The ingenious owners have given life back to what was a derelict hilltop palace and it is now a luxury 'palace' hotel, the epitome of modern India, with an emphasis on design and detail using local marbles and semi-precious stones.

Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.

The huge suites are decorated predominantly in marble with individual colour themes. Panoramic views, a large green marble swimming pool, superb cuisine and caring staff make this a must for anyone visiting Udaipur.

The Serena Spa offers a wide range of treatments and therapies, spacious rooms, with relaxing sit out areas. There is a gym, steam, sauna and Jacuzzi.

The views from the fort are magnificent - out over the village and the Aravalli Hills. From Devi Garh guests can enjoy riding and camel safaris, walking and shopping in the village, picnics, excursions to Udaipur, the temples at Nathdwara, Eklingi and Rankanpur.

Why we love it

Because Devi Garh is an entirely modern interior design within the framework of a traditional 18th century fort-palace complete with endless wings, balconies, turrets and towers.
