“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Beautiful hotel along the lake. The hotel has a great view of the city and lake palaces.
Service is fantastic, many photos opportunities, the domes and gardens are just beautiful.
Food was really good!

Room Tip: It is worth to upgrade to a room with a walkout pool and lake view.

Just returned from India and without any doubt this was the stand out hotel of our trip. Absolutely faultless. Incredible location, superb staff who are constantly 1 step ahead of the guests.
Breakfast was breathtaking on the terrace overlooking the lake. I cannot recommend enough this amazing hotel. Absolutely 10 out of 10.

Absolutely beautiful hotel with the best staff. Great views of the lake in a really cool city. Very much enjoyed my stay here! One of the best hotels that I have stayed at in the world. If you travel to India, Udaipur and this hotel must be visited.

Stayed in Sep 2012 for 3 nights in Private pool villa which was the best room i have stayed till date. I had 2 options for stay in Udaipur the 1st was Taj Lake Palace and the other UdaiVilas, i choose the later and i am glad i took this decision. The pick up from airport in a BMW then the traditional welcome at the hotel entrance was out of the world experience which will be remembered by me and my wife for a life time,off late we went on a holiday either with friends or with kids after a long time we had a complete privacy on this trip but after this it will be tough on our part to adjust in other hotel after staying in this wonderful property.

Get pampered with luxury at the The Oberoi, Udaivilas. Be sure to see amazing interiors and lot of domes. Experience luxury in royal style. The lake view is amazing! Food is excellent! I happened to experience the semi private pool. This was the best part of the hotel. Step out of your room to step in the pool. You need to experience this yourself and you will want the luxury to continue.

The hotel is fantastic and the personal was perfect. We walked near the lake and we have maked a lot of beautifull pictures and films. The food, the room and the garden was excellent. So we enjoyed our 2 days in the hotel and in Udaipur.

We stayed in a Taj hotel in Jaipur and honestly didn't think we could find anywhere as amazing, but The Udaivilas exceeded all our expectations. It's a very different experience to the "Taj experience', but in a good way. The hotel was built around 10 years ago on piece of land frequented by wildlife on the banks of Lake Pichola. The Oberoi group did not update an original palace, they created a palace of their own and kept much of the land as wonderful gardens for wildlife to flourish in. It is truly spectacular! Our room was a 'Lakeview Room' which had a private terrace with steps in to a semi-private pool that runs the length of the hotel. We couldn't resist breakfast on our terrace one morning! Every single member of staff we encountered was interested in their new guests (even the doorman knew our names!) and were always ready to engage in relaxed conversation. They are a well-trained and well-educated staff and totally focussed on the needs of their guests. A brief mention to the house-keeping manager of how much we loved the smell of jasmine throughout the hotel, resulted in a bottle of exquisitely scented oil being delivered, gift-wrapped to our room, with a card that sent best wishes from the House-keeping department! We have used it often since our return to London and it brings back very happy memories of a very wonderful 2 night stay at Udaivials.

Room Tip: When it's hot, I would imagine that the lakeview rooms (with UNHEATED semi private pool) would b...
