Special Lunch at the Lake Palace Hotel

The beautiful Taj Lake Palace Hotel, in Udaipur (India), achieved a worldwide reputation for major ‘wow factor’ in the James Bond film Octopussy. Irrespective of its role in the film as Octopussy’s lair, the property is deserving of attention in its own right.

It was built by a prince in the 18th century as a place to bring ‘the ladies’ and have parties. It is still a place of pleasure, exclusivity and seclusion.

Tourists can see this hotel from the shoreline or water but only guests can land on the property and enjoy its mystique up close.

I was fortunate to have a lunch there as a guest of Taj hotels so I got to see all of the wonderful rooms ands suites, restaurants, spa and other facilities, then enjoy a gorgeous meal while looking out over the water. Here are some shots from the experience.
