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. 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!

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
