Hotel Description

The lakeside city of Udaipur is, by any measure, one of the world’s most remarkable destinations. And when you’re here, there’s little point in staying anywhere but right at the water’s edge. Given the choice between inching one’s way through the clotted streets of the city, or floating up to the hotel’s private docks in a splendid old boat — well, the Indian urban experience must be seen to be believed, but we know which arrival we’d pick. Lucky, then, that at the Leela Palace Kempinski Udaipur, an aquatic arrival is very much a live option.

Here the theme is clearly one of ancient romance, but it’s the fruit of a contemporary vision, interpreted by the likes of the all-star hotel architect Bill Bensley. The result is less a painstakingly authentic, meticulously preserved Rajasthani palace than a Rajasthani palace as it might have looked to contemporary eyes — and thus a palace that is as unabashedly luxurious as any modern five-star hotel.

The best rooms, naturally, look out over Lake Pichola, and there’s no shortage of them. The most basic are already quite luxe indeed, and the best of them are almost beyond description. It’s staffed by a veritable army, and the service is up to the standard set by the building’s physical attributes. And the cuisine is equally over-the-top, from the Dining Room with its pronounced French influence to the lakeside views of the traditionally Indian Sheesh Mahal.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.
