This hotel gives a good view of what the place was like in imperial times. it has a perfectly manicured english lawn, and could almost be an english country house. Being so high up, you get away from the oppressive heat that much of the country suffers from. It's a great place to go to get away from the intensity of the rest of the country and recharge your batteries. Formal dinner is served in the evening, and you are expected to wear jacket and tie (both provided). Attention: your driver doesn't get commission or a free room here, so he might be reluctant to go, but don't miss out. (YahooTravel -
