Taj Falaknuma Palace
Taj Falaknuma Palace is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Romantic Retreats
A hotel that completely takes your breath away, this lovingly restored palace recently reopened in its former glory after a decade-long refurbishment. Passed on for generations like a precious jewel, Falaknuma Palace or 'Mirror of the Sky' was the residence of Nizam Mehboob Ali Khan, at the time the richest man in the world. Set at 2000 feet, almost amongst the clouds, it has vast 360 degree views over the city. The palace offers guests a glimpse of the imperial lifestyle of the Nizams who governed the legendary city of Hyderabad. The hotel has a choice of 60 unique rooms and suites, 2 restaurants, an outdoor pool and the Jiva Spa, spread across 32 acres of land with glorious views over the city and surrounding countryside.
