A jewel set on the placid rim of Lake Pichola in Udaipur city, the Taj Lake Palace offers opulent comfort born of 16th-century Indian aristocracy. Ideal for jet-setters looking for status and style.
The Taj Lake Palace is an icon of Indian luxury, one that quickly comes to mind when thinking of the city of Udaipur in Rajasthan. Defying the limits of land, it sits on rather than near the man-made Lake Pichola.
While the Lake Palace was built in 1749 by successors to the dynasty of Mewar (believed to be descendants of the Sun God), its facilities are top-of-the-line. If you can't break away from business, it offers ready access to laptops, Internet, copiers, secretarial services, vintage cars, meeting rooms, and banquet halls.
Every suite is uniquely crafted and named, from the antique swing and stained-glass panels of the Khush Mahal to the golden chandeliers and gilt mouldings of the Chandra Prakash. Every room features stunning views of the lake.
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.
Perched delicately in the middle of tranquil Lake Pichola amid the green Aravalli mountains, the Taj Lake Palace 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.
The nearest airport is Dabok Airport: 27 km / 17 miles
