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.
A very special location above a rural, working village. Great terrace to take a sun-downer, large pool and modern suites. Food was excellent and the staff extremely attentive. This was the end of the 'season' so the hotel was pretty quiet but along with the village this gave a very calming atmosphere all round. Thoroughly recommended.
This is a very incredible and unique palace hotel experience. The hotel has history, charm and the renovations have retained a lot of the original character of the old palace. We stayed in the Haveli Suite that overlooked the central court yard, pool and part of the village. The suite was spacious and had all amenities but had one toilet. The balconies were superb and were fantastic during sunset or an early morning coffee. There are two elevators to the upper suites but you will need to climb some stairs to your room. There are a lot of steps throughout this hotel. We noticed the palace and garden suites which had limited views but great location and no stairs to climb. At this hotel, we are certain those rooms are very nice. The pool was very refreshing and climate controlled during the very hot weather. The staff by the pool were very attentive and friendly. We visited the spa and we opted for the back treatment which was very relaxing. The food at the restaurant that serves the entire hotel is fantastic. They use fresh ingredients from the hotel garden or village and everything is freshly prepared. The menus includes Indian, Thai and Western foods. We had one specialty dinner in Sheesh Mahal which was a romantic night to remember. We had the best table in the palace and our own waiter who served us Indian cuisine. We took a day trip to the Kumbhalgarh and then. Delwara Village Walk. We would recommend taking bith trips. The hotel can arrange a driver for the Fort and there is a local tour company on TripAdvisor or the hotel can arrange the village walk. This palace is not to be missed on any trip to Rajasthan. We look forward to visiting again soon.
We stayed at this Hotel for 4 days. They were the most amazing and relaxing days. They have the best spa, Beautiful suites with different decor in each room. They have total 39 suites. We stayed at the Devi Garh Suite, which had the most amazing view of the valley and the village. The rooms are large with separate sitting area and large bathrooms with marble floors.The sunsets from the balcony are beautiful. They do have room service. Our dinning experience was excellent. Breakfast is all inclusive with fresh fruits, eggs, Indian parathas (bread) and cereals. You can enjoy the breakfast overlooking the hills. The service in the restaurant was excellent. The food prices are reasonable. There are no shops or restaurants nearby but if you want to go to the town, they can call the taxi service for you. Check in was quick and very personal. Everyone greets you with a smile. The pool was beautiful but the water was a little cold. We stayed by the jacuzzi. The grounds are well maintained. You can walk to the village and visit the 700 yrs old Jain Temple.The hotel also has specialize programs for yoga and meditation. We would like to especially thank Mr. Shreedhar (manager) for taking care of us and making sure that our stay was wonderful. If I go back to India for a visit, I will make sure I go and visit Raas Devi Garh in Udaipur.
This palace is a wonderful building. Make sure you do the free 15min tour that the hotel offer to appreciate its secrets. The views from every angle are breathtaking and the view of the sunset is very special. The bar, restaurant and pool are all perfect. There's a secret pool table, and you can borrow bikes to go into the village. (Do the village tour by the way - it's very good indeed.) My only slight reservations were that it felt overpriced compared to other nice places near here (R250 for a bottle of large bottle of water; R1000 for a typical main meal; R2000 for 60min of yoga) and I felt over served at times. But wonderful overall - thank you.
This hotel was the last on our fantastic tour of Rajasthan. We stayed here for 5 nights but wished it had been longer. Everything was absolutely perfect. Beautiful Palace Suite with views over the village. Excellent service in all areas of the hotel. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Delicious food. We are hoping to return next year for a longer stay after a tour of Gujarat. Thank you very much to all the staff. Ann + Derek, UK
After a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable ten days touring Rajasthan and tiger spotting in Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks, the impressive sight of the RAAS Devigarh palace rising up amongst the Rajasthan hills was a very welcome sight and before we even arrived we knew we would be in for a wonderful last three days in India! From the moment we entered our Palace Suite, with its views over this spectacular property and the surrounding village and hills, we were never disappointed. The RAAS offers suites in the garden area, close to the pool, which are great for families but to really experience this amazing palace property I strongly suggest you take a Palace Suite, all of which are quite different and most with amazing views. We were fortunate enough (Suite 50) to have a balcony and a small resting/dining area just outside, on the top level of the property which provided wonderful views. The suite is spacious and well laid out, with the beautiful, local marble featuring very significantly. The palace itself has so many hidden areas and it was fun to just walk around the various levels exploring the wonderful original architecture and features. Food is served primarily in the wonderful dining area just above the spa/pool with an outside terrace and marvellous views. In additional to the excellent (albeit slightly limited) Indian cuisine offered, there is a good selection of other dishes available and I am sure 'chef' would accommodate specific requests whenever possible. In addition to the main dining area, there is a good choice of food offered by the pool and 'in suite'. The staff were all very friendly and appropriately attentive and special thanks go to Gagan in the dining area and Mahendra Singh and Javed by the pool, who all helped so much to make our stay so very enjoyable. It was also good to meet and talk with Nikhilendra Singh, the owner of RRAS group, who was staying at the property at the time of our visit. Once again, congratulations to him on such a beautiful and well-run property. Overall our stay at RAAS Devigarh was a wonderful way to end our two weeks in India and when visiting Udaipur I would not hesitate to say stay outside the city and the lakes and experience RAAS Devigarh, as you will not regret it.
A restored palace in the hills outside Udaipur this is an amazing place to arrive and stay at. Welcomed by a shower of petals. Our suite was spacious, quiet and well appointed with views over the village and surrounding hills. The restaurant serves excellent food has a good choice and breakfast is served at your table, no buffet.The staff are professional, friendly and very efficient. Put simply this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at in India. My only regret is that I didn't arrange to stay here longer
Everything about this Heritage Property is excellent. My room had a private outside seating area, a wonderful bedroom and a huge bathroom with sunken bath. There is a wonderful Spa and an outside pool where drinks or snacks are served. The food at both breakfast and dinner was very appetising.
