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.
