The soaring dome and minarets of the Taj Mahal are visible from every room of this extravagant Moorish-and-Moghul-inspired palace (which sits just 600 meters away from the monument). Over-the-top grandiosity pervades here: the property is a fantasia of sprawling tiled lounging terraces, fountains, reflecting pools, and gardens dripping with flowers; the 108 airy guest rooms are filled with inlaid wood, marble, and silken fabrics. But the most truly romantic feature here is also the simplest: the ubiquitous, stunning views of the world’s greatest architectural testament to love.
