“As good as they say!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

This is a stunning property in a beautiful setting. Not too far from the city and all the sights, yet removed from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Our semi private pool room was truly divine. The service at the hotel was perfect and in keeping with Oberoi's high standards, the service was personal and we were greeted by name everyday. We stayed here on part of our honeymoon and it certainly helped make our trip.

Room Tip: Semi private pool rooms to the right of the spa are very private but those to the left of the spa ha...

Very nice property in all aspects - staff, room, restaurants, facilities (pool, gym, gardens). Service is top notch and probably one of the best we've experienced even among other high-end hotels in Asia. The location on the banks of Lake Pichola with the view of the City Palace and Lake Palace makes this place an ideal setting. Special mention to the staff - from the doorman to reception, chefs to wait staff, GM to concierge - all were so obliging, friendly and helpful. Special mention to Dipen who served us all our meals at the restaurant. A truly memorable holiday and will definitely will be back.

First my apologies to the wonderful staff at this great hotel. Returning from holidays seems like a life time ago so just getting to my thoughts. I without reservation a fan of the Oberoi. Many years in 5 star properties and a tough critic I am always impressed by the class of this great chain, sorry GF at the Hyatt. This hotel is spectacular but with an understated class that is at the core of what this great group do so well. The Gm meet us and did the intro as he was at reception at the time, very personal, the restaurant manager, R, just delightful to two well travelled Australians and made our stay special. Go stay, walk the wonderful grounds, go to the wildlife sanctuary at the hotel, be entertained by the beautiful elderly but still cheeky guide and arrive by boat, check this tip out.

Room Tip: There is an option to arrive by boat, take it as it gives a wonderful perspective of this stunning p...

We recently spent three nights recovering from jet lag at this lovely property. Jet lag is inevitable, why not spend a few days being pampered while acclimatizing to local time? The Lake Palace was our first choice for sentimental reasons, but it was unavailable during the time of our stay. In retrospect, the Oberoi Udaivilas was a better choice for us with its spectacular grounds and modern, spacious facilities.

We were warmly welcomed by the hotel manager and escorted to our room for the check in formalities. No delays here...We had the entry level garden view room but because of its location we overlooked the middle of the garden area and had lots of light and sunshine until sunset. The room was very spacious and the bathroom, complete with soaker tub and separate shower area. The water pressure was excellent and the bath amenities were very generous and of good quality. The team who took care of our room (a team of four) was very attentive and we never needed to ask for anything.

The grounds are beautiful with stately peacocks wandering by. There is a small game reserve where we watched the resident game-keeper feeding the resident deer and wild boar.

We ate in the main restaurant during our stay, mostly opting for the outdoor seating which offered great views over the lake and the grounds Patio heaters were always available in the evening. The food was very good and the chef will adjust flavours and spice levels to guest preference. Alcohol, particularly foreign wines are very expensive due to heavy taxes on such products. There are Indian wines-the most commonly offered is Sula, which was not our favourite. We learned later of an Italian/Indian wine venture by Franchetti, but I do not recall it being available at this property. Too bad-it is far more drinkable than Sula.

This hotel prides itself on its service and it is very attentive, though in the restaurant it was frequently intrusive, especially at breakfast and lunch. There were far too many interruptions and a lack of understanding as to when to make subtle inquiries as to whether something more was required and when to give patrons privacy. The hotel could do some work in this area.

The hotel has a tip pooling policy and rather than tipping individuals, guests are encouraged to put an amount in an envelope at the end of the stay. Comment cards are provided and guests are encouraged to mention by name those that have offered exceptional service.

Overall we had a very good experience at this property. We are seasoned travelers and have been to India before (many times for spouse) We would not hesitate to recommend this property to other discerning travelers and I expect that we will return.

my fav stay for a resort cum hotel. i went there with my wife few months after our wedding. since we were a newly married couple, we were treated like king n queen.. we were sent a choc cake for celebration, personally attended by the chef.
they have complimentary bmw pick up from the airport which is uncommon for indian hotels. there r two ways to reach hotel.
1. by road
2. by road and then in a small boat across the lake.
request them the 2nd option in advance.
rooms r bigg n beautiful, bathroom is also well spaced. doesnt matter which room u take, u can still enjoy the beauty of all the areas.

Room Tip: take what your pocket allows.they have expensive to every expensive rooms.
