Ever since I was a teenager I dreamed of staying at the Lake Palace Hotel after seeing and keeping an article in a magazine - and finally my dream came true. The hotel is paradise on earth!
We spent four nights at this superb Heritage hotel to celebrate my birthday and were made to feel extra special by being upgraded into an amazingly luxurious suite. The hotel, appearing like a great white liner in the middle of Lake Pichola seduces the eye, the process of seduction is taken further with a welcome fit for a Maharani! The external appearance carries through the hotel's marble wings & sitting areas and includes a beautiful garden for guests to enjoy. We loved the heritage tour, the sunset boat cruise around the lake, the colourful and talented traditional dance performance in the internal courtyard, the delicious meals at the restaurants and the sheer luxury of the hotel and the pool. We found the city charming and easy to explore, thanks particularly to our friend and guide Akshay Sing Rao, a grandson of the Maharajas' court poet.
Everyone is looked after like family and nothing is too much trouble with every request greeted with a smile. Our special thanks to Maanas who was there always to help and Pramod the restaurant manager.
We will return as soon as we can. It must rate as one of the top hotels in the world.
