Right next to the jungle one of the best hotels to stay in Ranthambore. I with my family visited the hotel in Late July with 2 more families and trip was awesome. Its a all tents property but tents are so luxurious and comfortable that they can beat most of the good hotel rooms.

From Checkin to Checkout everything was so comfortable and smooth. they make you really feel like home. they care care of you at the level you never expect. Staff remembers you by your name, things in the room were personalised as per you. we ordered food of our choice and get them as per our child needs. With Kids, you need a hotel where you can really feel like home and we get the same comfortable level there.

Every evening there is a session from a naturalist who tells you about Ranthambore and the session was really nice.

The best time in the hotel was - An Evening at Observation tower. Hotel has a 52 ft tall observation tower and we booked the same for evening snacks and cocktail. The roof was decorated with flowers. we have food and drinks there and a cool breeze flowing. really really enjoyed the evening.

we also took Oberoi’s Exclusive Jungle Safari two time during the trip and they managed the same very well. The Jeeps were well managed and have a guide with us to tell everything about jungle and animals. and we were able to see the tigers both the times.

Overall again Oberoi’s proved why they are the best in the world.

Phenomenal! its not a word we use often, but this property was by far one of our best experiences as a luxury resort stay.

While the villa comfort is great and the property is fantastic, the service is what sets them apart.

From the time of our arrival, to departure every little detail was taken care of an executed to perfection.

The reception staff was exceptionally helpful, and our villa butler was fantastic as well.

We celebrated a special occasion and this place truly made it a very memorable one.

Welcomed by the manager Ratna. She literally interacted with us on daily basis. I really don't know how she keeps up with all the guests but for this property she is a GEM.
Rooms are tents with all the modern luxuries. Double sinks, closet space, soaking tub and walk in shower. Rooms have TV and AC.
Food is amazing in the restaurant. They will try to accommodate all of the guests needs even if its not on the menu.
We were here only for TIGER Safari but our stay here was impeccable. In 2 & half days (5 drives) we got the pleasure of seeing 9 Tiger, 1 Sloth Bear & 1 Leopard. Would always recommend this park than others in India.
I would like to thank the entire team of Vanyavilas from manager to the gardener and the security staff - a BIG salute to all of you for making us feel like ROYALTY.

Oberoi Vanyavilas is a fantastic property. The staff, the service, the rooms, the food is impeccable. They never say no to anything. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable.
They have a lot of kids activities planned for the day. The pool is ideal place to hangout after your game drives. They also have a in house naturalist.. who has indepth knowledge on the subject. Very close to the entry gates of the Ranthambore National Park.
Ms.Ratna Malhotra, the GM, Chef Gurjit, Harish at the restaurant,the front desk staff of Kartik, Tanuja are just the few people who cant be thanked enough for making our stay memorable
The hotel closes down from 1st July to 1st October
Its a home away from home...Cant wait to return

Dear Guest,

We thank you immensely for your beautiful praise about The Oberoi Vanyavilās on The Trip Advisor.

Your kind words of encouragement and praise are indeed very motivating for all of us as we move towards delighting our patrons. Each luxury tent in our resort is triple canopied and comes with its own private garden, beautiful flora and fauna around and a patio with sitting arrangements to just relax and be connected to the nature.

It is our constant endeavor to create bespoke experiences for our guests which become memories for lifetime and I am truly delighted to note that Chef Gunjit, Harish at the restaurant, Kartik and Tanuja at the front desk were able to serve you well. Our people are our biggest assets and your kind and generous comments are much appreciated and have been shared with them. It has been a great source of encouragement for them and they will continue their efforts to exceed guest expectations.

The Oberoi Vanyavilās operates from October to June and is closed during July till September due to the onset of Monsoon, also part of The Ranthambhore National Park remains closed at that period.

My team and I will look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to The Oberoi Vanyavilās soon again.

Thank you and Warm regards

Ratna Malhotra

Stayed here for 3 nights in the middle of April. We were a family of 4 so had taken 2 rooms. The whole experience from arrival to departure cannot be fully explained in words. One has to experience it by coming here. From the moment we arrived the service had to be seen to be believed. Anything we needed was taken care of. Rarely do you hear a negative from the staff,they are ready to do everything if it's possible. The general manager Ratna Malhotra is a wonderful person. I believe that she is one of the main reasons that Vanyavilas is what it is today. She herself is omnipresent. Rarely have I seen someone so dedicated to not only her job but also to seeing that every guest is satisfied during their stay. Undoubtedly one of the reasons that the Oberoi group is doing so well.
The food at the restaurants is of a extremely high standard considering that they are far away from any city. The guides too are very good and knowledgeable. Rooms are like luxury tents very well maintained and a good size.
