This is a good property with a nice view especially if you take lake view instead of valley view (but you will have to shell out some extra bucks for that). Among st other 5 star and luxury hotels, it is most reasonable one with all amenities, good service, reasonably good food, heritage property to give you the royal feel and additional activities like puppet show, horse dance etc. to keep you entertained.

Me and my friends along with our wives went here before the lunch for having some light snacks and drinks. We chose to sit out in the garden as the climate was pleasant. (start of the monsoons in Udaipur). The restaurant is open for the outside guests.

The outside sitting has an amazing view of the Udaipur city and the huge city lake. The Hotel is situated on a small hill so the view is all the more beautiful. We were also lucky to see a daily ritual of "horse dancing", where a professional rider makes his horse dance on drum beats just outside the entrance.

We had ordered some french fries and Bruchettas along with our drinks. Boys had beer and gals had cocktails. Cocktails were presented beautifully. The snacks were also decent. However, the snacks were quite pricey. But then the hotel belongs to The Lalit group.
Service was very good. The attendant didn't hesitate to bring extra chips along with our drinks on our request.
Overall nice experience.

The hotel is just opposite to the Fateh Sagar lake. The ambience and rooms are excellent and give you the luxorious feeling. But the hotel miss some basic 5 star facilities like swimming pool and a good working gym etc.

The Laxmi Villa, Udapur or Lalit was a nice heritage property. It has a feel of a small heritage palace with good view of the Fateh Sagar lake from their lawn.

Rooms were OK and bathroom was clean. However I felt that staff was a little less and not attentive. Ours was an early morning check out and even after multiple calls no one came to pick our luggage. Finally we carried out our luggage on our own. Breakfast buffet had good variety but taste was very average. There was no pool in the hotel which I guess appears on their pictures.

They had nice folk dance, puppet, bagpiper and horse show within hotel campus.

Overall it was just an OK hotel to stay.
