Much like its history, the Palace presents a charming medley of colonial style, princely Indian culture and unexpected modern trendiness. A timeless courtesy and subtle sophistication reflect in every service lending credence to the visitor who said 'its too intimate to be called a place, too friendly to be called a hotel.'Set on the slope of Shamla Hill, the Jehan Numa Place is a stunning white structure that combines British Colonial, Italian Renaissance and Classical Greek architecture. Splashes of colourful bougainvillea, the champa, the palm and the flowering creepers are everywhere. A varied, luxuriant green drapes the building and the open spaces under a wide sky to create an enchanting visual treat. Arched walkways, colonnaded verandas 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.
