The Udaivilas in Udaipur, India; is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever experienced. Rated as the top resort in Asia and the 5th best in the world, the seamlessly gracious service and beautiful environs truly justify these accolades.
In a city that is steeped in Indian history and surrounded by the most beautiful ancient palaces, temples and forts, Udaivilas offers the perfect sanctuary of luxury. It’s stunning setting overlooks the gorgeous blue of Lake Pichola and soothing green of the Aravalli hills. The hotel itself is styled mimicking a traditional Mewari Palace. It houses a wildlife conservatory with rolling landscaped gardens that lead to reflecting pools, open courtyards and many quiet thoughtful spaces of beauty.
