When you travel to a destination which is like your second home most important is the accommodation & the food, so for us Ahmedabad people, Udaipur is the weekend home. This time while on vacation single intention of travel was of relaxing in luxury & so Sheraton Udaipur Palace Resort & Spa was the choice.
First of all the difference between hotel & resort is to be understood. According to Wikianswers `A hotel may consist of guest rooms, restaurants, a pool, meeting space and business services. A resort, by most standards, may include all the above, but must also include an associated recreational aspect, be it golf, spa, amusement park, skiing, etc.’. Unfortunately this resort is a business hotel with no facilities for recreation.
The entrance gate,terrace & lobby are very nicely made & the reception staff are very well trained & efficient ones. The rooms are of good size with most of the facilities required. The workmanship & maintenance is not of Sheraton class but they are nice.If you get the room on front side of the hotel just above the front lobby,you have the best of the rooms. If you get the room behind the lift area & rooms in the basement or ground floor you will have no view at all from the room. Luckily we had got the room in the front side & had a beautiful view of Fateh Sagar Lake. The view from the room was very much required as we were not planning to go outside in this hot summer.
The restaurant has a good & comfortable seating but again with no view but that is ok. The lavish breakfast menu was the best part of the trip. The varieties & the taste both were perfect. Bakery of resort is really nice giving good varieties of items in desserts. The live counters were disappointing with kebabs served as live counter ,instead live pasta or stir fry or BBQ would have been my choice. Both the days we had similar types of veg. kababs. Overall we all loved food at the resort.
The gym is also nice with routine equipments & the trainer at the service. The swimming pool was big disappointment. It is not well maintained & not decorated. The H2O is closed for maintenance but the glass windows of H2O are absolutely dirty,the pool water also not clean & no other facilities around the pool for non swimmers. No food or drinks(Snacks) available around the pool & also no umbrellas for the beach chairs. The garden in this area requires maintenance too.
At the summer special offer it is value for money.
Select the rooms facing the lake & preferably on the 1st or 2nd floor
