4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Have stayed here before but reviewing for the first time. Was here for a night to celebrate a friends 50th Birthday. The hotel in itself is a palace which is owned by the Royals of Dungarpur. The rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms. Though I think some of the rooms do need renovation. The food is tasty and... More

We visited for one night only. The room was huge if a bit old fashioned. But everything worked. The hotel is situated on the side of a lake which is pretty and the village nearby was worth a visit. However, the star of the place is its incredibly bizarre bar, which has to be seen and, of course, used to... More

Strongly recommended !! You will not be disappointed. Located at the lake with 100 s of wild birds. Rooms are very spacious. Each of them are unique. Also the surrounding is amazing, it is a must to discover the nature around the hotel. Also a fantastic bar and pool is included. Unfortunately wifi didn't work, however you don't need it... More

The palace had been recommended to us and it certainly didn't disappoint. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Lovely big bathroom with deep bath. The dinning experience was also fantastic. Beautiful food and served by gracious staff. The Prince was there and entertained us in his "garage" bar. Very funny being surrounded by vintage cars, music and entertaining posters.... More

We were 7 families who decided to travel by road from ahmedabad to dungarpur for 2N-3D ! The rooms were huge and well appointed. There was enough space for kids to play and run about inside the property and also in the rooms! The staff is very cordial and helpful. We did have some issues with billing at the time... More

We had a pleasant room, with a balcony accessed through the bathroom. The beds were comfortable; however, we could have done with larger sheets that could be tucked in! A beautiful garden to relax in and see the different birds in the garden and on the lake. Fortunately, we are mobile, but had to be careful going up stairs to... More

Amazing service and setting. The well appointed staff make you feel like royalty. Which is appropriate, I suppose, as the local mahrajah still lives here. They also make arrangements to visit the late 13th century former royal residence and hidden treasure Juna Mahal, with its gorgeous, whimsical painted rooms. The interior courtyard of the Udai Bilas Palace houses an ornate... More

Set on a lake, with the constant chatter of birds, this beautiful Heritage palace has been converted into a select hotel. Secluded & sedate, one can enjoy the sense of times gone by. The rooms are adequate, the food is simple but tasty & varied, & the service is caring & considerate. There is a bar set at the end... More

This was our fourth visit to Udai Bilas in the past ten years so they must be doing something right. There are palace hotels that are much more luxurious, but Udai Bilas has an charm and authenticity all of its own. It is the second palace of the family. The old palace just up the road has interiors as fine... More

For those who are interested in the real life of the Indian royalty and can't afford the Lake Palace, this is the place! It's a real palace still in the hands of the original royal family. It's not a palace sold to a corporation to renovate the past away. Don't come here for modern luxuries, come to experience something unique,... More
