A room where a steaming tandoori chicken is served between golden paintings and carpets that, at some point, could fly. The artisan cocktail that a turban barman serves on the other side of an exotic bar. The views of the most beautiful lake in India on a lantern terrace rocked by the sound of water and the scents of incense. A suite just worthy of princesses and maharajas.

We could be talking about one of those mythical palaces of the Rajasthan state of India. Of those that appear in the stories of The Thousand and One Nights. Or even the best hotel in the world . And we do not say it, but Travel + Leisure, one of the most prestigious travel publications that has recently published its list of the 100 best hotels in the world , The Leela Palace Udaipur being the first of all.

Located in the famous city of Udaipur, also known as “The Venice of India” due to its lakes and palaces, The Leela Palace Udaipur finds, among its many attributes, a privileged location on the shores of Lake Pichola , one of the most romantic places from Asia .

Made up of 72 rooms overlooking the lake, in addition to 8 suites that include butler service , The Leela Palace Udaipur has restaurants as fascinating as Sheesh Mahal, specializing in Indian food, or the Library Bar , where cocktails are served among a decoration still trapped in the lavish Indian colonial period. In addition, there is also a spa worthy of royalty where you can splash around surrounded by candles and the best views of the historical heritage of Udaipur is possible.

All this, wrapped in exquisite decoration, typical dance numbers that entertain five-fork dinners or unsurpassed service. Factors that, added to many others, make The Leela Palace Udaipur the best accommodation when it comes to getting to know the city of Udaipur .
