This is definitely one of the easiest reviews to write and recommendations to give. Sumptuous accommodations, five star service, and on-site dining as memorable as the tigers we spotted, all made our stay at the Oberoi Vanyvilas one our family will never forget.

After having come from staying at the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, it is hard for any hotel to follow. The Oberoi was sensational, but there small glitches that soured the moments at times. The staff was incredibly friendly but sometimes their priorities were warped. They would fawn over certain guests then abandon the others. The families who were staying in the tents dominated the property and seemed to take all the attention from the staff, but also took over the property. If only the property did not allow for children, it would make things so much better! The pool was always filled with noisy children and families. Going for a quiet vacation was tough here.
We came in April where it was quiet hot, which was a shame as the ambiance in the outdoor areas are stellar. The dining areas indoors and bar indoors was beautiful, but the outdoor spaces were preferable.
The hotel is great, though. Rooms are very luxurious, staff friendly. It is a shame the tiger safari isn’t included in the room rate as they are in luxury lodges in South Africa. I would definitely not recommend splurging on the Oberoi safari and would opt for the one from the national park as it is just a race to find the tiger and there really isn’t a skill needed by the guide to be able to find one. All cars are just following one another, with the Oberoi one also following suit.
The food in the restaurant was very good---at least the Indian food. But we had to ask for the more extensive Indian menu as it caters to many tourists who they assume don’t like or want to eat Indian food, which is a shame. We also did the cocktail hour at the Observation tower which was so worth it! Amazing start to the evening and highly recommended.
The managers were very responsive to our feedback through the stay and did their best to amend our glitches. I would definitely stay there again, hoping less children will be present next time.

We had such an amazing experience visiting Ranthambore and staying at this lovely hotel. Every member of the hotel team was so helpful and friendly, and the food and the tents were wonderful. They went out of their way to make sure all of us, including our three children, had an excellent time. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer, and we will definitely be returning as soon as we can!

There is nothing new I can say about this property that has not already been said. Being an Oberoi hotel, it maintains the highest levels of luxury and a keen eye for detail. Our experience was further enhanced with the level of personalisation & attentiveness shown by all. From the GM downwards, everyone knows how to make you feel special as a guest - be it the staff at the Front office, F & B, Housekeeping, Spa or the team of Naturalists.The Chef would personally enquire what we wanted to eat for lunch or dinner and make it even if it wasn't part of the menu ! That's how my 11 year old got a plate full of prawn ravioli in lemon butter sauce for breakfast ! They just pull out all the stops.
The hotel grounds are sprawling and green, abounding in fruit trees and frequented by langurs, peacocks and many species of birds we have never seen in our lives - It's such a visual treat. To be woken up in the morning (some times, as early as 4 am) by the chirping and twittering of birds is definitely the best wake up call.
The only area we felt they could rationalise was their food pricing. It seemed quite steep.
Having said that, it will definitely not prevent us from enjoying their hospitality at other Vilaas hotels !
