“Rudely greeted by the security guard”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We went to have lunch...and were rudely greeted by the security guard who told us that only hotel guests were allowed into the private road. He did not even ask if we were guests...how did he know?? Anyhow, we were surprised and disappointed with the inhospitable way we were handled...after that...who would stay? We ended up eating at renovated royal palace, also lake side, in town at a fraction of the price and as nice of a view and good food. We were grateful the drive into town gave us a sense of the beauty and atmosphere of this little Indian "Venice".

After two months in India, I can say that this is easily one of the nicest hotels in South Asia. Great attention to detail at every turn, from your first arrival celebration, to the fact that every staff person know your name before you've even been introduced. Udaipur is a very fun, beautiful city to visit. Even if it were not, however, it would be worth the trip to stay at the Taj Lake Palace.

Room Tip: Splurge for a lakefront room, preferably facing the City Palace.

I stayed one night with my friend. This hotel must be the best hotel in India or in the world. It seems to cost a lot but it was quite valuable if comparing the quality of this property and nice staffs.

3 weeks ago we stayed at Lake Palace for a night and got engaged there! We would like to thank all the staff who provided us with such an unforgettable experience during every moment of our stay. I couldn't imagine a more romantic and beadutiful place to have our engagement!

We arrived with train 6 am in the morning and immediately received warm welcome from the pick-up service. We got our room right away (not to forget also mentioning that we were also allowed for late check-out due to our flight schedule). Our room was super elegant with lake view. Every time we went away, our clothes got immediately folded and a small card/snack was placed in our room. We booked private dinning on the terrace, highly recommended! The view was so beautiful and peaceful that it almost felt surreal. My boyfriend claimed that the staff didn't know he was gonna propose at dinner, but still they decorated the whole terrace with flowers and candles and were being very attentive the entire evening. The next day we also tried the SPA. We tried the couple message option, very relaxing. You get a bottle of champagne at the end, which was included in the price (We were not sure of that). We got to drink the champagne in a jacuzzi with again very romantic view, which was also part of the package.

All in all, we would like to highly recommend Taj for a romantic stay or relaxation after visiting busy Indian cities. You will not be disappointed!

I spent 2 nights in Lake Palace as a lone traveller. It was an wonderful experience. Staff are amazing nothing to much trouble, treated like Royalty from the moment you arrive. The view over Lake Pitchola and the city palace in the evening was breathtaking. It was my birthday and they surprised me with a birthday cake beautifully presented under a Rajasthani umbrella. I have visited Taj hotels in the past, but this is the best ever! The Architecture is stunning words can't describe how beautiful it is.
The heritage tour, cultural show,
pool and spa were all top notch.
Can't wait to return in the future.

We spent three nights at the Lake Palace Hotel during the Holi Festival. All of the good things the other reviews have said about the Lake Palace are true. One night we attended the Holika Dahan Ceremony at the City Palace. While it was a tourist oriented event it sure was impressive. The next night we dined at the roof top restaurant at the hotel and watched the full moon rise over the City Palace. The food was very good but the setting and view were exceptional. The staff at the hotel was also very gracious when we returned from the city covered in multi-colored powder after attending a party celebrating Holi--even though it meant extra work for them cleaning the trail we left behind us! This may be the most special stay we have ever had at a hotel. It is a splurge but it is worth it.

My recent visit to udaipur was as dilightful as it could have been all thanks to the Taj Lake Palace.
The hotel is situated in the middle of lake pichola. Its a sight of a life time from the hotel room.
Staff was pleasent.
Food is awsome.

Everything about this hotel is beyond comparision.

Room Tip: All rooms will make you feel like a king.
