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.).

We stayed for 2 nights at Dev Vilas and were treated to some delicious buffet food during our stay. I particularly liked the fresh Naan bread brought out to us at regular intervals during our meals. The staff were very friendly and the room was spacious and comfortable. We made good use of the pool during our stay and there... More

Had an excellent stay at Dev Villas. Went with my Mum, 13-year old Nephew, and 6-year old niece. All of us loved the place. The staff are fantastic - efficient and effective. They loved the food - which is tough to do as they are fussy eaters. The property is quiet and very well maintained. They create an excellent atmosphere... More

We arrived at Dev Vilas after a long day travelling and were immediately booked in and shown to our very spacious rooms. TWO bathrooms and most important an electric heater as the temperature had fallen quite significantly. The manager, who we were told by other guests, had the nickname of "The Maharajah" was superb, he could not do enough for... More

Stayed here with a group early Feb. Very disappointed. The ground were not appealing. The rooms are large, "heated" with a space heater. Rug in room dirty.. Towels in room were damp. The food was OK and the help was nice Lobby furniture needs upgrade. Can't imagine how it could get any awards.

This hotel is only a few minutes from the gate to Ranthambore Park. It's a bit run down but has a warm welcome and attentive staff. They are geared up for game drives, with tea and blankets at the ready for those early starts. Food was ok, rooms huge and gardens nice but the best was the peace and the... More
