“The bar has been raised to a new level”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is one of the most beautiful hotels I have had the privilege to stay at.
We stayed in one of the rooms with the semi private pool. It was outstanding.
The staff seemed to anticipate our needs and have things we want waiting for us.
The chef came to our table every meal and checked we were enjoying our food.
The spa was beyond anything I have ever seen. We are big spa people so our standard is pretty high. It was my birthday while I was there and they had spelled out "Happy Birthday" in rose petals on the floor of my treatment room! Then gave me some complimentary treatments as well as the massage I had booked.
My friend and I kept wondering how we were going to go home to our normal lives after this experience......we were spoiled rotten.

Room Tip: The semi private pool rooms are sublime.

I don’t think words can express the hospitality my daughter and I received at The Oberoi Udaivilas. From the moment we arrived at this Resort Hotel we were treated like Royalty for the duration of our stay. The service received from every single staff member was flawless and in all the years that I have travelled and stayed in Hotels & Resorts I have never experienced service levels like we did at the Udaivilas. When we checked in we were initially given a premier room with a garden view which was amazing however after the first night and noisy kids a couple of rooms away from us the hotel moved us into a premier lake facing room with a semi private pool which had views to ‘die for’, we literally thought we had died and gone to heaven…the rooms where so comfortable and with having our own pool we cancelled our driver one of the days and spent most of the day at our pool. We were initially going to stay at another property located on the lake and changed our minds at the last minute – it was the best decision we made as the property exceeded every expectation. There are to many staff members to thank personally but I would like the GM to know that he has an amazing team working with him and this made our stay so wonderful, thank you. Should I return to Udaipur for a holiday I will most definitely stay at the Udaivilas again and next time for a longer period. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to any travel travelling to Udaipur.

Room Tip: Premier lake facing rooms..

My benchmark for quality service has been raised to a new height after my trip here. I was initially torn between the Taj Lake Palace & Udaivilas and went for Oberoi instead. The service here is just extraordinary. As mentioned in all reviews, the Lake Palace is very pretty but it remains a palace discussed as a luxury hotel and in some places it shows. The Oberoi was build as a luxury resort in Udaipur and everything corner showcases their attention to detail.

I went in June which is considered off-season in Rajasthan and through emails, the staff were made aware that it was my anniversary. They surprised us with a rose petal shower when we entered, had a cake for us in our room, and a rose bath spa in our room.

The manager, Vincent personally came out to greet us and escorted us to the breakfast area.
Everyone there spoiled us. The chef comes out to speak to you personally, and suggest you dishes.

Unfortunately, there is no breakfast buffet concept. There is a cold buffet and you can order Ala-carte from the hot buffet or a deal which is helpings of cold buffet + 1 main hot dish. The food though is delicious and perfect.

I recommend you go out of the menu and be imaginative. I have had meals where I have just told the Chef I feel like having something spicy and allowed him full creative control and it was perfect.

Advantage Udaivilas has over Taj is you aren't restricted by the location or the hotel transport. You can take a rickshaw from the main gate to any of the non-Hotel based dining options in Udaipur.

However, Oberoi best assets remain their staff and their service. Every employee knows you by first name and last. He or she knows how you like your food, which fool allergy you have, how you like your room, what is your preferred AC temperature, and they all go out of their way to spoil you.

You want to be transported to another level of luxury, select Udaivilas. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Take the pool with the semi-private pool. It is worth it.

We decided to take a short break with our daughter at Udaivilas.Called the hotel for reservations and were assisted to get the rooms just as per our need.We were given the premier lake facing rooms with semi private pool.Trust us, we had an amazing view of the lake from our room window itself with a feeling of infinity pool.The room had a rear courtyard,leading to private deck and pool.
The OBEROI hospitality has to be experienced,no words can do justice to it.From the moment one lands in Udaipur and till one leaves this beautiful resort, it is a different world.
The entire staff is extremely polite courteous and prompt in their service.
The resort is so beautifully designed,nestled in the sprawling 50 acres of landscape,that inspite of full occupancy, one gets the peaceful ,private ,personalised holiday,without feeling crowded.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed, with minute details for comfort.
The food was great, with chefs personally looking after each guest for serving the meals as per guest's liking and taste.
We truly had a wonderful time at Udaivilas and highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: premier lake view rooms are the best

Best property. If you can afford you must stay in. Really luxurious. Tastier and variety of food. Keep it up chefs. Service is little bit slow but can be tolerated because of other qualities. We also used spa and it was really enjoyable.

We were at Udaivilas(UV) recently n must say that we had an incredibly wonderful time. UV offers the ultimate hospitality n luxories, the most beautiful property-perfectly located by the lake, abt 40 acres compound + 20 acres of adjoining sanctuary allows u to be amidst raw nature by the beautiful city-Udaipur. We were pampered thoroughly, my younger sons' BDAY was celebrated most uniquely- both my sons were involved in baking a cake under the guidance of the superchef n so on. Let me share my comment on fb- God knows abt Srinagar, but Udaivilas is surely paradise on earth..
