We have stayed at many luxury hotels around the world, but UDAIVILAS beats them all! Once you have stayed here you will understand the definition of perfection.
We stayed at Udaivisas for almost two weeks with friends and family and we could have stayed even longer.
Once you step out of the Udaipur airport terminal you are taken in hand by the smiling, gracious, elegantly dressed staff. You immediately realize that you are on vacation. After a 40 minute ride you arrive at the jetty for the boat ride across the lake. You are greeted by name by everyone, even the security guard! The 7 minute boat ride is a great way to start the Oberoi experience. The welcome at the property is just as impressive. Rashmi and her team are there to meet you and the doorman Durga welcomes you home! By the time you arrive in your room you have probably been greeted by name by at least 20 employees! Check in is swiftly done in the room.
The property is magical. The grounds are immaculatey groomed with peakocks roaming around freely. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and perfectly maintained. Some rooms open onto the gardens while others have their own terraces with direct access to a semi-private pool along with views of the lake and the city.
off to the spa pool... you are once again greeted by name by Vivek who sets you up with Oberoi sun cream, rose water spay, chilled water, cold towels and the famous frozen grapes to cool you down from the summer heat. Discreet, but extremely attentive, the pool service is just perfect. Off to dinner at the outdoor terrace with live local music and colorful dancers. The restaurants are perfectly run under the attentive management of Natasha and Roshni who are always around to make sure that the guests wishes are being taken care of. The menu is a mix of continental and indian cuisine. Everything is just great. The kitchen team, led by the Chef Deep, can prepare anything you can imagine. The pasta is homemade, the croissants and bread are made fresh daily and the ice-cream too! Everything coming out of the kitchen was just great. Not one single disappointment in almost two weeks. Organize a private dinner on the floating pontoon in the middle of the lake and you will just be blown away by the experience. Its an absolute must. And to top off the total experience and make you really feel at home, you don't sign any checks during the entire stay! Everything is posted directly to your room. And even better, there are no mistakes nor surprises when you check out. Direct tipping is also discouraged. You can leave an envelope when you leave and its equally shared but the entire staff. Oberoi has done an amazing job here and we will definately be going back on a regular basis. Bravo to the Udaivilas staff. You can all be proud.
