“Oustanding is an understatement”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2010

I really can't speak highly enough of the Oberoi. In fact it has tainted any future hotel stays for life! This hotel really does deserve to be in the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. The buildings themselves are amazing but, combined with service that anticipates every need means, you really do feel amazing. The food was gorgeous - no buffet breakfast...instead they serve you anything and everything at your table. Dinner was outdoors with live music. But again I have to say the service was truly memorable. The rooms glamorous too. Spa treatment gorgeous. And where else has staff bringing you a cold towel and fresh water while you're on the treadmill. If you can splash out on the expense, it's worth every penny.

By the way, we didn't indulge in the semi-private pool room, though they look fantastic. In low season the standard room was fineas there may not be many people by the big pool anyway .... but if you're tempted I'd say you'll love it.

We have recently returned from a 4 night stay at the Oberoi in Udapiur. We were travelling with a 1 year old and a 3 year old.

We could not fault any aspect of this hotel. It was truly amazing. Our children were treated like movie stars! They were greeted with bathrobes and slippers and biscuits with their names on. There was a basket full of baby products (which were sorely needed after a month in India) when we arrived. The kids were taken on a treasure hunt through the hotel grounds and were given wooden toys when we left. They even made my daughter's favourtie pink ice cream each day for her!

My daughter was sick the first day we arrived and the hotel arranged for a doctor in 15 minutes and were so helpful and nice about cleaning up the mess. They didn't make us feel bad in the slightest about it. Nearly every staff member in the hotel enquiried after her health for our entire visit.

Our room was big enough for all of us and backed on to a semi private pool. Everything was first class in the room.

We have never eaten such good Indian food. We dined at the hotel each night as it was just so good. When we enquiried about some of the curries the chef took us on a tour of the kitchen and gave us his email address so that he could send us some recipes.

We did not think this hotel was that expensive considering the hotel itself and the absoluly brilliant service.

I had the best body treatment I have ever had at the day spa.

I can't wait to go back!!

We stayed at the Oberoi Udaivilas whilst in Udaipur during a recent tour of Rajasthan. This is an absolutely stunning hotel with beautiful grounds and wonderful views over Lake Pichola to the Lake Palace Hotel and the City Palace. I think you are supposed to arrive at the hotel by boat across the lake but unfortunately due to the fact that there has been hardly any rain for two years the lake has shrunk somewhat so this is not possible at present. We had decided to try to upgrade our room from a premier room to a lake view room (as you then get your very own semi-private bit of swimming pool) but hadn't managed to do this before arriving. We were taken to our Premier room (which was lovely) but asked if we could upgrade the room - the very helpful gentleman said he would check if a room was available as they only had a limited number. He got straight back to us to say there was a room available but it wouldn't be ready until a little later so they allowed us to stay in the Premier room in the meantime. The Lake View room was stunning with an outside terrace all to yourself. We sunbathed by the pool while watching black kites and honey eaters and we even had a couple of finches making a nest in the umbrella - they weren't bothered by us in the least. There is also a nature reserve where you can go to watch deer and wild boar being fed in the evenings. On our last day we came across a 19th century hunting lodge in the grounds and were given a guided tour by the caretaker - Mr Roop Singh Ji - who very proudly told us he was 84 years old and had been caretaker there for about 40 years - amazing man. The food was excellent and we ate out every evening on the terrace overlooking the lake. We would go back to this hotel at the drop of a hat.

if you want to stay in an hotel romantic with fine food ,excellent service and top location, then this is your spot in India! the city is so nice the people so sweet , a dream place. Be only careful that the lake has water only after the monsoon , when I was there April the lake was dried and the lake palace was a mud palace!
