It was individual and authentic. And I was treated like a family friend, not a paying guest.

The Oberoi Udaivilas

Why We Love This Hotel :

History: Built to emulate a traditional Indian palace, the Oberoi Udaivilas has been ranked by Travel and Leisure’s reader’s poll as the 4th best hotel in the world.

Service: The ultimate in service: a 24-hour personal butler is a standard luxury at the Oberoi Udaivilas.

Location: In the heart of Rajasthan, a city renowned for its majestic palaces and beautiful lakes, the Oberoi Udaivilas’ location on the brink of stunning Lake Pichola elegantly captures the best of the city.


Recreational and relaxational activities, from holistic spa treatments, to pumping iron, to swimming lengths, can all be enjoyed at the hotel’s luxurious facilities. Guests can always enjoy a stunning view of Lake Pichola and the City Palace for inspiration during their activities.

Fitness Center

The Oberoi’s state-of-the-art gym sits alongside two main swimming pools, that are heated in winter for guests’ optimal comfort. Yoga sessions are also available, as well as meditation and Pranayama sessions with the resident Yoga teacher.


Two main swimming pools are available for guests to swim in: the luxurious spa swimming pool and the larger, main pool. 


With its own swimming pool overlooking the lake, the spa offers fusion treatments that combine traditional Ayurvedic techniques with internationally-acclaimed practices, to create a holistic, cleansing, and relaxing spa experience.


At the Oberoi Udaivilas, guests will enjoy the finest of both Indian and international cuisine. All dishes are prepared by chefs who have been meticulously trained by the few royal chefs that remain in Rajasthan.


Dine alfresco in the hotel’s fresh air courtyard, complete with traditional music and dance performances as the moon rises in the sky.


Enjoy all day dining in this casual 30s-style restaurant, which serves up light Western, Mediterranean, and Thai dishes.


A restaurant that fuses traditional Rajasthani and North Indian fare with a blend of traditional and modern Indian decor. The dishes here are rich, delicious, and authentic.
