We spent three nights here in March in the two rooms at the very top of the haveli. Ours, which effectively had walls of glass, faced directly onto the lake. The views were amazing. A recent but sympathetic addition, the room was well laid out with the exception of the bathroom, which was down two steep stairs. It did get... More

If there were a way to capture special moments from our trip to India so that we have that moment preserved forever, I would want to capture the view from our room at Kankarwa Haveli. We were sad to have only spent one day/night in Udaipur but will cherish the memory. Our room was beautifully appointed with local handmade embroideries... More

If you are looking for a place with true charm and extraordinary location then this is it. This 'haveli' is at the end of a long winding cobbled road, no through traffic, right on the water with a water taxi at the front door and multiple eating places tucked in corners or on rooftops just beside. We were initially allocated... More

After we had a problem with our booking in another hotel, we were recommended to try this place. The room which we were offered was a bit over our budget, but with a great lake view at the top. After agreeing on the price, we stayed there for 2 nights; we really loved it, especially the sunset view was great!... More

We spend two nights at this lovely place in Udaipur and for me it was the best stop of our Rajasthan trip also because of this nice hotel! We were lucky enough to get the top floor room with panorama windows and a balcony that offered stunning lake views. My dad had a room two floors lower but still had... More

We planned a trip to kankarwa haveli in Oct 2013 & heard about it from the outlook magazine. True to the review the stay was fabulous. We got the lake facing rooms which had a beautiful view... the rooftop restaurant is an added advantage & juts quite a bit into the lake giving you an edge over the other havelis.... More

Arriving directly from London, watching the sun setting over the lake from the rooftop restaurant, was pure theatre. The location of this haveli is magnificent. Everything else about the stay was good. If you take the trouble to learn about the owner and staff, and not dwell on the kind of things a spoilt tourist might dwell on, you will... More

We stayed here for two nights towards the end of February. I have very mixed feelings about the place. The view and position by the lake are really special but the rest of the experience bordered between just OK and rather worrying. We stayed on the top on the same level as the restaurant. We are fit but the stairs... More

We stayed at a "suite" which had a lakeside view which was beautiful. Room was pretty barebones. Bathroom was rudimentary. Hot water was good but drainage so so and there was an unpleasant odor coming from the drain that encouraged us to close bathroom door at all times. Service was adequate. Didn't take credit card so we had to be... More

Initially we planned for a 4 days stay. Once we actually saw our room we booked it for a week and we ended up staying for 10 days. The place is absolutely wonderful, every detail is taken care of, the staff is beyond any expectation and the organic breakfast is more than you can wish for! It felt like we... More
