“Umaid Lake Palace..What can we say! A regal palatial estate tucked far away in the countryside close to the Chand Baori Stepwell, Abhaneri in Rajasthan. We enjoyed every moment in this quiet family run hideaway with exemplary personal service at every turn. The team arranged unique experiences for our family that cannot be duplicated anywhere else in the world, and we were so thankful. Take advantage of an opportunity to have a private dinner at the majestic baradari surrounded by the palace lawns, attentive staff and the harmonious notes of an mughal fountains through the evening.
Umaid Lake Palace creates experiences resulting in fond memories for a lifetime!
Room Tip :
We stayed in a Royal Deluxe room which was huge and well appointed.
The whole staff are senior citizens and extra rude, zero hospitality.
Room service number is always busy and no help there. No cleanliness, as you can see in the pictures.
It’s a heritage property, not well maintained.
Spider webs are all around.
We had a package for couple of nights, but with these conditions, I checked out the next day and the major reason is the rudeness and the improper staff behaviour.
The staff is in some other impression and not understanding the value or meaning of guests and hospitality, they should understand that we are paying handsome amount for the stay and they are not doing charity on us.
I have been to many resorts but this was worst and spoiled my weekend , even a OYO is better then this.
The hotel is a very impressive palace with a wonderful garden. The rooms are large and well equipped- Unfortunately the service was by far not on the same high level. For example my first room was not prepared for a new guest (The bed was not ready prepared, no pillow, no blanket). The second room was ok. I should recommend to train the staff as soon as possible to improve the standard of the service.
Stayed one night as part of organised tour . Lovely grounds , good room very pleasant location. Tour organised with hotel a cooking demo , henna tattoos , and we had a fun evening dressing up in turban's sari's and dancing to Bollywood , western and traditional music. Best place we stayed on our trip.
After a whole week of exhausting travelling by bus and visiting Rajasthan, having a rest at Umaid Lake Palace is a good idea. The place is quiet though still too close to the main road and its endless horning. The rooms are bigger than an European flat, the food is great and the service is top. If you have the choice, take a room on the back of the Palace, otherwise you’ll hear the trucks and buses horning all night through.
