Built on top of a small island in 1746, the structure was purposely designed without any land visible beneath or around it, creating a surreal and enchanting atmosphere.

It has since been converted into a luxury hotel, complete with fountains, gardens, and other palatial amenities. The hotel became hugely popular after playing a starring role in the 80s James Bond film Octopussy, and after a loving restoration and a renewed emphasis on quality service thereafter, it was reinstated as the best heritage hotel in Udaipur.

The Palace was originally the summer residence of the Royal Family of Udaipur and is a beautiful combination of white marble and mosaic. The rooms and suites are beautifully appointed, with various dining options and sit out areas.

Why We Love It

Arguably the most romantic hotel in India, this gorgeous marble palace appears to hover on the surface of Udaipur's Lake Pichola.
