We stayed here as a family and I think it was our favourite hotel on our trip to India. From booking our rooms to the end of the stay the service was excellent. We booked two poolside rooms which were gorgeous - big, spacious and beautifully furnished with a small terrace overlooking the pool but far enough away for it... More

We loved everything about this lovely little family run boutique hotel. The rooms were clean, modern and very thoughtfully furnished. The owners were lovely people who were always smiling and welcoming. The staff were so courteous and thoughtful. Great value for money and it felt like a homestay with all the frills! Do try and book the superior pool facing... More

Before we booked we sent an e-mail to Brijraj for more details of the things we should see in Jodhpur and the weather conditions there. His advice was very important and we... More

We stayed here in the monsoon season during unusual rainstorms, which did make a difference to our stay in Jodhpur; however it didn't make a difference to the beauty of the hotel. This is built in the 1920s and has been a family home throughout its history. The owner still lives there and welcomed us personally which was lovely and... More

We stayed at Ratan Vilas in November 2015. It is such a lovely, well run hotel that I would love to return to Jodhpur just so as to stay there again!! Harish,the manager, had written to me that we would be staying in the new wing as the old wing was already booked. This worried me slightly because I thought... More

It was a pleasure to return to this hotel and see the result of the building work that was on-going during our last visit. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to one of the new poolside rooms and they are really special. The service at this hotel is low key but very professional. All the staff seem genuinely motivated...

This is a gem of a hotel in Jodhpur - the city itself is busy and crowded, but once you enter Ratan Vilas, it's elegance and tranquility. We stayed two nights, and have fond memories. The mansion still belongs to royalty & is beautifully maintained. There is a pool, a garden with a water body and a patio restaurant -... More
