What: A white marble fairytale palace that is without a doubt one of the most romantic hotels in the world.

Where: Floating on the waters of Lake Pichola the hotel acts as the gatekeeper to the city of Udaipur in India.

Why: Built in 1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II, the Taj Lake Palace Hotel can only be described as majestic. Made up of only 83 rooms and suites, the detail that has gone into its creation is astounding. Opulent murals, rich fabrics and wonderfully hand crafted wood furniture cover the interior of the hotel, creating an air of lavishness and opulence. With views of the lake and spectacular Aravalli mountains from the elaborately decorated rooms, each of which are fitted with ivory inlaid chairs, Waterford chandeliers and stained glass windows, guests feel as though they have adopted a life of regal splendor for their stay.
A sumptuous Taj spa offers the necessary treatments to unwind, and the myriad other activities and facilities that are of course part of the Taj Hotel experience are provided.
