“Nice laid back luxurious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Nice old Maharajah property, overlooking the lake, rooms with great view(We had a lake view room). Food is good though a tad expensive(5 star expensive). Good activities like the bagpiper bands, dancing horses,Kalbeliya dancers, puppet shows for the tired evenings post a full day of boat rides and palace visits.
They could improve a bit more in the area of hospitality for Kids. They already have a kids play area which if upgraded will be a great addition to the property and will give parents some more lounge time by the lake.
Overall a good royal feel , nice staff, good food, laid back feeling royal building converted to a hotel. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Lake facing rooms have a stupendous view

Stayed here for 2 nights in a deluxe lake view room. Great location and room, very comfortable and great staff on the whole. The food is expensive and not great and the drinks even more expensive rather like their sister hotel in Delhi. The lack of a pool area or place to rest/sunbathe after day sightseeing was very disappointing. You could not really relax on the front lawn outside the entrance so people tended to go to their rooms. The area down the steps at the front of hone hotel ought to be utilized for people to relax and sun loungers should be provided.

This place really has the royal factor in it. From the overwhelming welcome to the service provided till the end of your stay is just more than satisfying. The hotel itself has a great ambiance. The rooms and it's bathrooms are loaded with leisure. The food is just finger licking good.

The best part is it's location which is just touching fatehsagar lake. Unfortunately we didn't had balcony rooms but still the hotel's lush green garden managed us the beautiful panaromic view of fatehsagar lake. The environment is quite peaceful.

All in all it's a place which would lure you to have a stay again and again.

I recently had a stay at Laxmi Vilas from 23rd Oct to 26th oct. Was extremely satisfied. The best part is that the hotel staff is very courteous. They called up to request for a feed-back and if you want extra water/toileteiries/towels etc. they provide the service with a smile and instantly.

The break-fast is excellent. I was so happy with the number of choices, which made a good start to the day.

Room Tip: request for rooms at the top level. It gives a fantastic view of the lake. Lake View rooms

We recently spent 2 nights from 9th Nov to 11th Nov 2013. We got upgraded from Normal room to Suite which is wonderful gesture from Lalit which is really beautiful and large room. We had our marriage anniversary on 10th Nov which they made special. View from hotel was splendid and front is Fateh Sagar Lake. In morning bright sunshine is really pleasing to the eyes and in the evening an night cold waves with hot coffee just made our day. Hotel frontdesk staff is very helpful and sophisticated. Restruants were clean and food was very tasty and large variety of foods to choose. All the restruants staff was helpful, well trained and very soft spoken. All i have to say that it was really wonderful experience and great trip. From now nothuing less than Lalit. Hats off to Lalit.

Thanks

The View from the hotel is excellent. Overall the hotel experience was good.
But i would not suggest anyone to take the Spa treatment there. This was one of the worst experience I had ever got. Shabby & Dingy Spa Rooms, The Towels & Bathrobes were stinky, extremely small rooms. no proper bathing or shower area, No steam Sauna, the masseuse was absolutely amateurs who was chewing pan while giving a massage, without uniform (Not that it makes a difference to me, but doesnt an ambiance mean something at a spa, specially when your paying that kind of amount) the masseuse had no idea about any technique or strokes. It seemed the hotel had just called him from the road side and made him do the treatment for me. He had absolutely no idea what a Deep Tissue or Swedish Massage was, and it seemed they both looked the same to me and would have given me a "desi" massage anyways.
It just wasnt upto Lalit Standards or as a matter of fact upto the standards of any 5 Star Hotel. The worst was, they charged me as per the standards of a 5 Star, but trust me on this, the standards were less than a 1 star. Upon confronting the staff, they just refused to give any discount.
I would suggest the hotel not to offer such a treatment room to their guests till a complete renovation is done.

Room Tip: Try Taking room towards the Fateh Sagar Lake

Dear Mr. Agarwal,

Namaskar!

Thank You for your review. On behalf of the entire team at The Lalit Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur, I would like to thank you for choosing to stay with us and your valuable feedback. Your feedback about the spa has been duly noted and discussed with appropriate people for immediate corrective action. We had outsourced our spa treatments to a third party and with immediate effect we have stopped using them.

Much as we strive to deliver an exceptional quality of service to all our guests, we regret that we have not been able to measure up to your expectations this time. I would like to assure you that this is a one off incidence and may i urge you to not let this be an indelible perception.

We remain firmly committed to the ethos and values of hospitality and customer centricity and in accordance, look forward to regaining faith and confidence in the brand and i hope will grant us an opportunity to serve you with renewed focus and enthusiasm.

Look forward to meet you during your next trip.

Warm Regards

Bhaskaran. T

The Lalit is understated and elegant. The front desk staff are effective and wonderfully charming. Our room had a superb view of Lake Fateh Sagar and I would highly recommend requesting for a room with a view. Every evening there is a puppet show on the front lawn. We saw several puppet shows during our trip but I must say the Lalit puppeteer was by far the most skilled. We had dinner at the hotel and it was an excellent meal, flavorful yet sublime. The one small blip was service at breakfast. I think the Lalit is a great hotel and I would stay there again but only piece of advice would be - just keep asking for your coffee, it will come.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view
