“Brilliant hotel, staff and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Visited here in November 2012 and what a wonderful experience it was. Lovely grounds, perfect rooms/bathroom and a relaxing atmosphere. They were so welcoming to our baby - the cot was prepared before our arrival, and they even supplied us with a baby bath and toiletries!

Staff were exceptional and so polite. We left some clothes in our room by mistake and they were posted back to us in Mumbai within 2 days! It was a shame we couldn't have stayed for longer. One of the best hotels I've stayed in.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your stay and for your review appreciating the excellent experience you had at The Oberoi Rajvilas.

I am so happy to know that we were able to offer all what you needed for a relaxing getaway.

We are a family friendly resort and looking after the kids is high on priority for us. Special bath amenities and toiletries for infants, baby bathrobes and slippers, toys in the rooms and numerous activities are all endeavors to keep our young guests happy. Thank you so much for appreciating the team's gestures for your child.

I will pass on your comments about the efficient handling of items you had left behind to the Housekeeping Team. They did a great job in sending them to you promptly.

If you are based out of Mumbai, you are a short flight away and I am sure you will plan another holiday with us soon. We all look forward to welcome you back.

Best regards,

Superb propert - the grounds and rooms are a total delight. This is accompanied by superb service, full of little touches and anticipated needs. That is it, in a nutshell. The only possible issue is that it is a bit out of town and you need about 20 minutes to get into town.

We loved our stay at the Oberoi in Jaipur on our recent India trip, we have traveled around the world and stayed at all types of 5-star hotels but the Oberois in India are our favorites, the level of personal service is outstanding. From each of the hotels we stayed in we wanted to take back with us a particular employee, and from the Oberoi Rajvilas that person would be the Chef, Sagar Rawat. When we mentioned to the waiter that our food was great, Sagar came to our table and invited my wife, who loves to cook, for a free class the following afternoon! That night we had for dinner in our room what my wife prepared, under Sagar's direction.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for choosing to stay with Oberoi Hotels on your trip to India and for an amazing review. I am very happy to know that you had great experiences in all the hotels and were impressed with the service standards.

Chef Sagar provided you with the highlight of your stay in Jaipur and created a most beautiful memory to be cherished. I am so proud to be working with fine individuals like him who are great representatives of the Oberoi service philosophy. I am sure some recipes from Sagar's kitchen would be tried at your home and each time that happens you and your wife will think of Rajvilas!

We would love to have you back and I assure you that all the creative minds here will put together some more interesting activities for you to make it another memorable holiday.

Best regards,

Thank you for staying with us and for the wonderful review.

The generous appreciation you have bestowed upon us for the design of the resort and service is very special. I will share your comments with the entire team as they all did a fantastic job in delivering an exceptional experience to you. Everyone will be delighted to receive your feedback.

The lush green gardens at Rajvilas create a beautiful serene ambience which is one of the things our guests love the most about their stay. I am glad that you had the opportunity to enjoy the gardens.

I take this opportunity to mention to you that we are a very child friendly resort. We run a family programme focused at children every year and offer loads of activities like kite flying, kids cooking classes, block printing, treasure hunt, puppet show and horse cart rides etc. to keep the children entertained. Inter-connecting family rooms and babysitting services are also available. The resort is fully equipped to cater to families with children.

We are proud to have a Rajvilas ambassador in you and look forward to welcome you back soon!

A nice Oberoi property with a very good level of food in its restaurant. The service provided was in all areas very good. In general the hotel is located quite far from the city center and the other hotel Taj Rambagh is far better located.

We stayed in the royal tent which is a nice safari experience. A lot of birds are in the surrounding area. The room is nice but the bathroom shower looks not in the best condition. The bath is centrally located in the bathroom but somehow it does not fit there. The royal tent is very spacious but to go to the living house tent you have to leave the bedroom tent.

Nevertheless, we would return to the tents as they have more charm then the other bungalows.

