Tucked away at the top of Lake Pichola, the Karohi Haveli is a 200-year-old traditional home that has been converted into a hotel by its namesake family, which excels at making guests feel welcome. Its position, on a small hill just a couple of minutes outside the bustle of the tourist center, makes it one of Udaipur's more tranquil accommodations. Out front is a manicured lawn (which you might end up sharing with the odd monkey) that looks onto a corner of the lake. A fountain stands as the centerpiece of the inner courtyard, which is surrounded by 26 rooms and suites on three levels. The prize rooms are the corner ones facing Lake Pichola and the City Palace, which have cushioned alcoves, draped saris, and little stained-glass windows. All rooms have AC for the summer months, and don't be shy about asking for a heater during the chilly winter evenings. A buffet breakfast is included in the price and is served on the hotel's rooftop terrace.—Vanessa Able
