“Would have loved to stay here longer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

My wife & I stayed here for 2 nights in February 2014. Thanks to the Taj & the Oberoi running out of rooms, we had no option but to stay at the Leela & what a wonderful stay it was. The only regret was that we wished that we could have stayed longer.

We were treated like royalty at every corner of the hotel. The staff were impecable & the service at the highest standards.

We booked a heritage view room with a balcony & spent a lot of time just taking in the beauty of Udaipur from there.

The boat rides to & from the hotel certainly adds to the exotica. The food is probably one of the best I have had in India, however if you want to dine at the Sheesh Mahal, do book a day in advance.

We also enjoyed our post dinner walks around the hotel grounds.

Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Heritage view room with balcony.

A perfect blend between the old royal values and service and modern design and facilities.
The rooms overlook the lake and have excellent views.
the arrival and welcome are truly spellbinding and make you feel royal.
The climate from April to September is such that you cannot step out from 11.00 am to 4.00 noon.
Th breakfast spread is awesome and well made.
Would love to return

Room Tip: all rooms are lake view

From arrival at the private jetty to rose petal greeting and inroom checkin you will find it hard to fault this hotel.
The hot water was a little slow to come through but once it did it was hot!
The rooms are amazing with views across the lake and the bed positioned exactly to take full advantage. The touch panel lights and the fully mobile TV stand add to the experience.
Breakfast is great, cold options on a buffet and hot cooked to order, pancakes and waffles a delight.
Lunch feels expensive but it comes with an enormous bowl of rice which would be extra in most hotels

We went to udaipur for our anniversary. And booked into the Leela Palace.
We were picked up from the dock by the leela ferry. It was an amazing ride till the hotel. Where we were greeted by traditional rajasthani folk song "padharo mhare des" and showered with rose petals. Hotel staff had upgraded us to a superior room than what we had booked. And since it was our anniversary, they made lovely arrangements. Where we were presented us with a bouquet. Later they made us cut a cake and light the sky lanterns. And our room was decorated with roses and candle lights! Making our stay extremely memorable! The staff is very courteous - ritika and bharat and pramod and ranveer- the boat man, who took us for a sunset cruise, and is extremely proud of the rich heritage of udaipur. He gave us a very well informed tour of the city by the lake.
Rajasthani food at sheeshmahal restaurant is finger licking.
Morning breakfast is made to order and they dont hv a buffet spread. But chef does a good job of selections given on the menu.
Udaipur is a very beautiful place and Leela palace made our trip worth it!

I don't even know where to begin. I guess I will start at the beginning, which is when we were picked up at the airport and dropped off at the dock, where we took a boat to the hotel. (They had some sort of system that helped them keep track of everyone's bags and everyone's rooms, so we said good bye to our bags at the airport, and said hello to them after a few minutes of being in our rooms; we never had to deal with lugging them around, ever). The boat was delightful, and when we disembarked my husband and I were escorted by a smartly dressed man, carrying an umbrella to shield me from the sun, to the check-in area. We were greeted by falling rose petals and music, and then given cold glasses of fresh fruit juice before checking in and being escorted to our rooms.

The rooms were amazing, the food was amazing, the service was amazing. The pool alone is an amazing experience; it was the first time I've been provided with a picnic basket filled with bottled water, ice cubes, magazines, and cold refreshing towels for an afternoon of sunning and swimming. (The nearby showers for changing are no less luxurious).

The grounds are gorgeous, and one could easily spend all of their time at the hotel, but the staff had great recommendations for lunch at a couple of restaurants in town, less than a five minute walk from the hotel gates, which was one of the highlights of my entire trip to India.

There is nothing negative that I could write about my stay; everyone was so helpful and friendly.
