Raffles Udaipur has opened in the Indian city of Udaipur, on a 8.5ha private island in the middle of Udai Sagar lake.
The hotel offers 101 rooms, suites and signature suites, which interweave western cultural references with Rajasthan’s royal heritage and elements of Mughal architecture.
Planners may avail the 836m2 Grand Ballroom including its pre-function area, multiple outdoor gathering areas, or the on-site 400-year-old temple to organise memorable events.
F&B options include The Writer’s Bar, Indian speciality restaurant Sawai Kitchen; The Raffles Patisserie with freshly-baked breads and classic French desserts; as well as Harvest, a farm-to-table dining experience with produce foraged from the estate farm, spotlighting the region’s food traditions.
Meanwhile, the iconic Long Bar, a hallmark of the Raffles brand designed with European wood and leather, with engravings by local artisans, offers fine Indian spirits, single malts, local brews from across Rajasthan and the signature Udaipur Sling – the Singapore classic remade with fresh produce from the island and homemade syrups.
Recreational amenities include the Raffles Spa, a fitness centre, and a swimming pool, while activities that can be arranged for guests include guided farm tours, astronomy, yoga and meditation. Culinary enthusiasts can also enjoy a co-cooking experience at Rasoi, the cookery school.
