The Luxury Suite, as it is now called, served as the living quarters of Reggie’s grandfather, Raja Charanjit Singh of Kapurthala who bought Chapslee in 1938. He was the uncle of the famous Maharaja of Kapurthala H.H Jagatjit Singh and like him was an avid collector and connoisseur of good living. It is Raja Charanjit Singh’s collection of antiquities that makes Chapslee truly unique and it was his legacy that Reggie wished to showcase by way of “The Chapslee Experience.” He served as a member of the Council of State, and was invited to the coronation of King George the VI. He was a gourmet extraordinaire and had the distinction of having one of the finest tables in North India, a reputation that survives to this day.

The Luxury Suite is grand, both in terms of size and appointments. As you enter from the landing your eyes immediately focus on the beautiful and ornate King sized brass bed which is the focal point of the room. As you look around your eyes rest on the chaise lounge, the unique reading stand the delicate dressing table, the writing desk, and the English lace curtains. A fine pair of French tapestries adorn walls which are covered with a subtle rhododendron patterned wall paper. The adjoining sitting area with its own fire place, has enchanting views of the hills on two sides which cannot fail to enthral the visitor.

As befitting the room, the bathroom is equally grand with a chandelier and it’s own fireplace!
