Explore luxurious sandstone pavilions and dip into the water of a royal beach at Vijay Vilas Palace, a huge Indo-European style complex serving as the former summer palace of the rulers of Kutch. Spanning 182 ha (450 ac), the sea-beach resort features exquisite late colonial architecture and a privately owned beach. Built between 1920 and 1929, the complex was designed as a royal guest camp, with tent accommodation on the beach. Admire the palace's elaborate, British-style wooden furniture and European interiors as you explore. The golden-sand beach offers a thatched restaurant with sweeping views of the ocean and a volleyball court. You can also arrange camel rides along the beach and boat tours.

  • Very beautiful palace and very well maintained, have some historical arts and sculpture stored inside. It’s carving on walls are so beautiful. Best part about this palace is its roof where you can just sit and enjoy the surrounding. The wind on top is so beautiful that you won’t feel to come down. And yes they charge every fee 50₹ per person and above that if you want to use your mobile phone inside than again u have to pay 25₹ per person/mobile, 50₹ for any still camera. But if you are Photograoher than it’s worth paying for those photos you will get from top (check few photos I clicked in phone)
  • Very nice place to visit. In any season you get fun here this place its awesome. Heritage building but still looks beautiful. View from top is good as always
  • Worth a look if you are in the area. Gets busy so maybe go early. Some interesting pix on the walls.
  • Must say- Delightful service. Awesome staff, goes out of way to help you. I stayed for a day and it was an experience which has gone in my memories forever.
  • The palace is so serene... The atmosphere around... The construction.. Everything! Also there are guides who would enthusiastically give you information about every minute details!
