The perfect place if you desire to live like royals for a few days, the reinstated Deo Bagh feels more like a regal sanctuary than a hotel. Each fragment is an example of outstanding architectural masterwork with the supplement of up-to-date indulgences. I call it ‘significant high-living’. With striking family temples and gazebos, stunning woodwork, opulent gardens and twirling peacocks, this is a piquant paradise you would want to discover every edge and corner of. And it’s more than just a pictorial experience. The milieux are outdone only by the marvellous hospitality of the excellent staff. The hotel also organises reserved tours of the Gwalior Fort and surrounds, which I would approvingly endorse if this is your first time in Gwalior.
