Jehan Numa Palace Hotel
More than a hotel – Jehan Numa is an experience. You could be a business traveller attending a meeting or a conference, or you could be just stopping here for a day or two on your journey deeper down the rich heritage trails of Madhya Pradesh. You could be a tourist exploring Bhopali culture, or maybe wanting to stay longer to connect with your inner creative muse as artists and writers and seekers have done before you here. Jehan Numa becomes the haven to come home to in Bhopal, made more beckoning by the personalized care and comfort in a delightful setting.
There is a history that talks to you when you visit the Jehan Numa Hotels – a rare and royal heritage that you will discover everywhere, and especially in the fine nuances of the culture and hospitality that welcomes you. Jehan Numa speaks gently but eloquently of a unique and distinctive influence – that of the Begums of Bhopal.
In 1983, Nadir and Yawar Rashid, the grandsons of General Obaidullah Khan, and the owners of the Palace, decided to share their legacy with the world. In 2011, Jehan Numa opened Reni Pani Jungle Lodge, a reflection of the family's abiding interest in wildlife and the environment. In 2014, a distinctive Retreat, at the edge of Bhopal, opened to provide a getaway that is quietly understated and luxurious at the same time. Royal living, once the sole preserve of nawabs, is offered to guests generously and with courtesy. The fine tradition of Bhopali hospitality continues, as the younger generation, sons of Nadir and Yawar, now play host to the world.
