“None can come close to this level of finesse”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

So here I a resident of udaipur wanted to take my clients for a nice dinner....so we booked Leela....what a shocker(read my review about leela). So pissed we landed in Oberoi Udaivilas as my past experiences have always been uber cool at Udaivilas. I have stayed in few Vilas property myself and Udaivilas just add the oomph factor to it.
The girl 'Priya' (the manager from Himachal Pradesh) was not only courteous but super efficient. Not only she remembered all our names (we were 9 of us) she arranged the tables within 5 minutes. Gave us a sweet spot overlooking lake. The drinks menu was exhaustive as per udaipur standard and the selection of scotch was just perrrfect.
My clients loved and my son as always was happy to back. He was the one who kept saying dad lets go to Udaivilas, I don't like leela. Came out Leela also never liked him.
Anyways super food, super ambience and the service is what sets it apart and above all.
Keep the good work flowing.

We arrived at the Oberoi Udaivilas with high expectations, which were met and exceeded in every way. The service from the moment you step onto the premises is extremely attentive without being stuffy or overbearing. The grounds and the buildings that comprise the hotel are stunning and the view from our room across Lake Pichola and City Palace was simply breathtaking. We really enjoyed the morning yoga class next to the pool taught by an amusing but informative instructor. All our meals were of a very high standard. The Rajasthani thali at the al fresco restaurant was a particular highlight. There are few superlatives unused to describe this hotel. It is that good.

Room Tip: Semi-private pool rooms have stunning views

We went in 2004 for our honeymoon. What a wonderful experience. We were greeted at the gate. They knew our names and we were checked in right away. The staff was helpful, friendly and surpassed an kind of hospitality that I have experienced. Our room was lovely. overlooking the lake, with a beautiful bathroom and lovely furnishings. To be sure, this is a very expensive hotel, but you will get much for your money here that in many other parts of the world.

The Oberoi Udaivilas is a superb resort, located at Lake Pichola with smashing views of Udaipur's City Palace and the Lake Palace. The resort is an architectural marvel with spectacular floor designs in marble and granite. It is ca. 10 years old with top-notch facilities.

The friendliness and hospitality of the staff is outstanding, you immediately feel the warmth and genuine affection of the people, be it giving you directions if you get lost in the huge hotel complex, arranging sightseeing trips to the many intersting sites in the area, preparing exquisite menues either Indian or continental-Italian cuisine, providing a delicious in-room breakfast when we had a very early departure flight out of Udaipur, etc., etc.

Room Tip: don't bother, just go and enjoy!

The royal treatment begins as soon as you enter the property with rose petals literally falling from the sky. The Udaivilas property is a magnificent sprawling property with reflecting pools everywhere. It is the height of calmness and relaxation.

The rooms are beautiful. My room had a private but connected pool that was luxurious. The downside is there weren’t many people at the two large pools. The hotel has two additional pools, one for families and the pool by the spa where children are not permitted. This property is perfect for a romantic and secluded get-away.

The service at the pool was extraordinary. The gentleman brought an amenity tray with sun tan lotion, water, fruit kabobs and a wet rolled towel that was infused with jasmine. When I finished my book, he immediately, offered me a copy of Tatler. The hotel service is excellent.

The spa is beautiful and my massage was amazing.

I mentioned to the restaurant hostess that I was hoping for contemporary Indian food like I experienced at in Delhi. (A contemporary Indian restaurant is opening at the hotel.) The next thing I know, the Executive Chef comes into the dining room to meet me. When he realizes that I am looking for a molecular, Michelin star dining experience, he offers to prepare a special lunch on the day I leave.

I was blown away by the experience. It was exactly what I wanted and the fact that it was specifically prepared for and only me is beyond comprehension. Every single dish was FABULOUS. There are no words to begin to describe the meal and the effort that went into preparing this endeavor. I was floored. This was one of the best meals that I have ever had. I cannot begin to thank the chef for this special treat.

This is the type of service that Oberoi is known for. No other hotel provides anything close to this level of service. The Oberoi team work truly as a team to make your holiday amazing. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: The property is sprawling so if you need to be near the pool, spa or front desk then mention that in...

This was the last of the Oberoi hotels we stayed in during our recent holiday in India. After arriving by boat, we were meet by Vincent (GM) and his staff at the main entrance; yet again, the superb Oberoi personal touch was very evident. It is almost as if the staff know what you want before you know it yourself.

We had upgraded to a suite at this hotel and all I can say is WOW - a dining room, lounge, study area, magnificent bedroom and a bathroom to die for (separate shower that also doubled as a steam room). We also had our own private swimming pool which was complimented by a raised private outdoor dining area (this was used to celebrate my birthday - great meal and service beyond words).

The hotel has been built with truly stunning architecture; each public room is stunningly decorated and is appointed in such a way that it never spills over into another part of the hotel.

The food in the restaurant was delicious (again a good choice between Indian or Western) and the service was to the very highest of Oberoi standards.

The grounds, in keeping with other Oberoi hotels, were immaculate and beautifully laid out.

All in all, a hotel that is up there with the very best - try it and you will see what I mean.

PS: Vincent and staff - thank you so much for a wonderful 50th birthday stay (and all you did for us after our flight was cancelled - we will not forget this one).

Room Tip: The rooms with the semi private pools give the best view over Lake Pichola.
