Maharaja's Palace, Chail

1.3
#4 of 6 in Things to do in Chail
Maharaja's Palace, a graceful royal mansion, welcomes visitors who wish to stay overnight, or simply enjoy its surroundings. After his expulsion from Shimla (the British India summer capital) in 1891, the Maharaja of Patiala discovered the thick deodar forest hill of Chail, and used it as the site for his private summer escape. Enjoy quite walks through orchards, forests, and lawns, then find the badminton field, billiard tables, or children’s park for some more active fun. You can rent a log hut or cottage to sleep in royal suites with antique furniture, fireplaces, and ornate carpets lining the walls. The onsite restaurant serves local, traditional food.

Where to stay in Chail

The choices at Chail remain fairly spread out along the roads that lead to the north, south, and west. The larger resorts and more luxurious hotels tend to be a little farther away from the main center, in areas offering more space and rooms with commanding views of the forested valleys and hills. Look close to the center of town for simple hotels and guesthouses, ideal for budget-conscious travelers.
