We recently enjoyed the winter package offer of 2 nights stay in Deluxe rooms in Shiva Vilas palace hotel at Sandur. The place is a little remote and about 300 kms from Bangalore and 442 kms from Hyderabad. The National highway and state road up to Bellary are good.The mining company trucks have raped and wrecked the 20 kms stretch of road between Torangallu and Sandur. It is advisable to take Bellary- Hospet -Sandur road, which is 30 kms longer but in better condition. If the access roads get better, this palace hotel is a luxurious and peaceful getaway. The 3 suites and 9 Deluxe rooms are large and well appointed with private sit outs and modern comforts. Swimming pool is clean and large lawns are good for private parties. Spa facility can be enjoyed with one day prior appointment. There are Activity rooms for children with lots of games, a Board room, a Billiard room, a library, 2 private temples within the palace, Durbar hall museum and vintage cars museum to explore.
Mr. Sameer and Mr Joseph, along with other polite staff ensure warm hospitality, with great service and tasty food.
The nearby Nari Halla along with Narasimha swamy honda (gorge) surrounded by green hills is scenic. The Palace Trust is running Sandur Kushal kala kendra providing marketing development for skillful Lambani embroidered textiles, wood and stone carving.
UNESCO world heritage site Hampi, via Hospet is 40 kms away and is good for a day trip. Tungabhadra Dam and Daroji Sloth bear sanctuary are other nearby attractions. Kraunch giri Kumaraswamy temple built by Chalukya and later by Rashtrkutas, inside Swamimalai forest is 10 kms away.
