You know you’re in a royal bedroom – twin images of Surya the Sun God beam down at you from the Burma teak ceiling, festooned with an intricately carved grid in a resplendent blue. Below, the tone of the place is restrained yet undoubtedly regal. Hunker down in Maharaja Ganga Singh Ji’s brass canopied four-poster bed. Write on his escritoire. Listen to his gramophone, hang your jacket on his coatrack, use his old-school telephone and take your seat in a cosy heirloom jhoola (swing) which still has on its original silk upholstery.
A sumptuously appointed place with a TV armoire, a writing desk, a canopied four poster bed, a card table and a dining table, sofas, ottomans and pouffes and a pair of bronze horses that are offered freshly mown fescue from the palace lawns daily. The suite comes with its own dressing room and a generously proportioned bathroom. Small decorative accents, put in when the palace was built in 1904 imbue it with character. A brilliant metal door fastener fashioned in the shape of interlocked fists renders the suite impregnable even today.
Situated on the second floor, this intimate suite offers unparalleled privacy and stellar views of the Lalgarh Palace complex. The suite features bolstered seating on its alcoves, usta art on glasswork and on marble, our signature old-world furniture and a generously sized bath. It looks out on to a covered marble verandah, with two mid-level terraces flanking it. The entire area is cordoned off for bridal parties, serving as a romantic, spacious, semi-detached enclosure, remote from the bustle of our ground floor.
