“Amazing property and wonderful time spent there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We visited Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur earlier in July to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. Simply amazed by the property with so much history related to it, loved the hospitality of staff, food and we had a luxury room which was large and very well furnished. I booked a candle light dinner at Mewar Terrace which was unbelievable in regard to the view, environment, food and the host, Amit, was really skilled and we had a joyful experience with him. Want also to thank Abdul for great follow up and great hospitality.

Overall, it's a experinece for life and we will certainly come back again. Will recommend this place to everyone out there who want's to experience luxury at very best.

With its setting in the middle of Lake Pichola and with the backdrop of the Aravalli mountains on one side and the City Palace complex on the other, the Lake Palace has on offer romantic dining experiences and the Mewar Terrace offers a spectacular vista. Amit and Abdul are delighted to see your review and it will doubtless inspire them.

It was a wonderful experience . I went there for 3 nights . It's a magical place . The best thing about it , is you are living in the middle of the lake . The staff was very friendly . The room was extremely clean and beautiful . The views were excellent . It's a magical experience .The food was very nice , You are welcomed by rose flower showers. The terraces give a beautiful 360 View of Udaipur . All the meals were very appetizing . In short , if you go there ,, you are served like a royal king :) . Cant forget that experience . They have all kinds of activities for both kids and adults . It is a very relaxing hotel . It should be rated as a 6* Hotel . They gift babies soft toys and teenagers some books , e.t.c.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good . But if you take a suite , you would get extra services .

We had visited on eve of my wife's birthday for 3 nights 4 days package as being a member of Taj inner circle Gold. This was our first visit to Lake Palace. Every moment was memorable by there staff. We had a Gr8 pickup from airport by Tata Jaguar car to the Hotel. From there a beautiful boat ride to the property. On entrance greeted with rose petals. We had a lovely room with a dresser. There breakfast and dinners were awesome. Even after every dinner we had awesome desserts served to our room. I hosted my wife's birthday on their Terrace garden and the arrangement was superb. We had one of the best spa in their boat . A unique experience. We thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality. Loved the place, the property and their pampering. Love to visit sometime later with my kids. It calls for 7*

I took my girlfriend to this hotel on a recent trip to India and it lived up to all expectations. We were lucky enough to have a suite at the hotel and it was massive and so beautifully decorated/ furnished. The staff where what you come to expect from Taj and the food was second to none. One night we decided to take dinner on the private pontoon out on the lake, a chef and waiter bring you you meal and serve it in the most idyllic of setting. I would also recommend venturing into town and watching octopussy (James Bond) on a cheap rooftop restaurant over looking the lake , a wonderful experience. Overall this was a stay of a life time and we'll certainly be returning.

We were on a road trip from Mettupalayam in Tamil nadu to Manali Leh and Ladakh . On our way we taught we should celebrate our anniversary in a special way and hence we chose THE TAJ LAKE PALACE UDAIPUR LAKE PICHOLA. The stay was purely royal and one awesome hospitality from the royal welcome to the lavish exceptionally clean rooms and every detail of awesome food . To the lovely local entertainment every evening. The complimentary services are varied and excellent . Must mention the SPA the services were top of the line. Must try . SOME AWESOME HOLIDAY.
I must mention MEHUL 's great smiling detailed hospitality.

We were a group of four friends travelling together and had three rooms here for two nights and had a great time. Just arriving at the hotel is special, with a boat transfer across the lake from the hotel’s private jetty. On arrival we were showered with rose petals from the roof. We had a Palace room with lake views and it had a very romantic feeling about it with a lovely seating nook that gave us even better views of the lake and the City Palace. After coming from very large rooms at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Udaipur our room here felt small in comparison but in reality it was bigger than a normal hotel room and was very beautiful.
It rained some of the time we were in Udaipur and one afternoon rather than continue our sightseeing we retired to the hotel pool. After a swim in the rain the weather cleared and we decided to stay relaxing around the pool and beautiful hotel courtyard,
The service throughout the hotel was excellent. We had a wonderful time here at the Taj Lake Palace Hotel.

Room Tip: It's worth paying to make sure you have a lake view.

I cannot think of ever being so moved by a hotel as this one. If you ever have dreams of feeling like a real princess, Taj Lake Palace is the property to come to. Everything, right from their beautiful pickup point, to their lovely boat with brass fittings, to their entry (when we entered the hotel they had arranged for rose petals to fall from the terrace, literally like they were falling from the sky). From that moment on, I was in love. This is an immaculately restored palace, with all it's grandeur and glory intact. I cannot even begin to imagine how much more luxuriant this place would have been a century back, and how many a love stories between royals blossomed here. The staff here is really courteous, and very helpful. The rooms are gorgeous, you'd think that so much colour would intimidate the senses but it's done most tastefully. The palace grounds, including the lily pond, the many jharokhas, the beautiful beautiful land scaping, and the stunning white facade, all are reminiscent of the glory of this region. I cannot thank the staff enough, who woke up at 4.30 am to send us off with a hearty breakfast. For now, Lake Palace is that tiny jewel of an experience that you can keep preserved in memory forever, as the time you were made to feel like a royal.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the first floor on the City Palace side. This palace gets lit up in the night and loo...
