Located in India, in the heart of Rajasthan, the majestic hotel Taj Lake Palace seems to be floating above the water. Its magnificent white marble walls stand tall on the lake to welcome guests in a chimerical setting.
A luxury hotel at the centre of a lake
Finding a hotel as legendary as the Taj Lake Palace is rare. Dream destination, this iconic hotel’s reputation is largely founded on its marvellous and atypical setting.
Located at the centre of the Udaipur lake, the palace is built upon small island. Its size and uncommon architecture gives the spectacular impression of coming out of the lake. Separated from the lake and other surrounding buildings, the hotel is only accessible by boat, making this hotel an oasis of tranquillity.
It was in 1746 that a palace was built on the very same island, now occupied by the Taj Lake Palace. For centuries, it remained under the Maharana’s control. In 1971, however, the Taj hotel company took over the island and the building, transforming it into one of the grandest palaces on the planet.
The Taj Lake Palace’s charm
The sumptuous white walls of the Taj Lake Palace welcomes guests in an exceptional setting.
The adventure begins at the lake’s crossing aboard little boats, leading them within a veritable Hindu palace. Inside, clients will take in a decor representative of Indian history, immersing oneself into local art and culture.
The rooms feature precious woods and hand-made embroideries with a unique view of the lake, the mountains or the magnificent pond at the centre of the palace’s inner courtyard.
The Taj Lake Palace welcomes guests all year long for minimum 413 euros per night.
