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
I had been told by a friend that if I was going to Udaipur I should try to stay at least 1 night at Devigarh and she was right. Plan a day just to be in this amazing hotel refined not splashy and visit the village that will give you a different experience from the urban areas. The place, the service, the spa and the rooms are really outstanding. I was not expecting it to be so fulfilling and I traveled all around the world and I was in some exquisite hotels. It is expensive but if you stay just one night you should try to fit the experience in your budget even if you would then stay in a less nice place when visiting the city
The palace is really beautiful and very impressive. We felt welcome from the first moment. We have got an upgrade and stayed in a beautiful suite with a nice view. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was so big like some rooms we were staying in other hotels. The service was very good, the staff nice, friendly and helpful. The palace has a lot of interesting courts and rooms, like the billiard or the reading room. It is nice just to walk through the hotel. The food was OK, nothing special but nice. In the evening it's much to dark in the restaurant. There is a choice of books an games one can borrow. The pool is heated and big. Good experience!

We had hoped to stay in Udaipur, but there was a big wedding the weekend that we were there so a local friend recommended Devigarh and our travel agent concurred that it would be a good option. I had no idea what we were in for. It's a beautiful property with great service. We arrived after dark so didn't get the full effect of the place until the next day--but they had people throwing rose petals as we walked through the entrance and then presented our room keys on a rose petal covered tray--so we had some idea that it's a little over the top. Our group (16 of us) mostly stayed in the newer courtyard rooms. I think they must be less expensive b/c they aren't in the main building and don't have great views, but I really liked the simple and open layout of the rooms. I saw one of the suites--a duplex, which was very nice with an amazing view, but the layout was not great. The main building is a little like a maze. Good thing there are staff around to help guide you. The bar and the restaurant are also in the main building. The drinks and food are very good. I even asked (and received by email) the recipe for the upma that is served at breakfast. The staff is very good--organized and friendly. Everything is billed to the room and settled at check out. The pool is lovely, as is the hot tub. There is not much to do around the hotel property, so you'll have entertain yourself. There is a ping pong table, a pool table and some small table games in some of the common areas. I don't know how common it is, but the power went out briefly one evening. There are flashlights in each room, so maybe this happens regularly. It wasn't really an issue. I fell in love with the simple cotton robes in the bathrooms. I asked if I could buy one and the quoted me 5000 rupees (or something close to that) which seemed a bit high, but I decided to splurge. What was odd is that they don't have new ones to sell you. They just request one from the laundry and sell it to you. Had I known that I might have just taken the one in my room since the trims and details are all slightly unique. There was a new shop at the entrance of the hotel which has very nice British-designed Indian-inspired and locally made clothing. Not cheap, but some great things. This is a very different experience from staying in the heart of a bustling Indian city. It's very removed from the intense and raw energy that makes India special. This is the Indian royal treatment and it was great to have it be a relaxing counterpoint to other stops on our trip. We all wish we were staying just a little longer.

Nestled in the stunning Aravalli hills is the uber boho Devigarh, Arriving at the hotel there is a sense that you have arrived somewhere special and the hotel doesn't fail to deliver. Within its intimidating walls lies a stunning labyrinth, the layout of the hotel is really interesting with small corridors leading onto beautiful opulent rooms, centred around a pool area. The view from the hotel is most stunning during sunset which is breath taking. The rooms are average size and comfortable, service and food is impeccable with staff always eager to help. We were lucky enough to come from the Oberoi which is also stunning, but feel this had a more unique magical feel about it. I have recommended this hotel for years now and every person has loved it, its hard to describe what makes this hotel so unique, but will always remain one of my favourite places.

The second part of our RAAS Hopper experience, this dreamy palace of a hotel sits in the village of Delwara, itself nestling in the picturesquel Aravalli Hills. We had an Aravalli Suite high-up overlooking the village, with beautifully appointed bathroom and shower, and white marble everywhere! This hotel deserves all of its accolades.Food at the restaurant was exceptional, and every single staff member was well-trained and extremely courteous. The spa treatments included in the package were also fantastic, and the pool area quite majestic. Hats off to Nikhilendra Singh for developing this magnificent building as a comfortable, eye-catching home away from home.
