“Resort worthy of 7 stars”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

My husband and I spent 3 nights here as part of a recuperative process following suregery in India from 29 Sept till 2 October 2011. We couldnt have chosen a better place to relax and unwind , enjoying the beautiful surroundings after such a stressfull period.
Whilst our purpose was purely relaxation , this property is a perfect location for a honeymoon, anniversary celebration, romantic getaway or for those looking for a few days of indulgence.
When planning this weekend getaway, I had a choice of 3 luxury properties on Lake Pichola but am so glad I chose the Leela ,for it most certainly seemed to be the best as far as location, view and accessibility.
Our magical weekend began with airport pickup and a relaxing drive in a comfortable hotel sedan to the jetty area where a hotel boat waited to transport us across the lake early in the evening just as all the surrounding places and properties were lit up. The welcome was amazing and even more so authentic as we disembarked at the Leela Palace to the soothing sounds of Rajasthani Tabla musicians. The flrst impression of the resort was overwhelming, serene and with a profound sense of luxury and uniqueness.
we were immediately taken up to our room on the 3rd floor whioch enjoyed a beautiful view of the lake, Adjacent property of The Oberoi Udaivillas and Aravali mountain range beyond.Each floor has its own butler service which is very prompt to respond to any request almost withing minutes. The rooms were spacious and very tastefully furnished with one of the most comfortable beds and objects de art, as well as a small lounge area stretching to the balcony with an incredible view. A big plus were the ample sized bath and shower areas as well as a spacious walk in closet for baggage storage and mirrors galore.
This room was equipped with every amenity one could require and the fruit and traditional sweets provided each day just gave it the extra touch.
The entire hotel complex is so beautiful and tasteful in decor that one had the feeling of meandering through an art gallery. As this hotel is situated directly on the lake with immediate access to the water ways , I would rate it the best from all the properties aroud the lake. A beautiful water feature graces the main open area and easily accessible from the main restuarant and its from here that one has magnificent views of the awesome City Palace complex, The Taj lake Palace and some of the other well know properties.The main pool is beautiful and huge and has two large sculputured peacocks gracing the entrance.
We had a wonderful spa experience in large tented cabins and the spa grounds are rather extensive .
Our dining experience was superb and each dish was prepared and presented in top quality masterchef style. Our tastebuds were certainly subjected to an amazing delightful adventure as each dish was made to perfection and very flavourful.
The service was outstanding and commendable, from the meet and greet at airport to the welcome at the jetty, butler service, inroom check in, housekeeping, doormen, pool attendants, restuarant waiters and transport staff.
Apart from relaxation, we use the hotel private TUK TUK to transport us on our tours to the City Palace and Vintage museum as well as shopping in the very quaint lanes of Udaipur. This city is certainly a tourist paradise and one can spends hours browsing the narrow lanes seeking out souveniers and colourful embroidered textiles.
A highlight of our stay was a trip to the Monsoon Palace high up in the hills with sweeping and panoramic views of the city and lake beyond.
This was my second visit to the city, the last in the mid 1980`s when i was still a teenage girl on vacation with my parents. Although the city is more developed now and many more properties stand out, it has not lost its original charm.
There is nothing more beautifu land romantic than enjoying the view at night across the lake as the lights twinkle in the horizon and on the lake.
This has got to be one of the best resorts we have expereinced thus far, having travelled extensively in the past.
I will most certainly give the Leela Palace a 7 star rating.. I couldn`t find even the slightest fault even if I looked for it.
Highly recommended and a must visit for anyone who is in need of indulgence and pampering.Huge praises for the staff who went that extra mile to make our stay so memorable.

Room Tip: High floor , preferably ask for a room facing the Lake front that has view of the City Palace as wel...

This is one of the most beautiful hotels in the world! The service is great. The staff very friendly. The food is excellent! The rooms are wonderful. We had two rooms with connecting door overlooking the lake. Every detail in the room was well considered. The swimmingpool area is very nice.
We loved it! We will go back!
