6 of us visited, we had 2 safari tents and 1 cottage. All superb, particularly the nice early morning tea/coffee room delivery pre safari-ing. Great food, service, and friendly. Really loved this place and in a very peaceful location. Not that near the park entrances so prob a bit more time used up in driving to and from entrances for... More

Khem Villas is sublime. An extraordinarily beautiful place set on the edge of Ranthambore National Park, surrounded by cool ponds, natural landscape and fields of organic vegetables, salads and fruits which are served in the restaurant. The accommodation is made up of thatched cottages with candle lit outdoor bathrooms, and tents of the glamping kind! Utterly divine. The soft furnishings... More

My wife and I stayed two nights here and were upgraded to Cottage 5. We were very excited about possibly seeing a tiger, but to find that the accommodation was so far above our expectations was wonderful. The food is delicious and the staff were all so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. A big plus is an a/c room... More

This was the 3rd hotel on our trip and we stayed for 3 nights in 9 - 12 March 2014 This is a small hotel which is located outside of Ranthambore. This means that the hotel is convenient for routes 1- 5 as it is about 5-10 minutes from the main gate whilst it is about 30-40 minutes away from... More

This is a rare gem run by helpful folks who are also using their money to improve education and health services in their country as well as having been in the forefront of establishing large areas set aside as tiger reserves. It's located just outside of the Ranthambore NP reserve. It's a small well kept modern facility with charming and... More

Very very nice for relaxation. Luxury tents have no shade so mid morning to late afternoon they are too hot to occupy. Also can't read after dark because light attracts many bugs. Good common areas though. Safari is the worst. Park is devided into 10 sections. You rent a jeep to take you in. The park assigns randomly which section... More

We stayed in cottage 8 which has good views of the pond and fields. All a bit impersonal. Room nice but small. Outside room area lovely. Food variable. Hot water only at certain times of day which was nuisance. WiFi only in common areas. Safaris to ranthambore poor- totally unprofessional in crowded jeep we paid extra for rather than have... More
