The Shiv Niwas Palace in Udaipur
Where royalty has always felt at home, today you are invited to an experience of a lifetime. The crescent-shaped palace was built in the early 20th century, in the reign of Maharana Fateh Singh (period of reign: 1884-1930), and has been meticulously maintained and preserved for guests like you.
Shiv Niwas Palace
The palace was reserved exclusively for visiting dignitaries and guests of the House of Mewar. Today it is a Grand Heritage Palace for guests, combining the elegance of the last century with modern 21st century amenities.

Shiv Niwas Palace offers beautiful, yet differing suites and rooms to choose from 17 individually decorated suites carry original furniture and portraits that have been with the royal family for generations. All the suites look out onto the natural panorama of Udaipur. Unparalleled splendor and spaciousness characterise each room. Guests to Shiv Niwas Palace like to return time and again. The hospitality is unchanged from the not-so-distant times when Shiv Niwas Palace was a royal guesthouse.

Shiv NIwas Palace was Bond's hotel in Octopussy (1983)

The jetty you arrive at, when you travel by boat, is at the base of the wall of the City Palace and Shiv Niwas, and is close to the place where Octopussy’s boat docks. Looking up we could see the veranda of Bond’s hotel room, exactly as is shown in the movie.

Shiv Niwas Palace has a new reception area since 1983 but the old entrance is very recognisable from the film, by the elephant sculptures on either side of the gate.

Through the bar area leads to the swimming pool that is seen in the film and is unchanged.
