Love royal palaces, heritage forts and regal weddings, but it’s all too expensive? Here are some great budget wedding venues in Udaipur that ooze royal charm and grandeur!
Fatehgarh is a splendid old world ‘rajwada style’ property at the western corner of Udaipur. It’s perched on a hill within the very heart of Lake city Udaipur and is a heritage property converted into a hotel with a lake view. Fatehgarh has derived its name from the Urdu word for victory ‘Fateh’, and ‘Garh’ or fortress in Sanskrit. Hotel Fateh Garh is based on vaastu principles which is vedic architectural style for balance and harmony of natures forces,it has interplay of the male and female aspects which is found more obviously in the spaces referred to as the Mardana Mahal, bold and exhibitionist – traditionally, the palace of the gentry; and the Zanana Mahal, intimate and delicate – traditionally, the palace of ladies. On advancing to the wondrous inverted palace, which is really mirror images of the Mardana and Zanana Mahal, we realize a harmonious intermingling of the yin and yang energies. It would take 10-15 mins to get here by car if you’re travelling from the city centter. Fatehgarh has 48 rooms and 3 outdoor wedding lawns that can take upto 200 guests. While rooms cost upto Rs 11000 in the peak season from October to March, the rate drops substantially during the other months.
Combining Fatehgarh and Rampratap Palace
Fatehgarh and Rampratap are sister concerns at a 10 minute distance from each other. Fatehgarh has a 48 room inventory while Rampratap has 29 rooms. Rampratap rooms cost Rs2000-3000 less than that of Fatehgarh.
Ram Pratap Palace is located just off the lake Fateh Sagar in Udaipur and is an enchanting budget hotel that combines old world charm with modern comforts. Ideally located on the banks of the lake Fateh Sagar is the spacious Raaj Bagh Garden Restaurant, which is across the street from Hotel Rampratap Palace. The hotel is mere 5 kms away from the railway station and 25 kms from the airport.
- Chunda Palace
Chunda Palace is a quaint 46 room property at the heart of the city with beautiful interiors that transcend you to the lavish bygone era. Personally I love the ambience of Chunda Palace though a lot of people find its decor a bit ostentatious.
- Udai Kothi
If you are looking to have an intimate wedding in Rajasthan with just your close family and friends in attendance, Udai Kothi is a great option. Its exterior is a glorious pure white that oozes royal charm. The hotel can even arrange a boat ride to lake Pichola for your guests or even elephant polo if you so desire! Located at the heart of the city, this hotel has a lot of character with each guestroom having its own style. Enjoy the carefully selected furniture, soft accents and décor; and a delightful view that can be savored from the jharokha (window seat).
I recently discovered this beautiful new property called Labhgarh that is located at Cheerwa Village which is around 15 kms from the main city of Udaipur. Labhgarh offers 41 luxury rooms and is a great option for you to consider if you want a royal feel on a budget. Most rooms have a mountain view and modern amenities. While Labhgarh has a rustic charm to it, there is no denying that it is a new property and is not a heritage property. It’s facade is similar to that of Deogarh Mahal and is a cheery canary yellow. With a gorgeous pool and swaying palms, Labhgarh is a pleasing property for a budget royal wedding in Udaipur.
5. Deogarh Mahal
The bright ochre yellow and white edifice of Deogarh Mahal is regal and inviting. Deogarh Mahal is perfect for a small and intimate wedding of 100-150 guests. A room costs Rs 11000 in peak season and would cost around Rs 7000 in the low season.
6. Amet Haveli
Amet Haveli as the name suggests is a beautiful Haveli styled hotel at the western banks of Lake Pichola.
