Taj Lake Palace
Royal Pedigree

Appearing to float magically in the center of the lake, the enchanting Taj Lake Palace is truly a world unto itself. Built as a palace for Maharana Jagat Dingh II, this hotel redefines opulence. From sculpted marble columns and decorative gilt moldings to rich silks and ornately colored frescos, every room captures a different period from the building's regal past. (For couples, book one of the suites with a traditional swing-built-for-two or a private terrace.) The guest experience is equally sumptuous, with royal butlers at your service, multi course meals inspired by regal menus, and indulgent extras like candlelit sunset sails on a 150-year-old ceremonial barge.
