We stayed here last Noveber for 3 nights as part of our tour round India for our honeymoon. The rooms are huge and very comfortable and the whole place, including the outdoor pool, was very clean too. The food is homecooked and very traditional and tasty. The staff were attentive right from the second we walked through the door and... More

A delightful and peaceful oasis close to the entrance to Ranthambhore NP. Our first night we were the only guests and after a long tiring journey we were royally spoilt as we arrived and shown to our spacious room to freshen up. The King sized bed was very comfortable and there were 2 bathrooms as well as minibar and tea... More

My stay at Dev vilas was awesome. The hospitality was great and the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The food there was just mouth watering. There were also three playful great daines in the hotel. If you want to enjoy RANTHAMBORE then you must stay at Dev vilas. You won't regret it.

Dev Vilas was our abode for the 2 nights and 3 days we spent in Ranthambore. A 5 minute drive away from Ranthambore National Park, the location couldn't be better. Our Suite was generously spacious with a comfortable bed and furniture. A special treat is 2 bathrooms in each room, something i haven't seen in any hotel that I have... More

Our family had adjacent rooms on the second floor of Dev Vilas for two nights while we visited Ranthamhbore National Park. The rooms were wonderfully spacious and comfortably furnished with a King size bed in one room and two double beds in the second room, a sitting area, entertainment center with cable TV and a small refrigerator . The bathroom... More

English is not my first language so I am afraid that I do not have the correct words to describe Dev Vilas: it is 9 kilometres out of Sawai Madhopour and then stil about 1 kilometre from the main road......it is quiet: you can hear the peacocks, the monkeys jumping in the trees and at night, the night birds and...

This hotel is the closest to Ranthambore Park. The staff is polite and attentive but not very well trained or experienced. The food is home style/country style and is decent. The rooms are large and have a separate full bath and a 1/2 bath. The unfortunate part is that the sink drains are just plastic flex tubes that run from... More

With Thakur Balendu Singh as host in Dev-Vilas, you are guaranteed to see a Tiger on each of your drives inside the Park. Tastefully done rooms, cleverly having 2 toilets per room, to assist in quick getting ready for the early morning safari, shows Balendu's experience in handling the Western traveller in India..(More than 30 years in the trade.).
