Breathtakingly perfect !

We were at Udaivilas for 2 nights recently with the family. The entire premises are absolutely perfect - worthy of a Oberoi Tag. The lawns are incredible and the rooms are simply breathtaking. It would be hard to imagine a more classy place than this. The service is immaculate in all respects. The facilities are also amazing - including the Gym. They do talk about a reserve and feeding times to Animals twice a day etc. My kids were anticipating something fairly good - That was a bit of a let down - at the appointed time, they left us in a area where there were a couple of peacocks. What was a bit bewildering was the restaurants & food - they only have 2 restaurants adjacent to each other with fairly similar decors & what seems like a common kitchen. There is NO outdoor seating (which seems really strange considering that they are on Lake Pichola). There is no provision of any sort to serve tea etc outside as well. The breakfast buffet spread was not deserving of a Oberoi Hotel either with trademark touches in other Oberoi hotels completely missing. The family & I fled out of the hotel a couple of times to eat in the other brilliant places outside (one is right outside the Hotel called Kebabri). Incidentally, the hotel lacks a 24 hr Cafe which struck me a bit strange - we had stepped down at 1830 and the only place to sit along with the kids was the bar. All in all - awesome service, picture perfect setup - lot of work required on the restaurants and the food - the hotel will do well to introduce outdoor seating and more innovation on the menus.Read More
