The place looks amazing from outside, and when you are in, rooms looks really good and different, you feel you are living in 50 years ago.
The dinner serves on the roof, which again looks great.
We have been welcomed warmly to the hotel.
The jeep safari to local villages was very good.
Hotel has its temple inside.
We enjoyed breakfast as well. While the options for dinner, wasn't that wide.
The disappointment was the entertainment in the evening, it started more than half an hour late, and it was way bellow our expectation, I don't recommend it at all.
But other stuff in the hotel, all great.

This for sure has been one of our best stays in India. We opted Deogarh Mahal as an option to avoid crowd and regular places where often everyone tend to visit during Diwali or longer holiday periods. While surfing through many options we zeroed onto this option and were very happy to have chosen it.
The palace offers supreme level of service, excellent feel of a stay at palace and top it with bare minimal interactions with other visitors or staff of the property. This heritage property is very well maintained and reminds us of a great history behind it. The owners of this property have not commercialized it and have still been able to have footfalls of regular foreign clients along with Indian visitors. The owners have ensured they maintain the class and legacy of the property rather.
The property provides more than comfortable stay in classy palace. you get all your basic requirements fulfilled i.e. tea maker in room, hot water facility, excellent beds, clean and maintained rooms and to top it we also had privilege to access a huge terrace overlooking the village of Deogarh and hills of Aravalli.
The overall service at the property was classy and all the staff were too good to ensure you have the best stays of your life. The food at their restaurant was very well made home cooked food. The food menu was never repetitive and each item would taste better than the other item. We were lucky to be binged to typical Rajasthani delicacies. Extremely tasty and delightful (better than quite a lot of regular restaurants / hotels). A Special mention about a surprise candle lit dinner organised by the staff on the open terrace of the property, that was the icing on the cake of this beautiful stay.
The property is a must visit if you are looking forward to peaceful stay without much of activities and enjoy laidback life at the property. you can access well maintained swimming pool / spa as well.
We also got an opportunity to travel on historic meter gauge rail route from Khambli Ghat to Phulad. A must do activity on your visit to this place, the rail journey passes through hilly terrain of Aravalli to pass by forest area and couple of tunnels. It stops at a place close to Phulad wherein the monkeys wait for the train to stop so as to get hands on food given by passengers on board the train, quite a scene.
Overall holidays spent well with our own self with best of service and excellent food. You get to live a life of a King or Queen for once in your life, relish it!

It was interesting to compare this hotel with the other converted palace that we stayed at.

With this one we parked at the lake before being picked up by the ‘frog’ transport (under the sign that said ‘Parking reserved for frog, otherwise toad’ - there is definitely a British. Sense of humour at work here). From here we made our way through the bustling streets of the town, slowly. We reached the hotel, were greeted by a shower of petals and a drink.

All of the rooms are different and really are converted palace rooms. We again had a series of rooms; an entrance lounge, a large bedroom and a huge bathroom in a turret. The floor was unpolished tiles, it took 3-5 minutes for hot water to work it’s way through and our safe was actually a large, wooden box that wasn’t connected to anything.
What was more curious was the fact that you need to leave your key outside of the room, in a slot, in order turn the lights on.

As far as ACCESS is concerned there are plenty of stairs to navigate but there is a Stannah Lift (if required) to the first floor to give access to the first floor rooms and the a la carte restaurant.

Monkeys play on the roof, there is a great view of the lake from there and finding your way through to the dining/breakfast room is an experience.

There are shops in the hotel (although we didn’t have time to visit them) and again there were further signs of British humour with signs like ‘Duck or grouse’ and ‘Overtakers should beware of undertakers’.

The food was pretty good here as well.

Our 1st trip to Udaipur was breathtaking and having spent 2 days there we took a road trip to Deogarh which is situated around 130 kms from Udaipur. We stayed in the Deogarh Mahal which is around 350 years old. It took us back in time and 2 night stay at the palace was Royal. We were put up at the Luxury suite & it was breathtaking. We were pampered and looked after with Royalty. The management arranged a candle light dinner on my wife’s birthday which was a wonderful gesture and a real surprise right on the rooftop. The food was superb where we were served authentic food of the region. The Palak halwa was surprisingly delicious. The palace consists of around 60 rooms which we were informed was buzzing with foreigners till the pandemic wiped out the livelihood of the artisans of many such quaint places. Time has stood still all these years and everything has been preserved like in the past. The owner Mr. Veerabhadra Singh who is the 16th generation of succession took us around the palace as well as the village & patiently explained the the history of the region.

