Choose Mr Prem Singh as your butler and you can be certain he takes care of you in an impeccable manner we've never experienced before; he listens and gets to know you and your needs better than you do yourself both in terms of smoothening and impact. We chose the Jal Tarang suite as it suited us perfectly; its light... More

Driving down from Ranthambhore to Udaipur, we discovered the roads are good , but have no directions. At one point we suspected we were driving towards Delhi rather than Udaipur, until we managed to make a one eighty degree turn. Even in Udaipur, the directions and areas were not well signed, so it was quite an effort getting to the... More

The Taj Lake Palace was utter luxury when we got stranded in Udaipur due to a cancelled flight connection way back in December 2010. We managed to get a room for the four of us (including two children aged 9 and 7 years). But it turned out to be a dream come true to stay at this royal hotel. The... More

Dear The_Karanis, Thank you for your wonderful review. It does seem like your flight cancellation was a blessing in disguise, enabling as it did your discovery of Udaipur’s crown jewel. How very fortunate indeed! Perhaps you may consider reliving the experience this December and should you need any assistance with reservations, please do write to me at lpugm.udp@tajhotels.com.

Arriving at night across the lake to the beautifully lit Lake Palace was a truly memorable experience. Rose petals float down from the sky to greet you at the entrance and that attention to detail sums up this hotel. No wonder they get voted India's number one. Like the Taj Mahal, this is one of those places you really should... More

Nothing else comes even close to the Taj Lake Palace Property. Its unique, luxurious & regal. Everything about this property shouts exclusive & expensive. One should definitely opt for the Lake View Rooms facing the Fort for brilliants views especially at night. The food is excellent. Any restaurant you walk into your guaranteed outstanding service & food. The rooms are... More

This is the closest I will ever come to being royalty. That's certainly what it felt like. The service is seamless -- always there without being stifling, and you truly feel that you don't have a care in the world. The extra touches like a personalized skin scrub (and a do-it-yourself whiskey soda!) that you find in your room at... More
