Taj Lake Palace in Lake Pichola, Udaipur

Octopussy's barge? Lake Pichola Udaipur
Accommodations at Taj Lake Palace, are as delightful as the exterior. Every one of our romantic rooms holds a story and among the most compelling is The Chandra Prakash Suite, meaning Lustre of the Moon. The decorative gilt moldings, sculpted marble columns, and fine fretwork screens impressed even the Maharaja who held court in this very room in the 1930s.

There are countless unique experiences to be had. Sail into a purple sunset on a 150-year old Gangaur complete with candlelight and resplendently dressed oarsmen. Indulge in a heritage walk with an escort followed by a glass of sparkling wine at the bar. Soak in the sounds and sights of the city as your royal butler accompanies you on a shopping trip. In this royal dream, anything is possible.

The ultimate Octopussy experience, your arrival by boat
For visiting Lake Palace locations from Octopussy it is easiest to stay at the hotel itself, although it is also possible to visit the hotel for dinner (if you have a reservation). If you are staying at the hotel, the romantically inclined can have dinner on a pontoon on the lake. It sure is a great experience.

The swimming pool area has superb views of the City Palace, from an angle featured in the film. On the upper level is a terrace that the hotel uses as a dining area. This is where Octopussy and Bond share a romantic drink. From here you can also see the Monsoon Palace in the hills beyond the new Oberoi hotel on the opposite side of the lake to the town. In the centre of the complex is the beautiful lily pond that Octopussy emerges from after Bond infiltrates the island.
