Description

This magical hotel was first built as a residence for the ruling family in 1743, making it some 33 years older than the US. Despite no longer housing royalty, the building retains all of its majesty inside and out; the white marble facade appears to float in the center of Lake Pichola. Battery-powered boats transport guests over calm waters and into this fairy-tale property. The Shambhu Prakash Presidential Suite is a resplendent chamber fit for any king or queen. Plush drapes and high arches give the 1,734-sq-ft space an authentic regality that is impossible to replicate in a modern hotel. Breathe in the morning air on your balcony that overlooks the mystical lake, and take advantage of the services of a 24-hour butler.
