“Amazing hotel”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Amazing hotel, white marble beautiful setting in the middle of a lake wonderful staff. Have stayed twice, the first time we were tracking around India so not dressed in best of clothes ! We were treated like royalty everyone exceptionally pleasent and friendly, the second time for our fifth wedding anniversary which we told them they put us lots of ' extras ' at no cost in our room. Yes it is expensive but well worth the cost and less than some London hotels. We had a meal on floating platform on the lake, it was decorated with flowers etc just the two of us with our own staff waiting on us AMAZING

The Taj Lake Palace is an amazing place. We had a butler, Moulton Brown toiletries, jacuzzi, dining room, complimentary homemade chocolates and brandy, wall sized plasma screen, white marble staircase. A variety of dressing gowns, including silk, and slippers. Food was wonderful and the entertainment - shadow dancers and Indian dancing. The whole experience was well worth £650.00 per night for three people with two meals. You can get cheaper rooms though. The views are worth the money!

Room Tip: Take plenty of money or go for a cheaper room rather than an apartment.

Me and my wife decided to visit the Lake palace towards end of September (Sept 29 - Oct 1, 2012). The palace is located in the center of the Udaipur lake. We received a warm welcome from the staff, with shower of rose petals and a traditional Indian welcome.

There are couple of boats maintained by the Taj group which ferries from the pickup point to the hotel. The boat ride is comfortable and the hotel takes care of guest safety by ensuring all guests have life vests on them.

The rooms are old but well maintained. The hotel had wide variety of things to do for us as a couple and we did not get bored at all. While at the lake palace, please take guided tour of the hotel palace and also a guided tour of the lake.

If you have the money, then the spa boat is a different experience all together. The Gangaur boat is also a unique experience of its own. We saw both the boats but did not experience any of those.

If you are planning a trip to Udaipur I would surely recommend the Lake Palace.

without doubt one of the great hotels of the world. The views are magnificent particularly dinner at the Bhirao restauarant. The staff are brilliant and theambiance magical. It isn't cheap but no one ever said that excellence came cheap.
A magnificent stay from start to finish

We stayed for two nights at the Lake Palace. We decided on staying at the Lake Palace due to its history and location. It was the right decision. The hotel and the service is truly outstanding. Right from our arrival at Udaipur airport until our departure to Jaipur, the staff was very attentive to our needs. We should make special mention of Ayush and Rahul who went above and beyond the call of duty. My daughter celebrated her 8th birthday there and the staff made it a truly memorable experience.

When booking our trip to India, this was always planned to be our highlight, and it certainly did not disappoint. Everything this establishment does is to perfection, the staff, the food, the ambiance and the most incredible location. They gave a special unexpected treats to celebrate a significant occasion, and momentos when we left. We only stayed to nights and that was the only issue we had.... It was not long enough.
