Guest Testimonial

The intention of the India trip was to catch-up with some rest and to see some of the more beautiful sights. Some travelling with lots of rest in-between. The itinerary perfectly matched our needs!! A big thanks for putting it together and with little input getting the balance right.

- GM, Essex



The former residence of Lord Kitchener, rebuilt to a new magnificence, Wildflower Hall recreates the grand style of the colonial era. Wood paneling and original artwork create an aura of old world charm amidst astonishing landscapes - which make for stunning views from the hotel's elevated location.

Teak wood floors, hand knotted rugs and rich furnishings complemented by spectacular views make the rooms very special retreats. Rich furnishings reflect the colonial heritage of the hotel and respect the traditional skills of local craftsmen, whilst every room has a spacious marble bathroom with a bathtub and separate shower.

This hotel is a member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World' and part of the prestigious Oberoi group - facts which are reflected in the service as well as the wonderful interiors.
