A 45-minute drive from Maharana Pratap Airport lies the Leela Palace Udaipur, a five-star property on the banks of Lake Pichola. Sporting sweeping views of the City Palace and the majestic Aravalli Mountains, the Leela Palace Udaipur features seventy-two rooms and suites divided into six categories, all decorated in sepia tones with local textiles and artwork. The in-house restaurant, the Dining Room, offers a cornucopia of cuisines throughout the day; the Sheesh Mahal, a rooftop restaurant on the lakeside that offers fine dining under the stars, and serves cuisine from the royal kitchens of India; and the Library Bar, an intimate lounge that fuses English club decor with Indian aesthetic principles. Food can also be served by the mosaic-tiled pool overlooking Lake Pichola, or in guests’ rooms. Other amenities include a spa by ESPA, yoga lessons, badminton, boat rides, cooking classes with one of the property’s chefs and much more.
