The oldest of these palaces, Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, is situated on a small island in the middle of Lake Pichola. With unparalleled views of the waters, each of its suites distinguishes itself by capturing different moods from across different periods of history. The hotel also boasts of a unique Jiva Spa boat that offers a range of treatments inspired by old Indian healing, wellness and beauty secrets.
Located in the capital of the Rajasthan state is Rambagh Palace, the former residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Walk from room to room amongst rich textures, opulent furnishings and exquisite objects d'art. Step out into expansive, ornamental gardens arranged in brilliant symmetry. Retire to rooms that were once the sanctuaries of kings, princes and their guests. Rambagh Palace exudes an unmistakable sense of history and is an architectural masterpiece that transcends time.
Perched high above the city of Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace is the last of the great palaces of India. Named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, this golden yellow sandstone monument was conceived on the grandest possible scale, in the fashionable Art Deco Style of that time. After 15 years in construction, the 347 room palace was finally completed in 1943 and has served as the principal residence of the Jodhpur royal family since.
Falaknuma Palace is also known as the 'mirror of the sky' because at 2000 feet, it was built in the clouds and reflects the ever-changing moods of the sky. Set amidst 32 acres of land and spread over 19400 square meters the palace is a standing testimony to the famed life and times of the Nizams of Hyderabad. The legendary Taj Hospitality now recreates an experience that can only be described as deliberately lavish.
