Devi Garh Udaipur

Devi Garh Udaipur
                                I was now on last leg of my Rajasthan tour and was to travel by road from Jodhpur to Udaipur. Started early morning from Jodhpur and made good time to reach Devi Garh a luxury resort, made popular by now divorced Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar wedding. The road from Jodhpur to Udaipur is fairly OK except for some bad patches. The usual time taken is about 6 hours.
Arravali Suites
Palace Suites
                                Devi Garh or Devi resorts as it is also called, is situated about 28k before Udaipur, The fort, surrounded by lush green fields and mountains on three sides, overlooks the village of Delwara, and is close to the temples of Eklingji and Nagda. Devi Garh fort palace with its contemporary interiors set in an 18th century fort palace, has been described as one of the most romantic places on earth, and it surely lives up to that. The lovely fort palace of Devi Garh offers a variety of palace suits each unique in it's own way. The well spread out Palace has been resurrected from almost scratch and now the garden, palace, terrace and the pool has a divine look. I was accompanied for a Palace tour as this was my first visit to the place followed by a sumptuous lunch. The accommodation is all suites with the Devigarh Suite having a private Jacuzzi and a semi private swimming pool,luxury at it's best. 

 All the palace suites have either balconies or bay windows, which overlook the lush green fields and the mountains which surround Devi Garh. Each suite is accessible through a traditional "aangan" (courtyard) with contemporary design. Each suite is decorated with semi precious stones and is unique in it's own way.

Garden Suites Sitout
The Garden suites at Devi Garh each have their own private lobby, garden and tented terrace, and overlook a vivid rectangular field of flowers. In each of the suites, the decor (based on local green marble) brings the serenity and beauty of the garden inside. A carved marble tree of life surmounts the headboard of the bed, adding to the effect of a garden within the room.

Apart from the suites there is also a lovely spa by L'Occitane presenting a fusion of Indian and Mediterranean well -being treatments 

 

 The evening at Devi garh was wonderful with the sun setting and turning the already golden fort more beautiful and paint it in lovely hues of red and gold. 
Devi Garh near Udaipur is a lovely place to be for a romantic holiday, a honey moon destination or a family outing. Also a great set up for a high end corporate meeting or training.
