Royal Orchid Metropole


A member of the renowned Royal Orchid Hotels group, the Royal Orchid Metropole is widely considered t be amongst the best hotels in Mysore. Located in the heart of the city, and spread over 2.5km of beautiful land, the hotel is situated within the historical home of the former Maharaja of Mysore, built in 1920. Its heritage provides a beautiful setting for a hotel, with a fusion of old-world charm and modern touches.

There are two restaurants on-site: Shikari – an al-fresco option serving international cuisine; and Tiger Trail – offering traditional Indian delights. Additionally, the High Tea café lounge is perfect for afternoon treats, whilst the Skan’Del lounge bar is lovely in the evenings.

Three categories of room are available: the entry-level Royal Rooms are well-appointed and spacious; Heritage Rooms are larger and more opulently decorated, and the Maharaja Suites larger still, offering wonderful views over the pool from their private balcony.


Rooms are equipped with balconies, tea/coffee facilities, safety deposit boxes, complimentary Wi-Fi and television. Other facilities include pool, fitness suite and gaming room, two restaurants, a café and a lounge bar.

Optional Activities

There are several local attractions to visit, such as: Mysore palace; Mysore zoo, Chamundi Hills, KRS Dam and Brindavan garden; and Ranaganathittu bird sanctuary.
