Taj Lake Palace
A 250-year-old white marble palace located right in the middle of Lake Pichola (guests take a boat to and from the hotel), the Taj Lake Palace is one of the most memorable places to stay in India. We recommend staying in a suite to get the full “Lake Palace experience” — suites are decorated with rich silks, lovely murals, and ornate wooden furniture that pay homage to the building’s rich and storied history. Touches like inlaid glass floral motifs around the doorways demonstrate the care that goes into even the smallest details.
Sample some of the Indian and international cuisine served at the three restaurants: Amrit Sagar, Jharokha, and Neel Kamal. The Jiva Spa offers Indian rejuvenation therapies ranging from aromatherapy massages to Ayurveda-based techniques.
