Deogarh Mahal, Rajasthan
Deogarh Mahal is a converted royal palace which has been designated as a Luxury Heritage Hotel. The Deogarh royal family still reside in one of the wings and personally supervise the running of the hotel; every guest is welcomed with customary Mewari hospitality.
There are 50 ensuite rooms (22 deluxe rooms, on which the World Discovery prices are based, 23 Deluxe Suites, 2 Studio Suites and 3 Royal Suites). Each room has modern amenities but has been designed to retain the old architectural style of the building, which dates from the late 17th century.
Food (typical Mewari cuisine) is of a high quality and features home-grown fruits and vegetables, and in-house milk products and oils. The hotel also offers delicious seasonal jams, and juices made from fruits grown around the palace. Orange marmalade, plum, and mixed fruit are some of the seasonal jams also available for sale.
Gala evenings, featuring folk music and dance are also organised.
