Ideally located on the opposite bank of the lake to the the City Palace its a short drive or boat ride to the centre of Udaipur. After the hustle and bustle of other cities that we visited on our stay in India this hotel offered some welcomed peace, space and tranquillity at the end of our holiday. The hotel and grounds are immaculate and extremely spacious, it has its own wildlife area, and outdoor dining restaurant which was very popular when we were there in February. The staff are attentive and helpful.

Unique Quality: The setting is fanstastic alongside Lake Pichola with uninterrupted views of Lake Palace and City Palace. Its a peaceful, spacious location that offers a truly romantic setting. Around every corner there is another fanstastic vista and every attention is made to the beautiful detail.

Service was impeccable and every effort is made to ensure your stay is first class. Its independently rated the 3rd best hotel in the world and you can see why.

Udai Villas

by written on June 11, 2006

Udai Villas is a new luxury Resort and Spa, part of the Oberoi chain of hotels. The hotel is located on the banks of Lake Pichola. The resort is spread over 30 acres of landscaped gardens and courtyards and was designed as a Mewari palace. The Spa part of the hotel offers holistic non-clinical treatments ranging from ancient Ayurveda to aromatherapy. Next to the resort is a 20-acre wildlife conservatory which houses Indian spotted deer, wild boar and peacocks.

The hotel has two restaurants, the Surya Mahal (continental and Asian cuisines) and the Udai Mahal (Indian cuisine). There is a bar which has views of the City Palace and Lake Pichola as well as Poolside service for snacks and drinks.

Directions: 40 minute-drive from Udaipur's Dabok airport.

The most beautiful hotel in India

by written on March 9, 2003

I've stayed in an awful lot of nice hotels in my travels, and I can say with confidence that Udaivilas is in the top three out of the whole list. It was absolutely spectacular (with prices to match, of course--but if the company is paying, who am I to refuse?) The hotel, built in the style of a Mewar palace, opened in the fall of 2002. The service is near-perfect, with a staff-to-customer ratio that seems to be about two to one. The rooms are so lovely that I was moved to take photos of mine--even the bathroom! The hotel has a fabulous spa, its own wildlife park, two main swimming pools, one private pool for the higher-priced rooms, and private pools for each of the palatial suites--just in case you need two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a private sauna.

Unique Quality: Udaivilas is one of four super-deluxe properties owned by the Oberoi group of hotels (the others are in Jaipur, Agra, and Ranthambore). There is no way the company is ever going to recoup the massive investments they made on this complex, but they seem content to have it as an image-builder. It worked for me.

Oberoi's New Wonder

by written on October 31, 2002

Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Aravalli ranges and steeped in the romance of the historic region of Mewar, Udaivilas, The Oberoi Group's newest luxury resort, is situated on the banks of Lake Pichola in Udaipur, India.

In this tranquil, salubrious setting, Udaivilas has been conceived as a splendid palace, wonderfully recreating the romance of the past, representing the continuity of the grand traditions of Mewar and yet completely in keeping with the 21st century. The resort is spread over an expanse of 30 acres, and its carefully planned and executed design has evolved as a seamless assimilation of spaces resembling the old palaces. Courtyards and walkways, gently rippling water bodies fountains and reflecting pools, and exquisitely landscaped gardens, sculptures and frescoes, arches and domes, niches and alcoves - the building lends itself to discovery and continual surprise. Embellished by beautiful works of art and craft from in and around the region, Udaivilas is a vast canvas with an almost lambent quality, changing with the light and seasons and possessed of a sense of timelessness.

Unique Quality: Recreation
The Oberoi Spa, managed by Banyan Tree, one of Asia's best-regarded spa management companies, is a special feature of the resort. Guests can avail of a range of non-clinical rejuvenating and pampering treatments that include Ayurveda and aromatherapy, in restful private therapy suites that overlook the lake.
Other recreational facilities include two-heated swimming pools, one of which overlooks the Lake Pichola. A modern gymnasium offers range of exercise equipment from treadmills to and free weights. A selection of books, music and videodiscs is available.
Outdoor activities range from rides on traditional wooden boats to sightseeing tours to Udaipur's intriguing palaces. Excursions can be arranged with sumptuous picnics hampers and al fresco dining in charming settings.
