“Majestic hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 children (ages 12 and 9). From the very start - arrival at the boat jetty - the experience of this hotel is grand. Greeting staff and front desk (Mercy) were so welcoming and gracious. Our room didn't have a great view of the lake but was very spacious (extra space for a separate cot + a seating area). The rooms are all tastefully decorated - palace style. The shower is a bit cramped but there was a beautiful tub. There was also a leak from the tub that was a bit unexplained - but it didn't take away from the experience; and given that this was actually the residence of the royal family, plumbing is probably a bit out-dated, so we didn't mind.
Housekeeping is excellent with extra special touches like lavender pockets in shoes and ties for phone cords!
The restaurant manager at Jharokha is amazing ! He goes out of his way to ensure your experience is excellent. Narendra was a great help too. Excellent food - especially breakfast. And one morning, the chef himself came to our table and offered to make us anything we wanted ! Truly a service experience that was unmatched.
The pool is lovely and the only place that we saw hot tubs.
Beautiful hotel with top of the line service at all levels - we felt like royalty.

From the moment we arrived at the jetty to be whisked over Lake Pichola to the Taj Lake Palace we knew this would be an unforgettable trip. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were showered with rose petals and shown around the hotel. Our room was fantastic and the service was impeccable. Breakfast served was the best I have ever had, with such a large variety it was difficult choosing at times! Our lovely server, Rose took the best care of us and ensured our tea was to our taste every morning. It is small touches like this that make for an even better stay. The pool and lounge area is a great place to kick back and relax. The location is magical, the heritage tour is a great insight, the evening dance performance is fantastic and the dinner is also excellent! We requested a DVD one evening and it arrived on a tray with a couple of cokes and popcorn - such a great touch! The early morning yoga session is also great if you can wake up early! I hope to be back one day!

The Taj Lake Palace Udaipur is the best hotel experience I have had so far in my life.
In my opinion, it is deservedly one of the top handful of hotels in the world.

It is an absolutely stunning location - An old palace in the middle of a lake that has been converted into a luxury hotel. You reach it by a motorized Gondola. Only the hotel guests are allowed on the island hotel palace. This adds to the exclusivity and privacy of the locale. Upon arrival you are subject to the best hospitality that i have ever seen in a hotel. Every person knows you from the moment you step foot and you are made to feel very special. Talk about personal touch!

Usually when i stay in a high end hotel I prefer to eat outside as the food tends to be better for the money. But this was one hotel where I made it a point to eat at the hotel as much as possible. The breakfast buffet is excellent. Delicious Indian preparations are made to order and served hot. Try the Chole Battura. We dined mostly at the Jharoka - International dining in a casual setting - although we stuck to Indian food mostly. Upon the recommendation of a fellow guest we also dined at the semi formal setting of the Neel Kamal. The food was more expensive - but the Rajasthani Thali was a once in a lifetime experience. Fantastic! I took a special liking to the laal Maas - a spicy Rajasthani meat curry.

There was entertainment every evening - from a local Rajasthani troupe. It was a good time to grab a drink and relax. The cocktails were pretty good and served with complimentary snacks.

We had a room with views of the city palace on the banks of the lake. It was a view to kill for! Every morning we woke upto a gorgeous sunrise. Every evening the grandeur of the sunset was reflected on the city palace opposite us. There was a nice bay window in the room. I sat by the window reading books for several hours.

The wifi is excellent and this was the first hotel where i saw the hotel being careful about the internet security. Upon logging in for the first time, the guests had to set their own personal password before using the internet.

There is a beautiful garden in the middle of the island hotel. A nice place to sit and relax or have a smoke if you are so inclined. There are many doves here - and it is relaxing to sit here and watch the doves with a live flutist playing for you from the hotel rooftop.

There is round the clock gondola service to and fro the lakeshore.

All in all a most wonderful and memorable experience we shall never forget. We hope to be back again some day.

The hotel is good for visiting to enjoy history of Mewar dynasty. The size of the hotel may not be big, but the restaurant has excellent view. The night time here is stunning. I really like the staff at the restaurants. However, some of staff at the reception is just average, comparing to Leela and Oberoi. I stayed at both before Taj Lake, so I feel kind of different here for the lady who brought me to the room. She is just average. Overall, the hotel is a very good one.

We spent three nights there this week. Two couples on a tour around Rajasthan.

This place is amazing. The setting is unbelievable and the staff are extremely good. The food was the best Indian or Western we have ever had in the country over numerous visits.

Of course, the fact that it featured in a James Bond movie, or that it was a real palace, simply adds to the joy.

Udaipur is a lovely city too, clean and less frantic than others. The night time view from the palace is simply superb.

If you can afford it, stay !

Room Tip: Go for a room above the standard, they looked quite small.
