Taj Falaknuma Palace,
India, Andhra Pradesh
Info : Taj Falaknuma Palace
No expense was spared to make Taj Falaknuma Palace a grand and imposing silhouette on the Hyderabad skyline. The palace took ten years to restore and was painstakingly filled with European antiques, chandeliers, art works, and treasures fit for royalty in the process. Its aim was to recreate the luxurious lifestyle of reigning Nizams and their VIP guests. As such, you can expect the highest level of opulence from the moment you arrive.
Hyderabad is a 400 year-old city famous for glamour, culture, art, and consumerism. If shopping is on the agenda, you’ll find fine collections of Indian perfumes, saris, and beautiful glass bangles. Visit the Charminar, the Mecca Masjid right next door, the grand Chowmahalla Palace, and the 13th century fort at Golconda. At the hotel, you can indulge in an Ayurvedic spa treatment, admire the tapestries and portraits on a hotel heritage walk, or poke through rare manuscripts in the palace library. Dress to the nines for fine dining or play it casual at dinner, whichever you prefer.
There are 60 rooms and suites in total at Falaknuma Palace, all of which are spacious and furnished with fine Italian marble, oak floors, and Colonial antiques. Book a Palace room for plenty of space and delightful touches such as hand-painted walls and beautiful mirror tiles in the bathroom.
Taj Falaknuma Palace is an opulent and flamboyant look at the glamour and splendour of a bygone era. This makes the hotel a particularly great choice for anyone who doesn’t mind a bit of ostentation.
Ultimate - There are very few hotels we would describe as 'ultimate'. Hotels in this category must have absolutely everything anyone could want and really be aiming for the stars. These hotels generally go well above and beyond and they would always be at the very top end of the market. These are for clients looking for that extra special place.
Eastern India is a great holiday - Calcutta vibrant, the Sunderbans peaceful, the mountains majestic and the monasteries interesting. I won't mention the roads!
