About the center

Raas Devigarh

Founded in 1999

A place nestled in the ancient and majestic Aravallis just a 45 mins drive from the city of Udaipur, a tall standing testament to the Rajputana world of the 18th century is Raas Devigarh. This heritage palace has been responsibly restored so as to meet the needs of the historically inclined yet modern traveller.

Panoramic views, thoughtfully landscaped gardens, swings, fairytale turrets & arches, temperatured controlled jacuzzi, turquoise blue swimming pool, minimalist interiors and Artefacts of house of Mewari are what await you at Raas Devigarh. History has it that ‘Devigarh Palace’ was completed in the year 1760 AD during the reign of Rajrana Sajja Singh II.

The restoration project lasted 15 years and took a talented team of 750 people, the palace hotel was finally opened in 1999 offering a blend of the old era and the new world. In 2015 the property was upgraded and rebranded as Raas Devigarh.

“Raas Devigarh is an intimate immersion into a theatrical and primordial dreamscape. RAAS Devigarh is potent. To stay here is to obtain a steady, surprising and joyous sense of resting in what by any standards can only be described as the perfect spot.” -- Conde’ Nast Traveller.

It is also an ideal destination for evening drinks for 25-30, providing an open-air venue with enviable views.

The Hawa Gokra is another intimate setting for meals. The room was originally built with many windows to harness the refreshing energy of the natural breeze and keep it cool in the summer.

Furniture covered with silver, and walls that mirror the luxury of the room, the Silver Lounge offers diners an opulence that has made it one of the most desirable places to eat around Udaipur.

Now open to all, you will be welcomed by black-top tables, many candles, and an array of flowers. A place for all seasons, winter visitors, in particular, will be delighted by the use of bonfires, placed for your comfort.

Enjoy the best of the palace’s cuisine under the stars, or sheltered from the sun under a canopy with cooling breezes. The Roof Top gives diners a unique vantage point over Delwara village and this lush region of Rajasthan, a memorable venue for lunch, dinner, or just to raise a glass to the good life.

Available for 4 guests or more.

Sheesh Mahal

The Sheesh Mahal is a highly popular setting for meals. This intimate room, with windows offering views from high over the Udaipur countryside, preserves the palace’s history in the hand-decorated mirrors that adorn the walls.
