Lake Palace Udaipur
Lake Palace is a luxury hotel, which has 83 rooms and suites featuring white marble walls. The Lake Palace is located on the island of Jag Niwas in Lake Pichola, Udaipur, India, and its natural foundation spans 4 acres (16,000 m2). The hotel operates a speed boat which transports guests to the hotel from a jetty at the City Palace.
Lake Palace floats in the center of Lake Pichola. It was the official residence of all the rulers during winters. The palace's decadent reputation was cemented when the James Bond film Octopussy was filmed on its premises. Occupying a four-acre island in Pichola Lake, the hotel appears to float on turquoise water.
