Built in 1793 as a former royal residence, many of the original features are still present including the pristine whitewashed fountains and golden antiques and the flourishing gardens with pillared terraces surrounding a magnificent courtyard where peacocks roam freely. The rooms offer royal inspired décor with stunning views of either the lake or gardens with the blooming lily pond. Each room is unique in size but is clad with local Indian silks and grand furniture. Opt for a Grand Royal Suite where you’ll feel the epitome of royalty, featuring high ceiling walls with elaborate glasswork, and ornate paintings with marble en-suite bathrooms, rainfall showers and crystal chandeliers.

The incomparable location provides the perfect backdrop for the exquisite cuisines at the impressive selection of restaurants, with multiple cuisines of Indian, Western, Italian and Asian all on the menu. Opt for a sundowner on the rooftop terrace whilst soaking in the magical atmosphere and enjoy panoramic views over the lake to the city. The butlers are descendants of former royal butlers ensuring you’ll have no shortage of service and be treated in the unforgotten traditional way. The spa at the Taj Palace is an experience like no other. Pamper yourself into a state of pure relaxation with carefully created treatments that draw on the ancient wellness heritage of India.

Why we love it

If you fancy a magical evening seeming as though you’re living a fairy tale, the butlers are on hand to create you a private dining area on the roof terrace. Keeping in with royal traditions, enjoy a candle lit dinner whilst enjoy fine cuisine whilst gazing over the unique and breath-taking surroundings.
