Although we stayed in many great hotels in Rajasthan, this had to be the nicest,, the rooms were huge & beautiful & clean, the food was delicious, the pool & grounds were amazing!! Was so nice to have this luxury after a long day of touring & driving in the desert heat!! Just loved it 😀

Personally, Ratan Vilas has been my best hotel experience in Rajasthan. Great value for money. Excellent cook, tasty breakfast buffet and one of the best dinners in India. Staff is attentive and service-minded.

A true gem of a place to stay. Our only complaint was that the hotel was such an oasis of beauty and calm that one was tempted to stay there all day.

"Ratan Vilas" took me back in time to my childhood and the family homes and haveli's which in the 70's were not really 'unusual' but home to many a family get togethers. The ambience and layout of the property is welcoming, homely and to say the least inviting. The lovely garden and tucked away cool environments of the poolside help... More

The hotel is beautiful. Colonial in style with a lovely breakfast courtyard and great pool area. Breakfast was tasty with lots of options. Room on the ground floor was lacking natural light but that is the only thing I could improve upon. A lovely little gem!!
