Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Taj Lake Palace sits on Lake Pichola in Udaipur – with panoramic views.

Rooms at Taj Lake Palace

The interiors are just as spectacular as the exterior, with sculpted marble columns, gilded mouldings, fretwork screens, stained glass windows and beautiful painted murals. The rooms and suites showcase their heritage while exhibiting contemporary style, including supremely comfortable beds, antique furnishings and plasma TVs, alongside stunning views over the lake – best enjoyed from your private terrace.

Food & drink

There are four restaurants to choose from, with cuisines from all over the world, including Italian and western cuisine as well as local specialities. Dine poolside, by the lily pond or on the rooftop – or pick a spot for a private table. 


Simply unwind and soak up the views, and if there’s anything you need, just ask – there is a 24-hour butler service here to take care of you.

Activities at Taj Lake Palace

In the morning, indulge in some yoga on the terrace. Explore bustling Udaipur on a guided heritage walk, followed by a glass of champagne at the bar. If you fancy shopping, your royal butler will accompany you on a trip to the colourful bazaars. Watch a cultural show in the courtyard, and enjoy a sunset cruise on a 150-year old Gangaur boat, complete with candlelight, as your oarsman guides you around the beautiful lake.
