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.

We are so grateful we had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful palace. It's reassuring to see old buildings like this being so lovingly restored. The before and after photos show how much work has gone into this. The owners must be thanked because without the painstaking restoration work, these places would be eventually lost and certainly never be enjoyed and appreciated as they can be now. We highly recommend a walk down into and through the village of Delwara too. Hopefully someone from the village will offer to show you around as we were. There are lots of hidden gems to see. People make a place special and everyone working here could not have done more to make us feel so welcome and totally pampered. You really are all a very special 'RAAS family' We usually stay at the RASS Jodhpur for work, but took the opportunity to visit RAAS Devigarh. So glad we did as it was wonderful. We so enjoyed the drive from Jodhpur to Devigarh with our lovely driver Vijay and our stop at Ranakpur Jain temple ( you can't miss this very beautiful and peaceful place if you do this drive). We felt totally safe and comfortable with Vijay behind the wheel. He took us into Udaipur too for another lovely day and showed us many interesting places we wouldn't have thought of going. Thank you to everyone for making it a lovely time for us. See you next time. Colleen and Adrian

The building is stunning. I was lucky enough to be upgraded on arrival into one of the Palace Suites, which was absolutely lovely - spacious, very comfortable, beautiful decor, great bathroom with toiletries. Staff were great - attentive without being pushy, and happy to leave guests to their own devices - the second floor lounge, with its minimal furnishing and fantastic, open fronted balcony overlooking the village is a great place to while away a couple of hours with a book. I think the restaurant was being re-developed while I was there, so I ate sat outside the bar. Fabulous views and the food was great. I enjoyed the couple of excursions organised by the hotel, to Elkingi temple, but particularly the village walk. The guide, a young guy associated with an NGO working in the area, was a local, who took me to several places I'd missed on the self-guided tour I'd done when i arrived - particular favourite was the small but very perfectly formed Jain temple. Being on a slightly restricted budget meant that I didn't have any of the spa treatments - if I win the lottery, I'll be back to try them out!!

I spent 2 nights while on business at RAAS Devigarh while in Rajasthan. My colleague wanted to stay in a fort and a fort he found. RAAS Devigarh blew our minds and we could not believe how incredible the property was, rich with history and charming features set in an almost movie-like setting. Just unbelievable. The staff were outstanding with genuine and sincere attention to our needs. We were feeling a little down when we checked out but we promised each other we would be back, if not on business, then with our family to share this wonderful hotel and ensure it becomes an unforgettable stay for our loved ones too. RAAS Devigarh is a must-do, must-stay property when passing through Rajasthan. Incredible India!

We stayed at this Property a few years ago on our honeymoon, when it was still called the 'Devigarh Palace'. Nestled in the Aravalli hills, a 45 mins drive away from Udaipur, this is a beautiful property - rustic, old worldly with a sense of understated luxury. Each suite is unique with tasteful interior aesthetics. We stayed in the Aravalli suite during our stay that offered stunning views of the aravallis, alcoves for lounging and in-room dining. The service is impeccable. A highly recommended place to unwind as royalty!
