Riverside Palace - Gonda

Riverside Palace - Gondal: Built in the 1800s as the residence of the Yuvraj (Indian equivalent of a crown prince) of Gondal princely state, the Riverside Palace is now a heritage hotel owned and run by his descendants. The riverside palace is located at the edge of the Gondali River; built in colonial style of architecture, amidst a garden with huge trees. It has huge high-ceilinged rooms with period furniture, marvellously appointed sitting arrnagements, and a view of the river from the rooftop.
The living room is decorated in European taste, while the Indian room has brassware, beadwork and paintings in typical Indian style. The series of galleries and terraces of the palace building bring nature close to the visitors of this heritage hotel.
