Taj Lake Palace Udaipur Ranked 3rd Best Hotels in the World in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2019

When over six lakh readers from across the world submitted ratings and comments for selecting their favourite travel destinations and brands, Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur got the third position in the list of top 10 best hotels in the World.

The global luxury and lifestyle magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, has combined the annual readers’ surveys in the U.S. and the U.K. into one Global Readers’ Choice Awards List.

The palatial hotel, undoubtedly, deserves every bit of this position with its awe-inspiring architecture and hospitality. The guests are treated like royals from the very first moment they enter into the property. The location of the hotel further adds to its charisma giving a feeling of a walk into the history and an experience of unique service that brings the “Tajness” to life.

This all, of course, comes with a price. One night stay at this luxurious property of Udaipur can cost somewhere between INR 80,000 to 11 lacs, depending on the business season.

However, for general people, watching this beauty during the boat ride in Lake Pichola is another experience especially during evening and night, when the property is lit with mesmerizing lights.

The hotel rose to another level of fame after the famous James Bond movie, Octopussy, was shot here in 1984. Post that, many Bollywood movies made The Taj Lake Palace their shooting location.
