“Regal luxury!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I visited udaipur in the month of December.i chose Oberoi udaivilas for its sheer extravagance and iconic structure right on the banks of lake pichola.everything was simply fantastic and top notch rivaling the very best in the business.from the moment you enter udaivilas,u transcend reality into an era goneby and feel like royalty to spoil you with the riches ranging from service,food,spa to tranquility helping you in rediscovering and reinvigorating oneself.the hotel is an experience in itself and a special mention of the al fresco dining amongst stars and Rajasthani folk music.definitely not to be missed.....

Once at the hotel we could see the contrast btwn the poverty of India and its sumptuousness. 2 nights were not enough to explore this beautiful colored palace and its surroundings. The gardens, the pools, the rooms and the SPA were absolutely well maintained and agreeable. It may be expensive, but it is well balanced compared to what you get. The food was excellent but a bit spicy for my taste. Breakfast in the gardens of its restaurant was accompanied by bird-songs and the sound of water running, caressed by a fresh breeze in the sun, priceless! Coming out of the SPA for a morning swim, and enjoying the view at the pool, something to make you praise the Creator for the beauty of its nature. It is definitely worth another visit..

Room Tip: ask for a room on the pool... or a view on the lake. Don't get the view on the inside court, may...

Too expensive!!! I visit the place during my holidays.We have stayed in Oberoi Udaivilas three nights Its super luxury except some areas like prices and cleanliness of pool- The swimming pool rim was covered in leeches. There are so many things they haven't got right here. Most of the rooms are a very long walk away from the main hotel. And service too, not come up to our expectations.

Nothing much to add to what the others have already said.
Just pack your bags and go and get pampered by all those amazing people.
We spent 2 nights of our anniversary in Udaivilas, it was a gift from my inlaws and wow, it was amazing.
We had the basic rooms, but even then, there is nothing basic about it.
Luxury was oozing out, everything was so perfect.
We even felt bad to sleep on those amazing bed - it was so perfect
Thanks to everyone at the hotel and thanks to my inlaws for this wonderful gift

Udaivillas is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places. The hotel is located on the banks of the lake with beautiful architecture and design. The surroundings are simply magnificent with beautiful gardens everywhere. After being to the Lake palace, Udaivillas has definitely the best location and the best view. The rooms are luxurious, comfortables and spacious. The service is outstanding and genuinely friendly. The food is absolutely wonderful. One thing must be experienced is an outdoor gourmet dinner under the stars at La promenade - restaurant facing the lake, absolutely divine.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake and possibly with private pool are unique

Before going there I had heard that Udaivilas is 7 star property but after staying there for 2 nights I feel it is 9 star property, 7 for hotel and 2 for extremely courteous and ever-smiling staff.Chef Raunak, steward Payal,Sagvey from spa,Peter,Ranvir at jetty and all other staff were just too good always ready to serve you. The chef Raunak prepared special light veg; food for us. The egg white souffle omelette during breafast was the best we have eaten in entire world,just don't miss it.
We were staying in a semi private pool room with a lake view which was very spacious with pool area. We had requested a room far away from restaurants and we got a room which was last in that row. It was almost 200 meters away from restaurants but we like to walk after our meals. The mini zoo with deer.peacocks and wild boars was just outside our room.
The hotel is right on Lake Pichola with a stunning view. The interior was an excellent combination of modern and palacial architecture. Before this visit my best hotel was Fairmont at Lake Louise but Udaivilas beats that because of staff and service.
