We’ve headed to India once again, where we’ve found the magnificent Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur, Rajahstan. Set right in the middle of the calm Lake Pichola, overlooking the mountains of Aravalli, the resort is 30 minutes west of the Dabok Airport. Upon arrival at the shores of the artificial Pichola Lake, on a national highway, guests are being escorted to the hotel by boat.
The city of Udaipur alone is one extremely beautiful architectural marvel, let alone the majestic Taj Lake Palace. Resembling 16th century Indian aristocracy comfort styles, it is an architectural wonder. The Lake Palace was finished back in 1749 by successors to the Mewar dynasty, also known as the descendants of the Sun God.
It boasts with state of the art luxury, providing immediate and private access to vintage cars, meeting rooms, banquet halls, secretarial services, copiers, laptops and Internet.
With no importance whether the stained glass panels and antique swing of the Khush Mahal or the gilt moldings and golden chandeliers of the Chandra Prakash, every little bit of space has been carefully planned and decorated.
Furthermore, there is absolutely no room to not overlook the superb lake.
There are all sorts of activities provided, courtesy of Taj Lake Palace, including horseback riding, trekking, Jiva Spa treatments, tranquil Heritage Champagne Walks throughout the area and outdoor entertainment.
