In the quiet environment of Sandur, the palace stands testimony to the unhurried era of royalty and presents a window to the luxury of a different class. In the heat it turned into the perfect site for a staycation, particularly as the hotel was practically empty and we got the space to ourselves. The staff is very courteous and though sometimes they are edgy around Hindi and English there is nothing that cannot be managed. The only letdown for us was that being the only guests around, we had to do with the set food menu with limited average fare (the good meal package at the time of booking made up for it). The complimentary minibar items and toiletries were great.
Overall a great place for a get together as well as a solitary break away from the crowds.
Best Time to Visit
Will definitely be winter. However, September is the best time if visiting to see the flowers.
What to see around
The most important attractions are:
1. The world heritage site of Hampi
2. The ancient Kumarswamy Temple
