Shree Vilas Orchid
Ranked #25 of 206 Speciality Lodging in Udaipur
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Stayed there for 1 night. You can stay here if you just want a clean and comfortable accommodation. Reaching this place is tough. Lake view!! not the one you want. Sound from Dhobi ghaat did disturb us a lot. No hot water. Dirty pool. Breakfast was really bad.

After staying in Paras Hill Resort for 2 nights we stayed in ShreeVilas for one night. I don't recommend this hotel because of following reasons:

1. You need to park your car far from hotel on road, no guard is provided by ShreeVilas to take care of your car.
2. You need to take Auto for coming in and coming out of hotel everytime.
3. It's narrow dirty lanes to reach hotel.
4. ShreeVilas is situated at the end of the lake where all dirty part of lake is gathered and can be seen.
5. Dhobi ghaat sound comes in 5.1 effect.
6. Grass was in bad shape, at same time we found park was well maintained in Paras Hill Resort.
7. Staff was not in dress and doesn't look well trained.
8. B/F menu frustrated me alot, in CP plan they have parathas, omellette, cerals, juice, breads, tea and coffee that's it. They don't have even fruits, poha, upma etc. Even juice served was very bad, and service was damn slow. I asked three times for juice.
9. My kid was taking shower, light gone, they didn't switch on generator for 5-7 mins and water was gone in bathroom. I literally shouted on house keeping staff and he switched on generator.
10. Staying there during winter is not recommend, rooms were very very cold. During same time period, we found cozy rooms in Paras Hill Resort.
11. They don't have shower cap, shaving kit in bathroom.
11. Not value for money due to above mentioned reasons, it's real worth should be Rs2000 per night.

Advantages:
1. Rooms are clean, bathroom is clean as well.

Summary, I will never stay in this resort again.

After moving through narrow lanes of Udaipur an unexpected entrance to a mystic and siren place called "Shree Vilas Orchid". The wonderful Pichola lake with the beautiful hillocks in backdrop that can be viewed from all the cottages makes the view very very pleasant. Over and above the personal attention being given by Mr.Rajeev Kalra owner of this beautiful resort makes the stay even more comfortable. Overall everything including the interiors,location of cottages,yummy food and personal care makes the stay even more recommandable. Would recommed all my friends and relatives to this place. Shortly planning one more trip to this mystic place with a longer stay...........

Room Tip: All the rooms are located with the same good view of Pichola lake so, opt for any of the room all ar...

Visted this wonderful place with friends ! Stayed for 3 days. Each and every day spent at the property was great. It has 20 beautiful cottages and it surely speak about the passion and class of the hotel. Facing the lake and a small pool was lovely. The evenings at the lawns were fabulous. Will recommend to all my friends..Surely will visit again !

This is a new property which started in December 2011. Four of us stayed here for 2 nights. In fact, we were there on the 10th day after inauguration. And we had a wonderful time.
This property has 20 luxury tents (the base and walls are made of concrete but covered by cloth, while the roof is of cloth only). The rooms have all the modern facilities (LCD tv, AC, mini fridge, really soft mattress, fresh linens and a really good hot shower). All the tents face lake pichola (ok, the back waters of pichola, not as clean as you may like, but unrestricted view of the lake nonetheless). The property has tons of space (a rarity in old parts of Udaipur unless of course you are staying in Udaivilas or Leela), a fairly big restaurant with a large lake facing out door lawn and a good looking swimming pool (didn't venture into it during december)

Pros:
1. Sense of space: Well spread out property. Its like a luxury resort in the middle of congested old Udaipur. All the tents are individual with a good distance in between
2. Lawns: We loved the lawns facing the lake. Especially the ones in front of the restaurant. You can enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the sun or a romantic dinner by the fire in the night
3. Tents: Really charming. You get the feeling of being in a tent, away from the hustle and bustle of Udaipur ...looking a lake Pichola and Udaivilas in the background....and yet enjoying all the modern amenities
4. Old town: This property is in the old parts of Udaipur. Has the Leela and the famous ambrai restaurant as its neighbour. But the most fascinating bit is the narrow lanes and
by-lanes with numerous small shops selling this and that. these lanes have a life of their own

Cons:
1.Access: Getting here is a little tricky. Lots of signs and turns...needs a little time to get used to it...but I guess thats the charm too
2. Parking: A sedan will not reach this place although there is a parking less than 5 minutes parking from the property. So if you have your own vehicle, please check in advance
3. Lake view: This is not the traditional roof-top view of lake Pichola...you wont see the Lake Palace or Jag Mandir...but its kind of has its own laid back charm

Rajesh, the owner of this place, is a helpful gentleman with the passion to offer a different experience. Overall, a great place to simply unwind!

Room Tip: All rooms face the lake. May be the ones in the middle could be a little better...
