i stayed here end of Feb and no better words to describe this hotel than opulent and grand. no tips policy here makes the hotel more convenient as the service standard here is priceless. everything is done here to make you feel like a king. even the locals regard this as the best property in udaipur. birds chirping in the 20 acre garden is the only sound one hears during the stay. - Ashwin

Room Tip: take a lake facing room and not garden facing.

My family and I spent six days at Udaivillas, there were six of us. It is hard to summarize the brilliant stay that we had. From our pick-up at the railway station to every facet of the hotel every detail large and small was taken care of. The website does not do this hotel justice, which is kind of nice because it's like opening a present! Every member of the staff were kind attentive and went beyond expectations to make our stay incredible. The trips that we took with guides, the drivers were incredible and their local and regional knowledge was awesome. The food was exceptional, the rooms overlooking the lake and city breathtaking, try the yoga(brilliant teacher). Yes all this was fantastic but what really makes the hotel stand out is, again, the most amazing, kind, attentive and considerate staff. My family loved them all. Thank you for sharing with us and giving us such deep and lasting memories.

This was my fifth Oberoi hotel- I stayed in Meena House in Cairo, in Delhi, in Amarvilas in Agra and Rajvilas, Jaipur. I am a hotel owner myself and have become an Oberoi fan- the service at the Oberoi is unbeatable...

In Udaipur, we had considered staying at the Lake Palace and the Kempinski but opted for Udaivilas because of previous experiences with Oberoi and were very happy with our choice. The advantage of Udaivilas versus Taj Lake Palace and Kempinski is the beautiful green, well kept gardens ( I witnessed the GM Jan Tibaldi checking the holes in the hoses personally!) and landscaping. If you love nature, do not hesitate and stay at Udaivilas.

The service and the staff is superior. Compliments to the selection and training of young, intelligent, good looking and warm team members (you do not come across anyone older than 30 years of age yet their performance is excellent)
. Make sure to wake up early and watch the sun rise from the room terrace.

Last but very important: The hotel had the best food we had in India; the chef gave us a selection of spices when he visited our table and we are grateful for that!

Thank you Jan and thank you Oberoi for always unforgettable holidays...

Room Tip: The rooms with direct pool access and the lake and City Palace view are a dream (worth paying the di...

I take an annual trip to India for holidays and try to always include a stay in this beautiful property easily one of the best hotels in the world. Eveyone from GM downwards go out of their way to make your stay a truly memorable one. I have been going there for some years now and am amazed at how they are able to maintain this very high standard year after year.

My husband and I added Udaipur to our winter visit of the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur). And am so glad we did as staying at the Oberoi made our India tour truly unforgettable. It is not a huge hotel but it is huge in details and service. Truly elegant and warm. I enjoyed pausing at the Candle Room each evening where they light several candles that give a golden reflection on the mosaic ceiling dome. The room and bathroom were generous in size. The mattress was ultra comfortable and the furnishings well thought of and designed,
Most of the meals we took in the hotel and the outdoor setting was truly a delight with a fantastic view of the river. And yes, the GM was often around to see and chat with the guests, making sure that our needs were met. He sets a good example to the staff and this could be the reason why service is consistenly outstanding. I fell in love with Oberoi Udaivillas and we hope to return someday with our children

We stayed at the Taj in Mumbai and loved the hotel , and then we went to Rajasthan and stayed at Udaivilas and we loved it even more ! Architecture , staff , interiors , gardens and landscape were among the best we have seen in a hotel . I have never seen a more hands on GM than Jan Tibaldi and that probably explains why this is such a well maintained hotel .Our dining experience was magical with beautiful views of the lakes and some of the best Indian food ( and we are great curry eaters !). On our return trip we told the Taj managers , they have some catching up to do haha

Room Tip: WE did a tour and was shown some lakeside rooms and I would have loved to stay there next time round

This is an elegant place to chill out but quite removed from the sights and activities of Udaipur. Nice pools and grounds to hang out in although really spread out so lots of walking. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed with patios. The food was good not great, although the truffle scrambled eggs were sublime. But, given the choice I wish we had been in the Lake Palace which looked like it was more connected to an authentic Indian experience in this region.
