“Dream World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Visited in the beginning days of monsoon, the location spectacular during the drizzle. The Hotel management takes you to another world called heaven. Excellent service, rooms with the best views of the lake with all comforts. Extraordinary cuisines, comforting atmosphere and truly to its name living in a palace like royalty in the middle of a lake. Dreamworld......... Indeed.

From the edge of the shore to dock side at the hotel you will be totally engaged with the views around you. You will be treated like royalty. The hotel staff will definitely make sure your stay is exceptional, it was for us. The room was clean and inviting. If you go to Udaipur you have to stay here.

Just cannot begin to tell you how fabulous this hotel is. You really question the wisdom of leaving to visit the sights. Apart from being so splendid and comfortable, the staff are superb and cannot do enough to help. The whole atmosphere is calm, welcoming and truly unforgettable.

This is a dream experience, from the boat ride to the welcome of rose petals. The views are amazing, the service is immaculate, and their Indian restaurant is quite delicious. It is a costly affair, from the room rate to the F&B, but worth it for a once in a lifetime experience!

Room Tip: I stayed in the Udai Mahal - magnificent!

a hotel where you would like to sit outdoors a bast in the beauty of lake pichola and the surrondings. the rooms are small but that is understandable. the indian cuisine at the neelkaamal is fingerlicking. a special word of thanks to apurba who made it a dinner to remember for a long long time

Room Tip: lake view rooms on the 1st floor rooms

First, the hotel is every bit as stunning and beautiful as the photos. The welcome was spectacular as every other reviewer has mentioned - you are met after a breathtaking boat ride, with a charming welcome under a Royal umbrella, a royal rose petal shower and delightful welcome drinks.

The palace is historical, having been built over 200 years ago by a petulant prince who was upset that daddy didn't let him party at the Summer Palace - floating a few hundred meters away, and the royal family had used it since for a holiday home in the summer time. Restaurants are also great - service flawless, we even requested a copy of the DVD Octopussy to watch while in our room (as part of the movie was filmed at the hotel) and it was delivered with a bag of popcorn - so thoughtful and delightful.

Now, I can say that the one thing that really ruined the stay for me - was the SQUAWKING of the pigeons from 6AM. It was impossible to sleep through it. I don't mean a dozen pigeons, I mean hundreds of pigeons all squawking at the same time. It may not bother guests who are not light sleepers, but for me, it was a complete irritant that woke me up at the crack of dawn and needless to say, it was not a restful stay. The hotel, compared to the sprawling grounds of the Oberoi Udaivilas where we stayed before this, can also be a little claustrophobic. The standard rooms are pretty but tiny (same size as a cabin suite on a cruise ship). Our friends who were traveling with us got an upgrade to the Queen's Suite, and the room was huge with high ceilings, so I am sure all the rooms are different and maybe we just got the tiny room in the middle of the property (next to the lotus garden).

There is a little pool at the end of the Lake Palace (maybe 30m in length). There were about 4 couples swimming in it when we arrived, and it gave me the feeling I was in a luxurious retirement home. I suppose the feeling can be best described as being on a cruise ship. An exceptionally beautiful, luxurious and elegant ship with flawless service and excellent dining - and hundreds of pigeons on board

The hotel did acknowledge that they had a pigeon problem (seems we aren't the only guests who have given them this feedback), but were rather apologetic about not being able to solve it - no matter what they do, the pigeons keep coming back!
