At first glance, the Taj Lake Palace looks as if it is floating in the middle of Lake Pichola. As if in a dream, its white marble and mosaic tiling glistens in the moonlight, and its reflection dances in the waters of the lake while regal dreams of a bygone era sparkle under her stars.
Reminiscent of the beautiful Taj Mahal, Taj Lake Palace was conceived in the name of romance. The palace was built in 1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II, 62nd successor to the royal dynasty of Mewar, who were believed to be descendants of the Sun God. Set against the backdrop of the majestic Aravalli Mountains on one side of the lake and lofty palaces on the other, the Taj Lake Palace spreads across a four-acre island, an almost surreal vision in marble. The Royal Butlers, descendants of the original palace retainers, look after all contemporary comforts and ensure that all guests are treated like royalty. Opulent silks, richly colored murals, and ornately carved wood furniture are just a few of the design elements that envelop guests in royal mystique.
The amazing 66 rooms, each of which are dedicated to luxury and comfort, await the lucky few who stay at Taj Lake Palace. A handful of unique and individually crafted luxury suites are available including the Udai Muhal, Sarva Shresth Suite, and the Chandra Prakash, to name a few. Throughout the hotel are historic murals and antique furnishings inlaid with pearls and gemstones, befitting of the royalty that once called Taj Lake Palace home. Taj Lake Palace’s army of Royal Butlers create magical dining moments wherever one desires: whether it is within the luxury of the suite, a sit down dinner by the Lily Pond, a romantic dinner on the Mewar Terrace overlooking the lake, dinner on the marigold-decked royal barge, on a romantic pontoon in the middle of the lake, or exclusively in the candle-studded courtyard.
The additional services Taj Lake Palace provides are beyond belief. From shopping excursions in vintage cars from the royal fleet to guided heritage champagne walks through the historic palace, the Royal Butlers are ready to serve each guest at a moment’s notice. Guests are also welcome to simply relax in the exquisite guest areas of the hotel or indulge in a spa treatment or swim. The Jiva Spa Boat is the crown jewel of any stay, blending the rejuvenating experiences of Jiva Spa with the stately ambience of the regal ceremonial barges of the royal family. This floating pleasure palace departs on multi-hour rejuvenating spa sojourns across Lake Pichola and promises a journey of soothing luxury fit for a king.Request Information
