Guest reviews for Taj Lake Palace

5 out of 5

Dream come true!!!

Ever since I had seen Octopussy, it was my dream to stay at the Lake Palace ( now Taj Lake Palace), the summer home of the erstwhile royal family of Udaipur and thanks to our friends who gifted us a day's stay at the 250 year old Lake Palace (floating in the middle of the Lake Pichola), we had the most romantic night at one of the most romantic places in the world. The staff here is attentive, well-mannered that too without the cost of being intrusive. Special thanks to a female staff member who helped me drape a sari (traditional Indian outfit). The rooms have graceful interiors with all the modern facilities. We were pleased to see a chocolate cake with a personal message in our room. One can choose from the types of pillows, blankets which makes the stay as comfortable as possible. We had the breakfast in the coffee shop facing the lake where the food was delicious and the service courteous. My childhood fantasy of being treated like a princess came true at this beautiful place. Since one night is too short a time, on our next stay at the Lake Palace, being a foodie couple we wish to eat at the Lily Pond, the international restaurant ( that is located on the terrace). How can we not hope to have a romantic candle-lit poontun dinner. The poontun literally soars in the lake. Have you read about it somewhere??? maybe Mills & Boons. And if this is not enough budget permitting we look forward to experience a romantic night in the royal Ghanghor boat, where a ferry follows the boat to take you to the Palace in case you need to answer the natures call. Now thats what we in India call living life king size!!!
