Devigarh Hotels and Travel Guide

Devigarh is the perfect romantic getaway in the desert land of Rajasthan . Devi Garh is about 28 km away from Udaipur and 5 km from Eklinji in southern Rajasthan. Tucked away in the age-old Aravali hills of Rajasthan, the 18th century Devi Garh Fort Palace , in the village of Delwara commands one of the three main passes into the valley of Udaipur . Devi Garh stands, quite literally, in two worlds: the traditional and the modern. Its ambience is an eclectic mix of skillfully crafted designs, both old and new, functional and purely aesthetic. Local materials like marble and semi-precious stones have been used in contemporary designs to create an elegant beauty. Personalized service complemented by a wide range of modern facilities goes towards making Devi Garh a comfortable and attractive retreat.
