A regal 19th-Century residence, the Jehan Numa Palace is a fusion of contemporary comfort and care.
Settled on the slope of the vibrant Shamla Hills is the majestic Jehan Numa Palace Hotel. The palace is an amalgamation of British Colonial, Italian Renaissance, and Classical Greek architecture. Fringed with hues of floral appeals such as Bougainvillea, Champa and more, this 5-star hotel in Bhopal lives up to its royal status, so much that it compelled a visitor to claim, ‘It is too intimate to be called a palace, too friendly to be called a ‘hotel’.
The Jehan Numa Palace – was built in 1890 during the rule of Nawab Sultan Jehan Begum, and named after her, by her second son General Obaidullah Khan, Commander-in-Chief of the erstwhile Bhopal state Force. His grandsons own the Palace, converted it into a world-class heritage hotel in 1983. Royal living, once the sole preserve of nawabs, is offered to guests generously and with courtesy.
A varied, luxuriant green drapes the building and the open spaces under a wide sky to create an enchanting visual treat. Arched walkways, collonaded verandahs and verdant lawns in intimate courtyards take you to equally charming rooms. Jehan Numa Palace blends with nature and it is only fitting that one of its wonderful restaurants sits under the shade of an enormous mango tree, as its name so eloquently states.
