Every street in Udaipur is laden a whiff of royalty, evident not only in its houses, buildings, statues and structures, but also in the hospitality you’ll be met with wherever you go. Take the The LaLiT Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur for instance.
As soon as you place foot in the breathtaking hotel, you’ll experience a strong nostalgic charm muddled with epic tales of Rajasthan’s glorious past.
Overlooking the Fateh Sagar Lake, The LaLiT Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur is set in the midst of the Aravallis and is counted among the best heritage hotels in the country. It was originally built in 1911 by His Highness Maharana Fateh Singh and marks the epitome of Rajasthan’s rich historical and cultural heritage. The LaLiT group has successfully restored the palace with unbelievable meticulousness, retaining its original splendour and magnificence. With attention to the smallest detail, the hotel accommodation seamlessly blends contemporary, modern-day luxuries with age-old hospitality that Rajasthan is best known for.
Every small corner of the property is reminiscent of the late 1950s, when the hotel was the palace home of His Highness Maharana Bhupal Singh. Living up to the erstwhile royal standards and taking it a note above, The LaLiT Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur houses acclaimed restaurants that have managed to create an awe-inspiring mix of traditional and modern cuisines, packaged in glorious flair. Make your way to ‘Aangan’ for the best of Udaipur’s sun, an open kitchen and delicious Indian cuisine. With a wonderful view of Sajjan Garh Fort and Fateh Sagar Lake, you can also enjoy a vibrant Rajasthani folk dance performance. ‘Padmini’ on the other hand, evokes a strong old-world charm true to Rajasthani culture, with its tradition inspired ambience and instrumental folk music playing in the background. The menu is diverse with a host of popular authentic Indian and Rajasthani specialties apart from Continental delicacies.
For a truly rare culinary treat, you can also speak with the hotel to arrange a private, one-of-a-kind dinner hosted in the Maharana Courtyard. We assure you, there are few experiences in life that will match up to dining at the same location where the King himself once presided over court proceedings.
Set atop a hill, the views from the lavish property coupled with the plush interiors make for an unparalleled stay. The expansive grounds and gardens of The LaLiT Laxmi Niwas Palace in Udaipur, offer a myriad of options for you to relax and rejuvenate, escaping from the stress of routine life.
