Oberoi Vanyavillas is heaven on earth. The rooms are called tents, but they are large, luxurious and gorgeously private. There are sitting areas outside, with flowers, greenery and sky all that one can see. Gardens and grounds are gorgeous. The service was phenomenal - friendly, warm and caring, and also efficient. The manager, Ratna, was superb. She was everywhere, was extremely personable and caring, and everything ran like clockwork. One evening we listened to a naturalist talk about tigers - we ordered martinis, and our waiter remembered exactly how we liked them from our order the previous night. Impressive. The food was wonderful. Eating outdoors around the large firepit was romantic.We did not manage to see a tiger, but enjoyed our safari. My only regret was that we didn't have more time here. This hotel was a highlight of our time in India.

Room Tip: They are all wonderful.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking out the time to write such a fantastic review on the Trip Advisor.

A stay in a luxury tent at The Oberoi Vanyavilas is certainly unique; it brings you close to the nature without compromising on luxury and comfort.

Our resort offers an excellent opportunity to relax and unwind in the tranquil surroundings. I am happy to know that you had a relaxed vacation and have thoroughly enjoyed the exquisiteness of the flora and fauna around.

Thank you for your very kind words on our rooms, personalized service and our food quality. I am very glad to learn that the inner courtyard with the bonfire also added to your dining experience.

I have also shared your kind feedback with our naturalist and the food and beverage team. They are delighted to hear that you enjoyed their services.

We are committed to consistently provide warm, efficient and discrete services to our guests. Thank you for your acknowledgment of my teams’ genuine care and concern

World class in every respect.
Masive, very comfortable, very well appointed tent roof rooms. Loads of space inside and out and for us the most comfortable beds of the 6 Oberois we stayed in.
Great food.
Fantastic staff.
In a rating system where excellent is top this hotel goes beyond in every area.
Given this hotel is based around safaris to Ranthambhore National Park and the chance to see Tigers in the wild, visitors must realise that the odds of success are small. We met lots of people who had done 4 or 5 safaris and not seen a trace, however the park is beautiful and the hotel is worth the trip on its own.
I pass on advice that served us well.
We were advised that zones 2,3,4 were best and we saw 2 tigers eating a deer in zone 2. We were also told morning drives and smaller jeeps had the best chance.
Thank you all at Vanyavilas World Class

Room Tip: All rooms identical

A spiritual retreat...I had the time of my life. The staff was super attentive, our luxury tent was unbelievable. The food was amazing...It was my birthday and the chef prepared a special menu just for me...I spent some time at the spa and my massage therapist was a god...what a wonderful treatment I received (a rose petal and milk bath)...My brother and I saw a glorious tiger the morning of my birthday, what a gift...(trip was in June 2011, but couldn't select this date from the drop down menu).

It is original in the sense that the bungalow is a tent !, but with floor and walls. Inside there is everything , but really everything. The tents are huge, the bathrooms even bigger.,each tent is completely isolated from the next one, with a huge dedicated garden. The property is a masterpiece of gardening, and a paradise for the bird watcher. The food at the restaurant is excellent. The masterpiece though is the service. The hotel is small, only 25 tents, so you really feel the personal service. Of course, all this is expected, since the hotel manager is around ALL DAY LONG!!! Don't miss the experience of staying there and of course taking the safari of the Ranthambhore Park.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally fantastic.

These are very luxurious tents with large bathrooms and charming tiger covered wallpaper. The service was terrific and in the evening there was music around the campfire. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff quite charming. We were lucky enough to see both a tiger and a leopard during our two night stay. The drives in the game preserve are not very interesting or scenic. Had we not seen a tiger we would have been disappointed. Seeing a tiger up close in the wild was quite amazing and we were thrilled to see a leopard on the second day.

Room Tip: All of the tents appear to be the same. The one's in the back a quiter
