The Gateway Hotel, Varanasi

Star Rating 5   Official rating
Star Rating 4   Distant Journeys rating

Located in the ancient temple city of Varanasi and situated within 40 acres of lush landscaped gardens, is The Gateway Hotel. Its surroundings are a great place for a leisurely morning or evening stroll during your stay. But there’s plenty to explore just beyond your hotel, too. Not too far from your enchanting accommodation is Banaras Hindu University, the home of a priceless collection of Indian paintings. You can also discover the most sacred temple in India’s Holy City, the Vishwanath Temple, where you can view Lord Shiva’s Idol and the gold-plated tower and dome.

On your return to The Gateway Hotel, should you find yourself tired from your day’s adventures, The Gateway Hotel Spa offers a peaceful environment where you can treat yourself to a massage or a number of rejuvenating therapies.

Your stay

Get lost in the old world charm captured throughout in the aesthetics and ambience of the hotel, while enjoying all the modern amenities you’d expect from quality accommodation. Each guest room is spacious and tastefully decorated and enhanced by a level of service that is second-to-none.

Dining at Gateway All Day

The Gateway Hotel Varanasi is widely known for having some of the best restaurants in the city, so you really needn’t leave your hotel to sample some of the finest food available. At the Gateway All Day you can indulge in international delicacies, and a wide range of Indian, pan-Asian and continental dishes. Carefully crafted with authenticity and flavour in mind, both the buffet and a-la-carte menu will no doubt impress even the most discerning diner.

Dining at Varuna

Described by many as one of the best fine dining restaurants in Varanasi, Varuna treats diners to authentic Indian cuisine that can’t be beaten elsewhere in the city. In fact, the Satvik Thali served at the restaurant has become part of the city’s cuisine culture, and the reason why locals visit time and time again. What better recommendation than the love of the locals? While each dish’s presentation is close to perfection, the chefs work hard to ensure they taste even better. And with a lovely atmosphere to match, there’s little more you could want from a choice of restaurants during your stay.
