“Made me feel special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

5 nights there was not long enough ! The service was excellent and the food something else . The chef asked what sort of food we like and would go off and make us something special . When he discovered my wife liked mangoes he made a great dish of mango stuffed with kulfi that was delicious . All the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and more . The view of the lake from our patio was stunning . I have previously stayed at the Lake Palace which was very nice but of the 2 hotels I think Udaivilas has the edge . I will no doubt return .

Spent 3 nights here in May, exceptional service, room excellent, food excellent....will certainly return. We spent our first night at The Leela which was dreadful but made us appreciate this hotel even more!

Room Tip: Shared Pool room overlooking the lake was perfect

Just like the lakeside town of Udaipur, this hotel is full of surprises. A large complex with a mixture of shared and private pools, well maintained spa facilities, a nature reserve on the doorstep, breathtaking views across the lake to the City Palace, and (above all) great service from truly engaged and highly motivated staff. Rooms are well appointed with good beds and good bathrooms. This was the perfect way to relax after a hectic week of temples, palaces and monuments across Rajasthan. Highly recommended!

I stayed at this lovely property for my wife's birthday. The staff is so friendly, the property is so luxurious and the experience is just grand. You can run out of adjectives. A BMW 5 series was there for our airport pick up. Driver offered my wife a bouquet and wished her. The ride was total of 40 minutes, 30 minutes by car and 10 minutes by boat. Everyone wished my wife a happy birthday when we arrived. It looked like everyone was thorough with the homework.They provided us with an in-room check-in. I had a room with a semi-private pool (room no. 130) and loved it. It is strongly recommended. Pool was clean, facing the lake and the hotel's wild life sanctuary. Resort provides only 30 minutes of free wi-fi every day, which was a bit surprising given how generous the service was otherwise. We had a private dinner with a customized menu on my wife's birthday. Ashish and Chef Tanvi made sure arrangements were perfect. They had discussed the menu, location and other special requests a week before. Food was exactly as per our taste, our private musicians were entertaining, out personal steward Ajay was patient enough to serve us for 3 hours. The surprise balloon decoration and cake in the room post dinner was amazing. Tanvi also took us around for a kitchen tour which was very interesting. We were offered free drinks(Indian liquor) during cocktail hours(6-7 PM). Since we arrived late and the bar was full Ashish and Bartender Areeb were generous enough to extend the cocktail hours for us. I recommend fusion drinks by Areeb and Rajasthani thali by Chef Ashish. Breakfast is elaborate and nice. Really recommend the South Indian and pancakes. We stayed on the property the whole time and had all our meals there. Everything about the property is so classy, be it the decor, staff uniform or silver cutlery. Weather was really nice, since it's located by the lake side it is much cooler than other parts of Udaipur.

We travelled as a couple..as it was a special occassion..the hospitality recieved is truly out of the world..we had selected the king room with a garden view..but on request we were upgraded to the semi private pool room without hesitation..since i wanted to surprise my wife...the next day to our surprise we were upgraded to the mogul suite..so all 3 nights we stayed in an upgraded room and the mogul suite was beyond comparison..have no words to describe how special we felt.The food was delicious and special thanx to chef Akash who never said a no to our rather unconventional food demands.Special mention to Roopal,Roshni,Areeb at the bar,Vivek at the poolside and to everyone else who made our stay so special..They even know u by your name something that i have never seen before...Also managed to use the gym which had all the equipments that you require to work out in top working condition..Hospitality is top class..Spread over 30 acres the hotel is one of the best in the world..truly had a royal stay..

Room Tip: If you have the money then the Mogul suite it is...if not then the semi-private pool room isthe one...

Any1 would be confused between Taj Lake palace & The Oberoi Udaivillas. My choice would be The Oberoi Udaivillas. You get all that you expect on a leisure holiday. Best part of Udaivillas is - the Hotel is situated in a vast area of land with a over whelming hospitality service by the Hotel Staff. beautiful sanctuaries inside the property, very tasty food, luxury spa & mostly the hotel is very silent for the ones who really need a silent atmosphere. In one word- "JUST AMAZING".

Room Tip: semi private pool room. just amazing

We had a great time there. I wish I could have stayed a few days more. Service with smile and speed is praiseworthy. You feel like a king there. It is well planned hotel with a beautiful garden and surrounding. The restaurant serves delicious food with very efficient service. A very nice experience.
