This was our first visit to India and we were not sure what to expect, but from the moment we arrived at the Devraj Niwas we were made to feel at home. The hotel, which lives up to its name of "well planted" with thousands of trees and plants, centres around the outdoor cocktail bar radiating out into the restaurant area with comfortable seating and covered lounges. At night with the candles lit it takes on a magical quality.
The rooms are situated around the perimeter, are single storey and unoverlooked by their neighbours. Our room was well appointed, spotlessly clean, with a comfortable bed and superior bedding. The spacious bathroom was equipped with an efficient shower with piping hot water. A bonus was the private, shaded terrace where we enjoyed watching the chipmunks playing amongst the plants. We also enjoyed relaxing in the pool area of the beautiful gardens.
We ate at the restaurant most evenings, the menu was extensive and the food and service were excellent, as was the local red wine. There is also a comfortable indoor restaurant should the weather have been inclement.
Staff went out of their way to look after us during our almost two week stay , from ordering taxis, offering advice, keeping our room pristine, feeding us, carrying baggage and maintaining the gardens in immaculate condition.
This may have been our first visit to India, but we certainly hope to return to the Devraj Nivas before too long.
