From the moment we walked into Dev Vilas I fell in love. This place was a haven which was incredibly tastefully decorated. We were on the first floor so had a view over the valley which was great. Made the fatal mistake of talking to the local children who then decided we were money bags! The ground of the Vilas... More

This place was beautiful! The owner has 3 very friendly dogs, and the Villas had a very comfortable feel. They had a tiger movie night out in the courtyard, which was really interesting. Overall it really had a very safari-esqe feel to it. I visited in April 2015.

I recently stayed at the Dev Vilas while visiting Ranthambhore on a two week trip to India. The rooms and property were clean and inviting. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was very easy to get to the national park. Overall a great stay.

What a fantastic place. A gem we only found out about after speaking to our friends in India who knew the area. My parents were staying there and we were staying at a large five star resort. We ended up spending a lot of time at Dev Villas which was beautiful, hospitable and very comfortable. The owner is extremely hospitable... More

Our Tour Manager told us right up front that there were other hotels that offered beautiful surroundings but lacked the service and the Dev villas delivered. He was right - the building is a little more basic BUT truly comfortable and the rooms were clean (we all had 2 bathrooms in the rooms so no waiting there) - a little... More
