The Lily Pond Courtyard is perfect place for al fresco dinners along with theme events on the Mewar Terrace. You can also take lake trips on the ceremonial barge for exclusive parties.

The hotel will be happy to arrange cultural excursions to explore Udaipur and the surrounding area or even a spa experience on the spa boat which can sail to calm and scenic spot on the lake.

This property is perhaps Rajasthan's most iconic hotel and an amazing choice to experience Udaipur in style.
