The Fort Ramgarh
Nestled in the foothills near Ramgarh, is a 300-year-old palace which is now converted into a heritage hotel - The Fort. Beautifully kept royal gardens along with the intricate architecture, this resort somewhat transports one back to the era of Maharajas and Maharanis. The resort offers indoor and outdoor catering with an indoor durbar hall capacity up to 250 guests and an outdoor lawn capacity of 350 along the poolside. The service is bang on and the food is delicious. The royal wedding theme is one of my personal favorites which include flower showers, entry of the groom on an elephant (just like the old Maharajas!) and special shehnai vadan. The only downside about this place is that they don't serve non-vegetarian food. If getting married like a king/queen is your dream then this resort should be your pick. The total cost for a wedding with 350 guests: 6.5 L- 8.5 lacs (approximately)
