(3.5/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Amazing architectural work. Great place to spend time mesmerizing the surrounding on a pleasant day. Avoid going in summers. But yea, if you are in Bhuj/Kutch, do pay a visit. It's worth it.

  • Well maintained palace. And quiet near to mandvi beach and shyamji krishna varma memorial.A good place for the tourists of Mandvi
  • Very Nice palace. I must recommend to tourists who love to travel and want to explore our great heritage and culture. If you want to travel Kutch, you should spend some good time to this beautiful place and beach also.
