Known as the city of royal palaces and shimmering lakes, Udaipur, in the heart of Rajasthan, is a fine location for The Oberoi Udaivilas – a traditional Indian palace. Come and walk through the complex courtyards, musical fountains, pools and lush gardens. The architecture was inspired by the old palaces and uses pavilions and domes to create an experience like living in the Taj Mahal itself.
Inside, you will find painted frescoes, intricate mirror work, and beautiful antiques. Your room has a terrace and some have semi-private swimming pools with lake views. The spa overlooks the lake too and features massages and treatments by trained therapists who take inspiration from the ayurvedic tradition. Why not relax on a traditional Shikara boat ride with canapés on the lake? Or take an excursion to local temples and villages? There is also the chance for a private yoga session with a qualified instructor. Whatever you do, here is the opportunity to experience some of the dragon-gold delights of traditional India.
