“An excellent stay in every aspect, much better than the Udaivilas”
Reviewed 6 March 2010

We went to look at both the Udaivilas and the Leela Palace for a treat for my birthday whilst we were in Udaipur. I cannot stress how disappointed we were with the service at the Udaivilas, they let us turn up to view the hotel only to tell us there weren't any rooms available for the night we had requested and staff were not very helpful. We had already decided that the Leela Palace was far more opulent, the room was much nicer, bathroom bigger and the staff were amazing. Also the decoration throughout the hotel was amazing. On learning it was my birthday the staff showered me with petals as we arrived - did I also mention we were taken by boat across the lake to the hotel. We were also given a free upgrade to a heritage room, the room was so spacious with a separate bathroom, toilet and shower and walk in robe. Our check in happened in the comfort of our room with snacks and drinks. The facilities in the room were state of the art and the bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get out of it. We were also given a birthday cake in our room and the best seat in the lovely indian restaurant for my birthday dinner. There were lots of nice touches in place by the hotel like a butler for each floor, staff being so knowledgeable about the area and surrounds and all the staff were very genuine and friendly. The poolside service was fantastic with fresh drinks and refreshing towels being brought to you. We both had treatments at the new spa which was wonderful and we didn't leave the hotel at all on our last day there as we were so relaxed. We have stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels but this surpassed anything we have ever experienced and will will stay with Leela group again in the future.

I am a local from Udaipur and left the city about 10 years back. Since then each year the city has seen one after other big 5 star chains opening up. But Leela is a league appart, of course, if you can afford it. The views from each room are just amazing and the amenities are just perfect. The staf is very helpful but sometimes come accross as too proud of the place. Overall a great place to relax and just enjoy the surroundings.

The hotel was tucked away at the end of a small narrow alley. The golf cart ride to reception revealed an amazing palace. Lots of attention from staff to cater for our needs. The room set-up allowed us to see Lake Palace from our bed. They even made sure we made it back to hotel when we had a late night out at a wedding. Location was perfect and close walking distance to sites and shopping. Huge walk in wardrobe in our room. Downside was expensive internet connection.

It couldn't have been better.

I was there for an official event. And cannot still feel nostalgic already about the excellent hotel.

Rooms - Excellent Overlooking the Lake. Contemporary Style.
Interior and Exteriors - Just amazing
Service - Leela Service is the best in India.
Pool and Spa- Still not fully developed. Hot Water Jacuzzi and Spa Suites were still under construction . NO Spa still.

Went to see the Udaivilas for Tea and did not find that as amazing as Leela. Udaivilas is old and Palatial. But Leela is new and Palatial too....

Will be back after a year to Leela
