Like a vision from a fairy tale, this white marble palace seems to rise out of Udaipur's Lake Pichola from its island location. You hop onto a private boat from the City Palace on the northeast bank of the lake, and arrive to a warm welcome at Taj Lake Palace. Jagdish Temple and Bagore ki Haveli are both within less than a half-mile (about a half-kilometer).
You can unwind at the full-service Jiva Spa, or enjoy your spa treatments while floating in Lake Pichola on the Jiva Spa Boat. Taj Lake Palace offers your choice of fine-dining at Neel Kamal or at the rooftop restaurant Bhairo. Or if you’d like, you can arrange to enjoy your meals on lake flotillas or by the Lily Pond, a quiet courtyard with fountain. Breakfast is available daily for a surcharge. If morning yoga on the rooftop terrace isn’t for you, you can take a dip in the outdoor pool and enjoy a drink by the bar or in the hot and cold spa tubs. Taj Lake Palace also offers Clefs d’Or concierge services, a health center, floor butlers, luggage storage, and 24-hour room service. The hotel has a conference center and business center, and free wireless Internet access in public areas and guestrooms. An airport shuttle is available upon request (surcharge).
All 83 richly decorated rooms and suites come with fireplaces, and you can enjoy breakfast on your balcony overlooking the beautiful surroundings. Each room offers complimentary WiFi and wired high-speed Internet access. Individually decorated to evoke different historical periods and moods, each room has an LCD television with satellite channels, as well as a refrigerator and minibar. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations with handheld showerheads, bathrobes, slippers, and makeup/shaving mirrors. You can rest easy, with a pillow menu and a nightly turndown service.
