Udaipur, Rajasthan

The property: A truly palatial hotel, whose 87 rooms and suites occupy a 30-acre compound of soaring sandstone turrets and domes, marble arches, vast tiled pools, and painstakingly manicured gardens.

The location: Set right on the banks of sparkling Lake Pichola, the hotel overlooks both the Aravalli Mountains and the latticed towers of Udaipur's most beautiful historic landmark, the 16th-century City Palace.

Rooms to Book: Premier Lake View rooms have private patios, which lead to semiprivate swimming pools surrounded by cascading bougainvillea.

Don't Miss: A private dinner for two on the lake (literally, on a floating pontoon lit by flickering lanterns).
