Nestled in the Aravalli Hills of the Udaipur area, RAAS Devigarh, an 18th century palace, holds a commanding position over one of the three main passes into its valley. Devigarh invites visitors to experience this outstanding heritage property which has been transformed into one of the premier five star hotels in Rajasthan.
Much more than just a place to stay, Devigarh is a testament to the beauty and charm of old-world Rajputana, showcasing an array of decorative styles and landscaped gardens. The palace was restored to its former glory in 1999 and converted into an all-suite luxury hotel. The modern, minimalist design of its interior juxtaposes with the ancient and ornate architecture of its exterior.
This unique blend of old and new is encapsulated at its entrance, where two 12-foot blocks of uncut, white marble stand to attention. These stones, in this raw and pure condition, are a comforting promise of the new and unrivalled experiences that lie in store for every guest at Devigarh.
Strategically placed on top of a hill in the Aravalli Range, the Devigarh Palace overlooks the village of Delwara. Its construction was completed in the year 1760, under the reign of Rajrana Sajja Singh II. The palace was originally built using locally mined marble, a practice that was followed once again during its restoration, with semi-precious stones being used to adorn all the suites in RAAS Devigarh.
Known earlier as Delwara Fort Palace, the origins of the building lie long before its completion in 1760. In recognition of his service to the famed Maharana Pratap of Mewar, the principality of Delwara was gifted to Rajrana Sajja Singh and his brother, Ajja Singh, following the battle of Haldighati in the year 1576.
The palace fortress, as it can be seen today, tells the tale of its brave and loyal benefactors, and with the coming of the modern era it has been transformed into one of the most spectacular luxury travel destinations of the region. The restoration of the hotel was undertaken by a team of 750 people over a period of almost 15 years. Finally, in 1999, Devigarh opened its gates to the public, offering visitors a blend of new-world comforts and old-world charm.
RAAS Devigarh offers visitors 39 unique suites to vacation in, each offering a unique experience. Melting luxury and beauty seamlessly, each suite offers visitors their pick of modern facilities. With amazing views of the region’s hill range and the countryside, RAAS Devigarh lets you soak in the tranquil landscape of Rajasthan, away from the bustle of every day life.
