Travel Memories: Devi Garh Palace

Welcome to the A to Z Challenge, an initiative that invites bloggers to post an alphabet-themed post every day (excluding Sundays) during the month of April.  As part of this challenge, I’ll be sharing some of my travel memories to known and unknown places in the hope to inspire your travel dreams.

D is for…Devi Garh Palace (Udaipur, India)

The difficult part of living abroad is that eventually you have to leave. When our time was almost up in India, I knew I had to fit in a few more places from my never ending (India) bucket list. One of these was the beautiful (and expensive!) Devi Garh Palace Hotel. I had been to Udaipur several times, but had never stayed in the iconic heritage hotel outside of the town.

As a special birthday present (see the birthday travel theme here!), my husband, our 16 month old son and I headed off for a long weekend to experience this gorgeousness in real life.

The hotel was everything I expected and more. Granted, this was probably not the most toddler friendly choice we could have made with the abundance of marble stairs, balconies and sharp corners, but it was still perfect. The staff were terrific with our son – they made him special meals at special toddler friendly times, played with him and baby sat him so that we could have a fancy candle-lit birthday dinner on one of their beautiful balconies.

We spent the weekend exploring the nooks and crannies of the hotel. Around every corner was another private room or balcony to explore or relax in. We watched the wild parrots come and go from our windows. We swang on the massive wooden swing in the courtyard.

And as an added bonus to our visit we had a 2 hour camel ride through the village and countryside.  It was another magical birthday experience and such a special way to begin saying goodbye to our home for almost a decade.
