Uniquely attractive, so special Staying at Dev Shree was unquestionably the highlight of our 3 week your of Rajasthan. In all aspects it is outstanding. The magic is provided by the social interaction with one's hosts, Bhavna and Shatrunjai. They effortlessly created an atmosphere of staying with close friends in their beautiful country house. Of course the place itself does help. Lovely rooms, wonderful breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the lake (not least the best coffee in India and delicious homemade jams and marmalades), delicious food at all times. The staff are also amazingly hospitable, Mahipal, the manager, Mukesh the barber (amazing wet shave on the terrace in early morning sunshine after a brisk swim) and also a highly accomplished masseur (his mother attends to female guests), Vikram , who made the most delicious breakfast omelettes and squeezed the oranges for fresh juice plus managing all the food, and Vijender, the artist who also took us around the village. Thee are lots of interesting excursions, leopard spotting (we just missed him but the sundowner G&T compensated), the morning walk to the hilltop temple, and walkng around the lake, with an excursion to the ancient hilltop fort, which is part of the family domain. If we could only stay in one place in India it would be here. We stayed for 3 nights, one could easily enjoy a longer stay.
