Taj Lake Palace Udaipur
Called the city of lakes, Udaipur lies in the northwestern state of Rajasthan and is known for its wealth of elegantly preserved Rajput palaces. When it was transformed into a hotel, its grand interiors drew the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, Queen Elizabeth II and the King of Nepal.
Occupying a four-acre island in Pichola Lake, the hotel appears to float on turquoise water. Cypress-shaded courtyards, gardens and fountains dot the graceful white marble complex, which was built facing the east so that residents could pray to the sun god at dawn.
For those who want to have fun outdoors, horseback riding and wildness trekking is available nearby, and for those who want to relax, the hotel offers Jiva Spa treatments and quiet Heritage Champagne Walks along the grounds.
Taj Lake Palace boasts rooms with beautifully carved wooden furniture and luxurious silk fabrics. Offering garden or lake views, each and every one of the 66 rooms and 17 suites offer stunning views and intricate décor to envelop guests in royal mystique.
Grand Royal Suites
Perched delicately in the middle of tranquil Lake Pichola amid the green Aravalli mountains, the Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur is just a 30-minute drive west of the Dabok Airport along the national highway. After arriving at the lake's shoreline, you'll be escorted to the hotel by boat.
