    Peaceful location, iconic hotel and wonderful owner, manager and staff.
    on Nov 26, 2017
    We have been travelling India for a few weeks and whilst staying in Udaipur discovered that this gem of a hotel was only 90 minutes away so we quickly added a 1 night stay to our itinerary. We wish we could have stayed longer! Its such a peaceful oasis in rural Rajasthan and being big fans of both Excotic Marigold films we loved it. What made it so special though was the welcome from Hemant (owner), Nitin (manager) and the staff. From the moment we arrived we were treated as long lost friends and were looked after so well. It felt like a home from home. Our dinner in the evening was absolutely delicious - real home cooked food with local dishes. Some of the best food we’ve tasted on our 2 month tour of India so far. We also got to watch the first film in the restaurant which was surreal as you could figure out where each of the hotel scenes was filmed. Our room was very lovely. They describe the accommodation as basic but for us, having stayed in some interesting places in the previous few weeks, we feel that this was much higher quality. The bed was big and very comfy, the bedding was very clean and the bathroom very clean. They take pride in making sure the guests feel as comfortable as possible. Best of all -it’s so peaceful! If you’re fans of the films we can’t recommend this place enough. We will defitnitley back on future trips to India and look forward to spending time in this peaceful oasis and with the wonderful team at Ravla Khempur.... More

    Ravla Khempur Exotic Marigold Hotel
    on Nov 13, 2017
    We were lucky to visit the Exotic Marigold Hotel. Please note it is not at Jaipur where all the filming took place. We explored the hotel and had a fabulous time taking photos and having a delicious lunch. There are stables where there are beautiful horses to look at. Of course we watched the Exotic Marigold Hotel movie as we had our lunch and all related to all that had happened to us in Jaipur, especially the traffic, bikes etc. We met the owner and his son, Hemant Deval who are really nice people and they welcomed us. What a wonderful memory we will always have. We did have a tour guide and this made our experience so much better. Thank you so much. Check with tour guide if you can visit this hotel or go direct to Ravla Khempur... More

    Fantastic, Hospitable Staff
    on Nov 12, 2017
    Dear Nitin and the rest of the team at the hotel, We were at the hotel during the Wonderflip Festival and you guys should take a bow. I am sure it wouldn't have been easy to manage with so many people in your quiet property but EVERY request of ours was tended to and followed up on. You and your team were always ready to help and smiling inspite of what I'm sure was a stressful time. Wish you all the very best and thank you for a great time.... More

    absolutely magical , beautifull, serene , healing
    on Nov 10, 2017
    I stayed almost a week with my husband , and a friend in this old (400 years ) traditional Estate of the friendly landlord Hemant Khempur when we came we were not feeling too well (fever and all sorts of ailments ) after a tiring journey through some of the most polluted cities in the world ( a.o. Delhi) and we were desperately longing for authentic Indian and aching for quite and peacefull and natural and fragrant fresh smells of nature instead of polluted air thick with smoke instead of manipulative unreal smiles and words of money&performance driven staff and unresponsive management, we yearned for true communications with real people who actually listen and respond to us as humans instead of performing some sort of clownesc act learned in businesschool , giving answers to questions we did not ask and giving services not wanted , not answering the questions asked and not giving what we needed, we were sick and tired of the modern India, it changed for the worse in just 6 years ! Sick with fever I googled in my freezing hotel room (airconditioning can be a horror even turned off after tree days in the Park hotel in Delhi) and then God made me find this Pearl , untouched by modern "Life" (Hell actually, Death) Ravla Khempur, by Australians better known as the home for the Elderly and Beautiful from the 2010 movie: The Best Marigold Hotel God knows why specifically Australians, but every day interested Aussies passed us by to meet with this magical place and its staff, known to them as the Best Marigold Hotel , but not known as a place to actually sleep and eat the food is very good by the way, so was the wine and the cook went out of his way to give us what we liked the movie with big famous stars like the old Mrs.Moneypenny (Judy Dench) and the English top actress Maggie Smith and Hollywoods Richard Gere, used the building and its terrain and in its sequel Ravla Khempur starred again, the movie stars stayed in the rooms , only ten rooms they have by the way , and that gives an extra magical touch to this place antique and authentic, the staff truly friendly, we only met real people and no robots , they truly cared and received our requests openly and willing to meet our needs , like being in a human family , from the manager to the cleaning boys , we came to love them, and they loved us a beautifull almost royal place, never changed, with its own still in use temple from which we enjoyed twice a day the bell 🔔 and the old drum touched with wooden sticks, to scare all the ugly and nasty away , i listened mesmerized with gorgeous spacious rooms , fresh, cool , quiet, I felt an Indian princess in my bed and out of it , every day we walked three times to the dining hall, passing the temple , greeting the many parrots , the swimming pool, and last in this review but actually First in Reality: the beautiful Marwari horses 🐴 the owner has as his passion the all and only Indian beautiful sensitive Marwari horses of Rajasthan, they have ears formed like the moonsickle 🌙 and every animal and horse lover like myself can easily communicate with them, the Stallion is superb , a Soul like mine he has ❤️ quite and peacefull this Estate stil stands , watching over the villages nearby, the fresco"s on the walls faded but still recognizable as the old scenery of the rich and elegant ladies perhaps a century ago still, sitting in their Sedan chairs carried by their servants in real time, now, October 2017, we saw on the way to and from this Estate that is 45 minutes from the Airport in Udaipur, traditionally dressed men and woman , even a herd of camels passed us by on the day we left and with the big beautifull friendly dog Debang (fearless it means) the parrots and peacocks , the serving dinner staff , the stories of the owner , the fragrance of flowers for the entrance, the brisk morning breeze, the roof terrace we sat and drank Masala Chai and took a nap during the days, cool smartly built against the Rajasthan heat in summer with a nice view over the estate, I had absolutely no thought or wish of leaving, not even for an hour, in fact I joked to stay as Hemant's first real long stay guest in this top hotel that is not a hotel , we were esteemed guests I wish for every traveller and lover of original and authentic to have this experience of Rajasthani paradise on earth ...

    The film is only part of its charm
    on Nov 3, 2017
    We spent our first two nights in India in this relaxed, charming place. The building is stunning and though they claim to ‘keep it simple’, the beds are comfy and the water is hot. They breed horses here too - one is in the restaurant (its stable is behind the glass.)They serve simple food washed down with your choice of wine, beer or gin. A highlight was a walk around the local village with Mohan who gets my vote for deputy manager. We got to meet the families and see how they live (we were asked not to give money) yet everyone was very friendly and wanted photos with us. If you like formality, rigidity and endless signatures for your beer give it a miss. If you want to relax and see the real rural India then add the Ravla Kempur to your list. ... More
