The Oberoi Udaivilas Review
On Lake Pichola, with sublime views of the Lake Palace, City Palace Complex, and ghats, this is one of India's most luxurious (and expensive) hotels—a contemporary palace in its own right. For the ultimate experience, take a suite with butler service and a semiprivate infinity pool, and watch deer approach the edge of the hotel's private wildlife reserve. Traditionally dressed staff reflect old-world courtesy and display acute attention to detail, and the restaurants serve delicious continental and Indian food.
Rekindle a Romance
From its soaring lakeside turrets to the nineteenth-century hunting lodge within its grounds, Udaivilas is a royal, Mewar-style retreat. But despite the grandeur of its fountains, sweeping views of the surrounding olive Aravalli hills, and unforgettable stretch of pool, this modern-day palace manages to create plenty of intimate space for romance as well. Sunset shikara rides in Lake Pichola, meandering walkways and waterways, hand crafted embellishments, and semi-private swimming areas (in some rooms) may convince you that you're in a Rajasthani miniature painting. A private moonlit dinner on the hotel's "floating pavilion", catered by one of three excellent restaurants, completes the illusion.
