I had always dreamed of staying here, and the reality was even better than I had hoped. Simply the most gorgeous hotel I have stayed in, anywhere, ever I don't regret a single rupee! Totally worth doing once in a lifetime.. or again and again if you can afford it.

Utterly idyllic setting, so beautiful and romantic, and every aspect of the hotel and its decor and furnishings is exquisite. The air even smells divine. Every bit of your visit feels special, from the moment you take the boat over the lake.

The staff are completely charming and will assist with your every request... you could get dangerously spoiled if you stayed for too long. I loved doing yoga on the terrace at dawn.. amazing views. At night the atmosphere is so beautiful... so many lovely touches like the candles and rose petals on the stairs. The lily pond and the area with trees are so gorgeous.. you want to wander round at all hours of the day and night to take in the atmosphere.

And considering it's one of the best hotels in the world, the prices for meals, services etc are pretty reasonable. I took a great boat trip round the lake at a modest price. It was the highlight of my trip to Rajasthan, and I'm already saving up for the next visit!

I have no other words to describe this magnificent property.

The Location Location Location is nothing but Jaw dropping.

The experience right from the Boat ride to the tasteful Rajasthani room, the experience was nothing short of awesome.

The cherry on the pudding was the lovely dinner we had at the Roof Top Restaurant. Don't miss it.

The staff was true to the Taj tradition and values. Every one from the Moustachioed Doorman, the Rose Petal showers to the charming Hostesses and the quietly efficient staff made our stay memorable.

Our room facing the City Palace was something we couldn't take our eyes off. We stayed up late at night just seeing the magnificent vista.

The flautist playing gently in the morning made it a piece if Heaven

Do please ensure that once in your lifetime you stay here.

Ever since I saw the corny James Bond movie, but heard the palace was a hotel- I knew I had to go there. Finally had the opportunity this year - and I was not disappointed. One of the most gloriously romantic settings I have ever been in. Met at the airport with towels, drinks, and a porter to carry our bags. Reasonable trip to the Kings Palace shoreside, where we paused before getting on the short boat ride to the Lake Palace itself. That and the rose petal arrival set the tone. Wonderful suites - stunning history and architecture. Beautiful gardens, that were havens of peace and quiet. Service that exceeded anything experienced to date. Loved it. Food - great. , with a good mix of flavors and ethnicities. The roof top (Western) restaurant looking out over the town was stunning. Superb service (flaming torches and braziers ferried around to make us comfortable). It's described as a fairytale and its an accurate assessment. Two other good restaurants - one Rajasthani, one mixed. We had an anniversary at the end of our stay, and they decorated our room with flower petals and a really nice cake...!
My only slight quibble was the tea - contrary to just about every other Taj hotel I have been at (around 5 or 6) - the tea was quite thin and watery... Go figure. So if you want a spell of total and utter sybaritic luxury - go for it...
