Set on the banks of India’s most sacred river, Brijrama Palace is one of Varanasi’ oldest landmarks. Built in 1812, it was originally designed to serve as a fort. Today, it’s location on the Ganges gives guests a perfect platform from which to witness the daily life and spirituality of the city. Wander out of the hotel and you’re just moments from the famous Dashashwamedh ghat, where the Ganges aarti takes place every evening, and the Kashi Vishwanath Temple.

Each of the hotel’s 32 spacious rooms combine world-class comforts with touches of the Maratha architectural style to recreate the atmosphere of a bygone era. As well as gilded frescoes and fine silks, superior rooms also feature a classic slipper bath with river views. Dining at the Brijrama Palace is an indulgent experience, starting with breakfast on the open-air terrace overlooking the Ganges through to the exquisitely crafted cuisine in the hotel restaurant. The Brijrama Palace also offers a private riverboat dining experience. To unwind, the hotel provides complimentary yoga sessions, a well-stocked library and live classical music performances.
