“Incredible hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

With my family we spent one week last easter.
Our plan was to stay 4 nights, but we were upgraded to the Kohinoor Suite by the GM (really appreciated) and so we extended to 3 more nights
One of the best suite I've ever been and the value for money .... out of this world !
Great service, good food, wonderful gardens and outside the wonderful Udaipur and Rajastan.

Hope to come back one day. Thanks to everyone (especially to our butler and the chef who made his best to make us taste all the best indian food).

Wow. Difficult to find new superlatives to describe just how incredible this place is. From the welcome drink to cool you down while you check in in the comfort of your room to the pure luxury of the 'semi private' pool outside the room, the uninterrupted views across the lake and the incredibly friendly service at every turn it simply cannot be faulted. The food is also superb and service with a smile is accompanied by a genuine interest in their guests.

Spent our honeymoon there about a year ago (Dec 1-5, 2011), and thanks to the beautiful surroundings and regal hospitality, we had the experience of a lifetime. The suite was amazing, the food (at each restaurant as well as room service) was consistently excellent, and service was warm and gracious, all by polished yet genuinely pleasant professionals. So many aspects of this site, interior and exterior, were breathtaking. Thanks to the management and each staff member, we had a beautifully memorable stay!

great experience . the pool near the room and the private garden felt like being in paradise.
The staff friendly and knowledgeable .
I especially enjoyed the cooking class and getting info on new bangra hits from the staff-thanks!

Room Tip: get the room with sami-private pool-its worth the extra cost

Staying at this hotel makes one feel as part of India's past, it's like living a dream.
The arquitecture is amazing , decoration simple but extremely elegant, the greeting is warm . Rooms cozy with local handcrafts all in great taste. The quality of the food at the restaurants is marvelous and the view to Lake Pichola is breathtaking. There are fountains, water canals that end at the pool,gardens everywhere, specific points where to admire the grandness of the lake.
Beautiful and gorgeous

Room Tip: Rooms with a view to the lake

My wife and I stayed three wonderful days at the majestic Oberoi Udaivilas in November 2012. From the special greeting upon our arrival by the hotel's General Manager, Vincent Guironnet and his gracioius and professional staff--we felt like familly! Our accommodations were superb and the food was truly outstanding. Each time we encountered members of the staff, we were called by name and always greeted with a smile....personal serviceand attention to detail excels at this hotel! Chef Rupak even shared his receipes of the most enjoyable Indian cuisine you can imagine...

The 10-year old hotel is has 87 rooms and our premier room with semi-private pool had a fantastic view of Lake Pichola...a most picturesque sight! If you are visitng India -- do not miss staying at the dream location!

Room Tip: A premier room with semi-private pool overlooking the lake is very special...
