Suryauday Haveli is an exceptionally beautiful resort in Varanasi. The location is excellent in that it is ‘away from the maddening crowd’ so to speak yet only a five minute boat ride to the main ghat Dashashwamedha ghat. There is an entrance from the resort into the Ganges and the Ganges is super clean at Shivalaya Ghat which is where... More

You cannot drive to this hotel but walk through the streets amongst the people - what an experience but on arrival you are so warmly greeted and made to feel right at home.

The hotel operates a complementary boat service morning and evening to see the ceremonies on the ghats and provides live music to entertain whilst eating supper in the evenings.

The welcome was warm, perfect hosts! Lovely room overlooking the Ganges. Excellent food and service with a gift to finish. Very happy to have stayed here! Close to Ghat for the Aarti ceremony with own boat to take you there. In a less obvious but perfect spot.

Walking up from the Shivala Ghat to a cosy courtyard drowned in the fragrance of the blooming harsingar, the destination was surprisingly serene. The staff were extraordinarily hospitable and accommodating. It was a lovely 3 hours compelling me to plan a stay on my next visit to Benaras.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the spirit of the holy city of Benaras. The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century. It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk). ... more   less
