    • The Leela Palace: the other mythical palace hotel in Udaipur. Located at the foot of the Aravalli Mountains and on the shores of Lake Pichola, it is a place that will transport you to your childhood listening to stories about Maharajas. The truth is, you will feel like you’re in a movie, specifically that style that seems to be taken out of the story about Maharajas. Although it is accessible by land, it also offers the option of a romantic arrival by boat.
