“The best hotel we ever visited !!!”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

We spend 5 nights in the hotel and had the most wonderful experience! The hotel itself is extraordinary, with its magnificent buildings in a true palace style and the rooms are fitted for kings! We spent 3 nights in a room with a terrace directly at a magnificent pool, it was so peaceful and quiet, you could only hear the sound of all kind of different birds who come to drink from the water. The view on the City palace is breathtaking. Then we spent 2 nights in the Moghul Suite, superlatives aren't good enough to describe the room with its private pool.
Each and every member of the staff is absolutely competent and makes every effort with a smile to make your stay so very special. It was the best staff we ever had in a hotel and we have traveled around the world!
The dining experience is lovely, since you can sit outside on the gorgeous terrace and at night the buildings are lighted out, you get entertained by traditional Indian dancers and there's always musicians playing in the background. The kitchen staff creates wonderful dishes and always asks if you have any special requests. You can choose between fine French cuisine or traditional Indian food, which I can highly recommend. Also for the children there is lots to choose and they are treated like royalty!!!
Staying at this hotel, we felt like we were the most import people who ever stayed there, that's how the staff treats you, absolutely like royalty !!!
Our daughter who's 6 years old, felt like a little princess and she was very sad to go, since the staff treated her so friendly!
My husband celebrated his birthday while we were there and they made such efforts for us to make his day special !
We would like to thank the staff for a absolutely wonderful experience !!!!

Room Tip: The rooms at the pool are absolutely spectacular!

Not only is the property breathtaking, but the staff and hospitality are top notch! The competition between this hotel and the Taj Lake Palace is not even fair! The Oberoi wins hands down! We ate one night at the Lake Palace and wished we hadn't wasted an evening there. The hotel's view of the lake cannot be beat...you must book a room with private access to the pool. Imagine a view of the lake from your bubble bath and suddenly a peacock is right outside your window sitting on the ledge of the infinity pool. What I found most comforting though was the friendliness in the staff and their attentiveness. I wish I never had to leave!

Room Tip: Pick a room with a view of the lake and has access to the semi-private pool from your room.

If I had to imagine what heaven looks like, it would be this hotel ! It is truly "heaven on earth" . The property is breathtaking and as beautiful as its photos are, they don't do it justice. The staff is unreal .... It's like your in a dream and you don't want to wake up ! I just came back from a 10 day trip to north India to see Rajistan and the Taj Mahal . I stayed at all great hotels , but this place rivaled my feelings with seeing the Taj Mahal , it is that majestic and wonderful , I visited the spa for a Blissful 2 hour Ayurveda treatment and I thought for sure I was in Heaven . If you are lucky enough to go to this area of India you will be in for a real treat if you pick this hotel !!!!!! I would go back to India if I could
Just to experience it again !!!!!

This hotel has appeared on just about every "Best Hotel" list going and with good reason. It is staggeringly beautiful throughout - common areas, rooms, exteriors, gardens and pools and has the most amazing view over the lake towards the palace. The service is unobtrusive and impeccable - with butlers to help with setting up sunbrellas, or bring cool drinks as needed. And then there's the food - a signature dish - Lal maas, (spicy lamb) is so good it should be illegal. Service in the dining room was friendly, with many great suggestions for dishes to try. This culminated in a special tour of the kitchen and a chat with the chef - a highlight of our trip. The "swim out' rooms with patios are perfect paradises to while away a day or two of blissful indolence, but Udaipur is a fascinating place so make some time to visit the city, stroll its markets and see the sights. Udaivilas was the perfect place to finish off a long trip (if we'd started there we'd never have left!), we felt very pampered, and were rested ready for the long flight home.

Room Tip: If you can, book one of the super deluxe rooms with a view over the lakeand private steps to the poo...

The Oberoi Udaivilas is not a hotel - its a palace. They uphold the Rajasthani traditions and make the guests feel more than royal. This by far has been the best hotel I have ever stayed in - the staff are extremely well trained and make you feel so much at home. You can never have enough of this palace.

Room Tip: Do take the rooms with the pool and overlooking the lake.
