Amazing Property with impeccable cleanliness.

Posted 17 Jan

The Leela is beautifully designed, very elegant and luxurious with amazing views of Lake Pichola, the City Palace and the Lake Palace. The food is awesome and the service staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We were traveling with kids and found the staff to be very patient and friendly in helping with kiddy demands.

One of the best hotel in India

Posted 16 Aug, 2017

My wife and I stayed at the Leela, Udaipur during a long weekend in August. I have to start this review by saying that I was really looking forward to staying at one of the best hotels in India, and I was definitely not disappointed. During our stay we took the speed boat across the lake several times and it was amazing. The luxurious look of the lobby was incredible! I loved it when as you enter, they have someone signing folk songs at the entrance. The restaurants at the hotel were incredible! The views from the hotel were just incredible. The view from Amrud Mahal especially was just awesome. The rooms were fantastic – really modern and yet have a traditional touch. The staff was just so courteous. Loved our stay very much and would happily come back again soon!

Beautiful property

Posted 17 Apr, 2017

We stayed at the Leela Palace Udaipur in 2016. The property is beautiful and we had a pretty boat ride to the hotel. We were showered with rose petals and greeted with traditional Indian music upon arrival. The rooms are lavish with state of art amenities and furnishings. The staff was very polite and courteous throughout our stay. The property is centrally located o all Udaipur destinations like the Udaipur Palace, Jagmandir, Taj Lake Palace and the Oberoi Udaivillas.

Heart of Desert

Posted 30 Jan, 2017

Leela palace is one of the beautiful monument of India which converted some parts as hotel for maintenance of palace as well giving best service in terms of delicious foods and courtesy of Rajasthan. It's a dream for every one to be part of this great monument of our country . It's a cheap for foreigners but difficult for Indians. It's food & beverages are mainly suitable for continental but difficult for vegetarians. But management is least concerned because they have made their immag internationally. Living in this palace is dream of every one. My daughter was so affectainate that she immediately planned for future to come this place again and again. Beautiful place in night for sitting with warm dinner at the corner of lake give u impetuous impression

Luxury at its Best !

Posted 26 Oct, 2015

Leela Palace Hotel is one exceptional luxury hotel in India. Even though it becomes very difficult for the staff to take care of every customer especially at the start of the tourist season, the staff took our additional care. We were lucky enough to get a classy room facing the Pichola lake. Staff are very courteous and the in-house dining is awesome. Go for Mughlai and Chinese food. The major entertainment for us was the live music and Rajasthani dance. You can also access the hotel through boating in lake Pichola. It's mind-blowing. Tip: Ask for room with balcony and lake view

Value for money with nice services

Posted 15 Apr, 2015

It was easy to locate the hotel and the destination was good. The stay in the hotel was good and the staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful. There was no delay in check-in and checkout. The interior and exterior of the hotel was good. I ate veg food in the hotel and it was good in quality and in taste, and the price was reasonable. There were no activities, which were happening in the hotel. The room allotted to me was nice with all required amenities in working condition but there were no view. Overall, it was value for money and I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Luxurious stay & delicious food

Posted 23 Dec, 2016

Me & my wife celebrated our birthdays at Leela Palace Udaipur, we had a memorable weekend. The ultra-luxury hotel lives up to its name by pampering you in every sense. Approach is from the jetty where a boat from the hotel picks you up. At the entry, traditional Rajasthani songs are played to welcome guests. Our personal concierge, Kampala was kind enough to show us to our room and help us with all our requirements. Our birthdays were celebrated on a personal cruise on which they had organised the cake cutting ceremony. The pool at Leela is majestic, the decor and the ambience makes you spend more and more time at that place. Food was delicious - breakfast spread was quite elaborate. The only drawback was that we had to wait 15 mins to be seated during breakfast. Overall, we had a luxurious stay at Leela and I would recommend this place to everyone travelling to Udaipur. Room Tip: Lake facing.

Posted 30 Oct, 2015

In hotel Leela, there is different types of room. There is 80 beautiful guested room that I had not ever seen in my life. This room is like a hall where 100 people celebrate party at one time, there is separate swimming pool in this room, spa facility, drink facility and so much. The sightseeing of this hotel is so good, because this hotel is situated nearby lake Pichola which is one of the best lake of Udaipur. My experience in this hotel is so good.
