The Oberoi Udaivilas was ranked as the Best Hotel in the World by the Travel+Leisure World’s Best Awards 2015. In the same year, it was also recognised as the Favourite Luxury Hotel in India by Outlook Traveller, one of the Best Hotels in the World by Condé Nast Traveller, and the Top Resort in Asia by Travel+Leisure.
The Oberoi Udavilas is nestled on the banks of Lake Pichola in Udaipur, southern Rajasthan. Lake Pichola is the heart and soul of Udaipur and was man-made in 1362 to provide water for the local people. There are four islands located within Lake Pichola, one of which featured in the James Bond film ‘Octopussy’. The islands are scattered with water palaces, which appear to be floating on the glistening lake.
Udaipur is the ultimate testament to Rajasthan’s royal heritage. No tour of north India is complete without soaking up the rich culture and history of Udaipur, which is affectionately referred to as the most romantic city in Rajasthan and is drenched in the passion of the oldest living dynasty in the world.
The opulent experience begins with an enchanting boat ride from the banks of Lake Pichola to The Oberoi Udaivilas, where a brief ceremonial welcome awaits you. Rooms at The Oberoi Udaivilas are delicate and superbly decorated in royal Rajasthani flair – some with a semi-private swimming pool attached, and a terrace overlooking breathtaking views.
The Udavilas’ luxurious spa is a haven of tranquillity, complete with trained therapists to pamper the body and soul with invigorating treatments. The Oberoi Udaivilas also offer private yoga, meditation and pranayama (deep-breathing exercises) with their resident yoga guru.
Rooms and suites at The Oberoi Udavilas are divided into five categories; the Premier Room, Premier Room with Pool View, Premier Room with Semi-Private Pool, Luxury Suite with Private Pool and finally the Kohinoor Suite.
Premier Rooms are at the entry-level. They’re richly appointed with private walled courtyards and silk parasols. Fine Indian textiles and custom-designed furniture complete the room. Each Premier Room has a luxurious white marble bathroom and a freestanding victorian bath.
