From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:You're given a royal welcome at the Nadesar Palace with garlands and a delicious thandai drink. It's a greeting befitting the magnificently porticoed, pillared, and verandaed Nadesar, built for the East India Company in the eighteenth century. The four guest rooms and six suites are extravagantly sized, with high ceilings and luxurious bathrooms, each with a claw-foot tub and marble seating in the walk-in shower. The subtly woven fabrics chosen for the refurbishment unfortunately tend (with exceptions) to muddy shades that create a more glum ambience than one would like in one's bedchamber. However, the handsome architecture overcomes all with the assistance of impeccable service; terrace dining by the pool, where you are serenaded by Indian classical musicians in the evening; and the 40 acres of grounds. A golf course and decorative lake are being added to the mango orchard, jasmine and vegetable fields, and beds of marigolds and roses.2009 Hot List
