Fateh Prakash Palace
Ranked #38 of 163 Hotels in Udaipur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2012

We stayed here for one night and just could not get enough of anything. Priced definitely on the higher side, but you get back worth every penny spent. This is the palace where dynasties of kings of Mewar had resided and guess who's there next building - The present king and his family. To discover the palace around where you stay will take a comfortable 2 days. So you can keep the rest of Udaipur for the next lot of days.
You realize here that the place you are staying itself is a tourist attraction in Udaipur. With the package comes all the required passes to explore the palace completely.
The dinner was one of the most amazing Ambiance/Taste you will ever experience. The restaurant staff allows you to enjoy each course of the meal at leisure. The dinner is an experience that you can carry on for 2 to 3 hours feeling the place in all its glory. The staff really works to give you this spaced out feeling.
The only thing that other places in Udaipur can give you, that this place cannot, is the view of Fateh Prakash itself. ;)
There is live classical music playing at all the meals including breakfast.
The staff is exceptionally well behaved and friendly. Its like you have gone to a house of a really nice friend. Everybody is so happy to help you.
It was my wife's birthday we were bringing in. With this information that I gave the manager, apart from greeting us with the midnight cake, all the staff - room service, restaurant staff, the reception desk, all were wishing her. So as long as you are there you really feel like you belong there.
If you like Rajastan and all the royalty around, this is a must visit.

Room Tip: Anything that is lake view.

Other reviews seem to suggest that timing is everything. We stayed two nights in early November (immediately after the busy Diwali holiday). The hotel seemed empty and we were upgraded to a suite - very comfortable.
The staff were on the ball and very obliging. We ate in both restaurants and enjoyed excellent meals and service in them. The lakeside restaurant is our favourite for dinner. The restaurants' are quite expensive (for India), but the food's very good.
I guess if you stay at a busy time, you may not enjoy the hospitality that was afforded to us - we found no faults at all, on the contrary there's much to commend it. However, as I say - it was quiet and sevice levels may drop during busy periods.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. We were warmly greeted and told that we had been upgraded to a suite. The suite was excellent with superb views over the lake. The hotel is part of the palace complex and full of history. We ate in the sunset terrace restauarant 1 night and for breakfast-the food and service were very good. The town is safe and offers alternate dining arrangements but for the views and service the Fateh Prakash could not be beaten.
We would recommend this hotel in the beautiful city of Udaipur

The best hotel of our trip. First of all the manager gave us an upgrade to 2 suites as our car journey in Rajastan had a few problems due to the people demonstrating and blocking highways. So a very good start as our suites were located in the actual Raja residence. The view of the lake was amazing as well as the rooms - huge with fantastic furniture, bathrooms and amenities. We only ate breakfast in the hotel that was fantastic on a terrace overlooking the lake. In Udaipur there are many options to eat out (check out Lonely Planet) and the hotel is perfectly located to go around town on foot. The town is safe and people very friendly.
Fantastic experience in the most beautiful city of Rajastan.

Arrived here on honeymoon after the overnight sleeper from Jaipur - the train journey was the low part of the entire trip and I was sick after getting off the train and then as soon as I arrived at the hotel. Once I had recovered I could really appreciate the delightful location and staff. The room was superb, a restored suite in the Maharana's palace with views over Lake Pichola. The service at all levels was exceptional and the sunset terrace was a beautifully romantic place to dine on. Guests can explore areas of the palace too and there are incredible artifacts on display. There was an immense sense of pride that they were conserving an important part of their heritage and it truly was a spectacular end to our honeymoon.

Fateh Prakash Palace hotel
A dream palace yet within our budget. Excellent suite, well maintained... excellent furniture ornate yet comfortable. The hotel is situated within the City Palace complex, yet it is not in the way of the visiting tourists. We were welcomed with traditional Rajasthani hospitality- garland, tilak and cool drinks. The hotel lounge was tastefully done up , we spent some time there as our room was being readied.
We were accompanied to our room in a true royal style and welcomed there with yummy chocolates and fruits.
The room was awesome--- facing the Pichhola lake and over looking the Taj Palace hotel. Infact, so breathtaking was the view that we did not feel lke stirring out. The comfort in the rooms was also of the highest degree- large soft beds, comfortable settes, hot water in a large well equipped bathroom and of course breath taking view. The writing table also had personalised stationery, maps and tourist guide to the city.What more can one want?
The buffet breakfast served on an open air deck over looking the lake was enormous and delicious..... both Indian and western delicasies were on the menu. The dinner served a-la-carte was also very good.
The staff were the epitome of hospitality, warm and caring and very courteous!! They would come in twice- once to clean, and at night to ready the room for the night, They brought along their hallmark chocolates and kept fresh fruit in the room every morning ina ddition to the complimentary water.
All in all a very memorable holiday...one I wish to repeat some time soon.

Rajasthan abounds with royal hotels. What sets apart fateh Prakash, Udaipur is that it was indeed the King's home 200 years ago. The room in which i stayed was one where the princesses stayed at one point. The alcove, window seating, beds were reminiscent of it.

The food at the palace hotel was fabulous. In fact long after the lunch hour had passed, i was given the meals. It was a lovely gesture of the royal staff. I also got my own stationary for the one week I stayed there.

The light and sound show was fabulous too. The crystal palace which houses the lovely crystal pieces, furniture and bed was breathtaking.

The staff's hospitality goes beyond professional duties. With personal care, it made me feel like a queen. The Mewar history is rich with lovely stories. Lsten to them from the local staff.

Room Tip: ask if the room has any historical relevance
