The Lake Palace maxes out the romance factor with its pretty wedding cake peaks and curves. At night the moon plays luminescent on its white marble walls as golden room light seeps out through the carved pattern windows. Dreamed up by the Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1746 it is a four acre island unto itself set amid the quiet lapping of Lake Pichola. Much has been set up to help you not miss the mainland: heritage champagne walks, private puppet shows, multiple dining locations (rooftop to lily pond courtyard), Jiva spa and workout and even fireworks on request. Descendents of the original Royal Butlers keep traditions alive amid the host of modern comforts on offer. And if you really do need an away-Palace day trip, vintage cars await you across the lake.
