“Absolutely a class apart!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Words won't do justice to the experience of Vanyavilas! One needs to be there to feel the experience!

Name anything and Vanyavilas does it well - actually - very well... The staff is incredibly involved/engaged. Same with the chefs. The General Manager is no exception. Absolutely consistent in delivery, quality, service, taste...name it and you get it!

The amount of detail orientation is unbelievable. Everything is personalized. I wonder how they don't miss anything at all! Can't happen without great training, meticulous process orientation, tremendous attention to specifics/detail, inspiring leadership... Vanyavilas team has it all...And no property can be great without its staff/people... (and hence not writing much about the property - which by itself is so good...)

Overall - A class apart! An absolute must at least once in life...

We spent 5 wonderful days at this superb Oberoi property. From the moment we arrived until our reluctant departure, the staff ensured that we had the most brilliant stay. This included a surprise birthday dinner for my husband in a private garden, all organized without request by the outstanding General Manager. This is an exceptional piece of paradise, with excellent food, superb service and an incredible atmosphere. Plus we saw 7 tigers in wonderful Ranthambore.
Many thanks for an experience and special birthday we shall never forget. It was perfection!

Oberoi Vanyavillas its an life time experience that one should hv will mention first about Mr arvind from oberoi Kolkata yes it is
From the last 20 days was so much confused due to the climatic conditions and saw almost year reviews of trip advisor and finally decided to go for this place
I am not a wild life fan but will suggest everyone its all together a different experience
As we entered in the hotel was greeted by rohan and gm ratna w a way they welcome their guest they took information about the kids and childrean were welcomed as prince and princess
Then we entered into the tents simply unbelievable better then the rooms ever I hv seen here u find everything nice bedroom with a very nice bathroom and a beautiful surrounding of birds and peacocks with a good garden
Now lets discuss about the service part I feel oberoi hv trained their staff to a very different level and they create miracles to make their guest happy
The first day had some issues with food but once chef Dipin understood our choice the things got turned thanx dipin u r superb with ur team mark and will specially mention about mukesh always smiling
Once again though i left this place but would say its truly a different life time experience

Oberoi Vanya vilas are far most the best property in Swai Madhopur, EVEN if u do not spot a tiger the holiday is satisfactory as the property & hospitality are superior.
Staff is exceptional, from the reservations to farewell everything is meticulously taken care.
We planned to visit Ranthambore in peak summer with a 4 year old baby, trying our stint on adventure...
Natural wilderness,Exotic birds, waterbodies & the royal blue paintings on the wall everything was idyllic.
Special mention to vikas a House Keeping staff who took care of our room with a warm welcome of cookies & chocolates in name of our son, a sp tiny bed with baby toiletries,step stool was utmost thought about. Bedtime stories each night personalised and making towel motifs was each day a pleasant surprise as we entered the room.
Warm welcome by GM Ratna.. just like at home was extremely comforting in the scorching heat.
Naturalist & guide Arjun left no stone unturned for making sure our 4 yr old had a fab time bathing the elephant ,riding or even making him eat...His valuable time & knowledge by accompanying us to the forest will be cherised forever...
Security is utmost and stories of tiger entering the campus are should be rubbished as they have high walls...sad for true wildlife enthusiast...but this is a luxary tent property at par with the game reserves in S.A
Randhir as we called him Ranbir kapoor...along with chef gave us a surprise farewell in the poolside garden with candles lit & made a sp mango mocktail till it was not perfect ....This outdoor meal under the stars was icing on the cake.
Farewell with flower petals and special breakfast ,always a butler at service... wot more do u want from a holiday.
The bar has risen even higher.. Oberoi has truly pampered us and spoilt us..Luxary holiday which was far more superior then the Six senses,St.Regis,W,Banyan tree and many more hotels we have stayed around the world.

A not to miss experience with the vanyavilas Oberoi.
Thank you so much Navdeep, Rohan,sukhraj....and whoever I have missed. We have taken back a wonderful memory back home as your service was FABULOUS!
Keep it up all the best.

Tip: Forest like the other santuaries are divided in zones & bookings are done by govt,hotel has no control over the zone allocated. Zones 2 to 5 are preffered as topography of land is scenic and not much arid.
Khemvilas,Devvilas,sherbag are also simple property for wildlife enthusiast on a shoe string budget.They are only 500mtrs from the jungle.

Room Tip: Room near the lake...quieter and beautiful view avoid the room near the observatory tower is really...

It is a real pleasure arriving in this paradise after the 8hr (smooth but long) drive from Delhi.

Highlights:
1/ restaurant - excellent Thai, Italian as well as Indian dishes, great wines
2/ bedtime stories for the children
3/ elephants Mala & Lakshmi - quite possibly the happiest elephants in the country
4/ lush grounds
5/ professional and attentive staff

Suggestions:
a/ go off season when rates and crowds are low but tiger sightings high
b/ that being said, concentrate on the entire experience, not the sightings
c/ book an exclusive gypsy, it is worth the price
d/ one safari a day especially for those with children (not recommended for children under 3, parents should take turns)
e/ bathe the elephants even if there are no children with you
f/ book a bird walk with in-house naturalist Arjun

Beautiful grounds, luxurious tents and sounds of nature make for a relaxing holiday. I particularly enjoy my early morning walk on the grounds. My favorite though has always been the friendly and efficient staff. That has been a constant on all the trips:)
