There are many havelis in Udaipur claiming to have a lake view, but there are very few with a real panoramic view, and Jaiwana is certainly one of them.
The guy in the reception (Harsh his name) gave us a great welcome.
We were amazed at entering the room and seeing the spectacular scene of the lake through its two large windows (we had a Deluxe room on the 3rd floor). The room and bathroom were clean and functional. The corridors and balustrades made of white marble.
The roof restaurant is rated by tripadvisor the number one in Udaipur! And indeed breakfast and food there with a magnificent view were fantastic.
The staff (in particular Harsh) were very professional, competent, and helpful. Harsh's recommendation to visit the Dharohar show at Bagore Ki Haveli was a highlight: A great Rajasthani dance, music and puppets show. It was 31 December and the place was packed with many locals, many kids, and turists. The athmosphere was festive, the eyes -mainly of the kids- glowing. And the show was superb, simply great! It was the most beautifull New Years eve celebration (though it was at 7pm) I've had in many years. After such an infusion of culture and inspiration we skipped alltogether from celebrating new year's eve at a western-style party (there were plenty).
In summary: The visit to Udaipur was the highlight of our India trip. I regret having only planned three nights here -- next time I will stay at least a full week! Jaiwana Haveli contributed a great deal to this experience! Thank you!
