We loved staying at Ravla Khempur hotel. The rooms are charming, with large window seats with mattresses and enough room to sleep, looking out to their own temple. Peacocks roam the grounds making noisy calls in the mornings and evenings, and parrots sit on the balconies. We were the only guests and our kind host, Nitin, took us on a... More

I took a group of 8 over to stay in Ravla Khempur and it was perfect! Everything was arranged easily and promptly by email before our trip, Nitin is a very friendly helpful manager and nothing was too much trouble, even from 8 demanding women! Haha... The hotel is picture perfect from the Marigold film, the rooms lovely and authentic... More

A visit to Ravla Khempur aka The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a visit to remember! The amazing General Manager Nitin and his team ensure you will see rural Indian life in a village that is full of life and character! Not the big tourist sights of India but the raw untouched magic of staying at such an iconic hotel... More

I was thrilled at the prospect of staying in the real best exotic marigold hotel as part of a tour around North India. The villagers are welcoming and friendly, as is the hotel and staff. While I wasn't expecting 5*, I think its fair to say that there are lots of improvements to be made. The place was quite messy,... More

My Mum and I recently spent some time in this beautiful establishment. Although we originally went because of "The best Exotic Marigold Hotel" we came away with so much more. A truly magnificent horse stud built in 1608. Great Gambler is absolutely superb. He is the biggest, fastest, best Marwari (horse breed) in India. We would go back at the... More

We found it, the real Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. And what we found was one of the most beautiful places we ever where in India. The Ravla Khempur has the charm of pure exotic. We had the feeling to be in a dream. The hotel was very clean and we could choose a room as we wanted. We had a... More

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel film(s) were the real motivation behind our decision to visit India this year. Today we arrived at the hotel located in Ravla Khempur, just a half hour drive or so from Udaipur. I must say it lived up to our expectations and then some. The hotel and it's courtyard and the public rooms were instantly... More

Having read about the possibility of visiting the hotel 'in the flesh' we decided to visit on our way between Jaipur and Udaipur, and it turned out to be one of the huge highlights of our trip. We felt honoured to have been able to experience the hotel and the seemingly unspoilt village at the side of it. We were... More

We spent 2 nights at Ravla Khempur, during this time we celebrated Holi within the village (Holi celebrations in an India village is much better than celebrating in a city!). Our 2 nights in the village was the highlight of our trip-I think this is where I fell in love with India. Nitin and all the staff did everything they... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Now reopened with Resaalaa Restaurant. Ravla Khempur used as The BestExotic Marigold Hotel,a british movie. The title ‘Ravla’ in Rajasthan refers to the home of a village chieftain”. In earlier days, the Ravla was the focal point of the entire village. Functions such as village welfare, collection of taxes, administration of law and order, and the initiation of festivals took place in the Ravla. Ravla Khempur exudes historical ambience and is graced with breathtaking surroundings. The lofty terraces, open courtyards, sprawling gardens, domes, arches and canopied balconies transport one back in time. Khempur village developed over the centuries to one side of the Ravla. It comprises a small, random and attractive cluster of typical rural dwellings and shops, and shaded squares where the villagers discuss the affairs of the world or share the local gossip. For the visitor, this is a side of India that has its own fascination; the cheerful welcome and natural hospitality of the village folk who ask nothing more than to enjoy a chat over a cup of tea. ... more   less
