Oberoi Udaivilas – Udaipur, India
Check in – One of the things about the beautiful Oberoi hotels, their lobbies are always stunning. You feel like you’re walking into a palace and our arrival at the Udaivilas was no different. We were driven to the hotel by boat as a special welcome, arrived on the grounds by having rose petals thrown over our heads that seemingly floated from the sky above us, and then being shown through the lobby and grounds to our room, a special surprise from the general manager which he was so excited to show us our private pool and lake view, which truly was spectacular. I’m not sure if it was just us (through our family connections) or if it’s standard at the hotels, but we didn’t have to check in at the front desks at all, they did everything in our rooms, which is so nice when you’re tired and just want to get to your room.
Room – The rooms here are just lovely. Large four poster beds, window nooks that look out over the patio, large Persian rugs thrown over the gorgeous tile floors. The patio had 2 lounge chairs and a gorgeous umbrella with Indian design. We spent most of our time either on the patio taking in the gorgeous views and watching the peacocks frolic in the wildlife sanctuary behind our room or in the window nook (when it got too hot out) overlooking the surreal scene from inside our room.
Dining – Since we spent a few days here, we ate at the restaurant many times for breakfast, lunch and dinners, as well as ordering room service a few times. The food here was beyond incredible. From the huge breakfast buffet every morning, to the patio tables with curtains blowing in the cool breeze for lunch, overlooking Lake Pichola (we usually had the patio to ourselves for most of our lunches which made it even more magical as there weren’t that many people around.) We spent a couple meals having food in our room, enjoying both Indian and other types of food and everything was amazing.