Hotel entrance, lobby area and check-in process are not on the same unique level as in other Oberoi hotels.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking time to review the facilities and services.

I am glad to know that you had an overall good stay and experienced efficient service in all the areas.

The point you have made with regards to our location is well received. But I am sure you will agree that for all who wish to indulge in the sights and sounds of the vibrant pink city and come back home to lush green surroundings and soothing tranquility, Rajvilas will be the ideal choice!

I acknowledge your comments on the shower in the Royal Tent and will personally inspect it to ensure that we restore top quality maintenance there.

Also, I will review the welcome and arrival process with the concerned department head to enhance the experience and bring in the 'Wow' effect.

Thank you once again for all your feedback. We all look forward to welcome you back on your next visit to Jaipur.

Best regards,

We stayed in The Oberoi in Jaipur while visiting the city. The hotel lobby and restaurant space are inside an adapted old fort with lush gardens (with a little temple surrounded by a pond, where I spotted the 'enigmatic' indian kingfisher !!) The rooms are located in little villa's in the large gardens (full of peacocks). Luckily, golf karts are available to move back and forth. Nice colonial style rooms with excellent beds. The Indian restaurant is worth a visit, not only for the setting but certainly for the excellent cuisine with real tandoori ovens ( the freshly baked naan bread is terrific!). Breakfast buffet is also excellent. Attentive staff.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking time to review your experience.

I am delighted to know that you had a good overall stay and were impressed with service and design and layout of the hotel. Your comments on the quality of room are very special.

Our lush green gardens attract a lot of birds and some lucky guests like you spot the kingfisher as well. It is good that you had the opportunity to spend a few leisurely hours in the gardens, just relaxing and bird watching! This is the best way to enjoy Rajvilas.

Rajmahal dining experience is like a culinary journey through India. Regional specialties, live cooking on tandoors, dining under the stars and traditional folk music all come together to create magic! Thank you so much for your appreciation of dining at Rajmahal.

All of us at Rajvilas look forward to welcome you back and perhaps on your next visit you will try your hand at making a 'naan' in the tandoor with our Indian Chef!

This may be one of the best Hotels in India. The hotel grounds are extensive and create this isolated feel. Hotel lobby & corridor is full of rich cultural roots of Jaipur -staff is super nice. There is so much to be said of this Hotel that most reviewers have already gone over & there should be no question on why people should stay here. This hotel may actually effect the tourism in Jaipur, as most people that stay here probably never want to leave the hotel to "sightsee". My single most favorite thing in this hotel is the Bathroom. Its one of a kind unique & done to fit the environment. I practically took a shower "outdoors" in private. Its a very rich experience & shower drainage/pressure was top notch. The room itself complements everything outside of the room, with its waterways, pathways & solitude of hotel grounds. The staff around entire property is very friendly, food service at Rajvilas has an amazing menu & food is to die for. Ive realized that it is ok if staying at Rajvilas is the only thing you see/do in Jaipur....

Dear Guest,

Thank you for an amazing review. Being referred to as the best in India is a very special recognition!

In your review you have described Rajvilas as a destination itself. It is a big compliment and I will share it with the entire team. Getting to know that in your opinion Rajvilas keeps the potential to enhance tourism in Jaipur is fantastic. It is this encouraging feedback from patrons like you which keeps us motivated to constantly improve and deliver memorable experiences.

Bathrooms in our guest rooms are really charming with showers and bathtubs overlooking a glass walled garden. I am happy to know that you were impressed with the design of the bathroom and consider it as one of the highlights of your stay with us.

I am grateful to you for the generous appreciation you have bestowed upon us for the quality of overall service, cuisine and the dining experience.

Please plan another trip to Rajvilas soon - just for Rajvilas! We will not spare any efforts to further improve upon the '7 star' experience you associate us with.

Proud to have you as a Rajvilas ambassador!

Best regards,
