Devi Garh is my favorite hotel in the world: the dream location in a desert village; the stunning architecture of the original fort and impeccable renovation; the amazing service - they all combine to make Devi Garh just the perfect escape to
relax in style.
The suites are gorgeously appointed, and most have a view of the surrounding mountains and village life.
The restaurant has an extensive menu ranging from traditional and modern Indian to Rajasthani specialties to continental food. There's plenty of choice but if you want something off the menu, they'll make it too.
The veranda bar is the perfect place to watch the sunset while lounging on the most comfortable daybeds.
The hotel's staff is incredibly tuned into guests' needs - and not only do they meet but often anticipate them: a glass of lemonade arriving unexpectedly by the pool when you think you're getting a bit thirsty, or a cup of tea and a shawl when the sun gets down and the temperature drops as you are reading a book on a daybed.
The pool, the spa, the private dinners in tucked-away corners of the palace... Everything is simply perfect. I could go on describing every detail, but you get the idea.
The village just outside the gates is absolutely picturesque and full of charm. And if you're feeling adventurous, you can borrow mountain bikes and explore a bit farther. If you do, bring your camera!
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Explore the village and the fields right outside Devi Garh. You can even do it on a camel's back, and the hotel will arrange it for you.
A hotel really doesn't get to be more spectacular than this. imagine an old palace perched on the top of a hill that has been converted beautifully in minimalistic style into an all suite boutique hotel. Well that is the Devi Garh. We arrived
late, but the staff were very friendly and showed us to our upgraded room (a palace suite). We had asked for an extra bed for our son, which wasn't in place, but the free bottle of wine was, and the bed soon arrived and was set up in one of the sitting rooms. In the morning we saw the most spectacular setting of the palace and the tour of the hotel was well worthwhile.
While the hotel is 40 km from Udaipur, we felt it was a worthwhile diversion, and were glad that we had not stayed in the city, but in this serene place instead. The only criticism, as others have mentioned is that the food was not upto the level of the rest of the hotel
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Get a prepaid taxi from the airport - and make your own arrangements with the driver re going to Udaipur and other trips. We did so and saved more than half compared to what the hotel was offering.
