Dev Shree Deogarh
What we love: the gracious and fun family hospitality.
When Shatrunjai and Bhavna decided to return to their roots and design this stunning family home, they took inspiration from the local Mewar architecture and employed local craftsmen to create an extraordinary home. They opened their doors to guests in 2015. Built of Nimbahera stone, craftsmen worked on the pieces of stone for over 2 years creating intricately carved pillars which support the wide verandah overlooking the Ragho Sagar Lake. The central courtyard open to the sky has a Moroccan feel. With marble floors, terraces, courtyards and comfy sitting rooms and a huge roof terrace ideal for yoga at dawn and sunset they have created something very special. Sweeping lawns and fragrant flower beds add to the peace and tranquility. The family will welcome you with open arms and are charming hosts.
The 8 spacious and luxurious suites with lovely bathrooms either open on to a terrace or have views over the beautiful gardens. The vibrant colours of Rajasthan are used to good effect. There is a stunning swimming pool situated near the shore of the lake. Meals are served in the dining room or on the verandah or somewhere in the gardens – al fresco dining is a speciality here. Chefs like to discuss menus for the day with the guests and private dining is always available.
The family will delight in showing you around the local area by car, on foot and bicycles are available and picnics can be arranged.
