With the growing popularity of destination weddings, the Lukshmi Villas Palace is indeed the perfect place to make any bride’s fairy tale come true. It is one of the most famous historic monuments of Vadodara, Gujarat. Built three centuries ago, in 1890 by Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III, the architecturally extravagant structure of the Indo-Saracenic school, is a visual masterpiece.
An expanse of luxury
The palace property is spread over 650 acres. As history records, it is reported to be the largest private dwelling built to date and is said to be four times the size of Buckingham Palace. The architect blueprinted a monument which even more than 100 years ago boasted modern amenities like elevators. Today, the Royal Family resides in the private areas of the palace, while the public sections are open to all those who wish to witness slices of regality.
Its ornate Darbar Hall, which is sometimes the venue of music concerts and other cultural events, has a Venetian mosaic floor, Belgium stained glass windows and walls with intricate mosaic decorations. The courtyard has several water fountains that create their own symphony amidst nature.
Several locations are offered for weddings celebrations at the Lukshmi Villas Palace. The recently restored Ladies Durbar Hall where the Maharanis conducted formal functions and affairs of state has been made available for indoor banquets and ceremonies. Equipped with the latest of amenities, the resplendent wing combines the best of the classic and the modern. It transports you back into a past coloured with magic that made fantasies real, even as it creates an experience to be cherished for a lifetime.
If one is looking for an outdoor extravaganza, the natural choice would be the sunken gardens, which were originally landscaped by the London Garden of the Kew team. This location is not only nestled between a lush golf course but also overlooks the grand facade of the Lukshmi Villas Palace, one of the most exclusive and grand private residences in the world! Other lawns overlooking different aspects of the palace are also available.
The exclusive effect:
The whole royal experience of hosting a celebration at the Lukshmi Villas Palace estate is one that is grand and yet exclusive as the palace is still very much a private residence and not run as a hotel. As it is not available for casual and public entertaining, the grandeur of this architectural jewel always elicits an element of thrill and surprise from Indian and International visitors alike.
To enhance the regal quotient of the experience, the palace staff has been trained by a team of hospitality experts while also incorporating the palace’s royal traditions of hospitality. The experience is enhanced by introducing our traditional ceremonial elements of musicians playing classical music in traditional attire, a tradition carried over centuries for the maharajas. The outstanding palace lighting, projecting the exquisite carving and flourish on stone is one of the highlights of the experience and a must do for the outdoor festivities,
Make your new beginning in regal splendour. Feel like a royal as you take your vows. And relive the magic forever!
