After staying in a villa in Finland I thought I would not get impressed with anything else easily. But I was wrong, I really like The Rajputana at Udaipur.  The first thing that caught my eye was the colors. There is something about Rajasthani colors, as bright as they are, they still don’t hurt the eyes. I mean the dustbin in the room was in shades of orange and green and yet the overall effect was so pleasant and cheerful! I liked my room at the first sight.

The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning good and there were plenty of spaces to sit and lounge around. There was a fruit plate and cookies in the room as well. I cannot live without tea and they had it in the room too.

The hotel is not close to the lakes, it is in a quieter part of the city. For me, it did not make much of a difference. The hotel has its own spaces where you can lounge around. It also offers tented accommodations, which are luxury tents.

All my school and college years I had access to a swimming pool and I always took it for granted. Then I started working and I now have no access to a swimming pool. So now I realize its value. It was a pity that I could not find time to use the pool at The Rajputana, the reflection of the spa in it looked gorgeous.

I had all my meals at the hotel restaurant and I would complement them for their Ker Sangri, the traditional Rajasthani dish, I really liked it. The food in general was good, the broccoli almond soup specially good.

The staff was courteous with me all the times. The only issue they had when I was there was the internet and they were aware of it. The net connection was incredibly slow which is difficult to figure out as the place is in a city. I am sure they must be working at it.

Finally, here is a video of the room, to give you a better idea.

I have been to Udaipur and I think its perhaps one of my favourite cities in India. Almost all places serve mer Sangri, but most of them kind of make it too oily. I hope the food here is better.

I spent about a month in Rajasthan and never was lucky enough to have a pool. Luckily, in Goa my villa has one that my dog and I take full advantage of (to the dismay of the security guards, even though I clean it!) But I really want to take my boyfriend with me back to Raj, especially Udaipur. While I always like traveling very low budget 500 rs a night or so, he’s more into 5 star hotels. I think you’re reviews are in the middle, while some are higher class, perfect for him! Def bookmarking these reviews :)
