“magical location, great staff, wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2011

From the moment you cruise up to the palace in the hotel's boat, the palace takes your breath away. It is exquisite--the shimmering mosaics, the gorgeous lily pond courtyard, the views. The staff is fantastic--my husband and I arranged a vow renewal ceremony on the pontoon in the lake, and it was gorgeously decorated with flowers, perfectly arranged, and followed by an extraordinarily delicious private dinner! The food here was unparalleled (we only ate at the Indian restaurant). If it's in your budget, you're crazy if you don't stay here.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and cannot put into wording how magical the city of Udaipur is, particularly the Lake Palace. Spectacular.

The hotel bears Gorgeous setting. It offers warm welcome, which really touched the heart. As only hotel guests are allowed on the lakeside, there is no unnecessary crowd and noise. Something pleasant and hence gives relaxing experience; The hospitality of the staff is remarkably good. Facility wise it caters you all most all infrastructure of world class which includes pool, restaurant, etc.

The exclusive parts of the hotel are roof terrace and bar. You really feel relaxed at both the places.

Gorgeous setting and great welcome. There is no one apart from hotel guests allowed past the jetty on the lakeside, so hotel feels very exclusive and relaxing

The staff were excellent, and you always felt that nothing was too much trouble. There was a nice pool and nice restuarants, including a roof top restuarant

You can also access the roof terraces to relax & for general view, there are a couple of internal court yards. The bar that was well stocked and operated likes quality hotel bar ( our only real well stocked bar experience in India in three weeks)

Food wise:
1) Indian Restuarant - great service and great food
2 )Breakfast eggs benedict was perfect, and they made fresh orange juice on request
3) Lunch - beef burger and non-veg club sandwich great

On our second evening we went to a special event at palace hosted by royal family, whic was suggetsed and arranegd by the hotel staff

To show how good the service was, they found a sunglasses case with a broken zip in our room (when tidying up our mess) and they took it away, repaired it and returned it ! How's that for amazing service. They also did an amazing job of tidying our general mess in our room

Room Tip: Make sure you have a day lazing around the hotel

The enchantment starts when you stand on the shore of the lake and gaze at the palace for the first time. The boat ride follows and then the entrance into this architectural gem of the orient. Afternoon drinks are served on the patio along with live sitar and traditional dancing.
The rooms are majestic. Ours on the upper floor had a beautiful balcony, a bathroom the size of a hotel room and complimentary bottles of wine. Must must must.

No words were spoken arriving at this magnificent hotel. Although we had some expectations, after reading about it, we had never ever thought this would be as good as it became for those two nights.
A huge favor done by Mr Rajat, from Shanti Home, he managed to get us a room here, the hotel was actually fully booked.
Boat trip over the lake, entering this fairytale place, rose petals “raining” over us and the booking manager welcoming and guided us around the hotel. We got an upgrade to a suite, every suites in the hotel has a name, and through the windows we could se the sunset. You feel like a royal sleeping in the suite, just wandering around this beyond your imagination surroundings, with an ambience only seen in a dream.
The staff were attentive, polite, smiling, giving you top service at all times. Specially the bartenders gave us a really good experience! This stay was unforgettable and visiting Udaipur, this is the place to stay.
