Our two night stay at the resort was good from some perspectives and not so good from other.
Lets start with the good ones.
Location is in the middle of a big serene lake, surrounded by mountains with very good connectivity to the shore by motor boats available on demand virtually at all hours. If you get up early and go across the lake, you can see hundreds of cormorant birds lined up on water surface and taking off in a symmetrical pattern as you approach them. Sunrise through the mountains over the lake looks spectacular when you watch it happening from your room's lobby.
Staff is good and cordial.
Rooms are large and generally fine, but do not have the premium feel. Bathrooms are below par. We had to change our room after one night stay, as the hot water problem couldn't be fixed.
In an hour, you're done with walking up & down the resort. Then do what ? Games room is badly lit. We asked for at least one more bulb to be put up so that TT ball becomes visible on the table. Games room lack proper management.
DJ is arranged occassionally and is well managed.
Camel & row boat rides are available and well managed.
Location of the resort is about 60 km away from the city. So it becomes too time consuming if you wish to see Udaipur city or other forts. Conveyance for this 60 km up & 60 km down has to come from the city. so you end up paying double money for the km you've travelled.
Food is average. Restaurant lacks fine decor.
I'd recommend this place for one trip, as a different kind of experience. Stay and enjoy this place while staying there on entire duration - without thinking of travelling up & down the city/forts.
