The Leela Udaipur is a fantastic property situated at a great location. The location of the hotel is such that all guests are transferred by a boat to the hotel, which makes the arrival an experience in itself. I loved the fact that the check-in process is undertaken in the room itself, so that one doesn’t have to hang around the lobby to check-in.
As far as the hotel is concerned, the management has infused every part of the hotel in luxury – from the rooms to the corridors to the lobby and even the pool and the gym. The rooms are really spacious, furnished tastefully and at the same time have all the amenities one requires. The hotel gets well lit at night and you are also treated to gorgeous views of the Lake Palace, the City Palace and the Jag Mandir. The restaurants and the pool area are great places to relax and you are pampered constantly by the ever-friendly staff. The staff are simply wonderful and make sure that ever demand of yours is met promptly, especially the staff at both the restaurants in the hotel. Even the chef who came to meet us was really courteous (which isn’t the case with many chefs!). One of the staff even helped us with shopping!
The food at both the restaurants is top-class – especially the Indian selection, which is probably better than most places I’ve eaten at. My only chance to crib is at their breakfast selection, which is fairly limited compared to similar category of hotels. The cold selection can get really monotonous, especially if you stay at the hotel for 3-4 days, so that is one area which definitely requires improvement.
The spa is just outstanding – easily the best I’ve ever been to. It is expensive, but rest assured, worth every penny.
It is a very expensive hotel, no doubt, and I’d wish their room prices would come down by a little at least. But overall, we had a blast at this hotel and it is definitely a place I would want to go back to.
