Raffles Udaipur Opens!
The iconic Raffles Udaipur will officially open on 2nd August 2021.
The Hotel is located on a 21-acre private island in the midst of Udai Sagar Lake. Surrounded by hills and with a view of a 400-year old temple, Raffles Udaipur is an oasis that invites you to unwind and discover the city of Udaipur, anew. On arrival at the Raffles Lakeshore, the legendary Raffles Butler will escort you to a private boat that sails back in time.
The great hall is warm and welcoming with the feel of a grand country estate. The structure is inspired by classical European Palladian architecture, featuring domes, high ceilings and outdoor spaces that are extensive, surprising and lush. The building is guarded by the presence of the fabled guardian Sphinx, a mythical creature with the head of a human, a body of a lion and the wings of a bird. At the same time, subtle influences from Rajput – Mughal architecture can also be seen, with decorative chhatris, stucco work and local Mewari elements.
The hotel features 101 spectacular lake-facing rooms and suites with private pools, all day dining, farm to table restaurant, Long bar, Writers bar, Raffles spa, cooking school and a well-appointed ballroom. The legendary Raffles Butler service, boat only access, and varied flora and fauna add to the timeless luxury of the hotel. This is a journey of discovery, where you can set your own pace.
The hotel is located 20 minutes from the airport, followed by a short boat ride.
