  • Excellent weekend getaway!!

    by Arya0745 on 2019-10-18 09:14 am

    We have had a excellent time here. Very hospitable staff, excellent facilities and food. There are lot of activities on offer for outdoor lovers like 4x4 jeep ride, village safaris, cycling, trekking and the list goes on. Very spacious rooms full of royal touches and comfort at the same time. This hotel takes you back in time. Would recommend this to everyone.

  • An absolutely outstanding experience

    The palace is beautiful, massive and labyrinthine. It was constructed in 1570 odd and has been running as a very modern hotel with all facilities for the past 22 years. The Rawat (title of ruler) comes there on most evenings and its a delight to converse with him and experience his hospitality. The rooms are large -- each is like a suite--and beautifully decorated. The food, particularly the Indian food is very well made and tasty. One is likely to overeat at breakfast because of the variety of dishes on offer (set), unlimited but not buffet. The value for money also is excellent. The staff and extremely courteous and helpful. Displayed on a wall is a genealogical chart (family tree) of the dynasty going back to 500 odd AD

    Some of the activities one could do are as follows:

    a) A full tour of the hotel itself which has many viewpoints, promonteries, and special rooms worth seeing such as the Sheesh Mahal (a room with extensive coloured glass). By the way there are some very old and huge Nissan jeeps in one of the courtyards not in use. You could ask for a staff member to take you around.

    Views of the town and of the lake and a derelict fort Gokulgad on top of it.

    b) Or, there is an audio tour of the Hotel which is recorded with the famout English historian William Dalrymple.

    c) Swim and lounge by the very pretty swimming pool

    d) Relax in the central courtyard which has very nice vibes and the throne of the dynasty

    e) A train ride through the nearby Aravalli hills including stops for feeding monkeys. Return by jeep. Tea and snacks in a wicker basket will be taken along by the guide.

    f) Jeep ride through nearby villages, and visiting
    --a Mahadev temple built inside a cave inside a massive rock
    --Memorial and cenotaphs of past rulers of the dynasty
    --Views of Anjana fort which can be visited on a seperate trip

    g) A beautiful collection of vintage cars in an outhouse near the Rawat's residence. There is a Sunbeam, very old Toyota, Chevrolet, De Soto, Dodge, BSA mototbike and more

    h) A nature walk around the lake and its environs

    i) Meet other guests - most are foreigners meaning non Indians.

    j) Go to the spa for a massage

    k) Go to the local market which is bustling. We bought Rajasthani bangles, and a Rajasthani special mithai (Chakki).

    l) There are 2 shops in the hotel too, offering Rajasthani curios, gift items, prints etc.

    m) One of the highlights of the tour was the evening singing and dance performance by local folk artists. I know this has become a cliche but it really is a very soothing experience. We were there for 4 nights and attended the dance all 4 nights. It is only half an hour long so one does not get saturated.

    n) As one of the other reviewers mentioned, there are some jungles about 22 km away where a tour could be arranged entirely at the discretion of the Rawat.WE did not have time for this or for the follwoing item

    o) There is a small mountain a few kilometres away with a temple of Mata on top. To reach it one has to wall 2 km and then climb 700 ft--so one for the trekkers.
    This place is a hidden gem and I thoughly recommend it

  • How to feel royal

    by clmk on 2019-10-09 07:31 am

    We arrived at Deogarh Mahal, where on arrival, we met the Maharaja, a lovely gentleman, who had a great discussion on many subjects with us. It was interesting hearing his history as well as the palaces, and surrounds.
    The room we had was quite extraordinary- a sitting room, a bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. All with great ambience.
    We had the chance to be able to look around much of the palace, and were shown what had to be the most incredible hotel room I have ever seen.
    The food was fabulous, we tasted so many more foods than we ordered. Yum Then the chef brought out a desert, for free on the instructions of the Maharaja.
    The tour thru the village and countryside, plus sunset nibbles was a total joy.The friendliness of the locals, true gold!!
    Plus fantastic coffee.
    THANK YOU ALL

  • It could be better

    by Ezzerider on 2019-09-01 06:04 pm

    We spent a night in this hotel and it was not the best. It has some good points though, first the food is excellent and well presented. Secondly, the staff do their best to hep and do a good joy after that it's down hill. The rooms were cleanish. Sadly. The first room we were presented with was unusual. We opened the door and there were 2 small single beds. We are a couple and I haven't slept in a single bed since I was 17. No TV,!!! I can't remember the last hotel that said it was 4 star with no TV. Dark, very limited windows etc. The second room which we stayed in, was a little better. It had TV but no where to watch it from. It wasn't in the same room as the main bed...very strange set up. It is an old palace of course. Very difficult to make a lot out of but not what I would expect for a higher end hotel experience. Have a good look around before you use this to stay in. Even 3 hours further up the road will give you better options.
