We have just finished a fours day tiger safari in Ranthambore. We stayed at Dev Vilas and enjoyed it very much. The property is beautiful with marble and the look of a place. The food was excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms could do with a serious upgrade. Failing air conditioners for one and the bedding... More

Hotel has feeling of a hunting house. The rooms are clean, spacious, comfortable and provided a good night sleep. Hotel operates on full board basis. Food choices were generally limited but what they offered was good. We came to this hotel for 2-night stay during the second week of our month long India tour with fewer and cold. Our requests...

This hotel is on 2 levels around a grassed quadrangle. It has a delightful pool area. It is quite small and the dining room is rather like a large family dining room, with restricted, though perfectly adequate choice. It is isolated, so once you're back, you're back. The rooms are enormous and all different. We had a large seating area... More

We have previously visited Southern India, but this time my husband and I were visiting The Golden Triangle and Ranthambore. We have stayed in many hotels, mostly big chain hotels which are a bit impersonal and clinical. On the contrary, Dev Vilas had charm and character. It had a colonial feel, built in the style of an old hunting lodge.... More

A pip of the horn by Mr Ram and the gates of the Del Villas hotel swung open. We had arrived four hours after leaving Shahpura. A lovely pink building greeted us and we were soon shown to our room which turned out to be a Suite. Thanks again to those nice people at Trinetra Tours who had delivered once... More

We absolutely loved this hotel until a group of workmen arrived and started ripping out the hedge around the pool and clearing a piece of land behind it with a bulldozer in preparation for the construction of a new recreation centre! Up until then, we had enjoyed the serenity of this wonderful place....a welcome respite after a couple of busy... More

We arrived as part of a Collette tour at Dev Vilas just after lunch and our tour guide announced that not everyone would get a standard room. He asked for 7 volunteers to take the tents behind the hotel by the pool. Since I'm always ready for a bit of adventure, I volunteered and was delighted with my somewhat unusual... More

This place has a touch of the old world. Quiet location and good service, particurlarly in the dining room. In the cold weather it was lovely to have the beds warmed up by ho water bottle before going to bed. The pool looked nice and clean but not tempting with night temperatur close to freezing.

We booked Dev Vilas hotel during our visit to Ranthambhore National Park. Dev Vilas is a great place to stay while you are in Ranthambhore, Sawai Madhopur. The Hotel is designed elegantly, impeccable details, fantastic wall paintings, clean and spacious rooms and above all excellent food. Price-wise Dev Vilas is an excellent option and is on par with the best-class... More

Massive rooms, friendly service, super fast wifi (200 INR per day, great value) Genuine indian cuisine with western altenative dishes. Short trip from railway station and very close to various gates for the park.Stayed in December 2014 and after dinner the fire pits were lit and there was live music entertainment, a good bonus. Highly recommend this place.
