Lake Palace Hotel, Udaipur

Client: Taj Hotels, Resorts and Palaces

 Project: Lake Palace Hotel, Udaipur, India

 Launched: Completed in Phases 2001 – 2004


The Lake Palace Hotel is a vision of white marble, spread across a four-acre island, in the middle of Lake Pichola. The palace was built in 1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II, 62nd successor to the royal dynasty of Mewar. Set amid awe-inspiring fairytale gardens, this 250-year old palace may be the most romantic hotel in the world. As a testimony to courtly love, the palace brims with princely details including marble pillars, ornate glasswork, intricate paintings, and much, much more.

JPA undertook the full interior renovation of 18th Century Maharana’s palace comprising 85 rooms and suites, 3 food and beverage outlets and spa.  During the concept phase of the project our senior designers spent time in Udaipur and elsewhere in Rajasthan researching local crafts, skills and artifacts. Many details found in JPA’s designs are referenced from the original palace structure or from the adjacent City Palace. Likewise the materials used are in keeping with the original building.
