“The best hotel I have ever seen - an enchanting palace”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

If you want a once-in-a-life experience of the best hotel in the world - extravagant living, fabulous food and over the top customer service - stay here. Worth every penny. The pictures do not do this hotel setting justice as it is much better; situated on a beautiful lake in a quiet and very serene setting on 22 acres. You arrive by boat...and don't want to leave.
The spa and massage were a disappointment for the cost but the hotel/food was the very best of the best. Small but very nice gift shop. The hotel manager meets you at the door when you arrive - Swiss of course. You don't have to lift a finger or think about one thing when you are there. The hotel-sponsored guide + BMW were a wonderful additional to our luxe travel in Udaipur. We had Butler Service 24/7 - along with fresh flowers, chocolates, cookies, fruit in our suite + private pool + view of the lake.
This is a hotel experience not to be missed if you are traveling to India. Go for it....!

Room Tip: Use and ask for your Platinum American Express upgrade - we had a out of this world suite with 24/7

We had a fantastic stay at the Udaivilas. A beautiful property of the oberoi. Make sure you try and get a lake facing room. It is just beautiful especially as you face the sunrise. The hotels service combined with its beautiful architecture makes it a perfect setting for a great break. Do make sure to visit the sanctuary just next to the hotel which has deers, peacocks and wild boars.

Room Tip: Take a lake facing room.... its worth every bit of it.

We ended up switching our hotel to the Oberoi at the very last minute as we were celebrating a special birthday and wanted a memorable property to stay at. This property exceeded our expectations in every way. We had a beautiful room overlooking the lake and with a semi-private infinity pool to enjoy. The thing that stands out most however, aside from the gorgeous grounds and architecture, is the attentive and personal service from every employee from the GM on down to the doorman. We are spending almost a month in India on holiday and this hotel is far and away our best stay to date. While very expensive it is definitely worth the splurge for a special occasion.

We stayed here in July 2011 for two nights. Truly exceptional place. A real five star experience right from the boat ride to the hotel for check in and the individualised check in. The rooms were great as were the ameneties. We used the pool and the spa and the restaurants. All were excellent. A bit on the pricey side, but we thought that we deserved a bit of a splurge and we were not disappointed.
The staff were very attentive to every detail. We had a broken lock on our suitcase and one call to the concierge and out of no-where a handy man appeared and solved our problem! The rooms were spotless. We cannot find anything to fault this place. What is more interesting is the manager himself walking around during breakfast taking the time to speak to each person making them feel welcome and important!
