Delicately restored over 10 years, Taj Falaknuma Palace makes a royal impression on whoever steps upon its grounds. This marble palace is truly the definition of opulence.

The world's longest (101-seat) working dining table, a hilltop palace, arrival in an 19th century horsedrawn carriage...
From this scorpion-shaped palace, the Nizam once ruled over Hyderabad. Today, you can do your own King or Queen routine from the palace grounds, as it has been restored back to its original glory by Taj Hotels.

Up 2000 feet from the rest of the historically prominent city (and it is prominent: palaces are almost as common as scooters), the hotel awaits those looking to make an impression upon themselves or their cohorts.

Lush leather and wood furnishings under cut-glass chandeliers, and flanked by heavy curtains of the finest and most rare fabrics adorn most spaces. The main lobby however, is clean and pure in white marble, as is the grand staircase. Make sure to take a moment to admire the detail in its carvings. If you have a high-resolution camera, now is the time to use it.

Just 60 rooms are available, ranging from Luxury Rooms facing the courtyard, to the Grand Suite, complete with private pool, Jacuzzi, and fountain.

Walk the gardens or talk world affairs over billiards before settling down to a meal. Choose Celeste for fresh Mediterranean fare, or if you have a bit more time on your hands, opt for traditionally slow-cooked "Dum" at Adá.
