“Luxury exemplified”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

What a lovely hotel !
Beautiful serene property with dozens of peacocks strutting around, many nice trees and flowers and the sound of birds chirping in the morning.
The swimming pool is simply gorgeous.
The rooms are luxurious and comfortable.
The service is of course impeccable.

We loved our two night stay.

We stayed in many Oberoi hotels throughout India with our Tauck tour. They all were mind boggling gorgeous. The food and service were also incredible. What an experience. India is beyond fascinating but it can be hard and intense. Having the Oberoi hotels to come back to was a dose of heaven at the end of the day.

Welcoming Airport transfer with chauffers in Rajasthani turbans. They gave us cold towels in the car, followed by mineral water and the ride was made pleasant by playing classical Rajasthani Music. The hotel was happy to send 2 cars (CRV Honda) since we informed them that we had too many bags.
Drivers were very welcoming
In the Hotel Entrance - Welcome was with Sandalwood Tilak , followed by Nimboo Paani.
Check in at room and very efficient
Ubiquitous Namaste with folded hands ‘makes your day and puts a smile on one’s face’
Rooms were amazing , marble sunken baths spacious, the small patio next to bath gave sense of space
The Concierge team acts like a Guest's personal assistant and they made all our bookings and arrangements flawlessly.
The flower arrangements are gorgeous – and all over the property. Especially the ones in large water pots with flowers systmenatically arrange to float in the water.
Complementary Innovative tit bits , sweets , bakes in room everyday. These are different in children’s room.
Our children loved Kite Flying and Horse Chariot ride on Raju the horse with Nasir. The children’s treasure hunt was wonderful and handled right from picking up children in a Golf Club Car from our room till to the finish of the activity, with water bottles and good care for children. The team even let my children have some clues as souvenirs, not supposed to be given away making the experience even more delightful for them.
Personal attention , meticulous detailing and a superb service standard make it an unforgettable experience . You really feel pampered. Every staff member behaves like a team and will do anything for you. Restaurant team members even do Concierge type of work to plan your day while you are munching breakfast.
The Gymnasium in the Spa is just ok, service is good. But it overlooks a not so well maintained garden and fountains, with paint peeling off and a bit neglected.

Room Tip: Reeally all rooms are good. The suites are superlative and for couples staying in a tent room would...

we were there in June'12, and the temperature was between 42-45C ... and yet the property was so green ... the sprinklers always on, it just made the place a literal oasis in the desert. if you can get out early enough to beat the heat, the property has a fabulous jogging track which goes all around the water bodies and the periphery.

Room Tip: the luxury tents are wonderful. Huge areas, wonderful bathrooms, and nice sit-out running all around...

This was our second time staying at this property. Last we stayed was 9 years ago. Everything we had experienced last time was the same if not more. The service we received from being picked up at the airport to our last day at the resort was truly impeccable. The service from front office to restaurant staff was truly amazing. When we passed the groundskeepers, even they would stop doing what they were doing to greet us. That is service. One night we were tired from all the sightseeing we had done and decided to have a light dinner. The next thing we knew, we were talking to the the chef and asking us if something was wrong with food. He also suggested that he could make anything we want even if it is not on the menu. Once again that is taking care of your guests. Thank you for making our stay memorable, second time around.

Room Tip: Stay at one of the tents. It is truly an amazing experience. Our kids really enjoyed it.
