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
My husband and I splurged towards the end of our trip and did the "Raas Hopper" package- staying at both the Raas Devigarh and Raas in Jodhpur. I'm so glad we did! Our room was sleek and comfortable, the stunning pool and hillside sunset views can't be beat, and the friendly staff were warm, welcoming, and always there to help. The waiters at the restaurant and poolside remembered us day to day and were lovely to chat with. It was a very intimate experience, despite being set on the grounds of a sprawling former palace. Highly recommend staying at the Devigarh, and doing the Raas Hopper if you're going to Jodhpur too- it included wine, decadent meals, and luxurious massages at both hotels. A wonderful place to recharge!

Lovely place. The design elements are fabulous. Beautifully restored and very good service. Sit in the restaurant terrace during the day and ask for Kaalu Ram to give you a bloody Mary. He spices them according to taste and sometimes according to his reading of your moods - almost always perfect. This is not your regular Udaipur trip. Its out of the lake area, but, an experience in itself and ofcourse the wonderful Eklingji temple is right around the corner. If they give off-season discounts then as a family take their main suite which has its own private pool and a (twice daily) turn down service (housekeeping) which rivals any other in the world - special. They also did a candle-lit dinner for us which was very romantic .... mostly because of the view and what they have done with resurrecting the place to more than its original glory.

To be honest, the trip to India was full of apprehension on my part, as I was wary of all the cliched issues that India raises for those of us who like our comforts and are wary of the food chain. Organised by Raj Solanki of Asian Voyages, Tailor Made Travel, we were cosseted and looked after in the most magnificent fashion, staying at the Oberoi in Jaipur and the Imperial at Delhi. This hotel however was different. It sits about 30kms outside of the bustle of Udaipur, nestled above a working village on a magnificent hill top set within stunning views of the Aravali Mountains. Unlike the other 2 hotels, this offers a more personal and gentle, boutique style, experience. It is not absolutely 6 star sparkling manufactured pristine and on arrival the Palace almost looks a little frayed around the edges and given my apprehensions, I was concerned. That concern lasted for all of 20 minutes. With only 39 rooms I think, the hotel is relaxed and has an easy feel about it. The facilities are wonderful, including Spa, Pool, Billiards and Ping Pong Room and a beautiful and luxurious suite for my wife and I and gorgeous rooms with views for my 2 twenty something children and their partners. The hotel acted as a refuge and was the first choice of the whole family. There is an informal serenity about it that you will not get from the big chain hotels, and was a welcome respite at the end of each of our 3 dayâ€™s travelling. Itâ€™s just â€śFar from the Madding Crowdâ€ť with the most glorious of staff to welcome and attend to you. The food is lovely but not tip top first class compared to others we experienced - but really good nonetheless. To eat and have breakfast or dinner on the Terrace watching the sun rise or set is worth a couple of stars on its own. If there was one hotel we visited that we would want to return to, this would be it and of course, it is not as expensive as the in-Town hotels.

Incredible hotel at a former palace. Great restoration work has made this 1800 century palace one of the most sofiticated hotels. On my top ten list of hotels in the world. Outstanding service. Excellent dining. Cleaner than anywhere.
Incredible property and hospitality! One of the highlights of our trip. Great place to relax in the mountains and spend a night between Jodhpur and Udaipur. I'm sure all of the rooms are amazing but we particularly loved our room and would definitely recommend booking the Aravalli suite. We were in the "Silver" room (each room is unique) and it was incredible. Great views of the mountains and the pool. Sunken bathtub in the room with views of the mountains was a great place to soak before dinner. The tour of the property was excellent. Such a fun place to explore. Waking up for sunrise and exploring the fort will be something to remember. Sunset drinks at the bar was also excellent. The private dinner in the Sheesh Mahal was a unique experience - private dining in the same room as the King and Queen and the staff really do make you feel that way with their welcome and hospitality. My girlfriend even wanted to get henna done last minute and they had the henna lady from the village there withing 15min. It was nice that they let her keep 100% of the cost and not taking a cut.
