“Returning guests at the Trident...equally lovely time”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

We are returning guests at the Trident. We had the most comfortable and pampered holiday yet again in November 2011. It felt like home away from home. The hotel staff is as courteous and though there were quite a few we recognized since our previous visit the new staff had the same warmth and smile. The rooms were equally welcoming and had a very comfy stay. Since we did not want to venture out in the city, much of our time, we spent a whole lot of family quality time near the pool. Long walks alongside the peacocks amidst the lush lawns was something we will come back for..among other things. We will return back this November 2012 again. Would love to see some interesting additions in the next couple of years like a tennis court or a mini basketball court...this will help us sweat out the delectable food that we keep having at the restaurants in the Trident.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lawns any day

We try hard to live up to our ethos and I am delighted that we have achieved that in small measure for you.

I came back to Trident Udaipur after a gap of 6 years... and found it to be exactly the same.. (for good).. Right from the time of checking in to check out the hotel staff made you feel comfortable with their warmth and service..
The hotel has large grounds, some of them are wooded and inhabited with peacocks and other species of birds. Also, the hotel is on the banks of Lake Pichhola, however it does not offer a view of the lake.. you can however walk up to a viewing spot from where u can see the lake.. Boat rides and lunch / dinner in the lake can be organised.. (didnt do it though for the lack of time ). The gardens of the hotel are very well maintained and manicured. The hotel also has a lovely swimming pool with inviting waters.

The rooms are nice and comfortable.. had a good nights sleep... ( rare for me when i sleep in hotel beds ).. The TV didnt seem to have all the channels though...

The breakfast was good, with a wide spread of indian and continental stuff.. The vegetarian stuff was limited... ( i usually go for the comfort food..) So doesnt matter really.

The biggest let down however was a lack of a proper full fledged gym. What is on offer in the gym is really an apology, with two treadmill in one small room and a few other training equipments in the other.. Also, the hotel does not have wet area vis - a steam and a sauna.. The management needs to do some thing about it... The pool as i mentioned earlier is very nice...
What i liked about the hotel apart from the service, is the policy of not accepting individual tips. There are tent cards in bathrooms, which discourages the guests to tip individual hotel employees, and to leave the gratuity in an envelope at the hotel counter while checking out.. so that it can be shared amongsts all staff... any exceptional service by an employee can be mentioned separately... think this is something worth emulating by other hotels..

Room Tip: Choose a room which overlooks the pool....

My wife and I stayed at Trident in Udaipur in Feb 2012 while on a trip meeting suppliers for our business. From check in to check out we found the service to be very good (as you would expect in any 5 star hotel). The room was very nice, with all the facilities you would expect. Bathroom was very nice (although no bath robes) and the room had all the mod cons including flat screen TV with all the channels (both Western and Indian). The breakfast is very good, with eggs and some Indian specialities such as Dosas made to order. One thing we really liked is that the hotel (via signs in the room) made it clear that they did not encourage tipping to individual staff members, and that if you felt that you had received good service during your stay that you could place some money in an envelope and give it to the counter upon checkout. You could also place in the envelope a note mentioning any names of staff that you felt provided good service. This comment might sound strange to some, but being regular visitors to India, and staying in 5 star Hotels around the country, it is a breath of fresh air to feel that you do not have to tip everyone at the place (not even the guy that simply salutes you everytime you enter or leave the place). Overall Trident was a very nice hotel to stay in, we will at some stage be going back to Udaipur (which by the way is a very beautiful city with the lakes and all the mountains and sightseeing), and we will have no hesitation in going back to stay there.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the pool, which was very nice, so you could suggest that when checking in.

After two weeks on the road we were looking forward to a little luxury and indulgence - The Trident did not let us down. The hotel shares its site with The Oberoi, a very sumptuous establishment that overlooks the lake. The Trident is more modest and whilst it has no views of the lake it is an easy walk from the hotel - or take the free shuttle service provided - and then a lovely cruise across the lake to where most tourist activity centres, rather than drive. The Trident also offers lunch/dinner cruises on the lake. We indulged ourselves with a coffee in the Oberoi bar: its worth it just for a look at the hotel. How the other half live.
The Trident is in the grand league with large, comfortable rooms (we had a lovely garden view) including adequate seating. The bathrooms are a pleasure.
Breakfast can be taken inside (most people did this) or outside, where it is quieter with fresh air. Food selection and quality is very good. We had evening meals twice. A buffet is available, which looked quite good, though we opted for a la carte. We were trying to manage our waistline but the food quality at the Trident simply meant the belt went out another notch!
Service was excellent with the staff friendly, professional and helpful.
The gardens surrounding the Trident were delightful and a wonderful place to try and walk off a few calories. The pool, poolside bar and restaurant were excellent and well maintained. There was a good book shop in the foyer with an excellent choice of post cards. Postage stamps also available. Our only complaint was the cost of wi-fi. Why do hotels persist in charging such exorbitant prices? We needed to recharge the batteries for the next stage of our India odyssey and The Trident did not let us down, it was the oasis we were looking for.

Trident is a large hotel with well polished marble floors and is situated about 6km from Udaipur's centre. Travel groups and also the Indian upper class love it. However, Udaipur is a very relaxing and calm city with a good choice of hotels (without polished floors :-)) and it's a pity staying so far away from it. The price is high, but the rooms are small, the air is sticky (since you can not open the windows). The breakfast was Ok, more Indian than European choices. The services they offer (like beauty spa, saree drapping, transporation) are expensive and are not of the 5 star quality. The food at night is excellent, try their dishes a la carte - if you are not as hungry (the buffet is RPS 1,000 per person). Trident offers its own world to experience India without sacrifying a lot, if you are looking for this, then this is a good place to stay.

This is a very competent and attentive hotel. The dinner buffet was excellent, noteworthy for the variety of dishes, for including things well beyond the usual buffet fare, and for the great flavors.
The staff cheerfully helped me deal with a difficult to wrap and transport package, ensuring it arrived home with the contents intact.
The tasteful and artistic decor of the public areas made them a pleasure to be in.
