For when the crowns come off—royal vacations worthy of a king.

Udaipur, India Maharana Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar

3 of 11

In the princely state of Rajasthan, the city of Udaipur is the jewel in the crown. The opulent city of lakes and hills has been called the Venice of the East and is a favorite exotic destination for those who live royally in the West. Queen Elizabeth, the royal families of Denmark and Spain, and Mick Jagger have all visited recently. The Lake Palace, centered in Lake Pichola and accessible only by boat, is owned by the Maharana, the monarch of Udaipur, but run as a hotel—the very image of imperial indulgence. (Doubles from $825.) —Sarah Rose
