As we approached Devi Ratn we thought it couldn’t possibly be the right place as, from a distance, it looks rather industrial. We had booked on impulse by telephone (without research) as we were fleeing another hotel so it really was a surprise. We had picked it due to a wonderful stay at its sister hotel - the sublime Devi Garh - a few years ago.
The initial impression is of a rather spartan factory unit or secret government research facility. The entrance lobby warms things up a bit and firmly establishes this hotel as one making a very, very strong architectural statement with a fantastical long and red reception area and super funky decor.
As the buildings are so new – still not fully open in October – the rather harsh lines haven’t yet been softened by the planting. Once vegetation is established I think it will feel much warmer and more welcoming. I think too that the hotel may wish to give their contractor a very, very long snagging list as the quality of build is poor – we started a list and gave up!
When settled however the potential of this hotel became obvious. Within half an hour of the madness of Jaipur it offers an oasis of peace and calm. The restaurant was one of the best we experienced in India and the service absolutely charming. We had a super balcony area and sat with a drink well into the night listening to the temple chants in the distance (it was the night before Diwali). Magical.
It is definitely different, in a good way, and an excellent option as a base for Jaipur.
