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!
Great place to chill out. The Raas Devigarh offers luxury at its best. The staff is excellent and non-intrusive. The swimming pool, a small gym and a spa complement the living experience very well. While it doesn't offer a very wide menu at its restaurant yet the preparations are excellent. Overall a wonderful experience.
We decided to cancel our reservation in another hotel in Udaipur and stay at the RAAS in Devigarh instead. Best decision of the holiday. This is an incredible hotel. Ascetically it is stunning, set in a converted palace with beautiful views over a small town and rolling hills. The interiors are modern and stylish. The food is sublime and the service is impossible to fault. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling around Rajathan, it is a very welcome break from the madness of it all.
A unique hotel in a stunning setting, Raas Devigarh is a compelling place to stay whilst touring Rajasthan. The old palace is full of history and has been beautifully restored, and is complimented by the newly built gardens, pool and spa. The staff are charming and can't do enough to look after you, from taking you on a tour of the palace and explaining the history, to the shower of rose petals as you arrive. They bring you towels as you get out of the pool, make rangolis in your room, and generally can't do enough to anticipate your needs. The food is good - although we were initially disappointed to find the restaurant had closed (end of season, but we would have liked to know before we arrived) so there was just one "all day menu" to choose from, and dinner was served in the bar - but it turned out to be no big deal as the bar area is beautiful, overlooking the gardens, pool and village, and Chef is prepared to cook anything you want. The food is excellent and we had one of our best meals during our holiday at Devigarh. Breakfast is also worth a mention as it is waiter service, not the tired old breakfast buffet. The spa is nice, with excellent Bhutani therapists and it has an all-inclusive price tariff. The rooms are spectacular - the garden rooms are in the modern courtyard below the pool, and are spacious and beautifully appointed with a backlit marble headboard behind the bed - but the best rooms are in the old palace. We were given the choice of 2 suites which was a nice touch - suite 28 which is modern and has a stunning balcony overlooking the hillside, and suite 37 which is in the centre of the front facade of the palace and inside the "men's" royal courtyard. This is the one we chose: it has 4 balconies, bedroom, lounging area, dressing room and huge ensuite bath and shower room, with spectacular sunset views from the main balcony where we sat sipping gin and tonic watching the light soften and fade. The hotel is generally very well run although there is one niggle - having bottles of toiletries in the bathroom refilled when the labels are dog-earned and tatty from multiple use (and a card asking guests not to remove them - unlikely I think!) was a miss from Raas - either supply smaller bottles or if you want to go the refill route then please have dispensers that stay clean and fresh for every guest. Otherwise attention to detail is excellent, with fresh flowers everywhere, beautiful lighting at night and first class service. We highly recommend the guided Delwara walk with one of the local guides - you learn a lot about the village and get to visit the Sadhna, a handmade textile cooperative selling stunning silk scarves for under INR20,000. (Check out "From Stepwells to Self-Help: Delwara, the Other Face of Rajasthan" in National Geographic").
This was our next to last stay in India, and it was by chance that we came upon the Devigarh as we could not get two nights at the Taj Lake Palace. We certainly did not regret this night as it set the stage for a superbly luxurious stay in Udaipur, first at the Devigarh and then at the Taj Lake Palace. It's actually hard to find the words to honestly describe the splendor, the service, the food and the surroundings. It was an enchanting evening, night and morning and we left almost regretting we did not stay one more night., but we were curious about the next hotel. All marble, beautiful inner court room with own covered patio to enjoy the sunset, marble tub and shower, did I say marble? Absolutely gorgeous all round.
Raas Devigarh is less a hotel and more like a small town in the South of France. What I mean is that you can wonder its many "streets" up and down hill and find so many surprises and places to hide. The place is so big and the suites so few by comparison that it never feels crowded. Be sure that you are not allocated one of the internal suites. There are a couple of suites inside the walls that do not have an external view and only really overlook the walkways. Apart from the view being relatively disappointing it's also a bit like being in a gold fish bowl as others walk by and check out your bedroom. I was initially put in one but was moved after I complained of my disappointment. All in all though I would direct any of my friends there who wish to visit Udaipur.
the hotel is about 45 minutes outside Udaipur in the mountains. we stayed for 3 nights and can only wish that it were longer. the Suite that we were allocated was probably the most luxurious room I have stayed in and came complete with 2 external balconies providing a twin aspect view of the surrounding mountains and the local village of Devigarh. the staff were also excellent and could not have been more attentive or helpful. the food was great and the menu included a choice of Indian and Western dishes I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
I stayed here for three nights. We had booked four Arvalli Suites and the rooms were tastefully done. The property is really excellent and about half an hour away from Udaipur. The Palace is surrounded by a very small village. They shower rose petals while welcoming you inside the property but fleece you once you are inside. Since we were a large group, the package included a complimentary dinner and spa as well. The chef was clearly told that we would like to taste Authentic Rajasthani cuisine and nothing less. But we were served some third rate dinner that cannot be served in even a highway restaurant, spoiling the mood in the evening. When we expressed our displeasure, the chef on duty came and apologised and said they were having technical difficulties. More than half a dozen people came and apologised profusely and pleaded with us to give a chance the next day for them to compensate.(All the words are as expressed by the persons from the hotel). We finally agreed and asked them not to make too many things but simple Indian breads and two vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes. While checking out, we found that we were charged 20000 bucks for the "compensatory lunch". The person in the front desk was absolutely rude and we had to give our piece of mind. So much for RAASHOPPING from jodhpur to Udaipur for a total of five nights. The chef, their manager and everyone came and apologised and offered us a discount. But, the entire 5 days experience was already spoilt and I would never recommend this property to anyone.They desperately need to learn courtesy and customer service. One doesn't mind spending when visiting such properties, but rudeness has no place in hospitality industry.
We stayed at the RAAS Devigarh in March 2017 for 5 nights and couldn't fault it. Everything from our welcome on arrival, our gorgeous room at the top of the fort with an enormous bathroom and 2 private balconies, the pool, the food, the staff - all wonderful. The hotel is about an hour from Udaipur but that was what made it perfect for us - the scenery surrounded by hills is stunning and the town of Delwara next to the hotel is not touristy at all. The hotel always felt very quiet and there were so many different areas we could use to relax in / have drinks / watch sunset etc that we rarely came across the other guests staying at the same time other than around the pool. Breakfast, lunch by the pool and dinner in the restaurant was always delicious and the menu had a good mix of Indian and Western food options. Perhaps a little expensive by Indian standards but we ate like kings and the prices seemed fair given the food was always top quality. On the last night the staff set up a dinner for us in a special room in the fort, decorated with petals and candles which was a really lovely touch. We would recommend doing the walking tour of Delwara village, and a stop off at the ruined Nagda temple one day on your way back from Udaipur. Like most of Rajathan the property itself has so much history as well and we loved reading up on that too whilst we were there.
