The spirit of The Oberoi Udaivilas
Conceived as a traditional Indian palace, capturing all the romance and splendour of the royal era, The Oberoi Udaivilas is situated on the banks of scenic Lake Pichola. Grand architecture inspired by the palaces of Rajasthan showcases the region’s rich heritage and features rambling courtyards, rippling fountains, serene pools, verdant gardens and decorative pavilions and domes. Interiors are embellished with hand-painted frescoes, intricate mirror works and beautifully crafted traditional artefacts. Rooms feature private terraces with exquisite views and boast fine Indian textiles, custom designed handcrafted furniture and luxurious marble bathrooms with deep Victorian tubs.
A haven of serenity, the tranquil spa overlooks the lake and provides a wide selection of treatments, as well as private yoga and meditation sessions. The hotel boasts a fitness centre, putting area, volleyball court, croquet lawns and two heated swimming pools, one at the spa, which offers magnificent lakeside views, and another situated in a lush, green courtyard. Traditional North Indian cuisine is served in the speciality Udaimahal restaurant, while Suryamahal provides light Western, Mediterranean and Thai style dishes in an informal setting. The Chandni dining courtyard adjoins both restaurants and offers open air dining accompanied by performances of traditional music and dance. After-dinner drinks, fine wines and cigars are available in the hotel’s bar.
