The space
Hospitality comes to you in different styles! What more can you expect but being a part of age old history and culture and Shahi tehzeeb! In Balasinor when you are at the Garden Palace you’re sure to get bowled over by the undivided personal attention of this family. They take pains to ensure that each guest feels at home and is made comfortable! It will be a worthwhile experience being able to live and interact with this Royal family! What could be more memorable than a royal photograph with a Nawab who was crowned at the age of 11months! Or a begum whose culinary talent is well known! And you could actually spend some time chatting with them about the Royal repast! You can go to a five star hotel and get luxury but when you come here you live an experience! What better way to experience Gujarat and India than this!
