Mumbai, May 22nd, 2014: Several hotels from the Taj Group portfolio have been rated as best in Asia and the world in the Trip Advisor Travellers' Choice Awards 2014. Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur stole the show as the Best Hotel with Exceptional Service as well as the Best Hotel for Romance, in India. It also ranked amongst the lists of the Top 25 Hotels in India and in the World.
The breathtakingly beautiful Taj Lake Palace represents the most romantic environment of architectural significance and historical grandeur. It appears like a jeweled lotus seemingly afloat on the soft, shimmering waters of Lake Pichola. Every one of its room's is rich in heritage and whispers stories of royalty. The decorative gilt moldings, sculpted marble columns, and fine fretwork screens make this palace a majestic treat for guests. With the Aravalli Mountains and city palaces as a backdrop one gets an impending sense of enchantment.
Experience the regal lifestyle of Mewar kings and queens of bygone eras as you drive up to the jetty in a sleek Jaguar or a classic vintage car from the Maharaja's own private fleet, only to be greeted by a magnificent procession of traditional folk dancers and fire eaters. Sail across the Pichola to meet your very own personal butler who will settle you into your suite with preparations that include a rose petal bath and flutes of fine champagne.
Let the heady feeling of love take over as you and your loved one sail into a purple sunset on the hotel's legendary 150-year old Gangaur boat complete with candlelight and resplendently dressed oarsmen.
And since no luxury experience is complete without an indulgent, rejuvenating spa treatment, unwind on the unique Jiva Spa Boat which will take you gliding across Lake Pichola as you soak in the spa bath on the deck or get an aromatherapy massage at the hands of a personal masseuse. In this royal dream, anything is possible.
