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
We recently stayed at the RAAS Devigarh in three rooms, two in the garden, and my parents in the Palace suite. The rooms were well designed, modern, with clean lines. Also, the bath was lovely, my daughter enjoyed a deep bath in the marble tub. The scenery around the fort is breathtaking, and we really enjoyed the view at breakfast. As we were there in November, there was no crowd, and that was great for us as well. The site doesn't mention that they also have many game rooms and activities, and o we were surprised to find a pool table, chess, and so on. Lastly, we were taken on a tour of the property by Vaishnavi, who was very caring or our stay. She was a wonderful host. Overall, I though the hotel compared well with the Taj Lake Palace, where we stayed next. By chance, my sister's room had a broken AC system that caused her and her husband to freeze all night, so their stay wasn't as nice. I would suggest that you check on these types of things (make sure the water works, the toilet functions, and the AC works) before settling in for the night, as there was no compensation for her discomfort. (a major difference compared to western hotels). My sister would recommend the Lake Palace :-)

Ok, sorry but we are getting use to living like a Maharajah during our time in India. Staying here at the Raas Devigarh was special in so many ways. Our group of 22 were scattered in various rooms, our was on the lower level, while not a grand view fro it, the room was very nice, only it in to sleep, and was very very comfortable. The property is amazing. They went out of their way to serve us, getting use to the rose petals raining down on us when we walk through the entrance arch. Service was at the Maharajah level, as well as the food. Pool area was very nice. This is a palace worth staying at, not simply to stop by for a lunch. Sunsets and sunrises are awesome. Was so cool to be here and dine in such awesome settings, the staff did an awesome job treating us special. Thank you.

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.
