We originally booked the tent bungalow but they gave us the option to upgrade to a room. The tents were small and simple, the room far more luxurious so we chose that. Lovely, big and comfy with 2 bathrooms: one toilet and vanity, and one with toilet, shower, bath and vanity. A delight! The pool is a good size and...

We stayed here as part of a Cox and Kings tour of North India. At first appearance this is a stunning hotel and location. We had no complaints about our room but a few of our fellow travellers were far from happy. The hotel had clearly overbooked and one single member of our party ended up staying in the Hotel...

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed 4 game drives. The hotel was clean and comfortable. All staff were helpful and friendly. The pool was a very welcome addition and the on-site shop had some very reasonable prices, especially for clothing. There have been some criticism of the buffet meals, but we found the food hot, tasty and sufficient. Our...

Nice property , good rooms and great experience staying in Tents. Top class personalised service. The staff goes a extra mile to serve you. Great value for money. Lacks finesse of a luxury hotel. Entrance , lobby needs upgradation. Menu is basic specially for breakfast- they should work on it. More choices should be provided. Overall great experience

So lovely to spend a couple of days here after all the noise and bustle of the cities. Room was lovely, staff and owner very helpful and food was fine. Early starts to the game reserve were catered for with wake up calls and pre departure hot drinks and biscuits. Wish we could have stayed longer.

A small hotel, conveniently situated close to one of the gates of the Ranthambore Park. The hotel consisted of a main building, a swimming pool area, and individual 'tented style' bungalows situated a short walk away in the gardens. We were not happy with our original allocation of a bungalow, and were moved to a large comfortable room in the...

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...
