    lake palace hotel


    one of the most expensive hotels in india ,the most important thing for me was i got my one day stay here for US$525.00 for one day stay. the room was very romantic and filled with marble floor and dinner was good .a much is written and said about this palace but staying here is priceless.

  • Unique Udaipur experience


    The hotel is located in the middle of a man-made lake in Udaipur. The Taj group recently renovated the hotel, providing modern amenities while maintaining the romantic charm of this unique location. For dinner one night, we ate on the palace boat while touring the lake that the royal family used over 100 years ago. A rare experience with a first class and very attentive hotel staff.

    Unique Quality: The palace is located in the middle of a large lake and commands views of the city and other palace locations.

    Maharaja-feeling from dawn to dusk


    Already when looking at the Lake-Palace Hotel one seems to be in a fairytale:about 500m distant from the shore in the city center of Udaipur, a small boat is taking the guests to the Palace-Hotel, where you will be greeted with a necklace of flowers and a cold drink.
    Conceived in romance, the palace was built in 1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II, 62nd successor to the royal dynasty of Mewar – believed to be descendants of the Sun God
    Everything here seems to be a bit unreal, the palace-rooms, refurbished and functioning now as lobby, library and restaurant as well as the beautiful guest rooms in typical indian style. A very special experience is the palace garden with its many tropical flowers and the restaurant, facing the garden.The whole structure is made of white marble. A special experience the modern swimming-pool with its own small park in lush green colours.
    The only thing one has to get accostumed with áre the 1000s of blackbirds, occupying the whole garden from subset to the next early morning, creating an unbelievable noise !

    Unique Quality: Unparalleled location in the middle of Lake Pichola, Udaipur

    Beautiful women scattered rose petals at our feet!


    In October 2004 our only complaint was that the lake was rather low. But that enabled us to race our camels across the lake bed! Most excellent service.

    Be sure to take a day trip to the beautiful Jain temple at Ranakpur.

    Unique Quality: A beautiful marble palace in the middle of a lake.

More about Taj Lake Palace

World's #1 Hotel

by Chiliweenie about Floating Lake Palace

The Taj Lake Palace is a place created in dreams. It is truely a magical oasis. The complete structure is built of white marble, walls, floors, ceilings. It was built by a maharaja, who still owns the palace, situated in a man made lake. The Taj Hotel chain leases the building and has done a superb job, not only with upkeep, but with the quality of service. Its the #1 hotel in the world, no doubts. Rooms are decorated in sheer fabrics and most rooms have excellent views across the lake to Udaipur. If your tour allows, spend AT LEAST 3 nights here. It will be the high light of your trip. Excellent views, beautiful pool area, best massage center I've come across to date, food is outstanding (although expensive).

is there a dining facility in taj lake palace for tourists who want to enjoy food but r not residing in taj lake palace....................

Re: dining

by Odinnthor

Absolutely! The Lake Palace Hotel is my favorite in Udaipur, and I encourage anyone to go and have a close look at it, even if they don't stay there. The Shiv Nivas Hotel right across from the Lake Palace is also a top property with very nice restaurants.

Although one of the lesser Bond films, "Octopussy" was filmed in great part in Udaipur, anf the Lake Palace was used as the main villain's lair. Rent it and enjoy the look at the hotel. Although, from what I hear now, the film is played on a contiuous loop in every bloody bar and restaurant in Udaipur.

I have stayed at the Lake Palace several times and loved every minute of it.
