About the property:

Retrace the steps of Nizams, European royalty, enchanting Begums, distinguished Heads of State and walk the walk of Kings through this Palace in the sky. 2000 feet above Hyderabad, Taj Falaknuma Palace's 60 beautifully refurbished and lovingly restored rooms allow you to journey into the clouds and into the glided ages, where grandeur and excess is celebrated and savoured in equal measure.

Those who have revelled in its opulence have revelled in its large Venetian chandeliers, rare furniture, grand marble staircases and gurgling fountains, priceless statues, and objets d'art, stained-glass windows, unique sketches and murals encased in ornate frames, a world-class collection of crystal as well as the Mughal, Rajasthani and Japanese gardens personally conceived by the Nizam. The Palace Library, a replica of the one at Windsor Castle, is a collector's envy as it is home to the rarest of manuscripts, books and one of the most acclaimed collections of the Holy Quran in the country, all of which were selected and brought back by the Nizam himself.

The former residence of the Nizam of Hyderabad, Falaknuma Palace has been rightfully leased by the Royal Family of Hyderabad to the Taj Group of Hotels Resorts and Palaces with Royal Family members having personally supervised part of the Palace's refurbishment. Guest can now experience the famed Nizam's hospitality which was once the sole preserve of royalty.

Palace Rooms From 60000/night

The Nizams of the past would wholeheartedly approve of the Palace Rooms in all their opulent glory. These rooms are about richness, beauty, perfection and luxury, all of which have been channelled through the medium of royalty. You can see the commitment to these ideals in the rich fabrics, gleaming oak wood floors, hand-painted walls and its literal reflection in the bathroom's mirrored tiles.

Upto 2 Adults Breakfast Included

Historical Suites From 66000/night

Owing to their location in the Scorpion-shaped palace, Taj Falaknuma Palace's Historical Suites are also called Pincer Suites. Time stands still in delicate Edwardian artwork, antique furniture, grand high ceilings and luscious fabrics personally handpicked by Her Highness Princess Ezra.

Upto 2 Adults Breakfast Included

The Royal Suites From 60000/night

The Royal Suites with opulent furnishings and intricate architecture are located in the Zenana Wing. The timber used all across these rooms are well seasoned 120-year-old Burma teak.

Upto 2 Adults Breakfast Included

Grand Royal Suites From 126000/night

Even though you are 2000 feet above the city, the Palace's Grand Royal Suites will catapult you to a different kind of high. Spectacular panoramic views impatiently duel with the lavish artistry of the interiors as both compete for your attention. As a symbolic reminder of Islamic traditions gone by, we have retained the separate privacy section of the Begum Suite, designed for a time when women were meant to be unseen, private and in purdah. Additionally, the carpets in these Suites have been custom-made in Turkey to complement the existing upholstery.

Upto 2 Adults Breakfast Included
