“Perfection with Many Flaws”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

First thing which hits you on your way sailing through the lake to the island resort is admiration for man's work. Wonderful artificial lake with a beautiful resort in midst of it. This resort provides you all the solace you need with your loved one and with minimal disturbances from mobile and internet it turned out to be peaceful experience. Let me list the Pros and cons:

Pros:
Holiday gateway
Serine
No disturbance
Good facilities
Beautiful locale

Cons:
Rooms seem old
Reaching the destination unless car is available
Food is expensive
Payment accepted only in cash or credit card. Debit cards not allowed or no atm close by.

Though there are cons I would highly recommend it for people who near break from the routine and forget the past

Room Tip: Room on the top floor gives you a good view and is close to terrace which is awesome.

Thank you for your reviews. I would like to answer each of the Cons that you have mentioned and explain the same. We have only 3 old rooms left in the resort, all others are renovated or new. As, Jaisamand is out of the city, Cars/Public Buses or taxis are the only way to reach here, if need be, we can organize a pick up from Udaipur. The food is mainly on buffet system, as its a part of the package. The Al Carte food priced a bit more than a city hotel, as our cost of transportation from Udaipur and then by boat to Jaisamand works out to be a bit costly. Most hotels don't accept debit cards, as refunds or cancellations in any case takes minimum 60 days by banks. We hope to see you again. Regards

We were on a road trip around Rajasthan and Udaipur was our last stop. Definitely we wanted to end our trip with a fantastic experience and hence, chose to stay at Jaisamand Island Resort. It was a sheer horrific experience once we reached there. It's far away from Udaipur city, in the middle of no where. Their staff was highly unprofessional, unfriendly and treated us like we were their slaves, we had to listen to whatever they would provide us with. They refused to take in-room dinning orders, you HAVE to eat whatever is served in the buffet. There is no one to attend your calls in the reception. The rooms, though recently renovated, was horribly designed. On the whole, it was a pathetic experience. We left the hotel the very next morning and drove our way back to Jaipur.
Please don't trust the pics that are put up on most of the sites, the property is old, dilapidated and stale!

Dear Mrs. Jain, I don't want to comment on the review written by you. You also spoke to our owner from the hotel reception for a free upgrade to the villa suite, which was not possible at that time. Our chefs are more than happy to prepare anything that you want besides the buffet, and we told you that nothing extra would be charged. We have got great reviews about our new rooms and villas. You are the first, who has mentioned about their "horrible" design. Our USP is being away from the city and that is what the guest who come stay with us like the most. Unprofessional staff is a very strong word to use, we promote uplift-meant of the people from village in the surrounding area, but most of them are back of the house staff or garden cleaners. Regards.

first you need to take boat in jaisamand lake to reach resort.
Rooms are comes with all meal plans as their is no hotels around in same island.
nicely decorated good big rooms.
we have been upgraded to suites as they were low on occupancy.
they treat you royally as you eneter the resort.
they spoiled you with nice tasty food from breakfast to dinner.
Do not forget to do fishing in the lake.

Jaisamand Island Resort, located in the middle of Dhebar lake (better known as Jaisamand Lake) is an extremely beautiful property. Absolutely serene and cut-off from rest of the world, its location is its biggest advantage. The experience was excellent - right from the fast cruising motor boats (taking us to the resort from the parking at the dam) to the breathtaking view the resort offered. A nice combination of culture, remnants of our glorious past, wonderful ambience and warm hospitality, Jaisamand Resort is a perfect getaway to recharge your batteries and relax in the pristine company of nature. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Villas are exceptional; Suite rooms could do with some upgrading
