"An erstwhile colonial retreat, the resort is surrounded by coffee and cardamom plantations. Due to logistical constraints, guests will be permitted to carry only a limited amount of baggage to the tree house as it is extremely difficult to lift heavy luggage 50 – 60 ft up to your accommodation. “The resort’s mind-blowing location is its biggest plus. Watch the roaring river flowing by from your cottage. It is a must visit place during monsoon,” says HolidayIQ Traveller Vishnu Prasath from Chennai.

The property is located at the middle of the lake. It’s hard to believe the floating vision in marble is real. With the Aravalli Mountains and city palaces as a backdrop one gets an impending sense of enchantment. “Their hospitality and the view is beautiful,” says HolidayIQ Traveller Dhiraj Anand Kahtri. Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Rudi Kloss, “It isn't often that one arrives via boat and under the shower of rose pedals to a hotel but this is the case with Taj Lake Palace. I stayed here with my wife for three nights on a summer package which offered great value compared to simply booking a room. We had breakfast, a massage, a private dinner, astrologer session, palace tour, airport transfer all included with a lake view room.”
