Feel like a princess in Udaipur!

Udaipur! The city of lakes in the beautiful state of Rajasthan.A very popular destination, it is really worth going. Incredible views, majestic heritage hotels, palaces; it has been my favorite trip. You have the beautiful hotels, the serpentine lanes of the old buzzing town, great shopping known for their precious stones, and incredible handcraft, and amazing food!

·      Among the many hotels, the Taj Lake palace is unique for its ubication and history. It was built by Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1763.  It is in the middle of the Lake Pichola and you arrive there by boat. The white marble façade, the opulent interiors and the royal service takes you back to the golden era. You have a boat service to go to town and back, a spa and various activities to keep you busy. The perfect romantic getaway in a real life palace.

Octopussy was filmed in this hotel. Of course pop corn and movie night is a must! 

·     The Oberoi Udaivilas is a new palace and  was built by the Oberoi Group and is their most precious jewel. It was rated as the world’s best hotel in 2015 by Travel + LeisureThe hotel was constructed on the hunting grounds of the Maharana of Mewar, which was around 200 years old. Around 40 percent of the total hotel area are designated to  wildlife sanctuary; you can find peacocks roaming in the garden . Striking interiors with a royal handcrafted furniture, the exteriors are incredibly beautiful, the service and the facilities of this hotel with 87 rooms & suites, 2 restaurants 2 pools and a spa will make you forget the rest of the world.

For me both these hotels have a different essence, I wouldn’t know how to choose; however the Oberoi Udai Vilas has a more modern & chic touch that I really enjoyed.
