Taj Taj Lake Palace

Taj Lake Palace

After the young prince, Maharana Jagat Singh II of Udaipur, was caught frolicking at moonlight picnics with ladies of the ‘zenana (the private chambers of the court)’, he built his own pleasure palace on Lake Pichola. The Maharana (ruler) called this palace which he built in 1746, Jag Niwas. Jag Niwas is today the majestic and magnificent Taj Lake Palace of Udaipur.  Restored to its pristine glory, this spectacular palace became world renowned when the James Bond film ‘Octopussy’ was filmed at it. It was the secluded lair of the film’s eponymous Bond Girl. This heritage hotel has 65 luxurious rooms and 18 grand suites. Its location on an island in the midst of a lake affords every room breathtaking views of the neighbouring City Palace, Aravalli Hills, Machla Magra Hills and Jag Mandir. The incomparable location provides the perfect backdrop for the  exquisite cuisines at the elegant restaurants of Taj Lake Palace. These are open only to resident guests. Signature speciality restaurants at this palace serves a choice of cuisines. Neel Kamal for authentic Rajasthani and other dishes from India; and the seasonally open-air Bhairo for contemporary European delicacies. In the evening, indulge in signature martinis, cocktails and a grand collection of premium international spirits at the bar, Amrit Sagar. Continue your being pampered as a royal at Jiva Spa, with a spa boat  experience like no other. Carefully created treatments draw on the ancient wellness heritage of India, and the fabled lifestyle and savoir vivre  of Indian royalty. This palace continues the tradition of grand soirees and formal levees which were hosted here by the royal family of Udaipur. Meetings and Incentives at Taj Lake Palace are like no where else in the world. Where else can you meet at a palace in the middle of a lake. And  this most romantic of hotels, is the ideal venue for fairytale weddings and magical honeymoons.  Known as the Venice of the East, the city of Udaipur, with its elaborate palaces, serene lakes, exotic temples and resplendent gardens, has a lot to offer. Our concierge would be happy to assist you in making arrangements, and plan a special tour of the city of lakes in one of our vintage cars.

Amazing experience!
Its wan truly an amazing experience to stay at Lake Palace. Stunning view from the Hotel, welcome with the shower of rose petals! Attention had been paid to every detail! Fruit and sweet snacks in the room! Outstanding Staff! I would give more than five stars to staff for looking after us and making our stay happy and comfortable. They were really friendly and helpful! We had food at Neel kamal, Jharoka and pool, area and food was really good. Chef at Jharoka restaurant was really nice and was ensuring we are happy with food. he also offered sweets and chocolates for kids few times. My 3 year old accidently slipped in the pool area and the guy working there ran straight away and brought a toy for my son. When he didn’t stopped crying he rushed and brought cookies for him and also offered him juice. We were amazed to see his service. Thanks for going beyond our expectations. Big recommendation for the heritage tour and boat tour to jag mandir! City tour was also unforgettable! We travelled to few places as part of our trip but this place was the best of all! Staying at Lake Palace might me a little pricy but it’s worth the price. It’s just unforgettable experience! We will definitely come back and highly recommend to others.

Outstanding hotel and service
The Lake Palace experience was one of the best ever. We were treated extremely well the entire time we were there. The ambience, food, art, facilities, etc., were top-notch. The service of everyone we encountered was extraordinary. Special thanks goes to Prativa Chettri who went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one.

The hospitality was exceptional!
We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Lake Taj... unfortunately we were sick upon arriving from Delhi, so I cannot comment other than saying that all of the staff were exceptional on service ...
