Udaipur in Rajasthan is an Indian jewel. The City emerges in magnificent style from Lake Pichola and then straggles off through winding streets and bazaars into the surrounding Aravalli hills. The utterly gorgeous palaces - the City and Lake Palaces dating back to the 16th century - and other architectural wonders, as well as the many ghats and temples that arise from the lake’s waters are breathtaking, especially at sunset when they turn a milky gold, and after dark when they shimmer, floodlit in the still waters. The modern Leela Palace Hotel is perfectly situated to make the most of all this beauty. Located across from the two ancient palaces, the openness of the hotel design allows guests to take in the views from the gardens, restaurant, terrace bar, and balconies that come with so many of the hotel’s 80 rooms and suites. Our favourite spot was the lakeside restaurant, the Sheesh Mahal, which served up delicious Indian cuisine in the evening. We ate there every night of our stay, marvelling at the views, the food, and the simply beautiful service. In fact, such service was characteristic of what we enjoyed throughout our stay at the Leela Palace: always helpful, respectful and kind, but never overwhelming or underfoot. I highly recommend this hotel and this city. It was the pinnacle of our visit to northern India and we would return in a shot.
