Taj Falaknuma Palace
Hyderabad

Top 10s logo 

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.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

Client Testimonials

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
