As me and my wife share the same birthday we were here specially to celebrate our B'day and were pampered to our expectations. The staff is trained to make you feel like you are on Cloud 9 . We had booked ourselves the Premier Rooms with the semi-pvt pools which were ideally located. The property is spread over 40 acres so it gives you a very calm and quite atmosphere. It is far away from the hustle and bustle of the main city. I must say the spa experience at the Oberoi Udaivilas was one of the best I have had. Their meals are very elaborative and the chef is ready to catered to all your needs. Over all it was a very blissful experience.

This hotel property is just lovely and worth every penny. The staffing is impecable. Don't miss the wildlife feedings at night (the morning is not worth the trouble). You will meet a gentleman who has been at the historic royal hunting lodge on property for the last 40 decades. They arranged a camel ride for the children at a moment's notice.

If this isn't the world's best, it has got to be the first runner-up. It is gorgeous, fabulous service, fantastic food, and the views are incredible. We stayed at their best, the Koohinor Suite, and you can get lost with the number of rooms. A private butler was available 24 hours, and breakfast at 6am or dinner at 10pm was never an issue. Indoor or outdoor dining overlooking the city palaces across the lake, with a full moon, can't get more romantic. With a private swimming pool, steam room, dome rooms with water fountains, beautifully decorated living and bed rooms, and the boat ride to the hotel has to make this one of the world's best places to stay.

Lets get the one downside out of the way. Its not the "real Lake Palace hotel". If you want the real thing, the real palace where the Kings once lived, and where Octopssy was shot, you'll have to go to the Taj Lake Palace Hotel.

That said, the Udai Villas, has done an outstanding job of cloning a historic palace. It looks genuine, and is much more comfortable, and beautiful than the real thing.

The food, spa, and service is where the Udai Villas really takes the cake away from any other hotel in Udaipur. Simply outstanding.

We took one boat ride for a dinner at the Taj Lake Palace, a half day at the city palace, and another boat ride for lunch at JagMandir. Both trips were well worth it, but the rest of our 4 days in Udaipur were spend enjoying the outstanding property that is Udai Villas.

Great short getaway from Delhi !

Room Tip: Do a dinner at the taj lake palace hotel and a lunch at Jagmandir. Plan these early, the Taj is very snobby about letting visitors not living in the hotel enter for meals.

We went there with our entire family to celebrate my father in law's birthday. We had a wonderful time there and it was the best place chosen for the occassion. We were 9 of us including 2 two year olds. We requested food to be made seperately for the kids and they did a good job at it. Just like home made food.
We stayed at the premier lake view rooms which had semi private pool. All three rooms were next to each other and the kids really enjoyed the pool. The view from the rooms of the city palace was beautiful.
The rooms are very simple though and we had expected something more palatial and spacious. I guess oberoi as a group needs to work on having more spacious rooms. This was the third property we have stayed at and have a similar opinion for all of them
Special mention for the chefs. Such humble and simple people and gave in to all our requests. There was always some complimentary food from them and we always landed up with more than we could eat. The cake made for the occassion was super delicous.
A couple of problems we had with the room service and a wedding happening at the hotel riverfront which disturbed the peace on the last night of our stay but was well taken care of by the hotel management
Overall an excellent stay. Will definately recommend to anyone going to udaipur. By far the best property there.
