One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. We stayed in a lovely room with its own morni g room and private balcony where we sat out at sunset watching the monkeys in the trees. Food at the a la care restaurant is of a very high standard. I'm attaching a pic of the veg Thali which speaks for itself.
we had a really nice 2-day stay diner on top with a beautiful view was super fine bar afterwards ;-) there was a press presentation of Harley Davidsons with photoshoot ... nice we were woken by monkeys on the roof i didn't really like the massage ..
Arriving at this hotel you are greeted by a turbaned costumed drummer with attentive staff waiting to carry your bags up the many flights of stairs to your room. Welcome soft drinks at reception and speedy processing of passports meant we were shortly following David, the manager to our suite, room 216, in the former Zenana or women's quarters. It was spacious and beautifully appointed with a lovely swing seat and a window seat from where you could peer at the courtyard below. The large and comfortable bed covered with beautiful local fabrics was turned down for us each evening. The large bathroom had toiletries and views of the palace wall, with monkeys and birds sitting on the top. The hotel has a bar area near the maharaja's coronation chair, a small pool and spa, a shop selling good quality clothes, fabrics, pictures and jewellery. Several flights of stairs lead to the roof top restaurant where you may be lucky enough to get a seat on the maharajah's balcony to overlook the lit courtyard with owls and bats flying below. The other side has good views of the towns rooftops , the distant fort and the stars. The floor below has the lunchtime restaurant and the breakfast restaurant is in another part of the building with mirrored pictures. The waiting staff were pleasant, the restaurant manager was extremely helpful, and in particular we would like to commend Mr Jagdish for his very attentive service. The breakfast menu was extensive with different items each day. In addition to the main a la carte menu at night two local women came in to cook special Rajasthani breads over an open fire. The evening ended with a display of local singing, dancing and music. The colourfully dressed local dancers danced on swords and with a series of cooking pots on their heads. The local town is just outside the palace gates with a range of shops selling pictures, clothes, fabrics and silverware. There is an interesting fruit and vegetable market. The town folk were friendly and it felt safe. There were two atms. Our Rickshaw travel itinerary included an excursion to a local train, which included a jeep ride there and back, a visit to the local school, an hour on the train which zigzagged through the beautiful Aravalli hills and stopped twice briefly to fed monkeys or see birds. This was followed by a picnic at a local lake where we saw pelicans, with the driver and our guide. The latter' whose had been the royal families barbers for several generations. The hotel was also used by tour groups but balanced their needs with those of individual travellers well. We were reluctant to leave.
The Deogarh Mahal is owned bij the Maharadja from Deogarh and is a real castle with spacious rooms, decorated with many family pictures and nice furniture. The rooms are very big and all look like a palace. We even had a outside patio in room 208, great. The bathroom also is very big and hot water was no problem. Free wifi in the room. The hotel is in the middle of the town but it's a very quiet place. The restaurant offers Indian buffet and a la carte excellent food and if you want, a cool bottle of whine is possible too. The view from the top roof is great. Every one of the staff is extremely friendly and helpfull, you feel like a VIP. They offer some nice excursions too.
We stayed for two nights in this castle that has been converted into a hotel. We had two rooms and both were huge, ornate and uniquely designed. Our travelling companions were upgraded to the maharajas suite which we estimated to be in excess of 1700 square feet in size. It came complete with a large "reception" area, separate bedroom, a bathroom with double sinks and an enormous spa style tub and a separate hooka room! Low ceilings and uneven floors require extra care and attention but it's worth it to stay in this one of a kind hotel. We enjoyed early evening drinks in the courtyard and the rooftop restaurant was a lovely place for dinner. Both the food and the service were good. The hotel is a nice place to spend some time if you've been travelling a lot and need a bit of a break from a hectic schedule. It is easy and safe to wander the streets of the town. We hired a driver to take us on our travels in India. That was the best decision we made. A driver is more efficient and flexible than public transportation. And, it makes it easier to get to more off the beaten path spots like Deogarh. The cost is surprisingly reasonable. If anyone is interested in more information about hiring a driver, send me a message.
