Taj Opens Another Palace Gem In 2010

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

In February 2010, Taj Hotels, Resorts & Palaces will open Falaknuma Palace or “Mirror of the Sky” in Hyderabad. Once the home of the ruling Nizam Mehboob Ali Khan, Taj has spent 10 years sensitively infusing new life into this 60-room palace replete with priceless art and artifacts. A blend of Italian and Tudor architecture, this scorpion-shaped palace hotel is made entirely of Italian marble and features furniture from Kashmir, French tapestries, Venetian chandeliers and intricate frescos.

Experience the imperial lifestyle of the dynasty that once governed the legendary city of Hyderabad. What were the haunts of visiting royalty, such as King George V and the last Russian Tsar, Nicholas II, will soon be yours to discover. Dine on royal Hyderabadi specialties, or savor the finest Italian cuisine beneath the stars. Taj’s Jiva Grande Spa complements the royal experience at Falaknuma Palace with signature ancient Indian therapies in exclusive treatment rooms overlooking cascading gardens.

Taj Falaknuma Palace is the ideal way to experience the myriad hues of fabled Hyderabad, which is now also a burgeoning IT hub. Guests can choose from a host of itineraries and journey across this legendary city and neighboring Deccan retreats, which are known for their monuments, modern shopping boulevards, vibrant bazaars and rich culture.
