Raffles Udaipur, a flagship hotel in the Raffles Hotels & Resorts portfolio and the brand’s first location in India, offers a fresh perspective on the city of Udaipur and region of Rajasthan, from a 21-acre private island set in the middle of the Udai Sagar Lake.
The property is reminiscent of a country estate, with manicured, ornamental gardens and panoramic views of the surrounding hills, lake, and a 400-year-old temple. The influence of the island’s flora and fauna can be seen in the intricate details of the country estate, “greater flamingo” being the most prominent one. The hotel is adorned with a variety of flora, ranging from the fragrant white frangipani and the night-blooming jasmine to spider lilies and the peepal tree that holds great religious significance.
