TAJ LAKE PALACE, Udaipur
Set amidst the majestic Aravalli Hills on one side and lofty palaces on the other, this one-of-its-kind architectural marvel seems to be magically afloat over four acres. Complete with ponds for courtesans to frolic in, the Taj Lake Palace has been continuously lived in since 1746. Lily-filled ponds, gurgling fountains and indoor spaces replete with objects d’art, transport you to a world that’s a breathtaking combination of grand yet intricate architecture and impeccable personalised service. At Taj Lake Palace, transport varies, depending on what its constantly changing garage of classic cars has to offer, but the journey always begins with a boat ride to the hotel in the middle of Lake Pichola.
