Bottom Line

Situated in the outskirts of Udaipur, about a 20-minute drive into town, The Ananta Udaipur is a sprawling four-pearl property with 160 rooms and suites and loads of on-site amenities. The resort's design is inspired by Balinese architecture, and the rooms feature a mix of contemporary decor and Indonesian design elements such as woven roofs. Features include multiple restaurants, a ton of activities for kids, and extensive meeting and event space, both inside and out on the property's sprawling lawns. There's also a large, lovely outdoor swimming pool and a spa with all sorts of Ayurvedic and international treatments. While the Ananta is a great spot to stay for those looking for peace and quiet, travelers wanting to be closer to the sights in Udaipur may be better off at the Chunda Palace Hotel, which is closer to town.

Scene

Large, upscale resort with gorgeous views -- popular with couples, families, and Indian wedding parties

The Ananta Udaipur is an upscale property with quiet, rural surroundings against the backdrop of Rajasthan state's rugged Aravalli Mountain Range. The rooms and facilities are spread across a huge expanse of tropical foliage, grass, and semi-arid desert soil, across multiple structures with stone facades and terra-cotta tile roofs. Because the property is huge, some guests are left with no other option but to call and wait for internal shuttles to take them from point A to point B, which is among the chief complaints of past guests. Most visitors are couples or families looking for a quiet alternative away from the center of Udaipur, and the hotel makes for an excellent wedding venue, with lots of outdoor event space for romantic ceremonies. 

Location

In a quiet area in the rural outskirts of Udaipur, about a 20-minute drive into town

The Ananta is located in a quiet, rural area outside of Udaipur. There's not much to see or do within walking distance, but the hotel does offer shuttle service into town. It's about a 20-minute drive to both the Monsoon Palace and to the main historic part of town on Lake Pichola, where major sites such as the City Palace and the Jagdish Palace are located. Anticipate about an hour to get to the Maharana Pratap Airport or about 25 minutes to the railway station.
