TAJ LAKE PALACE, UDAIPUR
A matchless way to experience Udaipur, the Taj Lake Palace is one of India’s most romantic destinations. With its distinguishing character, it reincarnates the elegant lifestyles of India’s fabled Rajput royalty.
USP – The exquisite Lake Palace is like a sparkling jewel on Lake Pichola. A palace, floating in the centre of the tranquil waters, is the chief attraction. This fantasy in white marble has a supreme location, unique ambience, majestic infrastructure and exquisite architecture. It was built by Maharana Jagat Singhji II as a pleasure palace. In 1971 the Taj stepped in, giving guests a peek into the class and indulgence that had thus far been reserved for royalty. The Jiva Spa Boat is a first of its kind, evoking the majestic ambience of the traditional barges and the beautiful island-palaces of the royal family of Udaipur, this elegant floating spa is an experience unique to Taj Lake Palace.
HERITAGE PICK – The foundation stone of the palace was laid in 1743 and it was inaugurated in 1746 as Jag Niwas. It was turned into one of the most idealistic hotels in the world by Maharana Bhagwat Singhji in 1963.
BLENDING HISTORY WITH LUXURY – The lifestyle of the Mewar royals was truly luxurious. The unique glass mosaic work across the palace and some of the luxurious suites have always attracted attention to the bygone era. This is coupled with the best in traditional Indian hospitality offered by Taj.
PRIZED ARTEFACT – These are the only palace domes to be adorned with Belgian crystals—a result of the infatuation of a Maharana with the novelty of the then times.
