Royal Orchid Metropole is a grand heritage hotel spread over 2.5 acres of land and is a perfect fusion of old-world charm, modern-elegant designs, imperial arches, impressive pillars, and flamboyant corridors built by the former Maharaja of Mysore in 1920.
A 3-hour drive from Bangalore, the hotel is close to Mysuru Palace and a 20-minute drive from Brindavan Gardens. The hotel is preferred by visitors who wish to explore Srirangapatana, the Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, Somanathapura Temple, Chamundi Hills, and wildlife parks of Karnataka.
A heritage luxury hotel celebrating its 100th year in 2020, the Royal Orchid Mysuru offers the finest 'stay and dine' heritage experience in Mysuru. Build by the Wadiyar dynasty as a guest house for the Maharaja's elite British guests, the legacy property features 30 grand suites and luxurious rooms with private balconies, all of which are glamorous and nostalgic. The #1 choice amongst tourists seeking luxury accommodation and warm Indian hospitality in the heart of Mysuru, the hotel features an open-air courtyard barbeque restaurant- Shikari, a vintage bar - Skand'el, and the city's most popular Indian restaurant - Tiger Trail, known for its tagline 'The Last Word in Indian Food'.

A 350 sq. Ft. (32 sq. Mt.) These pleasantly decorated rooms have a dine-in area, and LED TV and offer a view of the courtyard and lawn.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
