RAAS Devigarh in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India
To reside in an authentic Indian temple is one thing; to do so in a village where the local community is a friendly, proud part of the experience is quite another. Situated at the gates of lush, lake-dotted Udaipur in the state of Rajasthan, Devi Garh by lebua – part of the collection of – offers an experience of clean elegance, opulence and architecture history. Minimalistic accommodations give way to semi-precious stones, marble tiles and inimitable 300-year-old arches.
Set off in the morning for the nearby village Delwara to enjoy a traditional Chai tea as a local guide leads you on a walk through this “Town of the Gods” – nearly every block boasts a temple, and friendly villagers delight in their shops, food and lifestyle. Drive 40 minutes to bustling Udaipur for a tuk tuk adventure between palace-studded hills, immaculate gardens and lakes. Return to the hotel where, upon request, the staff will erect a private dining tent for a memorable, feast-like dinner of curries, daal, lentils and saag on the lawn.

Reviews for RAAS Devigarh
If you ever envied the Maharajas, who lived in all these gorgeous palaces, then you should stay here. The hotel itself is in a restored fort and is about 20 km from Udaipur city.Surrounded by hills, it gives you a feel of what the lifestyles of the maharajas must have been . Other than the location, the service makes this place really special. The staff was courteous and always around, without being in your face or too laid back.The food is Ala carte, with a reasonable selection, although not a huge one.We stayed in a villa at the top most level of the fort from where the views of the surrounding village and the hills was spectacular, although not having a lift all the way up was the only negative aspect of our wonderful stay.A bit pricey, but worth every cent.

Devigarh is a fort experience which can be rated as amongst the best in the world. One must surely give it a try. The fort is situated near Udaipur in an area steeped with history and folklore. One can lounge in this fort , swim , play croquet and explore the building. Its all so relaxing. There is a lovely vegetable garden. The best rooms are in the fort itself. There is another set - not bad though, which were originally the royal stables I think. In the fort, rooms 31 to 34 are the best located. The hotel offers total luxury and one does not have to be inconvenienced with ancient non functional amneties, as is normally the case at many heritage places. Nearby are the famous Srinathji temple and Eklingji temples. Intact this hotel is the best way to visit these temples. Staff , from the General Manager down, are very courteous but never in the face. They are an epitome of the traditional Rajasthani hospitality. The only drawback - food. The breakfast on the terrace overlooking the valley could have been an amazing experience. It needs an overhaul. The Darjeeling tea is not upto the mark. Intact when I suggested Castleton or Margaretâ€™s Hope or Makaibari I was surprised to learn that the owners had a tea estate in Darjeeling. Still , would highly recommend this fort. It is an experience.
Stopped in for lunch Friday 17 November. Very impressive looking, truly stunning. Taken to the restaurant, shown to a table and ordered. Asked for the internet password and was told no, wifi for house guests only. Meal was two salads and a pizza. Salads very small. Pizza dough was soft and squishy rather than crisp and crunchy and cheese was certainly not mozzarella. Paid the bill and on the way out past reception was about to walk up the steps to look at the swimming pool but was stopped. Open to house guests only. For God's sake, I only wanted a look. It's a beautiful hotel but there's no warmth about it. Service is efficient but chill, and really, if I'm paying for a meal in their restaurant, how much is it going to cost the hotel to let me use the internet.

We have traveled the world - literally - and this is the most romantic place I have every stayed! The palace is truly stunning. We had a room at the very top right corner and the passage ways to get there, sitting areas, and views along the way - AMAZING!!! The room was very clean and spacious. We had two balconies off the room, one with a sitting area. We also had a meditation space in our room (circular mirror room with thick mattress down) that my two kids used as their bedroom. But let's talk about the grounds!!! This palace is amazing and they way they renovated it - they left out no detail. We enjoyed playing hide and seek and exploring. The staff even showed us two hidden passage ways. The common areas - reception, dining, lounging - all beautiful! The pool is a true gem!!! Although we had two young kids with us, I kept telling my husband how romantic the place felt. It is a great place to get away and relax. We had a driver that took us into Udaipur twice, so it wasn't too far from the city. Just to note, our kids were asked "to be more polite" while at the pool. The guy said someone was trying to rest and had complained to him. We didn't feel they were being loud, but that could be because they are kids and we are used to it. We just had a talk with the kids and it was fine. The next day there were other kids there too and it didn't seem to be as much of an issue. Just wanted to note in case you will be traveling with kids and worry about it being a quiet hotel. Even though this happened, it was still my favorite place we stayed in India.

Off the beaten track and most certainly worth visiting. The palace is quite stunning, and the way it has been converted into a first class hotel is excellent. Situated in the midst of hills, this is a marvelously relaxing place, helped along by great rooms, super bathrooms, a great swimming pool and total peace. A visit to the village next door makes a pleasant interlude from reading, swimming and sleeping.
