Spacious and huge rooms, green lawns, cycles to roam around this whole property. you can spend a laid back day here and you will feel great thats for sure. Food is bad, but thats the case of every property in SawaiMadhopur. Its a heritage property but it still doesnt give a TAJ feeling. Tell us its not Taj and its... More

I think this is the property the Taj Group forgot exists. It is not a Taj Property but a forest guest house (in fact a forest guest house would probably be better) in the guise of a Taj property. Now where do I start ? Everything that can be wrong in a hotel is wrong with this place .......... the... More

In Sawai Madhopur, the only attraction is Ranthambore and the only focus is Safari and repeat Safari till the Tiger sighting is done again. With such a clear focus, the property takes a back seat. But this particular property is not only great (comfortable rooms, huge and well maintained lawns, good food) but is also inviting. The hotel staff go... More

The grounds of this hotel are stunning and you can see some lovely birds during your stay. Unfortunately our stay was not a pleasant one. We arrived at gone three o'clock to be told our room wasn't ready. When we were shown to it there were pubic hairs in the bath. I complained to our tour guide who arranged for... More

Stayed at Vivanta with my family for 3 nights and we had booked 2 suites with a sit out attached to the rooms. Overall our stay was extremely comfortable and enjoyable but I am giving it a 4 star instead of 5 only coz of the food. Service - The best factor about the hotel. The quality of service reflected...

Felt like we stepped back in time at this lodge, once a hunting lodge and now a lovely hotel. Rooms around a green lawn, plenty of green outdoor spaces, good food and friendly service. It's not luxurious by some standards, but it was a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of travel in India. Learned much of the history... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel for two nights in mid-April as part of a GRJ “golden triangle tour”. As mentioned by other reviewers the rooms are in blocks surrounding the main building, which houses the dining room, bar, lounges and a snooker/pool room. Our room (No.4) was very large , the strange thing was that the wardrobe was in the... More

We had travelled as a family and must say it is a great hotel. The most outstanding feature was their courteous and hospitable staff. Always eager to help and the best part is they provide service with a smile. I was surprised to see my car being washed without even asking before I checked out. The manager Unnikrishnan is great...

Loved the property. Very well maintained. Food is good, rooms are spacious and the spa is also good though they don't have JIVA. The service is good, staff is very courteous and always ready to help. Loved the idea of exploring the property on cycles :-) . The only thing i will recommend is that they should have room service... More
