After Jodhpur, Madonna enjoys Udaipur


By Anil Sharma

Udaipur, Jan 6 (IANS) After spending seven days in and around historic city of Jodhpur, Madonna Sunday landed in Udaipur, a city of majestic palaces and beautiful lakes in Rajasthan.

"She came early in the morning at around 11.30 a.m. and straight away drove to Hotel Udai Vilas," informed sources told IANS.

Adorning the banks of Lake Pichola and standing witness to the historic City Palace, The Oberoi Udai Vilas captures all the romance and splendour of a royal era.

The hotel, rated as one of the best in the world, has premier rooms, luxury suites and private pool.

And if sources are to be believed Madonna - who has come on a private visit - is staying in the Kohinoor suite of the hotel. The suite, a 2,650-square-feet of palatial comfort, has fountain courtyards, a massive private pool, and a sitting room with real fireplaces.

She is likely to spend at least a night here and is expected to go on a sightseeing tour of the historic tourist city and would also take a boat ride Monday, sources said.

She has liked Rajasthan so much that she has extended her stay in the state by two more days.

"Earlier she was expected to leave the state Jan 5 but now she is slated to leave Jan 7 and chances are high she may further extend it by a day or two," the sources added.

The "Material Girl" accompanied by her husband, son and some family friends arrived in Jaipur Dec 31 by a chartered flight from the Maldives.

After spending a few hours at Jaipur airport, she flew to Jodhpur. And from Dec 31 to Jan 5 she was staying in heritage hotels near Jodhpur and enjoying horse riding among other things, the sources said.
