“Beautiful hotel with unbeatable views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

This was a nice surprise during our India tour. The elegant and grand interiors are a reason to stay there -- and the unbeatable 360 degree views from the rooftop restaurant and lounging areas are a reason to not leave. The hotel is on a small hilltop and overlooks the Oberoi and Trident's gardens with views of the city palace and Lake Palace Hotel, the lakes and surrounding mountains. The staff was quite helpful (one housekeeping staff even tailored a salwaar kameez for me in 20 minutes including a fitting for no charge). An improvement for this type of hotel would be the inclusion of a small spa or the ability to have services come into the hotel. Using the Trident's services next door was ok, but not really a desirable option. We were initially concerned about being too far from the old city but it was only a quick tuk-tuk or car ride away and the location actually provides the best views of the old city. It was enjoyable and a good value for the money. We would definitely stay here on a return visit.

Room Tip: Our second-floor bedroom was opulently grand but cozy with a spa bathroom -- on par with western fou...

This hotel is a modernised noble home converted to a hotel. The carved wood and ivory doors Wood and sliver carved furniture ,carved wall panels and paintings all give you an idea of how the nobles lived.Service is friendly and efficient.
The roof top pool and dining area is romantic.Compared to other palace hotels this is very reasonably priced and good value

Room Tip: I preferred the ambience of the older section with the carved walls in the room and paintings to th...

Positives:
This was a palace that has been converted to a hotel. It is amazingly beautiful, our room had incredible hand painted murals that were very impressive.
The views on the roof were amazing.
The food was very good, although expensive for India (a given when staying at a hotel of this quality).
The staff was helpful and friendly.
Negatives:
The location is a bit weird, I felt we were in the middle of nowhere. It was a quick ride to get to the main part of the Udaipur however, it usually was only 70 rupees by auto-rickshaw. We walked it a couple of times too.
The bathroom smelled of mildew.

Very interesting hotel, in a former palace of cousin of the Maharaja of Udaipur. The room was richly decorated and very good amenities. The rooftop pool and restaurant has a wonderful view to a garden (of the neighbouring hotel Udaivilas) and also to lake Pichola and its palaces.
The staff is helpful.
The location is very good because its near the old city but it is in a very quiet area.

I stayed at Chunda Palace on Christmas Eve 2011 for 2N 3D with my family. We had a great time at the palace. All the rooms are unique in itself with versatile architecture in each one of them. We stayed in Grand Imperial Suit and Royal Imperial Suit. Apart from the rooms, the view from the 4th & 5th floor is amazing. Its a place to relax and enjoy peace outside of the tense life in metros. The food was also very good weather breakfast or dinner. The best part was that the staff was very supportive and courteous. We enjoyed more staying in the palace rather than visiting the tourist places in Udaipur. On the whole, we had a memorable getaway at the Chunda Palace. I will definately recommend this palace.

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique and equally good.
