Udaipur is abundant with hotels and resorts and so this place - Shilpi Resort was a welcome surprise to visit and experience!! A very nicely done place - open lawns, plenty of greenery, fruit trees (we could see loads of mangoes on the trees in front of our balcony), swings, pool, etc - gave an impression of a nice open resort place. The rooms are more like blocks of cottages - two/ four rooms in each block - spacious, with open balconies to enjoy the weather and the greenery. The general hygiene levels are good - be it the toilets, the rooms, or in general the maintenance of the property. The staff was nice and courteous - though a bit slow/ lazy i must admit - in tune with the environment i guess (!!) - but overall nice. The food i would say is average - but given the value for money the property this place offers, we didnt mind staying here and enjoying the local cuisines and the rich cuisines elsewhere in Udaipur.
Another interesting thing worth noting about this resort is its location - the first time we were there, it was like - where is this property hidden?? So actually it is certainly a bit off the main road, kind of deserted location - but if you are with a group/ family then you dont really mind it. It is also next to Shilpgram - a very good offbeat handicraft place - we went there with not too much expectations - but to our surprise, the artisans and the work that is done there and the way Shilpgram has been developed is quite a eye-opener in many ways. Was sad to see that such a good developed place doesnt attract crowds in Udaipur - maybe it was the weather/ time of the day that we were at, that it had a deserted look - but it was nice since we got a lot of attention and were treated to some very good live handicraft making display by the artists out there.
Overall - Shilpi Resort - good nice green cozy place, nestled away from the hustle bustle of Udaipur and a steal at the prices they offer. Do go there if you are planning a group visit with multiple rooms - thoroughly enjoyable.
