Taj Falaknuma Palace

Perched 2,000 feet above the city of Hyderabad is Taj Falaknuma Palace, a jewel amongst the clouds. Built in 1894, it is the former palace of the Nizam, rumoured to be the richest man in the world at one time. Overlooking the twinkling City of Pearls, this enchanting palace exudes romance and grandeur that take one back to when the Nizam ruled Hyderabad. From the moment you arrive at Taj Falaknuma Palace in a horse-drawn carriage, our palace butlers treat you like royalty. Walk the walk of kings through the Grand Staircase to retrace the steps of Nizams, European royalty, enchanting Begums and distinguished Heads of State. The five-star luxury hotel, spread over 32 acres, allows you to journey to the gilded ages, where opulence and excess is celebrated and savoured in equal measure. The 60 rooms and suites are beautifully refurbished and lovingly restored by Her Highness Princess Esra, the Nizam’s Turkish wife. Each provides marvellous views of the palace courtyard and the 400-year-old city of Hyderabad. Go on a sumptuous, gastronomic ride at our Indian fine-dining restaurant, Adaa, and savour multi-cuisine specialities at Celeste. Enjoy breakfast at Celeste & Gol Bungalow and and afternoon tea on the Jade Terrace or private dinners at South East Garden & Jade Terrace or a Unique dining experience at Gol Bungalow. The stunning Durbar Hall, Jade Room and massive 101-seater dining hall bedecked with Belgian chandeliers, and assorted gardens and terraces lend royal decadence to celebratory events and elegance to business meetings. Feel holistically rejuvenated at our Jiva Spa, rooted in the traditional Indian approach to wellness; complemented with a wellness menu that employs the finest principles of Ayurvedic cooking.

Serene with outstanding hospitality.
-organize some activities for guests. Those staying for more than a couple days may feel a little bored - suggest some history of asaf jah dynasty to be part of the historical tour. I felt there was much to be said. The in house historian has knowledge in the details of the building, but knowledge about the Nizams and his family was unimpressive, if he knew, he did not include in the tour. Since the guests are from all over the world, someone with good command on English language and correct pronunciation will be an asset. One example, knowing the difference between Loin and Lion, would be nice, So say the least. - there are lots of pictures/portraits of the English men/ Lords of the time. Would like to see some portraits of nizam and his family. Including the beautiful ladies Princesses Durrushehvaar, nilofer and Esra. -although the food was good, but lacked authenticity. Specially when calling it Hyderabadi dum biryani, I expect it to be the authentic Hyderabadi biryani. It was not even close. This was my disappointing moment !! -Staff is excellent, their hospitality superb. Truly felt like a guest of The Nizam!!!

Beyond expectation
It's a given that the grounds, palace, and accommodations are going to be beautiful. But the service of the staff, quality of the food, knowledge of the historian walk, and amazing spa experience made my stay one of the top highlights of my trip to India. The private culinary experience was the highlight, and I will be experimenting with my Hyderabad biryani recipe for the rest of my life! Perfect execution. Standing ovation.

House keeping manager contracts with every guest and she offers the tajness. palace services team 100% satisfies my needs. Royal welcome and sendoff are unbelievable. Cheers to palace staff each and every one . It's a short stay so didn't noticed any one name particularly. All of you people done good job.
