I loved this old hunting lodge. The rainforest covered hills overlook a lake teaming with wildlife including the striking kingfisher. If you have a cottage your room will look directly over the lake.
Behind the cottages there is a deer park and the best moment of my stay was having the opportunity to feed them. You can do this daily at 4.30pm.
There are also lots of peacocks, langur monkies, wild dogs, foxes....
The stables hold a huge amount of indian and British horses and another highlight of my stay was a member of staff seeing my interest and taking me to see the weeks old foals.
The food is very tasty and is served in huge portions so make sure you have an appetite!
The rooms in the cottages are a good size even with 3 beds in the room. They are clean by Indian standards with a good shower and hot water.
Location-is a few minutes drive from the city palace which is nice if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle.
The staff are friendly and always keen to help.
If I return to udaipur I will definitely stay here!