Our sincere thanks to everyone in the Mahal who looked after us right royally. A special compliment to the chef whose food was really special. A most memorable experience. I request all my fellow Indians to try the experience.
Thank you 🙏

This place is special - the Deogarh Mahal is basically a beautiful palace that offers a spectacular rooftop terrace with amazing views. We got upgrade to a suite and this was simply the biggest and also best room we had during our whole stay in India. There was a fixed (non-veg) meal offered to us for dinner and the food was very, very good, as was the breakfast. Service was also very good. We had only booked one night in this hotel and wish we could have stayed longer. So while this is not a cheap accomondation, we felt it is totally worth the money. We highly recommend.

Deogarh Mahal is a very special experience. A palace build in 1670 comes with its own character and issues. It is still owned by the descendants of the Royal line of Rawats, the Rawat and Rani Saheb of Devgarh ; basically you are their guests. We had stayed here exactly 20 years ago with our young children and were happy and privileged to again meet the Rawat personally.
Expect no modern luxury such as TV, although there is a fridge and the Wifi is good. Our suite 260 was enormous, basically 3 large rooms (bedroom, sitting area and bathroom), all part of the original "zenana" or women quarters. Dinner is set menu with vegetable stew and chicken. The second night we had an exclusive "Romantic Dinner on the Mahal Rooftop", where a personal waiter serves you delicious thali while you watch the village underneath - a truly memorable experience.
Breakfast is very Indian, but has egg station, fresh juice and nice curd.
The hotel provides other activities such as a village walk, picknick by jeep and train ride.
As I said, Deogarh Mahal is not your average hotel, so go with different expectations - and you will be delighted.

This palace was beautiful and we did not mind at all some of the quirks that other people objected to. We had a wonderful suite and it was clean and cared for. It was not "refurbished to modern standards" but why would we want that in such an historic place. The decor feels right. There was plenty of hot water in due course . All the staff talked to us and were helpful and informative. Dinner on the roof terrace was special. We went into the village and felt safe and welcomed. There is a scenic train ride not far away which was a good expeience.We stayed two nights and would have enjoyed a third. We were invited to tea by the Maharajah and his wife at their lakeside house and we thank them for this and will always remember it.

This is the perfect place to see the real India. The Palace is wonderful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Most have some English , if they don’t understand they will find someone who does. The family are very involved with the hotel and the daughter has a very nice boutique shop in the grounds. It is well worth spending a few days here, the staff can arrange a car to the wonderful Kumbulgar Fort which has the second longest wall outside China, why not combine it with a trip to the famous Jain temple at Ranakpur. A really lovely day out ,you can also take the local train, built by the British in the 1800s for a very scenic two hour tour of the surrounding area.
The small town of Deogarh is delightful and very safe. The shop keepers are very friendly and not especially pushy...
After a stroll around the town there is a lovely walk by the lake and there you will find the second boutique shop belonging to the daughter..
This area is also famous for its miniature art, great art shop in the grounds.

An very impressive castle. We had a huge long bedroom with comfy beds , an enormous bathroom with 2 sinks and walk in shower, as well as a vast sitting area.
You can visit the private rooms of the property and go right up onto the roof and the views are breathtaking.
We had dinners on the terrace and the food was excellent. Breakfast served in the restaurant was also very fine and the staff couldn't have been more helpful &attentive. The only problem there are a lot of stone steps everywhere, luckily a lift reaches the restaurant and 1st terrace but on our 2nd dinner as it was on a higher terrace I couldn't get there. Again the staff did there utmost by setting a table on the lower terrace. Thanks again. A great stay.

We enjoyed our visit and would certainly stay there again. We also had a yoga class at sunrise--once on the roof and once by the lake. Great experience. Interesting and lovely place. Helpful service. Didn't understand your question.
