The obsolete charm of a maharajh palace from 1937 Some very large and well decorated rooms A beautiful garden for relax A very good cuisine tasted in a beautiful decor A warm welcome from the princely family Shame that the price is a little overdone and that you charge the wi-fi more

We did not know of the riches that awaited us when our travel agent suggested we should visit/would like the Kanker area and whatever I write cannot do justice or describe adequately the wonderful days we spent there. Kanker Palace is now partly occupied by the current Maharaja and his extended family and is partly a hotel. It was built...

My wife and me reached Kanker Palace in the afternoon of 22nd October and were welcomed by Jolly and Jai, two amazing, genuine hosts you could ever come across. After freshening up, we met them again who took us around and explained about the property in detail. It's history and the way they keep it up is unbelievable, considering that...

A long weekend and we decided to go down south from Raipur. And Kanker heritage provides an option of an unique experience near Raipur. The main palace was closed for stay in monsoons and we stayed at the KP cottages, which are in the palace grounds. These cottages have a nice garden in front and seating. We spent a lot...

Our trip to Kanker was a fascinating experience. The whole family took us in and treated us like long lost friends. They are delightful people and they took great pleasure in answering our many questions and explaining how things work in rural India. We went to tribal villages and assisted at 2 melas accompanied by their trusted members of staff....

This is an actual palace of a Maharaja who can trace his family roots to the 11th century. This palace was built in the early 1900s, and is set on beautiful grounds, with gardens, a school, historical and artifacts. The common areas, including the library, the entrance room, and the dining room, are full of history, amid 20 foot ceilings,...

Thank you is but a small word and does not encompass even a fraction of the warmth and hospitality we experienced in Kanker and during our entire trip in the area around Kanker and all the way to some of the villages of Bastar. Each one of the family members of the royal family at Kanker went all out to...

3 hours south of Raipur lies the little kingdom of Kanker on the edge of Bastar where the best tribal arts are still fully individually hand-made in metal, wood, basketry, cloth, and by the lost wax method. Kanker Palace is situated in the former British commissioners mansion at the edge of town surrounded by gardens. Palace rooms are large and...

If you want to see the unchanged rural heart land of India, Kanker Palace is a must. Babu is an outstanding guide with deep cultural connections to the local Gond tribe. You will see villages, farmland, country markets and age old agricultural practices that are simply unbeatable and rival anything I have seen in the world. From oxen pulling stone...

If you are travelling to Chhattisgarh, do stop at Kanker to experience the hospitality, to understand the history of the region and get off the main circuit, a 'la royale' style.

“The room at the front, which is very large, light and airy and looks out onto the garden is our preference.”

“I personally prefer the room facing the lawn, in the main building.”

“WiFi iffy in rooms but reasonable on terraces. Palace rooms all interesting. I like front room with lots of windows but can be noisy.”

“If you have the budget, stay in the palace rooms or the annexe - these are more atmospheric.”
