If you are in Bhopal, you cannot miss the Upper Lake. Sweeping out in a grand arc along the western corner of the capital of Madhya Pradesh, it is a feast for the eye. The Upper Lake has been renamed as Bhoj Tal after Paramara Raja Bhoj (1005-1055), a ruler of Malwa, who ordered its construction. Along with its twin, the Lower Lake, the Bhoj wetland was inscribed in 2002 as a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention.

And now, offering you a chance to enjoy this picturesque lake from the comfort of your room is Taj Lakefront, the new hotel from Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), South Asia’s leading hospitality brand, in Bhopal.

With its landmark location and contemporary design, the hotel draws inspiration from the rich architecture, history and culture of Madhya Pradesh.

Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, IHCL, said, “IHCL’s iconic brand, Taj, steps into Bhopal with Taj Lakefront. This addition is in line with IHCL’s strategy of being present in every state capital. Bhopal, one of the greenest cities of India, has tremendous business and tourism potential.”

The 152-room Taj Lakefront, Bhopal, with panoramic views of the lake and picturesque hills, is a comfortable driving distance from the airport as well as important leisure and commercial centres.

The design of the hotel weaves in the rich arts and crafts of the region. Expect to see the usage of bell metal craft of Tikamgarh, zari work of Bhopal, the paisley prints of Bagh, the durries of Sironj, and the terracotta art of the state's tribal areas.

There are two signature restaurants, Machan - the popular all-day diner, and House of Ming - known for its Chinese cuisine. Guests can also enjoy innovative cocktails at Infinity Lounge and Bar and a selection of brews and bakes at Emperor Lounge.
