Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur

About the hotel

The Vintage coupé glides to a stop at the lake's edge. It's hard to believe the floating vision in marble is real. Blink, and indeed, there is a luminous palace emerging from the mist. Suddenly you are in a boat, drifting ever closer and the reality doesn't disappoint. With the Aravalli Mountains and city palaces as a backdrop one gets an impending sense of enchantment.Accommodations at Taj Lake Palace, a Leading Small Hotel, are as delightful as the exterior. Every one of our romantic rooms holds a story and among the most compelling is The Chandra Prakash Suite, meaning Lustre of the Moon. The decorative gilt moldings, sculpted marble columns, and fine fretwork screens impressed even the Maharaja who held court in this very room in the 1930s.There are countless unique experiences to be had. Indulge in royal Mewar fare at the Lily Pond, where courtesans once welcomed royalty into the folds of the palace. Or sail into a purple sunset on a 150-year old ceremonial barge complete with candlelight and resplendently dressed oarsmen. Indulge in a heritage walk with a royal escort armed with caviar, pate and a bottle of bubbly. Soak in the sounds and sights of the city as your royal butler accompanies you on a shopping trip. In this royal dream, anything is possible. "
