Revisit the charm of yesteryears at some of the most resplendent palaces in India. Incredible architectural marvels and destinations of true splendor, each of the Grand Palaces of the Taj has everything one could dream of.
1. Taj Lake Palace-Udaipur
Udaipur is one of the most romantic palaces in the world. Seemingly floating atop Lake Pichola, be mesmerised with delightful boat rides, historic rooftop views, gourmet meals curated in royal kitchens and fine living in suites that are timeless symbols of eras gone by. Enjoy a once in a lifetime experience at the Jiva Spa Boat. The only one of its kind in the country, the regal spa on a boat blends the aura of Taj Lake Palace and the rejuvenating experiences of Jiva Spa.
2. Umaid Bhavan Palace-Jodhpur
It is the last of India’s great palaces and one of the world’s largest private residences. This golden hued monument, made of desert sandstone can be spotted from anywhere in the city. Designed by the famed Edwardian architect, Henry Lanchester, from art deco-inspired interiors to traditional Rajputana concepts of luxury, Umaid Bhawan Palace is a timeless testimony to extravagant living. One must experience the private dinner at The Baradari Lawns. A beautiful white marble structure stands in the middle of the lush green expanse and gives you a breathtaking view of the palace and fort. Walk down a candle-lit pathway, ushered by traditionally turban-clad attendants to the majestic dining area.
3. Rambagh Palace-Jaipur
Extravagance has always been a way of life. Once the residence of the royal family, even today, peacocks strut in the evenings and a buggy passes you by. Butlers are at your beck aid call and luxuries include private meals in tents lit by flaming torches. The theatrical interiors and ceremonial suites make Rambagh Palace deliberately lavish. Discover rooms adorned with crystal chandeliers, arched stonework, textured drapes and gold-leaf frescos. From the Sukh Niwas Suite to the Maharani Suite and Peacock Suite, the Historical Suites and Palace Rooms, step in and live the good life.
