Hotel Lake Palace


The Lake Palace in Udaipur is a palace on an island in the middle of Lake Pichola girdled by hills. Lake Palace was built in 1754 by Maharana Jagat Singh II in Udaipur. This palace was earlier known as Jag Niwas and was named by Maharana Jagat Singh. Lake Palace was the Summer residence of the rulers of Mewar. This former summer residence of the Royal family has now been converted into a fabulous luxurious hotel. The Lake Palace Hotel is considered to be one of the best hotels in the world.

The Lake palace was built in the 17th century on a natural foundation of 4 acers of rock. The Maharana, ruler of Jaipur from 1628 to 1654, was very friendly with Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and encouraged his craftsmen to copy some of the glories of his incomparable buildings at Agra. The successive rulers held their regal Durbars in the courtyards. These courtyards are lined with columns, pillared terraces, fountains and gardens. The rooms are decorated with cusped arches, inland stones of pink, and green lotus leaves, intricate paintings and painted mirrors. There are various apartments like the Bada Mahal, Kush Mahal, Ajjan Niwas, Phool Mahal and Dhola Mahal in the palace.

The Pichola Lake surrounds the Lake Palace and rippling waves of the lake make the whole atmosphere very pleasant. All the luxuries of the Lake Palace have been utilized in making the hotel as attractive and comfortable as possible. Lake Palace Hotel houses 83 rooms including 17 beautiful suites and 53 Deluxe rooms. The rooms and the suites of the hotel are beautifully designed. Each suite have a particular theme and decorated with textiles and handicrafts of the region. The royal banquet rooms are now reception rooms, bars and restaurants. 

Tourists would feel like honoured guests of Maharana at this exquisite white marble palace that seems to float majestically on the still waters of Lake Pichola. If you also want to feel like the honoured guest then enjoy the stay in this luxurious hotel in Udaipur !
