“TENTED LUXURY”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Wow - and what a tent! This is like no tent you will ever have stayed in, marble bath, four poster bed, day beds, private garden etc etc. This is an absolutely out of world experience. The grounds are magnificent and reflect the passion and enthusiasm of Manoj, the Head Horticulturist, who's wealth of knowledge was second to none and who's pleasure it was to escort us around his domain. Many thanks to Ratna, the wonderful Manageress, who showed such passion for her resort, personal attention to her guests and shone as a beacon in an otherwise very male dominated position. Everyone goes to Ranthambhore for the tigers, which we saw, but to complete your wildlife adventure spend some time here walking the grounds and soaking up all Vanyavillas has to offer.

Thanks a lot Team Vanyavilas for hosting us for past few days. For my family this has resulted in lasting memories and a re-affirmation of the excellent service brand Oberoi is !!!

Dear Ratna, Manjari specially wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience she had. And Nandini has promptly re-named two of her toy elephants as Mala and Lakshmi. Also introduced a small Sheru (with a rajasthani Pagri) in our home jungle collection.

We would surely love to be back sometime soon.

I am so glad that Manjari and Nandini also enjoyed their stay with us. I have loved the name “Sheru” they have given to the our little tiger friend and we shall too now have him addressed by the same name.

My team and I look forward to the pleasure of you and your families’ continued visits and assure you the best of the Oberoi hospitality.

Thank you

We stayed here as our 3rd stop on a tour of Golden Triangle plus this stop. All Oberoi hotels and all fantastic (I have reviewed them also) The check in , usual swift personal service greeted by staff by name, given cold towels and refreshing drink and taken to our room where all amenities explained in full.
The villa was spacious, big four poster bed, wonderful big bathroom with free standing bath. We loved the tented roof as you could here the birds landing on it so you really felt part of the jungle.The villa had a secluded garden with plenty of places to sit.
There's an observation tower with binoculars which was nice.
There is just the 1 restaurant with either inside or court yard dining and the food and service was very good overall. We had a slight glitch when I asked for fries instead of mash with my dinner and was given mash and my husband asked for a beer which never arrived. Another slight glitch was 1 of the 2 lunch times by the pool when I ordered a sandwich before we went out on our afternoon game drive. 40 minutes later it hadn't arrived and we had to go in to shower and get dressed ready for pick up. When I explained to the waiter he looked a little blank at first, but then remembered and was extremely apologetic. I asked if he could cancel it as we didn't have time to eat it. I said that it wasn't a problem we just didn't have time. He wanted to bring it to our room and seemed genuinely upset. He told his manager and the general manager who both came up to us in the lobby to apologise (we really weren't upset, but this is the level of outstanding care that the staff take and take full responsibility for minor hiccups.) They insisted on bringing the sandwich to us in the lobby whilst we waited for our jeep, bless them.
Out of the 3 drives we saw a tiger on the 3rd one, this time we had a freelance driver and guide and they were fabulous - on the drives we saw plenty of deer, birds, crocodile, lots of monkeys and babies - aaaww, jackal, wart hog and the beautiful tiger. Very bumpy on the jeeps tho, so if you have a bad back I would not advise it.
Swimming pool, lobby and all communal areas simply outstanding and the staff like i said are second to none. When we had our last breakfast before leaving one of the waiters came running after me and gave me a cuddly tiger. Simply outstanding

On behalf of my team, I am extremely apologetic for the inconvenience caused to you with regards to the service in the restaurant and at the pool. My team and I will ensure that we are certainly more cautious and are thankful to you for giving us another opportunity and not letting this effect your overall experience of our resort.

My team and I are however delighted that you were able to see the tiger and the other wildlife in the jungle and we look forward to the pleasure of your continued visits and assure you the best of the Oberoi hospitality.

The Manager (Ratna Malhotra) and her team make you feel like you are at home. The "tents" are stunning and the staff really try to get to know you.
The opportunity for tiger viewing is the biggest reason to come to Ranthambore, but the Vanyavilas certainly make it worth staying a couple of more days.
