This family run guest house right on the lake is a dream. Divyarishi Ranawat was so welcoming and friendly and the family home (haveli) is unpretentious yet charming. Suchana Kumari prepared wonderful meals for us. The location is perfect for every activity in charming Udaipur--stay at least four nights or you will regret it.

We did a Rajasthan trip during Dec/Jan and stayed in several heritage hotels. By far, heritage often means tired or worn out with work needed" when it comes to Rajasthan. However, Kankarwa haveli experience was easily the best of the lot. Here was our experience: Pros: - The haveli is 200 years old and you will experience it immediately as... More

Overall, I had a really positive experience at Kankarwa Haveli. We had an enormous room that looked right out onto Lake Pichola (the deluxe lake front suite) that was pretty reasonably priced. They have a little restaurant/bar on the roof, and it was nice to sit up there and have a drink and enjoy the view. It was also really... More

This place is a dream. The family is lovely and warm and super helpful, I had a ground floor room overlooking the lake. No TV and wifi only works in the reception but very serene, extremely comfy bed, great rooftop bar with good food. The pigeons were a little noisy but a minor point! Perfect for a luxurious stay in... More

This is a lovely hotel. The roof top restaurant has beautiful views; the food is good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotless and very tastefully furnished. We love the tranquility of Udaipur and have stayed in neighbouring hotels but this is our favourite. Kankarwa Haveli is special because it is still also a family... More

My husband, brother-in-law and I booked 2 lakefront rooms. No deposit required. The email said "we trust you." How rare is that? My husband and I were inexplicably upgraded to a lakefront suite. The rooms were so beautiful, with lovely linens and tasteful decor and a little balcony overlooking the lake. The owners son, with whom we dealt, was informative... More

This is a very cute, clean, simple yet seemingly luxurious hotel. It's the first heritage hotel we have stayed in India where I felt comfortable. We had a great view of the lake from our room with a very cute sitting area over looking the lake. It was very calming and peaceful. The only downside is that because it is... More

This was a lovely haveli, the staff were amazing kind and helpful (giving my husband free yoghurt and bananas as he was ill), but the star of the stay was the view from our own Juliet balcony over the lake and the romance of the room they gave us (ask for 207). Fabulous.

This is the first 5 star review I've given and I feel it was well earned. We arrived at a competitor hotel and found the view to be rather less than the romantic river view we were expecting (rubbish had become trapped in the water weeds right outside the window) we mentioned this to the staff but the hotel were...

If we were going to Udaipur then we had to stay on the lake, that's what Udaipur is all about. So we booked with the highly rated Kankarwa Haveli located literally on the water. And we loved it. The place was lovely, charming, as was the family that runs it. The rooms were fresh, clean, airy, adorned with Rajasthani artwork.... More
