About Us

WelcomHeritage, a joint venture between ITC Ltd. and Jodhana Heritage, represents some of the best traditions of heritage hospitality and tourism in India. It offers over 40 exclusive heritage destinations, ranging from grand palaces to traditional havelis and magnificent forts; quiet nature resorts in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh Jammu & Kashmir, West Bengal, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Sikkim, Uttar Pradesh & Goa

A holiday with WelcomHeritage is always special: timeless bazaars, elephant and camel safaris, local festivals, desert camps and a variety of adventure and sport activities. Steeped in history are stories of heroic warriors and illustrious queens; of royal courts and princes; pomp and pageantry and gracious and splendid living. Through the relentless passage of time, many a legend has been relegated to the pages of history, others are extolled in verse and sung by traditional bards and folk singers. Some live in the palaces, forts and royal retreats even today. Their private homes beckon the visitor, with elegant WelcomHeritage hospitality. We offer you a slice of history, with one major difference:

You, too, can be a part of it!

The Secret of a Great Escape

H.H Gajsingh II
Maharaja of Marwar-Jodhpur

WelcomHeritage Hotels offers the secrets of a great escape. At each WelcomHeritage hotel, you can experience our rich heritage and culture. A Fort Resort at the rim of a desert, or a country manor in the lap of a green valley. A Jungle Lodge in a wildlife forest reserve, or a Palace or Haveli, resonant with the past. A picture-postcard cottage ensconced in mystic mountains or a splendid mansion on the spur of a hill. A spa in a heritage home, a houseboat on a sparkling lake, a colonial hill residence with tea gardens for a view, a mist-wrapped palace in fragrant plantations. Each hotel has a secret to share, a story to tell - and so will you.

Moreover, each WelcomHeritage hotel has the blueprint of a great holiday all laid out for you. Every hotel offers you an opportunity to go where you get away to all that is not ordinary.

All that is exclusive, while being affordable. Unusual, without being over-the-top. WelcomHeritage's over 40 hotels are sited conveniently - often in stunningly scenic locations - with easy connections from cities, making them the perfect holiday option.

Most of all, you will find an atmospheric, boutique experience, far removed from standardised sameness. Hospitality that comes from the heart. Accommodation that combines a slice of heritage with modern amenities. A local flavour in the cuisine, the craft and the cultural vignettes. Views to fill albums, walls dotted with frames, trophies and treasures. A feeling of being at a home away from home.

And, last but not the least, that uncommon unforgettable quality that makes your holiday a holiday to remember - and recount.
