The Most Beautiful Hotel in Udaipur – Devi Garh Palace

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!) RASS 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, my husband, our 16 month old son and I headed off for a long weekend to experience this gorgeousness in real life.

Devi Garh is an 18th century palace looming over the valley outside of Udaipur. This heritage property has been expertly converted to an outstanding 5 star hotel, providing one of the most luxurious experiences you can have in Rajasthan.

Providing more than just a room to sleep in, Devi Garh showcases a variety of classic Rajputana decor and landscaping. The minimalist feel of the rooms contrasts nicely with the ornate architecture of the building.

Above & Beyond Hospitality

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.

Camel ride through the village around Devi Garh Palace Hotel

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.

If you have the opportunity to visit Devi Garh on your travels through India, this is one splurge you will never regret.

Have you ever stayed in a palace before? Is it on your bucket list?
