Taj Lake Palace
A tie between two Taj places, Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur is considered as the most romantic hotel you can visit in India. Its grand presidential suite rates at Rs 600,000 or $13,000. It also has a Luxury Double Bedroom, which is a bit cheaper and still acquires all essential amenities and services. This room is approximately 36,000 rupees or $810. Being the country’s iconic hotel, it’s not a question why many people are willing to tweak their budgets just to save up for their stay at Taj Lake Palace.
Another fortress on the rise is the Leela Palace. Building the entire place cost 18 billion rupees and its room price currently starts at $560 or Rs. 25,000 for the Grand Deluxe Room.

Spas, rooftop infinity pool, and tea lounges are only few of the many other facilities you can enjoy while staying at Leela Palace.
This hotel is situated at Gurgaon, India’s major shopping and business district. It is also labeled as the country’s only luxury hotel with an exclusive cigar lounge. The presidential suite alone costs Rs 3, 00,000 but the features are priceless. A spacious living room, two bedrooms, and a dining room with all the latest appliances – what more can you ask for? Oberoi, Gurgaon also has a more contemporary structure as well as inside design, making you feel the modern side of India.

Just like Oberoi Gurgaon, this hotel also has a modern theme and it allows you to overlook one of the country’s highlight, the Queen’s Necklace.

Most people say that the best places in the world are next to priceless. After visiting these hotels in India, you will definitely agree with such thought.
