“When On Safari !”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Like everyone else has said, away from the noise and bustle, almost the closest to the Safari Park. Low key amenities, limited food options and limited power and hot water. However was a pleasant break from India madness with great service. Bungalows and fitting were rustic, but hey we were on safari ! Shame about the pool not being usable due to the dead insects taking up the space.

A very welcome change from hotels. The clean and comfortable bungalows are situated in beautiful, peaceful gardens. We sat out on our verandah watching the birds and the falling leaves, and relaxed completely. The pool was great - we enjoyed our swims very much. We had a guided evening walk (about one and a half hours) and saw animals coming down to drink at the nearby lake, a sadhu living in a temple, and sunset over the beautiful countryside. Food was from a buffet and was good. Our only small criticism was that there was no bar menu, and we were served drinks at the cultural evening (put on for a group that was staying there) that we didn't realise we had to pay for. This was probably our fault, we should have asked!

We stayed for 2 nights as part of our tour package and the shift from city noise and traffic to the quiet of this resort was quite marked. Our room was a semi-detached bungalow in a well-kept manicured rustic setting. We sat outside on our porch to read and enjoy the birds and monkeys and were amazed that there were very few mosquitoes disturbing us. There was a shallow pool for dipping but the water was too cool for us to brave it. You can have a nice walk around the resort grounds - it will not take too long but you have views of faraway mountains and herds of goats and cows.

Note : there is no WiFi or TV. The room does have heating and air-condition as well as a ceiling fan, and adequate bathroom amenities. It was very basic but comfortable and clean - no complaints except for electrical outlets not working in the room (for our chargers).

The dining room staff were superior in service and the food was delicious. We arrived late to check-in and the staff kept food to serve us as soon as we went into the dining room. They prepare biscuits and tea/coffee/chai in the mornings before the safari and have breakfast/brunch ready on your return. Typically, guests have 2 safaris a day one in early morning and the second in the early afternoon. The resort is fairly deep in from the main road, so walking out is difficult. It is close to some of the main entrances to Rathambore National Park but your safari may not start from that particular zone (it was reported to us that our safari tour areas were randomly selected - meaning that our guide is assigned a certain zone that we go to - I believe there are 9 zones in the park).

I had read about staff organizing a video of the tigers and park etc. but no such event was evident during our stay. There were 2 shops that are in the vicinity - friendly staff and surprisingly nice handicrafts and fine jewellery.

Would I stay here again should I re-visit? Perhaps not, and this has nothing to do with the staff or hotel - but rather allow us another experience elsewhere.

We stayed 3 nights as part of a tour from 'tour my india' (who were fantastic). The staff here, particularly Bharat and Manoj (the chef) are very friendly indeed, the food was good, the rooms are clean and the general setting at the edge of the national park ensured we saw Nilgai (bluebulls) actually in the garden. A leopard had been 'spotted' nearby a couple of nights before. The swimming pool was being cleaned when we were there otherwise I'd have gone in for sure. Plenty of bird life in the wooded garden as well as langur monkeys and the ubiquitous striped squirrels. Fantastic place for the price and I'd stay again. With regards to the national park it's meant to be a lottery which zone you're given on each game drive but if you fancy a change just ask Bharat or Manoj who should be able to help.

We stayed here 2 nights in February and enjoyed this peaceful country place with great service. Fun to watch the birds and monkeys in the trees just outside our room. Grounds were well kept and the room was clean with a "rustic decor" you'd expect by a park. Good views of the hills in the Ranthambhore from the property. Food was good also. Very convenient for doing safaris in the park. The staff were all very attentive. If we were to return to Ranthambhore we would stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights in january and absolutely loved our stay here. The Tiger moon staff did everything to make us feel at home. We loved reading on the porch of our bungalow while watching monkeys in the trees while enjoying the blissful silence of the place. The food (both breakfast and dinner) was terriffic and made us forget the fact that we didn't see a tiger at the Ranthambore park. The bungalow we were given was clean and atmospheric, a good value for your money.

If we would have had a little more time we would have gone on a bushwalk with wildlife guide-to-be Dinesh, who seemed to have infinite knowledge about the direct surroundings of the resort.

Visited this place with 7 friends and it was worth it. We arrived very early morning at this resort as we were looking for more than a regular resort experience and the reviews of Tripadvisor had taken us here. And we were not disappointed.
In fact, these guys were so awesome that they gave us the room much before the Check-in time and let us stay much much later than the check-out time as our ride was late to pick us up. And did not charge us anything extra for that.

We went without any prior booking and luckily we got the two rooms we wanted at a better price than any of the online agents. And the resort is spectacular. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They will help you in any way possible. They infact took us leopard spotting late at night from the roof with a searchlight as the river/stream behind the resort draws all sorts of animals at night. Especially the Leopard. Apart from the service, the food great and the quality of the rooms and hot water service is top class too.

We did our tiger safari booking directly from the booking counter which is in the middle of the city. But one of the entry gate is 10-15 min walk from the resort. But to book it, you need to go to the center of the town which is a 40 min ride to the booking office. So if your planning to do the safari on your own (which is obviously very cheap), book it the day when you arrive and then enter the resort. Or make friends with a rickshawala who will come and pick you up and charge you around 250/- bucks for 3 ppl.

The resort did not have a problem with us going ahead and doing the booking directly, like some other resorts. Infact, they asked us about our trip and gave us news about other travellers who went the same day and spotted the tiger.

I would higly recomment this resort for the location (closest to the park) and the service of the staff and resort quality. I will definitely visit this place again.
