Oh My God!!! a feeling i had often during my stay. We stayed at the Leela Udaipur for 4 days in october. We were lucky to catch their October discounts and get a good deal else we would have stayed elsewhere. I am so glad we stayed here. This is one of the very Best Hotels i have ever stayed in.
Their property is perfect, brand new and swanky, its beautifully done up and the lake view rooms have a gorgeous view. Its on the banks of River Pichola, so you need to take a boat to the hotel. They have a beautiful jetty near City Palace. I have yet to see such an exclusive jetty. And the best thing about the Hotel is the staff. Starting from the driver who picked us up from the airport to the security guard to the Butler to the front office. They were impeccable in their service and made you feel very special. Like absolute royalty.
And its the little touches that make the stay perfect. The courteous staff at the jetty. The welcome rose petals shower and picture.
They have a beautiful pool and everyday they would give us a complimentary ice box with yummy iceteas and fresh fruits while we swam. I was travelling with a 2.5 year old and what was heartwarming was that by the second day everybody called her by name.
Any hotel staff who saw us carrying even a small bag would offer to carry it. if we were walking in the sun, somebody would materialise with an umbrella.
The food was excellent. Their Seesh Mahal retaurant serves excellent Indian food, and is also very popular, as on the last day when we wanted a reservation it was fully booked. but they were kind enough to serve us food from Seesh Mahal in their Dining Room.
The private dining concept which to most of us is room service was a new concept to us. When you order room service, they do not just send food up. They send a server who will set the table in your room with table mats plates and cutlery and even serve you in the room.
so there are tons of little thoughful things the hotel did and it would take forever to write, but all in all if in Udaipur Leela is the place to stay.
