Jagat Niwas Palace

Rajasthan & the North

Rating: Mid-range    

Jagat Niwas Palace overview

This attractive Heritage Hotel is a 17th century haveli, centred round a courtyard and set on the shore of Lake Pichola. It's a perfect place to base yourself in Udaipur, within walking distance of palaces, temples and shops, and makes a peaceful retreat when you want to escape bustling city life. 
Guest rooms are arranged around the courtyard. The decor and furniture is traditional in style and many feature cushioned window seats. All have private bathrooms with hot and cold running water. Television and telephones add a modern touch.
The restaurant has views of the serene lake and the much-photographed Lake Palace, and the terrace is ideal for al fresco dining. Indian, Chinese and continental cuisines are served, providing plenty of choice. There's a bar for sociable drinks. The hotel has a small rooftop pool and an ayurvedic centre where you can treat yourself to a therapeutic massage.
As well as the usual sightseeing options, staff can arrange guided tours, excursions further afield to locations such as the Monsoon Palace and Jain temples at Ranakpur, and activities including horse riding. 


Open: Jagat Niwas is open all year. Location: Jagat Niwas is in the heart of the old city, facing Lake Pichola and beside the City Palace. It is 3 kilometres from the railway station and 25 kilometres from the airport. 

Rooms: The hotel has 29 guest rooms in 5 different categories: standard, haveli and raj rooms and pichola suites. All have comfy beds, ceiling fans and large windows, TV, phone, period furniture and en-suite bathroom. Some overlook the courtyard and others face the lake. 

Activities: The hotel is well located for sightseeing, shopping and taking boat trips on the lake. Staff at the travel desk can arrange a variety of additional excursions and activities on request. 

Facilities: The restaurant is situated by the lake and has a cosy indoor area and a lovely terrace for outdoor dining. There is a small rooftop pool. The ayurvedic centre specialises in massages. The hotel has internet access. There is a laundry service.

Mrs. Lesley De Quartel

"What a fantastic way to enjoy the water traffic to and from Udaipur on Christmas day, sitting on the roof top of the hotel with a beer or a cup of masala chai. We travelled to the hotel via tuk-tuk as the roads are too narrow to get right in and were amazed that such a fantastic place could be tucked away in such a central spot. As you climb the stairs to stand on the roof top, you are amazed once more to see you are right on the waters edge. The rooms are clean, well equipped and very spacious. One of the best showers we experienced in India - water comes via your own boiler in the bathroom. Meals could be taken in the restaurant or outside on the roof and there is a good menu to choose from. As its an Haveli you expect a little noise form closing doors and fellow guest but we had a great nights sleep. A good choice to stay in Udaipur."

"Room quite small and nowhere to put anything - we were staying 4 nights so would have preferred more space. Aside from this - loved the hotel - loads of character, great location. Service for breakfast rather slow and got orders wrong ( unlike other hotels it was not a buffet). Stunning lake views from the roof top and the restaurant."

"Looks like an Escher print, beautiful terrace overlooking the Lake for breakfast and dinner. Room perfectly adequate but not great."
