Lebua Hotel Lucknow

Hotel Lebua Lucknow (now Saraca Estate)

Located in Central Lucknow, Saraca (earlier called Lebua) is a heritage bungalow turned into a hotel. The hotel is a sprawling Colonial Bungalow which was originally constructed in 1936 and renovated in 2016 for being converted in to a boutique heritage hotel. It overlooks a lush green lawn and reflects the ‘Art Deco’, architecture from the early 1900’s.

This Heritage Bungalow is a throwback to the early 1900s’ architecture and at the same time has all aspects of the modern hospitality. The melange of modern as well as traditional ethos ensures that the ‘Ganga-Jamuna’ (composite & secular) culture of Lucknow seeps deep into the heart & mind of every guest.


The Saraca Estate hotel comprises 41 rooms categorised as – Saraca Suite, Heritage Suite, Residency and Awadh Room. Although the Awadh Room sounds like depicting the Awadhi art & architecture, but it is like any other room and may not be a good bet, in spite of being low priced. The best are its Suites and each suite embodies the architecture, throwing back to the early 1900s and range in size from about 200 to 500 square feet each.
