“Will definitely be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

A quaint little place on the outskirts of Udaipur City. Amazingly beautiful surroundings, amazingly beautiful place and amazingly beautiful people.

The quiet and peace at the place really steals the show. A perfect getaway from the hustle-bustle of a busy city life.

We stayed in the "tribal room". The balcony faced west, and was perfect for viewing the glorious sunsets amidst the nature's lap.

The food is delicious. The breakfasts, and the snack lunches were particularly brilliant.

Being on the outskirts of the city, there is a trade-off of traveling more. But, not once did it occurred to us as a pain.

The family takes care of you very pleasantly, and are very helpful.

Will definitely be back in Udaipur, just for staying with the Mountain Ridge.

Room Tip: The "Monsoon Suite" is excellent. Go for this is it's available. Otherwise, all the ro...

Mountain Ridge is the perfect place to stay in Udaipur. The hosts at Mountain Ridge are so welcoming they really ensure you have a special holiday. Each bedroom has its own balcony which looks out over the hills surrounding Udaipur, making a wonderful view each time you wake up. Bathrooms and showers are very good and there is lots of communal space where you can eat, read, chill and relax. The food is excellent and plentiful. We will never forget what a wonderful holiday we had here.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very good indeed - one has an especially large patio.

Mountain ridge is a wonderful homestay, a little bit outside of Udaipur. The owner Piers is very friendly and helpful; he is just such a nice chap. We really felt like family during the 6 nights staying there. It's a place you actually don't wanna leave at all anymore. The food is delicious and ranges from indian to italien cuisine; we liked the variety. It's one of those places where everybody starts to talk to everyone. You can book a guide and go on a hike, which is very recommendable. It only takes a short tuktuk-ride to the city. We stayed in the room Monsoon Palace Suite, which is the most expensive one. It's an incredible beautiful big room with a fireplace. But also the other rooms looked very nice. There are also nice balconies, where you can sit and watch the sun go down. It's totally worth going, i recommend it highly.

We have started in Udaipur and with Mountain Ridge it could not have been better. Rajasthan cities can be a bit overwhelming, so it is great if you can take a Tuktuk out of the city to this quiet place in the country. It is a beautifully designed house, with Piers and his Nepalese family taking care of you as a friend of the family. You can lunch or dine together with the other guests at the big table, outside, and they cook great stuff: mix of Indian and Western food. During meals you can share your travel stories with other guests. Mountain Ridge is in the midst of beautiful nature, great rooms, very friendly staff and Piers!

Mountain Ridge is a great mix of many positives...the location, the building, the views, the company of other guests, and the most important of it all, the host and his team. The geniality of Piers, and the helpfulness of Amrit, Raju, and all the other staff complements the offerings of the place beautifully...whether it is the chai, or the breakfast table in the open, or the evening drinks near the fire. The best part of the stay in the very comfortable, clean and hospitable surroundings is the time that one gets to spend with people from many different parts of the world, each with their own perspective, stories and experience. This is something unique to Mountain Ridge...it is neither so big that most guests spend their time in anonymity, nor so small that only one or two groups or families stay at one point of time. We extended our stay by one day [Piers was most considerate and kind in letting us stay in the Monsoon Suite, whose balcony has the most breathtaking view of the land around], and we wish we had more time to spend.

Room Tip: Choose the Monsoon Suite or the Sajjan Suite.

To start with the good first, the staff is brilliant. They anticipate what you might need. When we woke up the next day, they asked us if they should call a taxi or drop them off to town, every single accompaniments with your food appear (important to enjoy a good meal). The owners are the most awesome people. Very nice, very humble. Rooms and everything else was fine. The location was a bit of an issue, its a little outside town. Ask the owners what a standard can fare should be to this place.

A great peaceful place outside the city but yet close enough for day trips to Udaipur. It's like that vacation home you dream about minus any hassles as Piers (owner) and his team make sure there are none. Lovely views, plenty of relaxation and self-time, delicious food, fun conversations and opportunity to meet new interesting fellow travelers is what you'll find at Piers' place.

Its a perfect getaway for travelers like us with busy lives in Delhi. We needed a 3 days getaway and wanted to visit Udaipur, yet being in another busy city during peak tourist time was not so attractive. We are glad to have found Mountain Ridge on Trip Advisor and the great reviews definitely helped. There are no hassles of advance / online payments or check-in & check-out time (unless necessary). Book a room and show up - its that simple. We had travelled by the night train, Mewar Express, both ways and that entailed reaching Udaipur early morning and leaving in the evening. The flexible check-in and check-out time worked perfectly for us as we got 3 completely relaxed days at Udaipur.

Staying at Mountain Ridge (Monsoon Room) enriched our Udaipur experience and we were able to enjoy the city in all its glory because we were relaxed and just 20 minutes from home - Mountain Ridge.

Room Tip: Monsoon Room is a lovely and large room with great views and privacy. A working fireplace warms up t...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Your first impressions of Mountain Ridge will probably be the space, peace, quiet and the breathtaking panoramic views. After a short acquaintance, you will feel that Mountain Ridge is just like home. There is nowhere quite like it for perfect relaxation, and though the city is merely a few minutes' away, Mountain Ridge is in another world...Mountain Ridge occupies the top of a high rocky bluff, just outside the ancient village of Sisarma. On the eastern side is a mountain that separates Sisarma from Lake Pichola and to the south our land is bordered by protected forestry land. To the west are the beautiful hills and valleys of the majestic Arawalli Range; with remote, scattered tribal settlements that are there waiting to be explored. To the north, rises Bansdara Mountain, topped by the formidable Monsoon Palace. The City of Udaipur is only a few minutes' away, so you are not far from the shops and landmarks, but the short distance from the city to Mountain Ridge makes all the difference in the world as far as the tranquility is concerned. The sounds of horns, brakes, loudspeakers and other noise pollution seem a million miles away. Mountain Ridge enjoys balmy days of fresh air and peace, and delightful velvety nights of gentle breezes and only the sound of crickets. There is so much you can do - swimming, trekking, going on a village safari, bird watching, mountain walking, having a massage or just sitting & relaxing with your favorite book with a soothing sounds of nature. Our cook takes a pride in preparing and serving mouth-watering Indian and International cuisine, and the rest of the staff are ever ready to ensure you have a pleasant and comfortable stay. Altogether your stay at Mountain Ridge will recharge you and provide you with happy memories of a rarely seen facet of India. ... more   less
