The Darbaar Wada was the Fort’s most important building during Maharani Ahilyabai’s time. Here, on the first floor, were her living quarters. Below them were her offices and the Darbaar hall of audience. Today the first floor houses four princely category rooms.
A supremely different experience in every way…Heaven absolutely!Preeti & Rekhy (India), March 2022

Ahilya…always grateful for your kind, gentle hospitality.Nandini (India), April 2022
C'est un lieu unique au monde et vous y serez reçu comme des amis de la famille!Il est difficile de décrire le fort car chaque détail est beauté. Toutes les chambres sont des petits musées. Au milieu du fleuve il y a... le centre de l'Universe. C'est un peu une expérience irréelle mais tellement formidable qu'elle sera pour nous : inoubliable! Merci à tous.Mr and Mrs Picard (France), December 2018
This place has been absolutely incredible, the staff is amazing, the service was everything and this fortress is stunning. I wish all the staff members best of luck and may you be blessed with kindness you have shown me.Ms. Coffy (United States) June 2018.
To Ahilya Family thanks for a wonderful stay filled with tons of love and warmth. Hospitality is at its best. Came back after 5 years I didn’t realize I missed this place so much in the last few years. It’s like falling in love all over again. Thanks for everything.Mr. & Mrs. Sharma (India), March 2018
What a wonderful treat and treasure! Thank you for your gracious and warm hospitality in a place of such history and the legacy of a Queen. We are very grateful for the experience.Mrs Clinton (United States), March 2018
Convivial, luxurious and in a very good way, slightly eccentric, there is so much that is simply "right" about this lovely hotel. Drifting down the Narmada on one of the hotel boats, watching the sun set and with the distant sound of the temple drums, it is hard to imagine a more exotic place!Robert & Wendy (United Kingdom), May 2018
Ahilya Fort is a real gem - hidden India. All the staff was very helpful and friendly Kunta and Garva took great care of us. Food good(not over spicy for us) and our room Imli, looking the river was very comfortable. We appreciate no TV & phone. A real hide a way for us.Richard & Jan (Australia), September 2017
Il existe à travers le monde quelques diamants cachés, connus seulement par une poignée d’initiés. Ahilya Fort, dans son écrise de Maheshwar, est ce joyau, un kaleidoscope de l’Inde éternelle, de l’Inde millenaire. Pur comme la Narmada, immutable et protégé des soubresants du temps. Un grand respect pour Richard Holkar, un Prince.Eric Drouhet (France), December 2013
Quiet, Serene, Quaint!!! A magical place to contemplate and discover hidden gems of art & architecture. Kudos to REHWA for keeping our heritage alive. Feels like home because of Koonta Bai and her team. Will be back.Supriya and Nandani (India), September 2017
Every detail and aspect of our stay was planned to perfection in order to create a most magical experience in what feels like the most luxury and beautiful home-away-from-home. Thank you again for your hospitality and kindness.Bella (United Kingdom), November 2018
We had the loveliest visit here at the Fort. We so enjoyed the company, the meals, the activities and the tent too. I loved speaking french with guests. The meals were superb! Well done on the homemade jams and jellies. We hope to return with my husband and other son.Mrs. Rhys (France), January 2018
It is been such a magical experience staying at Ahilya Fort. We had such a wonderful time staying at the hotel and working with local weavers. Thank you for your incredible hospitality we are looking forward to returning soon!Ashton & Devon (United Kingdom), April 2018
