Taj Taj Lake Palace Udaipur

Taj Lake Palace

Grand Palace Hotel in Udaipur at Lake Pichola

Jag Niwas, constructed between 1743-1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II, the 62nd custodian of House of Mewar, was used as a summer retreat by the Mewar Royal family over years until Maharana Bhagwat Singh, Mewar of Udaipur in 1963 converted it into a heritage hotel. A jewel floating in the middle of Lake Pichola, Taj Lake Palace is a building made of marble locally sourced from Rajnagar, brought in by bullock carts travelling 66 kms to Udaipur. Architecture influenced from Mughals, predominantly lead by Mewari techniques this heritage hotel in Udaipur has 65 luxurious rooms and 18 grand suites. 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.  
 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 open only to resident guests. Signature speciality restaurants at this palace serve 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 being pampered as a royal at our Jiva Spa in Udaipur, with carefully created treatments drawn from the ancient wellness heritage of India, and the fabled lifestyle and savoir vivre of Indian royalty. This 5 star palace hotel in Udaipur at Lake Pichola continues the tradition of grand soirees and formal levees which were hosted here by the royal family of Udaipur. 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 planning a special tour of the city of lakes in one of our vintage cars.

Loved the vibe!
The experience was amazing, the service too was great! Breakfast at Jharokha was exceptional! But the dinner at Neel Kamal was a let down. Really had great expectations to grab an authentic Rajasthani meal, but was disappointed with the taste. Hope to have a better experience next time.

Magical place
our stay at the taj lake was delightful as the place is truly beautiful, the service remarquable and the food served (at the two restaurants) really excellent. Our host Palak was very kind to us and make us felt like valued guests. The only flaw was at the check out as we didn't feel very welcomed anymore. The person who did the check out with us was very helpful and kind (especially to help us make a bus reservation). But we had to ask multiples times to have a transportation to the bus station. A person asked us several times if we had settled the bill. Another person suggested to us to wait ouside as we were waiting in the lobby (and it was raining outside). Those things aren't for us major defaults but we didn't felt as welcomed as when we had checked in.
