Kensington features literally thousands of incredible hotels, lodges, palaces, luxury camps and properties within our portfolio and sometimes even the best get lost amongst the crowd.  What type of Travel Company would we be if we didn’t bring them to your attention?  In order to prevent this from happening in the future, we’ll share a selection of our favorite places to stay here on the Kensington Tour’s Blog.  Discover properties so enchanting you’d think they only exist in your dreams.  Please respect that every traveler’s taste is different and that the right hotel can be a destination in itself!

Taj Lake Palace Travelers will feel as though they’ve been transported into an exotic fairytale as they cruise the green waters of Udaipur’s Lake Pichola, set amongst the majestic backdrop of the Aravalli Mountains, towards a mystical white floating palace.  In reality, the Taj Lake Palace resides on a four acre island, the sunlight reflecting off the water just plays surreal tricks with your eyes.  This 250-year-old former palace is one of India’s most photographed hotels.  It was built of polished white marble in 1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II, 62nd successor to the royal dynasty of Mewar and descendants of the Sun God – after watching the lake turn to gold at sunset this is a legend any traveler will believe! Look Forward To: Commencing your stay with a shower of rose petals, champagne spa, honeymoon surprises, suites with swings, floating picnics, mouth-watering cuisine & hauntingly beautiful live music.
