“Excellent hotel !”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We spent 2 nights here recently and wished we had arranged to stay longer. This is a beautiful tented camp close to the Rathambore national park. The tents are luxurious and have beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms - ours had a lovely garden which we didn't really have time to enjoy. There are several nice touches - like hot water bottles and the service was excellent - staff even remembered your name! There is a nice swimming pool area too. Only criticism was that wifi is not included. Food was good especially the breakfasts !

Spent two nights here on a Bengal Tiger Safari earlier this month. The luxury tented property is pure perfection! Immaculate and spacious with a small private garden - no mosquitoes (or any sign of them anyway)! Ratna Malhotra the GM and her team ensured that our stay was just perfect in every way; the food was excellent, the service impeccable as you would expect from a property of this calibre.

Upon arrival we had time for a quick bite to eat and then off on our afternoon game drive. Our driver still had not arrived our luggage (we travelled from Agra to Ranthambore by train - approx. 3 hours - with only one small hand luggage) and we did not have any sun screen with us. It was hot and sunny and as soon as I mentioned that my sun screen was in my other luggage, one of the front office staff suddently appeared with a small bottle of sun screen! That for me is superb customer service!! And this service continued throughout our stay!!

The dinners in the evening were exquisite with live traditional music; one of our party was celebrating a birthday and Ratna had arranged a lovely private dinner for the four of us in the private garden again with live music and birthday surprise - most of the team appeared with sparklers and cake and song!!

We visited the Spa and I had a treatment with Hot Shells which I have to admit was probably the best spa treatment that I have ever had! I was in seventh heaven!!

On our second game drive we were lucky enough to see a Tiger which we trekked for about an hour or so, that of course added to the magic and highlight of our stay at Vanyavilas. The property is expensive but as are all Oberoi properties in India but well worth the money!!

An excellent hotel - the service impeccable as you would expect from an Oberoi, the accommodation beautiful - a truely luxurious 'tent' with two private patios, very comfortable bedroom/ sitting room and a spacious bathroom/ dressing area.
We fitted in three safaris - and were successful in seeing a tiger on the first one! Not everyone was but there is plenty else to see - particularly on the afternoon safari as the animals are very close, not spooked by jeeps and camera clicks, and the lakes are great for bird watching. Mind you the blankets and hot water bottles were worth getting up for on the early safari, and not rushed at breakfast on returning.
However do leave time to enjoy the hotel too - the swimming pool was excellent, and we had no time to sample the spa, fitness room or observation tower.
Thoroughly recommended!

This is not a hotel or a resort. It's paradise and especially for wild life enthusiast and nature lover.

They have more staff than the total number of guests in the resort - so the service is flawless and the hotel staff including the geneal manager of the hotel will know you by your name.

The tents are beautifully done and it gives you a feeling of sleeping under the stars. Each tents has a lawn and a garden, where you have the most beautiful birds chirping next to you.

The bath area is as big as the room itself and again very beautiful.

After the noise and chaos of New Delhi, what a treat it was to spend the second half of our trip to India in this tranquil paradise. We felt we were treated like family by all the staff members and especially the manager, Ms. Malhotra. The "tents" are clean and very tasteful. The grounds are beautiful. The food was outstanding. The pool with its very prompt poolside service was so relaxing. Walks with the horticulturalist and evening talks with the naturalist were informative, enjoyable and entertaining. I have never felt so sad to leave a hotel, and I can only hope to return someday.

It is difficult to fault the Oberoi Vanyavilas. Service is impeccable and very personal. The tented accommodation is truly luxurious. Dining is delightful.
The elephant ride and bathing them afterwards was a lot of fun. We went to Ranthambore primarily to see a tiger in the wild, and although some other visitors to the Park saw one we unfortunately didn't. We did see other wild life, but tiger spotting is a chancy thing. Nonethless, because of the Oberoi our visit to Ranthambore was very worthwhile.

Tired after a 7 hour car journey on colourful but bumpy roads the Oberoi Vanvilas was like a mirage in the Desert. You drive into a courtyard and are greeted by the staff and taken through large doors into another fabulous courtyard that takes you into a cool lobby with a freshwater melon juice and cool towel. Everything here is as perfect as it possibly can be. Our Tent, which is essentially areal building covered by tent like structure outside and inside was beyond fabulous. Hardwood floors our own walled garden with chaise longs an incredible bathroom. It was simply gorgeous and you ask yourself why cant other hotels get it right. The hotel is about 25 ‘tents’ in gorgeous ground with a meandering water feature, a backdrop of the mountains. A massage at the breathtaking spa is a must. A fantastic vegetable garden looked after a lovely horticulturist who can take you around the property and explain the trees fruits birds. A lovely observation tower and what pool service. Immediately on arriving frozen grapes, water spray sun tan lotion water cool towel is brought to you as part of the service, I loved this place the staff are very very helpful and its chef manager horticulturist are all women which probably explains its tranquil calm service.
