Reviewed 8 July 2012

We ate lunch here and loved the lal maas. The cocktails were strong but yummy - recommend the lemongrass basil martini. Also had a chicken dish with gravy that was spicy - can't remember the name but it was good.

Stayed for 3 nights (for the price of 2), and received an upgrade as it was our honeymoon. Our room was fantastic, the hotel, landscaped grounds and various terraces are about the most stunning setting and we found the food delicious at all times. But it was the service that really stood out - the best we've ever had; incredibly attentive, friendly and stylish. Plus the entertainment is wonderful every day, especially the flutist in the morning.

Stand out moments - we recommend cocktails and cigar watching the sunset from the front terrace, as well as lazing by the pool all to ourselves. We were there during the quiet season though so imagine the hotel might not be quite as romantic. There was a bit of an incident with something too, but they offered us a free massage and dinner to make up for their mistake and we left very happy and privileged to have visited.

Room Tip: Spend extra, its worth it.

Beautifully located in the middle of a lake. Its a sper boat ride to the Lake Palace. Excellently managed by the Taj. The food is totally non spicy to suit the palate of international guests who outnumber the Indian Tourist. Make sure you ask for a Lake View Room -- not all rooms are.

Room Tip: Rooms with the Lake View are better

From the moment that we arrived at the Jetty check in, we knew that this experience would be memorable! The wonderful welcome from the staff, ease of check in and welcome drink were just for starters. Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent staff, and the room, gardens and public areas wonderful. Our visit was a total delight, and we shall certainly look forward to another one in the future.

Room Tip: Definatley a lake view, you think you are floating!

We chose Udaipur, where we went for Honeymoon too....The courtesies extended, the warmth of staff and the willingness to serve with a smile made our stay a very memorable one. The staff there were very alert and looked for customer preferences. A small incidence which touched us was was at the restaurant when during breakfast we requested for a dish which was unavailable at that point of time, but by evening time, it was made available while we were watching a dance performance there. Majorly, they remembered to wish us at midnight with a cake, they upgraded us for the entire stay at the hotel for three nights to a suite, they decorated the terrace for a private dining experience on the 30th, our night. All in all, I would say, they far exceeded our expectations and we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The kids flipped for the view the hotel rooms gave. Compliments to the management and the staff.

Room Tip: Get a lake view room, notwithstanding any other room is an experience too.

My initial contact to organise transfers from Mumbai then on to Jaipur was with Mr Rajesh Minhas, I was surprised how helpful and professional he was as this is something we do not usually entrust to hotel staff but his emails were prompt and he followed up by telephoning to confirm details so for the first time ever, we entrusted a total stranger to organise everything.
Effortlessly, everything fell into place, we were met at the airport, checked in and the room, food, service and every facet of the hotel has been of the same high standard initially set my Mr Minhas.
This is one of the best hotel experiences we have encountered, the staff seem to enjoy the work and look after a guests' needs without the drama and fakeness that some hotels bombard you with. Simple, polite and relaxed service cannot be valued but the Lake Palace has hit the button.

I must add, my only complaint is charging for internet. Hide it in the room cost please as charging for internet use is like charging for water or air!

My husband anb me celebrated our 10th wedding anniversarry in this hotel and we were very happy with our decision to celebrate it in india and have chosen this hotel for our special occassion .....right from our arrival at the airport to the room check in we were treated like a royal couple:)....the service in the restaurant is out of this world ,very caring and attentive staff ...we were taking day trip to ranakpur and the staff in the restaurant provided us with take away snacks for our journey .....overall the hotel staff makes you very comfortable and are always there for your smallest needs ,for eg my hubby needed vaseline for his lips and i forgot to carry one we just had to mention that we are in need of one though the hotel didnt have one but one of the staff came in and gave what was his ....was truly blown away by their hospitality ....
