Bundelkhand Riverside is built on 50 Acres of land on the banks of the
River Betwa in Orchha and the Old House, which still exists, was used as
a Hunting Lodge cum Guest House. The present retreat is an addition to
the old construction that dates back to 1895.
The Bundelkhand Riverside
consists of 29 Bedrooms, 17 of which are river facing.
The Guest Rooms are large (22 Ft by 20 Ft) with attached bathrooms and
All Bathrooms (8 Ft by 10 Ft) have a Bidet in them. The Fire Places can be
lit in the winter months between November and February. All rooms have
an air conditioner and phone facility.
The furniture has been hand
crafted on the site where carpenters worked for 7 years and the style is
Indian and British Colonial.
The Hotel has extensive wooden and stone crafts of India, which are now no
longer used in the building industry. It also has extensive use of
Ceramic Tiles as they were used in the Medieval Period. (Only 2 Rajput
Forts in India have used tiles in Medieval Times and these are the Forts
of Gwalior and Orchha - Datia.) The Retreat has a Four Terrace Mughal
Garden that can be used for private functions, weddings, conferences and
Full Moon nights at the
Riverside are divine as a guest can sit out in the Verandahs and hear
and see the River flowing past.
The retreat site is abundant with monuments that are 400 years old in
various states of ruins.
