RAAS Devigarh
Delwara

Top 10s logo 

RAAS Devigarh is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Venues for a Wedding or Party and Top 10 Hotels in Rajasthan.

The striking RAAS Devigarh perfectly captures the magic of rural Rajasthan and it is one of Ampersand’s favourites hotels, absolutely ideal for honeymooners. Once home to the rulers of Delwara, it is set in an imposing and romantic 18th century fort which retains many of its original features but has been converted into a contemporary boutique hotel with the wow-factor. Although it is located just 45 minutes’ drive from Udaipur, this unique fort-hotel is a destination in its own right, perched on a hillside overlooking the picturesque farming village of Delwara, just a gentle stroll away.

The 39 large, luxurious suites are achingly cool; all individually designed in a sympathetic, minimalist and pared back fashion with dramatic use of marble, precious stones and stylish flashes of colour. Each room is adorned with symbolism, such as a mural of marigolds which form the majority of flowers offered at Hindu temples across India. There are magical views of the surrounding village and the Aravali Hills from the numerous terraces, balconies and turrets, and guests may reserve one for a private candlelit dinner. The dining room and bar are supremely chic and understated, serving up delicious Indian and international dishes.

This hotel is a large and multi-tiered maze of beautiful spaces, where you could easily stay for a week filled with pampering, relaxation and exploration. By day, relax by the gorgeous green marble swimming pool, explore gardens which are maintained to perfection or make use of the excellent Ila Spa and fitness centre. Activities available at RAAS Devigarh include rooftop yoga at dawn, or off-site there is mountain biking, hiking, horse riding, camel trekking through the rugged Aravali hills. We highly recommend exploring the surrounding village, which offers visitors a rare glimpse of authentic small-town life without the hordes of tourists found elsewhere in Rajasthan.

Delwara is easy to explore on foot and the village itself boasts four 14th century Jain temples, which formed the inspiration for the famous temples of Dilwara near Mount Abu. Known as the “town on the gods”, Delwara once boasted over 1,000 temples, of which 400 were Jain Mandir Temples. Though many have turned to ruins, today every street in Delwara has at least one temple. Aside from temples, other highlights in Delwara include the Indra Kund, a lovely Step Well with beautiful carvings, and Audhi, which is an old hunting tower on Kantya Hill with panoramic views.

Exemplifying cool restraint, RAAS Devigarh is one of the few luxurious heritage hotels where you really feel like royalty, rather than just a visitor!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with.

An absolutely first-class service all round.
