One of my best hotel experiences ever!

This place is really unique: the location is fabulous, and the hotel facilities (spa, pools, gardens, restaurants, tennis, gym etc) are all beautifully maintained. When arriving, we were upgraded to one of the Historical rooms, which is the size of a small apart. We liked the hotel so much that we decided to stay an extra day. Being non-Indian, the staff really went an extra mile to show and teach us what the Indian cuisine was about. For instance we were given complimentary tasters of menu items we informed about, but did not choose. All over the hotel, the staff has a great mindset, and they really care about making your stay as good as possible. A strong point, is that they are even thinking pro-actively. In summary, you are feeling like a Maharadja. I have visited some other Tay properties, and this one is the most authentic and unique in my opinion. What could improve: (i)internet should be complimentary. (ii)They should be more honest about the taxi options. When i required what if they could arrange transport to the next place on our itinerary, their quote was double the quote of my travel agent, and triple the quote of my guide book... (iii)cocktails are of low quality (which they are not at Tay Jaipur)
