Narendra Bhawan: Royalty meets Humility in an Extraordinary way

Narendra Bhawan, Bikaner, Rajasthan — a beautiful property that offers every guest utmost personalised luxury and treats them like a royal guest, and well, Royalty decide their own schedule! Why did I say that? Because there are no set rules here. You can have your breakfast when you want. Haven’t you heard that phrase? When in Rajasthan’s royal city, do it as the royals do!

The last reigning Maharaja of Bikaner, His Highness Narendra Singhji’s residence in Bikaner is now converted into a luxurious five-star hotel called Narendra Bhawan. And you don’t need to visit this property, you need to experience this beautiful haveli.

There’s only a single element that the traveller within us seeks in today’s times – unique experiences. And that’s what FABgetaways ensures — Check out our all-inclusive dining experience at Narendra Bhawan, Bikaner, where you would find an oasis of delightful experiences at every step throughout our stay.

This is how you can add charm and mystic to some of the curated experiences at Narendra Bhawan:

Blindfold Meal in a Private Dining Room at Pearls & Chiffons:

Quite an interesting concept where the guests need to first touch, feel, smell the 5-course meal and then eat the food. Don’t worry! You are free to talk with other guests but the servers won’t speak a word! Let your senses take over and guess what you put in your stomach.

Writers Menu Meal:

An experience where each dish is announced poetically by reading a paragraph from a book from where it is inspired from. This ‘literary lunch’ have dishes inspired by famous books! You actually get to read a booklet that has the relevant content about the dish and later you get to taste their interpretation of the dish both for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. This too is quite an experience — you eat what you read!

Museum dinner at Lakshmi Niwas Palace:

An incredible experience in itself. Why? Because it was where King Ganga Singh would receive his guests back in the day. The walls of this room have gold engravings to the tune of about 50 kg. The menu served is adapted from a royal menu!

Sundowner at the Pastures:

A beauty to behold. You get to sit by the lake for sundowner followed by the dinner. As it starts to get darker, tiny lanterns, shimmering candles and millions of stars will make your evening mesmerising. Ratadi Talai Sundowner, a curated experience in the middle of nowhere. There’s a musician playing soulful ragas on his flute, some sand dunes forming the backdrop of white tents and a lake reflecting the stars. As the night progresses, a bonfire and some wine could also be arranged to keep you warm.
(Charges: INR 5500 per person, inclusive of snacks. Transportation charges extra and drinks as per actual rate)

The Crescent Grill and Dinner:

Indulge in a gastronomical meal by the pool. The rooftop poolside with Arabian nights setting is a perfect venue for an evening that includes delicious dinner, light dance and soft music.
(Charges: INR 4500 per person. Drinks as per actual rate)

Laxmi Niwas Palace View Dinner at the lawns:

Just like Narendra Bhawan offers an oasis (perfect for sunset), don’t forget the lush green lawns of Laxmi Niwas Palace which are perfect for a dinner on a moonlit night. Have your meal while the majestic palace stands in front of you. Two lovely lotus ponds surround the table with an array of candlelit lamps on a bed of rose petals.
