Devendra Garh
Ranked #4 of 276 Udaipur B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

I own an inbound tour operations company. I visited Udaipur with my family (cousins and stuff) from August 24, 2014 through August 26, 2014 and stayed at Devendra Garh. I don't know what to write and what not to. I had instructed the staff of my company to book a different, quiet and nice hotel; and they booked me at Devendra Garh.

The hotel is majestic; it's actually like a heritage home stay, however, it is much more than that. The area is huge with lawns and gardens on two floors and the main building is on a cliff like risen platform located magnificently at the bank of Lake Fateh Sagar in Udaipur and enjoys a pristine, calm and exotic location and amazing views of the lake and the hills around..

The rooms are very spacious, bathrooms are well lit and airy and both are very well designed. The hotel has a fine swimming pool. They have a good power back up; nice games zone for the kids and a provision for table tennis which I love.

The only "minor" or should I say negligible issue, is dining. Being a small hotel, they perhaps have limited staff and I assume that the women from the family that owns the property, cook for the guests too. So one has to place a bulk order for meals with a prior notice and getting something cooked on the spot during a major meal is a good question. Snacks and stuff are readily available though. However, I must mention here that the more than delicious food makes up for all of this. The variety served for breakfast is at par with any deluxe star category hotel and the taste is more than wonderful. Feels like home cooked food.

The family that owns the place enjoys complete control on operations. I don't know the name of the very smart lady who perhaps is a member of the family and oversees everything; She is unbelievably great and proves that women are better managers..I am sure this property will go places and will be listed amongst the best Udaipur has, provided they don't get complacent or become indifferent.

I look forward to stay at Devendra Garh again, and also accommodate my guests (foreign tourists whom my company caters to) at the property.

Room Tip: Pick any room.. Though the Maharaja room is the best in terms of size and amenities...

If you want a luxurious place to live in Udaipur, with an Indian home style feeling this is definitely the place to go. Wait this is not it. Very good food, huge garden, Vintage car collection and a breathtaking view of the Fateh Sagar Lake comes with the package. Value for money is 100%. A recreational kids room, TT table and a well maintained swimming pool. There is everything here for all kinds of travellers. The owners are kind and know the place in and out. Their knowlegde gives you a deeper understanding about the heritage and the culture of the place. Would love to visit the place again as and when I get holidays

It's a nice property beautifully situated across Fateh Sagar lake. The best part is the hospitality extended by the owners of the property.... they will never make you feel that you are staying in a guest house or a hotel.

With their friendly attitude, they always provided the homely touch.... whether it was the food, a cricket match in their lawns or a ride in one of their vintage vehicle.

We stayed there for 3 nights in Dec-13 and celebrated New Year Eve with them.... needless to say.... a memorable one...:)

They also organized Magic and puppet shows for the kids.... which the elders also enjoyed.

A BIG thanks to the Hiran family for making our stay a memorable one...

Room Tip: Go for the 'Maharaja' room... it has a beautiful view of the lake...
