Spread over 50 acres on the banks of shimmering Lake Pichola, The Oberoi Udaivilas is a striking Udaipur landmark that offers a level of luxury that few other five-star hotels can come close to. This magnificent complex of elegant Moorish-style domes and cupolas encompasses the 200 year old hunting grounds of the Maharana of Mewar, which today is a verdant sanctuary for deer and wild boar. Outside its walls lie the most famous sites of Udaipur in close proximity, from the impressive City Palace to the pleasure gardens at Sahelion-ki-Bari.
The 87 beautifully appointed rooms and suites at The Oberoi Udaivilas feature handsome hand-carved beds, traditional Rajasthani fabrics in rich, vibrant hues and bright, airy bathrooms of gleaming white marble. Some feature private courtyards and easy access to a long, shared swimming pool, whilst others have their very own infinity pools. All boast dedicated butler service and glorious views over the lake.
At The Oberoi Udaivilas, dining is an experience; consider a relaxed lunch or classic afternoon tea with finger sandwiches and scones served whilst on a leisurely boat cruise. You could even learn to prepare Rajasthani cuisine or take a temple tour with a gourmet picnic en route. Highly recommended activities from this hotel include an interactive visit to the Mewar School of Art and a heritage walk through Udaipur’s old city followed by a candlelit dinner beside the lake.
