The Oberoi, Udaivilas in Udaipur, recently visited by Santa Barbara Travel advisor, Kathy Reimer.

Hearkening back to a royal era, The Oberoi Udaivilas sets a dramatic scene on the banks of Lake Pichola. Designed as a Mewari palace, the resort recreates the luxurious ambience of a royal residence, complete with decorative water bodies and carved stone pillars.

The crown jewel of the hotel is the Oberoi spa, which offers Oberoi signature therapies in exquisite spa suites. The hotel offers two swimming pools and daily morning yoga.

World Cruise 2018: La Grande Bellezza

Silversea Cruises

180 Days Traveling the World in Luxury and Comfort

121 Days Traveling the World in Luxury and Comfort

It is, indeed, a beautiful world and this magnificent voyage from Los Angeles to Rome casts a spotlight on all of its richness — mesmerizing landscapes like the blue lagoons of Polynesia and splendors of New Zealand. Ancient wonders from Angkor Wat and the Taj Mahal to the epic monuments that straddle the banks of the Red Sea.

The ingenuity of modern-day man is also on display: Sydney’s Opera House, the Petronas Towers of Kuala Lumpur, the soaring skylines of Singapore and Hong Kong, forever competing in a global race skyward. La Grande Bellezza was designed to encompass priceless treasures like these. Although the ultimate prize may be more metaphysical — the pampered indulgence of your butler, the intimate ship and highly personalized service, the luxury of your spacious suite and culinary excellence and diversity of the cuisine — the joy of a Silversea journey, itself.
