Ahilya Fort is an 18th century fortress converted into an award-winning hotel which has what is possibly the most dramatic setting of any Indian hotel. Perched on the edge of a cliff, enclosed within the massive walls of the fort, there are staggering views over the sacred Narmada River and the ghats immediately below. Built in 1766 AD, the fort is a charming property that has retained its regal elegance. It has 8 double bedrooms, 1 suite and 2 tents, each with their own private bathroom. Within the fort there are pretty courtyards and verandahs on different levels, linked by stone walkways. There is a large garden, plenty of hidden terraces and turrets, and a swimming pool. The chef produces delicious continental and Indian food. There is no formal dining room as breakfast tends to be a buffet served on the ramparts of the fort, overlooking the river; lunch is served in a shady, leafy courtyard or on the patio and candlelit dinners are served in the garden by the pool or on the terrace. Ahilya Fort is an all inclusive hotel so all meals, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks and snacks are included.
