What more can be said about this hotel.
The Taj lake palace is all that and a bag of chips.
I had an extra day and decided to spend it at the Taj.
Arriving by car to the dock one is greeted warmly and the boat ride out to the property builds the anticipation. Upon seeing the hotel it is a fantasy. The hotel took my breath away. The beautiful garden courtyard, the architecture, the views of the lake. When I got the room it was like a jewel box with the most splendid view.
I arranged through the concierge a half day guided driving tour of the local sights: several temples, palaces and others. All spectacular. I had the massage on the spa boat. Wow, really a unique experience and highly recommended. I caught the last bits of the tribal music and dancing show, really nice. The meals were all great but the highlight was the dinner at the Indian restaurant where I had the tasting menu, simply excellent array of perfectly done India dishes. Further the chef came out to check on everything.
In general the staff are quite acomodating and helpful. There were a few communicaton glitces howver, nothng major.
Among other things, the hotel upgraded me to a better room without asking for it. That was a very pleasant surprise. I was also upgraaded to a higher end car on the trip back to the airport.
Overall a truly spectacular hotel, beautiful and very relaxing. Highly recommended.
