The Leela Palace, the newest luxury property Udaipur has to offer comes in a distant third behind the Lake Palace and Oberoi. One guide-book likens it to a fine Disneyland resort and The Monster could not have said it better. That is indeed both a complement and entirely pejorative. But it is a beautiful location on Lake Pichola.
It is a bright, shiny new toy that is opulent and heinously gauche. Your tolerance for such a place depends on how jaded you have become. The Dining Room, headed by a chef who accrued two Michelin stars in France carries this thematic with a central wine locker made of glass and blue lighting out of Vegas.
