Attractions during your stay

For visitors to Udaipur, and guests at HRH Group of Hotels, Regal Visits have been thoughtfully created and organised to make them ‘Experience the Original in the Abode of Kings’. Without a tour of The City Palace Museum, a visit to Udaipur is incomplete for visitors from the farthest lands or from the rural heartland of Rajasthan or Gujarat! The Museum inspires a wide spectrum of visitors: from those who are dazzled by the spectacular architecture and views to those who marvel at the display of rare paintings, murals, arms and armoury. The Mewar Sound and Light Show, every evening at the Manek Chowk, is a high point for visitors and guests, who are able to relate to the glorious history of Mewar through this son et lumiere.

Similarly boat rides and boat charters across Lake Pichola are a source of perennial delight for visitors, especially children who marvel at the sight of the City Palace stretching along the banks till the eye can see. For those who visit Jagmandir Island Palace – a palace on an island in Lake Pichola – there’s Jagriti: a heritage exhibition onsite tracing the evolution of the pleasure-palace and how it is now catering to requirements of 21st century visitors; an all-day café, bar, stylish dining restaurant and the spa make Jagmandir Island Palace a delight for the body, mind and soul.

Regal Visits to Crystal Gallery and The Vintage & Classic Car Collection are memorable for those who love the finest things of life. Visitors usually spend hours at these collections specially displayed and curated at Fateh Prakash Palace (within the City Palace) and the Garden Hotel (outside the City Palace) respectively. These Regal Visits define the experience of being in Udaipur, a heritage-city where the glorious past lives on…to inspire and involve you, your family and friends.


Regal Experiences

Regal Experiences distinguish and define our promise of ‘Experience the Original in the Abode of Kings’. At our Grand Heritage Palaces and Royal Retreats, heritage-venues have been developed to successfully conduct meetings, incentives, events, conferences and film-shoots. The exclusive range of heritage-venues, unparalleled and most-sought-after, match the creative needs and hospitality requirements for such experiences, often once-in-a-lifetime experiences!

Where else can glorious history become a part of present-day celebrations…Global celebrities, multinational corporations and indian business houses have conducted their corporate events and personal celebrations at our heritage-venues. Heads of State, film stars, celebrities from the world of glamour and sports have graced these occasions that have made headlines throughout the world.

Film production houses – from Bollywood to Hollywood – have captured on celluloid the timeless romance of Udaipur and Rajasthan. We work, as a team, with film crews to ensure that shooting schedules are completed on time.

Regal Weddings

Regal Weddings have been pioneered by HRH Group of Hotels; since 1999-2000, we’ve been at the forefront of creating a veritable revolution in indian heritage-hospitality. Celebrations, wedding ceremonies and receptions have been organised at Shiv Niwas Palace, Fateh Prakash Palace and Jagmandir Island Palace in Udaipur; at Gajner Palace in Gajner (near Bikaner), the entire palace complex has been transformed to host a dreamy royal wedding for celebrities from India and all over the world. 

Every Regal Wedding at HRH Group of Hotels has made headlines in the Indian and global press; with the media-teams often camping out at the palace-complexes simply to get a glimpse of the VVIP guests! It adds to the experience and maturity of HRH Group of Hotels who are able to control the media-persons and secure the confidentiality of the VVIP guests, as per protocol. At Shikarbadi Hotel in Udaipur, Karni Bhawan Palace in Bikaner, and Gorbandh Palace in Jaisalmer, Regal Weddings have been organised to suit the requirements of guests from India and overseas.
