It’s the third time, I am honored to be invited to the Maharana Mewar Foundation Annual Awards celebrations in Udaipur.
Attending the awards ceremony is a unique experience and the lunch and dinner parties are very amusing.
However, part of the fun of traveling to Udaipur each year with 14 girls is … shopping.
Every year it seems we discover something new… this year it was the Oberoi Villas boutique.
Where to shop in Udaipur?
Udaipur Shopping Guide
1… Aashka : Luxury Lifestyle Boutique
My favorite store in Udaipur.
Aashka is owned by Princess Bhargavi of Udaipur. She values and explores traditional and modern art forms to bring in her boutique exquisitely crafted merchandise.
Love the collection of clothes, shawls and home wear. The merchandise has fixed reasonable prices.
My most beautiful Amrapali earrings are from her shop.
Go for dresses by Greek designer Yvonne Alexandridou and more…

2…. Oberoi Udaivillas Luxury boutique
You will need an appointment for this one but it is worth seeing the hotel too, so you could ask for a “show around”.

I bought a Sunita Shanker black silk coat with embroidery, inspired by the rich traditional craft of India.
