Taj Lake Palace


Taj Lake Palace rises majestically from a four-acre island in the centre of Lake Pichola with a backdrop of the Aravalli Mountains and Udaipur. Guests arrive at the lake in style in a chauffeur-driven car, before stepping onto a gondola for a short ride to the hotel.

The 83 rooms and suites offer superb views and round-the-clock butler service. Interiors are delightfully romantic, combining old world opulence with contemporary sophistication. Each room is decorated with the finest silks, richly coloured frescoes and ornately carved furniture. The Grand Royal Suites are the epitome of luxury and the exquisitely designed Chandra Prakash Suite is highly recommended.

This member of the Leading Hotels of the World offers a myriad of gastronomic experiences. Highlights include Rajasthani cuisine served overlooking the lake, and contemporary European delicacies at Bhairo. The high tea is not to be missed.

Take a sunset cruise; experience supreme pampering aboard the Jiva Spa Boat; enjoy some yoga; laze by the pool; or have a consultation with an astrologer.

Why we recommend Taj Lake Palace

Often called ‘The Floating Palace’, this four-acre masterpiece is not only exquisite but offers incredible facilities. For me the icing on the cake is dinner at the rooftop Bhairo Restaurant which offers amazing views of the complex - the views at night are to die for! The arrival at Taj Lake Palace is also something you’ll never forget: the entire experience of receiving the royal reception on the banks of Lake Pichola before sailing on a private boat to this eighteenth century jewel will stay with me forever!
