Taj Lake Palace

Udaipur, India

Post Box No. 5, Lake Pichola, Udaipur, India

It’s hard to imagine such a place even exists. Built over 200 years ago, the Taj Lake Palace rises from the waters of Lake Pichola like the castles in story books…

Except...it’s only a short zip across the waters of the Pichola to the streets of Udaipur. Every minute spent here is an opportunity for awe. The ferry to the palace sets the tone. A dreamy boat ride across the lake towards the hotel’s striking white marble facade with views of Udaipur, the Aravalli mountains, and temples all around. Arrivals happen at a small dock where a staff member in traditional dress helps you up, and uses a velvet umbrella to shade you from the sun...and the shower of red petals they’ll rain down on you before you enter the lobby. It’s all very regal, which is what the well-heeled clientele ( past guests include Jacqueline Kennedy and Queen Elizabeth) come here for. Rooms offer panoramic views, and moulded ceilings with plush canopy beds and richly colored upholstery woven from Indian textiles. For the wow factor a stay in the Grand Royal Suite, with its outdoor jacuzzi and private terrace, is second to none.

    The Taj Lake Palace is unsurpassed as a hotel by its beauty and location. Thanks to our booking trough Grand Luxury Hotels we obtained an upgrade to one of the suites, which made the stay perfect beyond our dreams

    Phenomenal property but what made the trip was the service. Every single person was extremely kind and accommodating from the gentleman transferring us on the boat, to the reception staff, the restaurant staff, the spa and pool staff. I can’t say enough about the service and people. We were not only upgraded but allowed for a very early check in and very late checkout. This stay made my entire 11 day trip to India. It will always be a very special memory for me!

    It is the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed at. I loved the warm welcome and the private atmosphere. It is more a private residence than a hotel.
