Dev Shree Deogarh guarantees a serene experience that leaves you awestruck and rejuvenated

Dev Shree was created by Shatrunjal and Bhavna of Deogarh Mahal fame who consulted their Guru and suggested they return to Deogarh and construct Dev Shree, which means ‘Our Home’.

The construction of Dev Shree Deogarh showcased the wonderful architectural styles of the local area, complete with intricately hand-carved pillars, breezy veranda’s, marble floors and an amazing roof terrace. It gives such a nod to the past, but wonderfully embraces the present with the most comfortable of beds and cascading showers.
Detail and hospitality is all around you, from the use of lovely bespoke cutlery, perfectly laid table settings or the use of homemade marmalades or Fortnum and Mason biscuits! The food is wonderful, using fresh produce as much as possible as well as making use of the local dairy next door. Old family recipes are rekindled, as well as offering a selection of western dishes ensuring what is served appeals to all palettes.
It’s all about the slow life at Dev Shree, such as taking a walk in the countryside before having a picnic by the lake, taking a local steam train through the hills or heading up to nearby Gokul Fort for a sundowner. You just get to glimpse into this timeless corner of India in such a remarkable way. Shatrunjal and Bhavna are full of stories about this part of India and it is almost an honour to stay in their home and experience it all. In short, highly recommended!

What sort of accommodation is available at Dev Shree Deogarh?

There are eight suites in total, each impeccably designed reflecting the local Rajput architecture. Airy and spacious (and air-conditioned), the décor is simple but contemporary – whitewashed walls, marble floors, traditional textiles and pops of colour from stained-glass windows, and all have views over the vibrant flower gardens.
Five of the suites boast king-size beds, while the others have twin beds – especially suitable for families.
The private bathrooms are almost as big as the rooms and feature walk-in showers and double basins.
There has also been the recent addition of a salt water pool nestled amongst the palm groves on the property, offering you an ideal relaxing oasis.
Whilst staying at the Dev Shree you are encouraged to explore the surroundings. Take part in activities such as walks through the local villages, culinary workshops, yoga classes, bird-watching and visits to the closely located historical sites.

When is the best time to visit Dev Shree Deogarh?
December to March is the perfect time to visit Rajasthan and the North when rainfall is minimal and temperatures are pleasant during the day. It can get cold at night, so make sure to pack a few extra layers when visiting at this time. Summer starts mid-March and can get very hot getting into May and June. The monsoon period follows directly after from July to September, where humidity is high and the region receives the majority of its rainfall, although still very minimal amounts. The months of October and November after the monsoon season are also a great time to visit the region as it experiences warm and dry weather during the day with cooler temperatures at night.
