Kathy & Mike – India (Nov 2017)

Thank you for organising our holiday to India – it has certainly exceeded our expectations and we loved it all! I would say Oberoi Udaivillas is probably the most beautiful hotel that we have ever stayed in and we have travelled at lot!  Our room was perfect and we could watch the wildlife in the stunning gardens from our pool. We loved it so much we want to return (for longer next time!). 

Everything was amazing. We were absolutely delighted with the standard of accommodation and the staff at all hotels were absolutely wonderful. Such lovely people who cannot do enough for you. We were also so happy to have such a perfect driver. As you know I was slightly nervous following reports that I had heard about the challenges of road travel in India. As soon as I met Rajeesh I felt complete confidence – he was a very skillful driver and I felt completely relaxed at all times. The car was absolutely beautiful, very large and comfortable, and I congratulated him upon its immaculate showroom presentation. (Apparently he gets up at 5.15 am every morning to give it a complete clean and valet. I am really pleased that we chose to drive to Agra from Delhi rather than take the train. Rajeesh had perfect English and we enjoyed his company and comments upon the journey, seeing many interesting things as we drove. I would not have found a train journey so relaxing I am sure. In fact, had I known how good he would be, I would even have chosen to drive to Udaipur rather than fly from Jaipur!

The Oberoi at Agra was wonderful- a beautiful property and again wonderful staff. when they heard we were travelling to Jaipur that day they packed up a picnic for us having noticed what we had selected at breakfast they based it on that which was very observant of them.

At Agra we were surprised and touched by the staff wishing Mike ‘Happy Advanced Birthday‘ and presenting him with a cake at dinner! Then the next week, Oberoi Udaivillas did a special birthday celebration for Mike’s birthday at Udaipur and our waitress Ruth sent us photos she took on her phone!

The staff were so lovely! Here we are with Ruth and Jassi at Udaivillas:
