You are invited to experience a picture-perfect escape at WelcomHeritage Shivavilas Palace Sandur, a former king's palace set in the mining hub of Sandur, Karnataka. An hour from the state's famous heritage town, Hampi, and less than six hours from Bengaluru, this majestic property is now a heritage hotel offering a mesmerising dose of history, arts, culture and culinary fare – and easy access to the region's famous attractions.
The 22-acre site is home to just 12 luxurious rooms and suites, with each offering a trip back in time to the era of the Ghorpade rulers. 'See Sandur in September', declared Mahatma Gandhi when he landed in Karnataka during his travels in 1930, mesmerised by the beauty of this town. But this charming destination is equally gorgeous around the year and makes for a perfect escape from the cities with families and friends.
