My instagram feeds must have given you enough hints to convey that we’ve visited Udaipur, Rajasthan early this month. This was our first trip together as a team and we weren’t really sure what to expect, though we heard and read all about it through friends and by browsing online.
We were lucky to be there during monsoon season as the climate was soothing. It was a good excuse for us to run away from the scorching heat of Delhi as Monsoon was taking forever to start.
What we heard and read about the city before we traveled was undoubtedly true. But the experience is altogether different when you’re actually there and enjoying the view and beauty of the city. We fell in love with the lakes, the hills, fairy-tale palaces, gardens, vintage cars and their giant doors carved beautifully in almost all the palaces we’ve been to. We actually discussed how to smuggle one of the many doors we saw throughout our visit. No kidding.
The first hotel we checked in was Hotel Fateh Garh. A beautiful Palace settles on a hill within the very heart of Lake City Udaipur. We were immensely mesmerized by the beauty of the hotel. The room allotted to us was warm, comfortable and their complimentary tea bag sachets and electric kettle definitely stole our hearts.
The ambience and architecture of the hotel intentionally made us indulge and make use of the space and beauty that it stands. It’s a majestic blend of royal past and modern comforts, a perfect place for fairy tale weddings or an excuse to be treated as royals. Did we have fun? Hmm …
Let the pictures speak for themselves.
Now that the festive and wedding seasons are just round the corner, we grabbed the opportunity to do a traditional styling rather than the usual. This is the first post where I’m donning an Indian wear; hope I did execute the look.
Please do leave your thoughts.
