Bored of Delhi-Mumbai lifestyle and hustle-bustle then plan a luxury getaway to Udaipur! The small yet beautiful city has a very cosy and warm feeling in the air itself. As far as you can see there would be lakes and lush greenery in abundance. On one hand, you’ll see the colourful markets showcasing the royal culture of Rajasthan while on other you’ll see the endearing cafes giving the feel of Italy.

In Udaipur, one of the best luxury places for a relaxing escape is The Oberoi Udaivilas. Just 2hours flight away from Mumbai & Delhi, this is the perfect spot to take in the incredible Venice of the East. Since the city is small in size so it can be explored peacefully on a 2-3 days trip.

Get Ready for the royal reception with a shower of rose petals and warm treatment by courteous staff.

Famous for its heritage and culture, the city of lakes is a couple of hours journey from Delhi & Mumbai. The flight will take around 1hr 15 mins to reach Udaipur Airport. The hotel concierge will confirm your arrival time before-hand so that you don’t need to wait at the Airport. After a comfortable ride of 45 mins in the hotel cab, you’ll be dropped off at the jetty for a small boat ride to the hotel for check-in.

The Hotel

Arriving at the Udaivilas in Udaipur feels like visiting a palace. The picturesque view, royal treatment and the warm hospitality make it different from the rest.

Showering the rose petal on guests when they enter the property is perhaps the best way anyone could imagine for the welcome.

With their unique style of ‘Mehmaan Nawazi’, Udaivilas will never make you feel less than a ‘Maharaja’. Needless to say, this luxury hotel captures all the romance and splendour of a royal era. This palatial property, spread over 50 acres, has just 87 rooms and a twenty-acre wildlife sanctuary, with spectacular views across the hotel’s gardens and Lake Pichola. It is inspired by the architecture and the heritage of the kingdom of Mewar.

The Room

Isn’t it everybody’s wish to silently gaze the sunset from the balcony while peacocks playing in your courtyard? Well, if you want to make this real then just take out some time to sit beside the beautifully decorated window of your room and gaze the view.

As we entered the room, we saw a yummy chocolate truffle cake on the table for our welcome. Room was stylish and exclusive, with private walled courtyards, Victorian bathtubs, Rajasthani decor giving a royal touch.

The Food

What’s better than the soul-satisfying food after a hectic day visit to Udaipur market? Udaivillas has a variety of luxury dining experiences matching your different moods. 

The hungry mood

If you are in a mood to have an authentic Rajasthani food then Udaimahal is the place for you. 

Under the sky

If you are looking for a dining under the sky with traditional music and dance performances then Chandni is what you are looking for.

Private Dinner Under the Lakeside Dome (Our Favorite)

An exquisite, poolside dining experience if you want to add an unforgettable experience in your romantic moments. Gazing the uninterrupted lake views in the dim light while listening to soft music and having a glass of wine with your partner should be in your Wishlist. 

The Activities

You name it and they have it. Spa, practice yoga, learn a Rajasthani folk dance or attend a cooking lesson with the in-house chef. Our best experience was Spa & Skikara (wooden boat) ride with wine and canapé. If you fancy a Maharaja ride on camel and elephant they can very well arrange it.

Gift yourself this weekend getaway. Special thanks to Oberoi Udaivilas for hosting TravelerJodi.
