All the Best

As the title suggests, readers of this blog truly are the BEST! I am always so humbled by the kind emails I receive from people around the world. I am also inspired by so many of you. Over the weekend I received a beautiful email for a reader who saw my post on the Oberoi hotel in Udaipur.

She wrote to say: "It is indeed one of the most spectacular hotels ever! I was just there in November on a 3 week trip through Rajasthan with two girlfriends and out of all the fabulous hotels we stayed at (including the Oberoi in Agra, the Amanbagh, and the Shangri-la-like Ananda Spa in the Himalayas), this hotel took the cake. Utter unrivaled luxury. We had two lakeside rooms with steps leading to the semi-private 'moat' pool which encircled the front of the property. I have some photos I am enclosing. Every doorway, window and corridor open onto an unforgettable vista. It's chic, chic, chic!"




Thank you Lisa...you're the best!

Wow. A three-week trip through Rajasthan with such gorgeousness and splendor at every turn. This MUST be Shangri-La! Such fortunate travelers.

I'm obsessed with the Oberoi Udaivilas! I would go for the pools alone. So beautiful. Even the main pool looks amazing; I love the black and white tile. I want to go to India but I haven't been able to convince my husband. We have a couple of friends who have not had the best of vacations (in India, not the hotel).

This hotel is so well designed. I was there in March this year. I could only take some pictures at night, since we spent the day at the Taj. We didnt stay at the Oberoi, but went there for sundowners. There was some Rajasthani folk artists performing for the guests. Such a romantic ambiance. I'll post some of my pics on mochatini.org when its ready.
