Choosing to have Balendu Singh to be your ally in Ranthambore, is as simple a decision, as turning on your GPS when you are in unfamiliar terrain. Balendu Singh knows the jungle better than most other people. You cannot find a more well qualified and experienced advisor for all the jungle related experiences that one visits Ranthambore for. I had read about his achievements as a hotelier, as a Para Clay Target Shooting expert and as a naturalist, but I needed to make the trip to Ranthambore bask in the warmth he exudes to all guests. To make this easy for people doing an evaluation, let me do this in a TOP 5 REASONS form : 

 1. I think that Mr. Balendu Singh has handpicked his staff and trained them to radiate the same warmth and affection to all his guests. People actually care about your stay, they are not parroting lines taught to them at HR Training Classes. 2. The “Lodge” as he likes to call it, blends into the environment rather than sticks out. It shows respect to nature and to our traditional Indian value system of harmony with nature. 3. The property itself is spectacular without being ostentatious. Styled on the hunting lodges built by Maharajas, Dev Vilas is aesthetically constructed without forgetting the purpose it is built for. 4. The rooms are large and very very comfortable. All the creature comforts you require are made available. 5. The Food is absolutely wonderful. Since we were a group, we stayed with the buffet arrangements. I’ve been vegetarian for a few years and was so happy to experience variations on the style of preparation of some of my favorite vegetables. We had an incredible 2 nights, 3 days at Dev Vilas. We were a group of batch mate trying to discover the forest and also spend quality time together. Dev Vilas did such a wonderful job of facilitating our evening get togethers. They provided us “exclusive spaces” with impeccable service. Since price is an important consideration for many of us, I must share, that if you are concerned about Value for Money, you may not be able to find something better. Couldn’t have wished for more. Thank you Balendu. Thank you, all at Dev Vilas.

Stayed at the Resort from 10th to 12th March. The warmth and courtesy displayed by the staff was exemplary. The meals were exquisite. Was smitten by the effort taken by the owner to speak with the guests individually and share his passion and knowledge of the region. The entire experience was over whelming. Your guests wanting to experience customer service with a smile, Dev Vilas is strongly recommended.

It was a fantastic stay at Dev Vilas Palace. The rooms were spacious ,and also had 2 toilets which is a bonus when you need to leave early for your safari Also having our tea at 6 am just before the safari was wonderful touch to our stay. The ambience, the courteous staff and the good food served with warmth truly made our stay memorable. Very much recommend the property.

Group of school friends( all 70 plus) travel to national tiger reserves every year. This year it was Ranthambore and Dev Vilas was recommended. Delighted with our decision. The 28 room hotel has spacious comfortable rooms. The service was excellent with staff always happy to oblige. Every evening we sat outside, having our drinks round a roaring fire. The food was excellent and they were always asking us for our food preferences. Safaris were organised by the hotel and we were extremely lucky to have excellent tiger sightings on four of the six safaris we took. Mr Balendu Singh, the man behind Dev Vilas looked after us extremely well.He spent a lot of time with us - accompanied us on several safaris plus spent evenings answering our questions on wildlife, flora , fauna, history, mythology etc. A great source of information and the man who contributed the most in making our trip as enjoyable and successful as it was. We wish Balendu and his team every success in future and highly recommend the hotel to visitors who wish to enjoy a holiday in Ranthambore.
