“An oasis, literally!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

We had been going on the highway for quite sometime and planning a stopover for lunch when we spotted this place, like an oasis in the desert. this is a very well maintained place , true to Rajasthani style. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The artifacts in the place were lovely. We stayed only for lunch but rooms also seemed good, with nice view.

Me & my husband were looking for a serene place to spend our weekend away from the regular hustle bustle....Location of Umaid Lake Palace is great...not too far from Delhi, roads are nice too....
The property is huge, clean with great interiors in room....
The food was just awesome....fresh, tasty & healthy... :)
Special mention for the staff.... they were extremely caring with smiles on their faces whenever we looked at them...!!!!
Would love to visit this place again... :)

Cheers!

Everything about this trip was good. Could have enjoyed more if the staff accommodated our room service request. Sometimes it was difficult to get to the kitchen when your room is not on the same floor as the kitchen.

Thank you for leaving your feedback following your recent stay with us at Umaid Lake Palace.

As a policy we offer room service in the rooms till 2200 hrs, however sometimes during the festive season the hotel gets busy and we encourage our guests to dine at the restaurant to avoid delay in service.

May I reassure you that the areas pointed out by you have been revisited and all necessary actions have been put in place in order to ensure top most level of deliveries.


Warm regards,

We spent 5 nights at the Umaid Lake Palace to attend a wedding in nearby Dausa. The building and grounds are beautiful, the service was excellent and all the employees were very friendly and personable. We splurged on a corner suite with a sitting area in the round tower room. Breakfast was served on the canopied terrace overlooking the now dry lake bed and in the evenings we enjoyed Kingfisher Beer and bottled water from room service. The room had AC, satellite TV (Indian channels only) and a nice bathroom with shower.

The hotel booked us a very enjoyable camel ride and offered to arrange for transportation to visit Jaipur (2 hours one way), Agra (4 hours) and the local temples and ancient step well (1 hour each).

If you want to sit in a jetted tub, watching CNN and talking to your facebook friends, stay at a big city luxury hotel! If your goal is to relax and experience the beauty and peace of Rajastan up close and personal, by all means, visit the Umaid Lake Palace!

We stayed in many 5-star hotels on our trip, but this was a welcome change. It was very nice and more informal. We were greeted with a "Welcome" sign spelled out in marigolds. In the evening, each step was lit by a candle. The grounds are beautifully maintained. We were treated to an elegant tea on the lawn during a camel polo match. The food was good. The rooms are comfortable but not showy and have balconies that overlook the fields. The hotel felt big and somewhat empty and there's nothing nearby, but all of that can be good, depending on what you're looking for.
