The Oberoi Udaivilas
Ranked #3 of 167 Hotels in Udaipur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 May 2012

The Oberoi Udaivllas is over the top, fantastic place, great rooms, best room service ever, very good food at restaurants, the best hotel I have stayed in India. Very nice swimming pools, with a great service by the staff at the swimming pools. The only big problem of the Hotel is that India has a very warm weather, very hot, and they have an outside beatiful restaurant, but you can not go to the restaurant unlees you are wearing long trousers, can not go in your bermudas even with a 40 degrees temperature, remembering is a outside restaurant with a lake view...my opinion they should change their policy on that. The best staff I have ever witness in a Hotel, they do try to help you when you ask as much as they can, the only thing they did not help was with the restaurant, I was prohibited to go because wearing bermudas, and some 5 minutes after they called room telling for me to go back, they had a special table for me and my wife, and I said That was not the way to solve the problem, and I did not go to the restaurant and I contact the manager suggeting him to change policy, it does not metter how great, how expensive you are, you still have all kinds of guest, and has to be prepared for all situations before it occurs, not after. Still is a great hotel with a great staff.

Room Tip: If you like swimming pool, stay near it, otherwise any place is great.

Of the three Oberoi properties we stayed in India (the other two being the Amarvilas & Wildflower Shimla), this is definitely in the lead by a wide margin. The location, architecture, ambiance, and service simply came together to give us a very magical experience. On arrival at the airport, we were picked up by the property's BMW 7-series, making for a very pleasant, luxurious 45-minute drive through Udaipur before arriving at the resort. Udaipur is a very charming place, less hectic than the bigger Indian destinations and definitely much tidier. If there's one place in India I'd like to revisit, it would be Udaipur.

The staff are very personable. Go for the room with semi-private pool. Request for the room directly facing the Lake Palace hotel if available. The best view of the lake would have to be at the spa pool. The wildlife sanctuary at the back part of the resort was a pleasant surprise.

As with the other Oberoi properties, the food was a little letdown. It's not bad, just completely ordinary especially for the high prices. Try the roofdeck restaurant at the hotel just outside of the Udaivilas gate. Nice views too and much more reasonable price.

Room Tip: Request for semi-private pool room directly facing Lake Palace. Try roof-deck restaurant outside of...

I have been visiting Udaivilas every year atleast once if not twice since 2006. you cannot compare Udaivilas with any other hotels, it is simply the Best! the rooms are spacious and elegant, the service is second to none, the staff always smiling and willing to help, the food is excellent and very fresh and Chef's are more then willing to make anything outside the menu, and for me the best part of the hotel is the SPA, the therapist are well trained and very professional.

Room Tip: Rooms with private pool!
