Laze beside the swimming pool, glass in hand, and look out over the beautiful Lake Pichola – and feel your soul relax. The timeless Aravalli Mountains provide a majestic backdrop, as you muse over the difficult - but vitally important - conundrum of which of the Palace’s fine restaurants you’ll dine in tonight.

Or whether you’ll take another swim, or simply stroll off for an extended pampering session in your own private spa tent overlooking the lake.

Of course, if you’re feeling slightly less languid, there is plenty to see and do. The Leela Palace puts you conveniently close to quite an array of magnificent palaces, historic memorials, sight-seeing opportunities and interesting towns. Reason enough to make sure it’s part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India.
