Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur, India

Our rating: Opulent

Previously voted the best hotel in Asia, Oberoi Udaivilas is designed in the style of a traditional Rajasthani Palace, with decorative fountains and pavilions in 30 acres of landscaped gardens. Situated on the far side of the famous Lake Pichola, it has the excellent facilities to be expected of an Oberoi ‘Vilas’ hotel and enjoys fantastic views of the Lake Palace and the city.

There is a luxurious spa to pamper yourself at and private yoga sessions can be arranged, numerous dining options are available and adventurous guests can even take a picnic onto a private gondola. The Suites are lavishly decorated and have private pools, although perhaps the best value rooms are the Premier Lake View Rooms, which offer fantastic views across Lake Pichola and access to a semi private pool from the terrace. Oberoi Udaivilas certainly provides a tranquil haven to relax in and base to explore Udaipur, if you can tear yourself away!
