The Oberoi Udaivilas stands on the banks of Lake Pichola facing Udaipur, with views across the water to the 17th Century palaces of Jagmandir and Jagniwas. Udaivilas took ten years to build.
A resort hotel set among thirty acres of former hunting grounds, Udaivilas is a version of an original Rajasthani Mewari moated palace. It includes open-air colonnades flanked by 450 hand-carved stone columns, domes covered in gold leaf, hand-painted murals, arches and fountains, landscaped terraces and a decorative pool of marble lotus flowers.
