restored 300-year-old palace, the palace was once a stay for the Maharajah in his travels, and today it keeps the same preparedness in its rooms.

Seven richly furnished (and carefully renovated) suites await guests, each with its own history and personality. Meals are always a feast provided by the kitchens of the palace, all with utmost care for authenticity, without discounting the discerning royal tastes the Chanoud Garh was built for.
Marble-pillared corridors and beautiful lawns and courtyards keep up the atmosphere of peaceful royalty infused throughout the palace.
More than just a palace, though, Chanoud Garh is a home. Upon arrival, guests will meet their hosts, the family that owns and keeps the palace, down through 14 generations at the place.
During the day, guests are also welcome to visit the nearby village (by camel or jeep safari or on foot), and explore the saltpans and the Chanoud Lake. All these, of course, are accompanied by guides well-educated in the local history and life.
Chanoud Garh is the perfect example of a home-like stay in a place surrounded by age-old luxury and grandeur, far unlike your traditional hotel experience.
Chanoud Garh boasts seven unique suites, each with multiple rooms, such as an entry hall and dressing room. The Chanoud Garh was renovated to include unobtrusive modern amenities, such as air-conditioning, refrigerator and Internet access – all without detracting from its majestic, age-old grandeur. Each suite has its own purpose, history and personality, as befits such a splendid building.
As with any palace, the Chanoud offers courtyards with beautifully kept gardens where peacocks are free to wander, as well as lively parrots. The family also lives within the palace, in another wing of the building, and thus guests will have direct access to them. Beyond the palace, guests may explore the nearby village and interact directly with the locals, especially the children. Other possibilities include exploring Chanoud Lake and the nearby saltpans, while the safari is done either on camel or by jeep.
The Chanoud Garh offers free parking and Wi-Fi. Each suite has multiple rooms and offers air-conditioning and refrigerators. The hotel also includes meeting rooms and a restaurant.
The Chanoud Garh offers dining through the palace kitchens, which may be served in different locations of the palace, including the rooftop. The food is authentic Indian, prepared with locally sourced ingredients.
It isn’t just the hotel that is full of grandeur and dream-like experiences. The surrounding village offers a very new experience, as guests are able to directly interact with and converse with the local shepherding population. The Chanoud Garh has educational initiatives around the village and the palace, and the local population keep its owners in high regard.
