You’ll trade your car for a horse and carriage at the gate of the Taj Falaknuma Palace, which crowns a hill above the city, and be showered with rose petals when you ascend the marble steps. After a 10-year restoration, this former palace of the Nizam of Hyderabad (once the world’s richest man) is now a living museum, with 60 opulent guest rooms done up in ivories and golds. Wander the property if you like: nothing is off limits, including the library of rare books. Adding to the fairy-tale setting, at sunset you’ll hear the lilting strains of a flute in the courtyard.

Room to Book:

The Charminar and Golconda suites, in the main palace, offer the most privacy.

Insider Tip:

If the two restaurants aren't enough to accommodate your traveling companions, consider booking the 101-seat dining table for an event; the room's magnificent acoustics were designed to ensure every whispered word can be heard around the table.
