The Falaknuma is no ordinary hotel stay, its an experience in every sense of the term. From the Jaguar that fetched us at the airport and drove us till the entrance of the palace - a clock tower, then a transfer to the reception area in a carriage drawn by 2 stallions with shimmering black coats - this was only the start. We already felt so regal and special.. We stayed in the magnificent Charminar suite overlooking the whole city of Hyderabad with its lights twinkling in the distance, hearing the entire city reverberate to the call to prayer in the evening. The food at both the restaurants -Celeste (Western/Mediterranean) and Adaa - (Indian) was delicious and innovative ..We finally had Hyderabadi Biryani in Hyderabad which was incredible as was the Patthar ka gosht ( lamb cooked on stone) The Taj group has reached the pinnacle of its hospitality with this palace - its staff were amazingly attentive and discreetly intuitive - taking the phrase - your wish is our command to a whole new level. The treatments at the Jiva spa were very good too. A guided tour of the palace made us feel that we were walking through the pages of history - Mr Prabhakar the guide was an excellent raconteur. The emphasis at the palace seems to be - make a guest's stay magical and memorable and they have scored commendably on both counts. We had tears in our eyes when we walked down the marble staircase..and from nowhere, a shower of rose petals rained down on us as we stepped into the carriage once again this time drawn by 2 white horses, back to the clock tower, back into the gleaming Jaguar as we regretfully drove back to the airport. Just waiting to get back here again!
