I’ve never quite seen anything like it (loads more pix here) and trust me you WILL feel quite blue-blooded for the duration of your stay at the Udaivilas in Udaipur. As per their website, “conceived as a traditional Indian palace, The Oberoi Udaivilas  showcases the rich heritage of the Mewar region of Rajasthan with its  rambling courtyards, gentle rippling fountains, reflecting pools and  verdant gardens. Grand architecture inspired by the palaces of Rajasthan  present a picture of majesty resplendent with pavilions and domes that  lead you to a journey of discovery. Interiors embellished with  decorative domes, hand painted frescoes, intricate mirror work and  beautifully crafted artefacts create an ambience of regal splendour. An enchanting boat ride across Lake Pichola transports you to the  ceremonial welcome that awaits you at resort.”

“Rooms with terraces that  open on to semi-private swimming pools present exquisite views and are a  unique feature of Udaivilas. Magnificently decorated suites with  private swimming pools and outdoor dining pavilions are exclusive  retreats. The luxurious spa with its own swimming pool overlooks the lake and  is a haven of serenity. Trained therapists pamper body and soul with  rejuvenating treatments… At The Oberoi Udaivilas, the magnificent setting combines with  royal service to make your holiday a journey into the romance and  grandeur of another century. This resort offers an experience created  exclusively for those who know there is nothing like too much luxury.” All of this is true and then some. They do however need a pool-side bar at the spa pool to speed up their service but that’s about all I can think of to critique!

Seriously if I had pots of money I’d totally fly all my friends down for an epic holiday here (and maybe even get married in Udaipur at the Raj Mandir, *hint hint* Lol.) Thank you Exclusively.in for this unreal experience! xox
Psst! Udaipur has been rated as the best city in the world by Travel + Leisure, USA in the 2009 Readers’ Poll.
