Situated in the sacred city of Varanasi, intersected by rivers thought to have originated from the body of the prehistoric being at the beginning of time, The Suryauday Haveli is as an expression of the essence of this sacred city. Built by the royal family of Nepal in the early 20th century as a sanctuary for their elderly, the Haveli has been meticulously restored.
Travel over the river to reach the secluded retreat, which has hidden pathways that lead to the renowned Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Ensuite rooms and suites boast large beds with intricate carved headboards, dark wood furnishings and pristine views of the river. Savour mouth-watering Banaras fare, featuring fine vegetarian cookery lovingly prepared in the traditional manner and enjoyed in one of the outdoor dining areas, which includes a central garden, a stately dining hall and a rooftop terrace.
What we love about Suryauday Haveli
- Listen to the legendary sitar players of Banaras as they lull you into a trance.
- Sample decadent paneers, infused with herbs, spices and curries that simple melt in your mouth.
- Marvel at the unparalleled sunset views from the rooftop terrace, from where you can watch the daily religious ritual of aarti.
