Ravla Khempur aka The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is an absolute must visit! The hotel is charming, the village is unspoilt and the atmosphere is intoxicating. All the staff were amazing and Nitin, the Manager, is a fabulous host. Candlelit dinner on the rooftop terrace, breakfast and lunch served in the courtyard, dancing at night, foot tours through the village....we... More

This charming rural palace is about an hour outside of Udaipur but its worth the drive. The room is comfortable and clean. This is a different India from the busy cities. A walk thru the village with the hotel manager, Nitin, is an enriching experience. The women with their colorful saris, the turbaned men and the happy children make you... More

After doing the cities of Rajasthan we were longing for a bit of rural peace and Ravla Khempur did not disappoint. It's a beautiful place to hang out - the courtyard is magical but what makes it so special are the staff. You feel really at home there and the food is great. But what is unique about it is... More

Great hospitality in this charming hotel. We visited because of the film but found it to a delightful stay in its own right. One night was definitely not enough. Just sit in the open courtyard and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The room was spacious and clean with a large ensuite and dinner was served outside in true style. A fantastic... More

When I found out that we would have an opportunity to stay at Ravla Khempur I jumped at it, as I had liked the Marigold movie very much. The hotel is about an hour's drive away from Udaipur and only recently re-opened after renovations following the filming of the Marigold sequel. There is still a lot of work to be... More

Our favourite experience in India. As mentioned the manager Nitin is a legend. We got the village tour, a once in a lifetime experience, visiting the local school, peoples houses and even playing cricket with the local kids. Nitin is very passionate about the village and has its best interests at heart. The hotel itself is a classic, it is... More

Work in progress, dusty, quirky... Even better than the film! As part of a 2 week Exotic Marigold Hotel Film tour organised by http://www.mysticindia.co.uk/, we stayed here at Diwali 2014 and loved it! What made it a very special stay was not just being shown secrets of the film location, but the warm welcome by Nitin, his staff and the... More

We decided to visit on route from Bundi to Udaipur. It was 8pm and all was dark as there was a wedding in the village and they had invited all the guests from the hotel. You could see that staying in this remote village about 50 mins from Udaipur meant you were seeing the realindia and completely emerged in village... More
