We spent 4 nights at the Oberoi Udaivilas in October, as part of an Oberoi Exotic Vactions package. Udaipur was a beautiful city to explore, and one of the highlights of our trip.
Udaivillas was the grandest of the Oberoi properties we visited; almost overwhelmingly so. It definitely felt busier and like there were far more rooms (and guests) than the properties in Agra and Jaipur. We initially stayed in a Luxury Suite (too large for two, and a bit too far from the main functions of the hotel, and ours was without a view over the lake), later opting for a Premier Room with direct access into the semi private lap pool overlooking the lake. These rooms are fantastic.
The Premier Rooms off the lap pool have a slightly more direct route to the terrace (for both Breakfast and Dinner), and are close to the Spa. The Spa was an excellent experience, and a beautiful part of the building – well worth a visit. The grounds to the hotel are immaculate and very impressive.
The concierge can assist with bookings for the Lake Palace (lunch or dinner), but if you’re looking to have lunch or dinner there it’s best to book ahead of your visit. We only enquired once we arrived, and weren’t able to arrange a booking.
The service is attentive and very friendly; but the veil did slip quite often (the same boat tour sales pitch a few mornings in a row at breakfast, etc). Our main gripe across all the Oberoi hotels we stayed in; the Wifi costs approximately 990 Rupee a day (USD18), progressively cheaper should you pay for a weeks worth of internet, etc. As our stay was part of an Oberoi Exotic Vacations package, it was a shame that we could not have been offered a reduced internet rate for constant access across our 12 night package.

- In a city fabled for its palaces, The Oberoi Udaivilas can take its place with pride. With views over Lake Pichola to the spectacular City Palace, the hotel itself resembles a grand palace. Landscaped gardens and shady courtyards, decorative fountains and reflection pools, cool marble, ornate carving, inlay work and detailed interiors create a marvellous ambience of days gone by.
