What other hotels can boast the fact they float on a lake. The Taj palace floats on Lake Pichola and was originally made for a summer retreat. Every room has an amazing view some looking into the courtyard for a view of the lilly pond others facing outward for a wonderful view of the lake. The rooms are all modern with some old style décor, but do have modern amenities such as air conditioning and satellite tv. This hotel never sleeps most of its services are 24 hours around the clock. Do not pass up taking a dip in the beautiful swimming areas the hotel has.
