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 of the Rajputana, Udaipur.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
