“Royal Host For Royal Enfield Team”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

we 30 bikers by Royal Enfield Visited sher vilas for 1 Night, We booked 10 Maharaja Tents. This Place Was Amazing For Us. We Reached at Morning 11 AM and Welcomed By Fresh Flower Garlands. And Management Has Allowed Us For Early Check In. Tents Are Very Spacious And Awesome. Our Entire Group Loved This. Interior Of Tent Is Really Superb. Best Part Of Resort is Location. Location is Very Peaceful and Outskirt. we felt like We are In Jungle.
Swimming Pool Was Clean, Sitting Outside tent is good. i liked traditional chairs. Garden Was Well Maintained. Food Was Very Delicious, Thanks To Chef Bhawani Singh, In Dinner Red Meat Was Very Very Tasty. Cultural show along with bonfire at the Lawn Was Really good our whole group enjoyed alot and danced with them. We have Got More then We expect. Thank you so much Mr.Deepak For Making Us Trip Memorable, We will Definetely Come To Your Resort Very Soon With more then 50 Bikers. As This Time you had only 10 tents available on given date. We will Definetely Recommend This Resort To Our Friends and Families.
See you Soon Sher Vilas Team.

Room Tip: Go For Maharaja Tents close to trees.

Where should I start...

This resort made my entire journey wonderful or I would say the best trip ever with my frens.

I reached station and they provided hotel transfer from railway station which I paid upfront but I didn't had to waste my time at station.
When I reached, I didn't expect that I will get such a beautiful hotel at so reasonable price.
I also appreciate the hopistality given by Deepak. All staff were friendly and they organised the games for my frens and that services made me feel so royal. Well i would thank Deepak for all this.

The room is fantastic and pool was so clean thats why we spent all our free time in pool side. Apart from hotel cleanliness I would say meals were also delicious. all my friends were apreciating. also i would say because services delivered on time so everyone like it. Loved our jungle safari an also they organised cultural program in the evening before dinner. everything prefect!!


I am definitely gonna visited again with my family and would recommend others too.

I booked the Maharaja tents (two) in Sher Vilas going by the reviews (needless to say I ignored the -ve reviews which ultimately turned out to be so true). I wonder how the resort manages to have +ve reviews at all!!!
1. Access to Sher Vilas is terrible, or let me say there is no access because our taxi (for onward journey) got stuck on its way to pick us because of the swamp right in front of Sher Vilas.
2. Food is average. I have had royal, elaborate meals at tourist places for half the price. Infact, its the first time I happened to taste kheer without any dry fruits or even elaichi :) I was denied tea during breakfast as we were already provided tea early in the morning in front of dining area before the safari!!! Breakfast was poor.
3. Reached the place at about 6.30 pm only to be greeted by a power cut (mind you the back up only permits a CFL per tent. Power was restored later but the situation can be imagined in a tent with absolute darkness in the "private lawn".
4. Talking of "private lawn" for Maharaja tents, its simply a space with unkept vegetation and muddy access
5. To add to all this there was thunderstorm the morning after we spent the night. And that broke all hell loose with no water (I am talking of unavailability of even cold water) or electricity for hours together.
6. While we were told that for tents water is heated in boilers, I suggest you inform of your requirement of warm (forget about hot) water a night before, of course that does not mean reminders (in my case 4 times) are not needed.
7. The rains led to a situation where I couldnt even access my tent because of the mud. The senior members of the group had to be confined to their tents.
8. Water dripping from tent, wet bed and carpet and the unbearable stink made the morning hours horrendous for us.
9. On asking the owner Mr Suresh (based in Noida office) of what amenities are being provided to their customers, and what is the compensation for such an unpleasant experience, an SMS was received instructing a full payment before we leave.
10. The front desk person Mr Deepak was in a strange situation with Mr Suresh and Mr Ashish (we were told latter is also a partner) passing away unpractical orders of taking full payment from guests while the guests had a list of complaints ranging from food, water to electricity.
11. After an hour long argument over phone, spoiling the stay further, finally Mr Deepak offered us a discount of Rs 2750 (approx 25%), Mr Suresh / Mr Ashish were not ready to budge from a discount of 13.5% which was completely unacceptable to us keeping in mind the experience we had.
Awaiting your response Mr Suresh / Mr Ashish, and please dont respond saying such a review is because we could not sight a tiger (thats very funny).

Room Tip: dont go by the pictures put by Sher Vilas, deceptive. You can visit the place for some adventure, bu...

hotel is managed by a bunch of young guys whose interest is not the hospitality but playing cricket, browsing internet, watching TV ect. The room we stayed(202) was named DELUX but no hot water, no TV, no intercom, the bathroom floor & the commode were dirty. guest rooms were uses by the hotel staff shabbily as rooms were most of the time vacant (no designated staff lodging). Restaurant was full of flies during the day time. Most of all there was a big garbage collection at the front of the hotel and also was a caucus of a cow emitting awful smell which made the entire site disgusting. two complaints made regarding hot water which was not attended but at the time of checkout the manager Mr Deepak's answer was "u were not the only guest but I had to attend to many matters as the manager" However during my stay 31st march to 2nd April 2014 only two more rooms were occupied which kept this manager really busy!!! Charged exorbitant price of RS 3400 for two seats in a six seater gypsy to zone 6 which was not a zone to see a tiger, hiding this fact. later persuaded to change the plan to include zones 1 to 5 (zones with tiger movement)in a canter. The pictures shown in the web are very deceiving. Poorly maintained hotel not at all suitable for a guest looking for a decent stay incurring expenses on air fair and local taxi fares. this is for sure the worst hotel in the locality trying to par with the rest only by the hotel charges.

Room Tip: please do not site this hotel

I stayed in a large chalet room here for 2 days whilst doing safari's in Ranthambore. The rooms are clean, comfortable, well equiped and not at all expensive.

But the main thing about this resort that made it a great place to stay was the hotel location and staff. In all the hotels/guesthouses I stayed in going around North India, I did not meet a more welcoming, accommodating and friendly group of people that were always on hand to help you, for a chat or a game of cricket.

That, and the location on the outskirts of Sawai Madhopur, is ideal for pickup for safari's and also for quiet relaxing meals/drinking in the evening; and is an easy auto ride from the train station. I cannot reccommend this place enough to anyone, it's a great place to stay.
