At Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur, India, you and your significant other can float all your cares away in one of the most romantic destination in the world.

This floating palace in the middle of Lake Pichola was built by Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1746 as a bonafide pleasure palace, and today it’s a five-star luxury hotel as well as a popular T.V. and film location, with cameos in "Octopussy," "Jewel in the Crown," and more. 

The floating palace is located across from the larger City Palace in Udaipur, and enjoys 360 degrees of lake and city views from its spot in the tranquil waters. Restored in the 1960s, the hotel includes 66 rooms and 17 suites with around-the-clock butler service.

And if you’re itching to get your feet on dry land, getting to and from the hotel is just a quick trip by water taxi from the city pier.

When you’re not spending time in your beautiful suite, the hotel also offers a full-sized swimming pool, yoga facilities, a rooftop bar, restaurant, and a spa on a boat. Because everything is better on a boat.
