Refurbished by the Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces group, the Taj Lake Palace provides every conceivable comfort without sacrificing an iota of its golden past. Rooms are designed to preserve the original decor and furnishings, but are upgraded with lush beds and the latest gadgets. The variety of royal suites, which used to house the Maharaja and his family as well as his guests, are spectacular – think grand spaces dressed in the finest tapestries and fittings, filled with gorgeous antiques and artworks.

The Taj Lake Palace also houses a pool with views of the old palace on the opposite bank, a small gym and Jiva Spa. The hotel has also launched the Jiva Spa Boat, which lets you enjoy traditional Indian massages while taking in the stunning views of Lake Pichola (on which the boat floats) and its surroundings.
