Amazing Island Hotel Property in Udaipur !!

Posted 11 Apr

We stayed in Taj Lake Palace last year for a day and it was a sublime experience. While I had been there earlier for lunch a couple of times, this was my first stay at the hotel . . Taj Lake Palace, located in Lake Pichhola, is one of the only hotels to be situated in the middle of a water body. You need to take a ferry to reach the hotel, which is an experience in itself in case you travel in the evenings. The staff welcomed us with utmost courtesy and a nice garland. Post the check-in, we entered the room which was beautifully done with colored glass panes, filtering sunlight into different colors. The bed and the linens are neatly done with king-size beds and the room was pretty luxurious. We were told that all the rooms are uniquely done and not the same, which was surprising for us. The designing of the hotel is carefully done and the pool is as good as it looks in the photographs. In the evening, we had a nice candlelight dinner, by the lakeside, an experience to remember. The online advice I would have for my fellow travelers is to book in advance, as the prices can be really steep. And you might still not find a room available during peak season. During our stay, we just could not find any faults with the property. It was just perfect and picture perfect.

This is one of the most stunning and beautiful places. You have to take a boat from a private jetty to get here and the staff are very welcoming and make you feel extremely special. Once you reach the property. The views of the lake and surroundings are great. Obviously it is not a cheap hotel to stay, and this is evident in the decor, surroundings and service. Everything feels extremely grand and opulent. The rooms are large. Food is also very good and there are a lot of varieties at breakfast time. I would recommend taking a shawl/cardigan, as you are on the lake sometimes the evenings can be cooler.

Perfect romantic destination

Posted 16 Aug, 2017

Welcoming by vintage car ride to the charming city of Udaipur, the Jiva Spa boat, royal butlers, recipes from traditional Mewari cuisine and arrival by boat - all little facets that make this former pleasure palace the celebrated luxury hotel it is today. The service we got at this hotel was best we ever got. How can someone resist falling in love with this romantic place surrounded by lake. We got this amazing app called padharo Udaipur they booked this hotel, restaurants and arranged for every tour we had here. If you are in Udaipur just get the app and you will experience Udaipur at its best.

Perfect location and awesome hospitality

Posted 16 Oct, 2015

Our principle purpose was to have a leisure & relaxing holiday, which this property fully guarantees Amenities in our room were excellent. Gave you a feeling of traditional Maharaja style of living. Beds were very comfortable, including the sit in places within the room. Wash-room had all modern facilities, with plenty of excellent toiletries. Immediate substitution on demand. Quality of TV service was excellent despite the Resort located in midst of river. Breathtaking view in night Taj is known for their hospitality, courtesy & very cooperative behaviour of staff. We remember one incidence. Our stay plan included one glass of wine after the evening round of Palace. The staff obliged for refill without raising an eyebrow. The staff always ready to help with a broad smile on their face Guests can use Resort boats as many times they wish to go river bank. We used the facility daily twice from 6PM to 10PM. Go for walk across the river&then come back. Very relaxing Guests must opt for MAPI plan which includes BB & Dinner, so that they can enjoy quite affordable Rajasthani lunch, if wish across the river No need to carry any toiletries except your special Rajor because Resort provide everything Plenty of places around, specially must see Jag temple in night. Little expensive but breath taking location, Princely treatment&Taj hospitality make up for that. Only drawback is little smaller pool, may be because of Palace limitation. To save on cost, plan your trip in last week of September, well in advance We have been repeating our leisure 3N trip (3rd Night Room&BB only) every 2 yrs Its a life time experience to stay at such luxurious Taj Property.

Taj Lake Palace Udaipur review

Posted 30 Jul, 2016

The ethereal Taj Lake Palace affords guests the pleasures of India's bygone princely era. Over the centuries, it has played host to royalty, poets and writers and the Maharana's guests. Trappings like a welcoming vintage car ride to the charming city of Udaipur, the Jiva Spa boat, royal butlers, recipes from traditional Mewari cuisine and arrival by boat - all little facets that make this former pleasure palace the celebrated luxury hotel it is today. Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur is all it claims to be, and much more! A breathtakingly romantic location, steeped in history, the Lake Palace is an amazing destination for a perfect vacation. As with all Taj hotels, the service is amazing! In fact, the service at the Lake Palace is probably the best we have encountered so far. The staff is extremely friendly, and spared no efforts in making our stay memorable. Even the drivers, boat drivers, the house keeping staff are all well trained to take care of the guests. The front office staff, the staff at Neel Jamal and Jharokha, their restaurants, and the bar are all amazing! The food at Taj Lake Palace deserves a special mention! The Chefs are doing a brilliant job and dishing out amazing food to the guests! Being a Palace hotel, the rooms and suites are truly made for royals, and transport you to that era! Our vacation at The Lake Palace, Udaipur, was one of the most memorable, thanks to the staff at this beautiful Taj property!

Fantastic architecture floating on the lake

Posted 25 Nov, 2015

Unlike most of the hotels it is situated in the middle of a lake. As you enter the hotel on the boat, the rose petals start falling on you. It's a great feeling for everyone when you get this type of welcome. As it's an old Palace, now turned into the hotel. The ambience is also fabulous. It's a perfect example of an architectural beauty of the olden times which still stands Coming to the rooms they are just great. The food, activities, front office (finest in the World) and the cherry on the cake was the rooftop yoga. The bathrooms were also uniquely built. Feels like you are taking Bath in the lake only. But it's only for the wealthy people.
