The Detail


Perched high above the City of Pearls, the Taj Falaknuma Palace is an extraordinary luxury retreat where you can for the duration of your stay live like the Nizam of Hyderabad. Oozing romance and palatial grandeur, the Taj Falaknuma’s grand staircases, state rooms and extensive gardens have been lovingly restored to provide an opulent city retreat, and from the moment you arrive in a horse-drawn carriage, teams of butlers and footmen will be waiting to ensure that you receive the royal treatment yourself.

There is a stunning Jiva spa with a wide range of Ayurvedic treatments and an array of fine dining experiences, including the chance to enjoy an intimate rooftop dinner looking out over the twinkling city lights and a splendid afternoon tea on the Jade Terrace.
