The up­scale Ra­mada Udaipur Re­sort & Spa is bet­ting big on the des­ti­na­tion wed­ding and MICE seg­ment. Ac­cord­ing to Ratan Tal­dar, MD, Ra­mada Udaipur Re­sort & Spa, Udaipur has con­ven­tion­ally been a leisure des­ti­na­tion.

The 72-key re­sort, which started op­er­a­tions in Oc­to­ber 2009, has es­tab­lished it­self in the lux­ury hos­pi­tal­ity mar­ket in Udaipur. The MD feels the ar­chi­tec­ture of the ho­tel sets it apart from all its com­peti­tors. “The ar­chi­tec­ture is con­tex­tual pri­mar­ily to the Me­war re­gion, and specif­i­cally to the tra­di­tional build­ing lan­guage seen in the hilly out­skirts of the city. The court­yards, the ve­ran­das and the ter­races are the ex­ter­nal spa­tial el­e­ments, in­te­grat­ing well with the guest fa­cil­i­ties spa­ces. Max­i­mum util­i­sa­tion of tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als and lat­est tech­nolo­gies com­ple­mented with contem- porary life style is present in this lux­u­ri­ous re­sort.”

The pri­mary con­cept of the re­sort is of a cen­tral court­yard, around which all the four types of guest rooms are lo­cated, along with three lawns at dif­fer­ent lev­els, so as to cap­i­talise on the spec­tac­u­lar view of the city, fa­mous Lake Pi­chola and Sa­j­jan-garh fort (pop­u­larly known as Mon­soon Palace).

“How­ever, in the last few years, we have seen MICE and des­ti­na­tion wed­ding seg­ment driv­ing business in a big way. Cur­rently, in Ra­mada Udaipur Re­sort & Spa, Udaipur, the rev­enues are driven by a fair mix of leisure, wed­dings and MICE,” he pointed out.

Talk­ing about the var­i­ous ameni­ties of­fered at the re­sort, Tal­dar re­marked, “Ra­mada Udaipur Re­sort & Spa boasts of a spa with breathtaki­ng views of the city, heated swimming pool, Sa­j­jan­garh fac­ing fit­ness cen­tre and many ac­tiv­i­ties such as car­rom board, chess, ta­ble ten­nis, foose­ball ta­ble, cy­cling, aqua- sports, yoga and swimming ses­sions, Ra­jasthani cook­ing classes as well as mak­ing ex­otic cock­tails and mock­tails.”
