No. 3 Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur, India
A palatial resort designed in Mewari style, the Oberoi Udaivilas sits gracefully on its own 50-acre island near Udaipur. Built on the former hunting grounds of maharajas, the hotel preserves more than 40 acres as parkland and employs a gamekeeper to care for the spotted deer and wild boars. Check-in starts with a private boat ride past palaces on Lake Pichola. Arriving at the island, you’re greeted with a shower of rose petals and a welcoming drink with the general manager. A personal butler will then escort you to one of the 87 rooms and suites.
