Be enchanted by this family fort set along the Narmada river with spectacular views of the river from its luxurious indoors. The Fort has river ghats and views of boats going up and down the river, thereby opening the visitor unto unseen rural India and for those incredible photos that could be the cover of travel magazines.

The Ahilya Fort stay is an experience first and an accommodation second. Enjoy boat rides, birdwatching and colourful laundry patches spread out below the fort rocks. British visitors would be surprised to discover an Old Etonian gathering every November at the fort.
