Udaipur, Rajasthan

Rajasthan — and specifically Udaipur — was our home away from home while in India. We came to town with the intention of staying five nights. We stayed two months. Hey, plans change! The Royal Retreat was one of five different hotel properties we stayed in while in town. A popular destination to celebrate extravagant India weddings (see image below video), the Royal Retreat is chockfull of art with sprawling grounds and three pools. In a bucolic setting just outside of town — we loved it. The artistic flair left a lasting impression.
