Service and attention to detail don’t come more polished and impeccable in Ranthambore than at Vanyavilas. Guests stay in enormous lavish tents inspired by maharajahs’ travelling camps – which are, to all intents and purposes, villas. Expect four-poster beds with canopies, teak floors, claw-footed bathtubs and private patios.

The main hotel building lies behind an imposing entrance gate, with elegant pavilions set beside shimmering pools, housing the restaurants, spa and snooker room. There’s also a delightfully bookish bar complete with a fireplace for colder nights.

Manicured lawns stretch out around a good-sized pool and sundowners atop the property’s observation tower are the perfect way to end the day.  The gates to Ranthambore National Park – home of the region’s famed Bengal tigers – is a short drive away.

Surrounding area

Standing just beyond the fringes of Sawai Madhopur and close to Ranthambore Reserve’s entrance, Vanyavilas combines rural tranquillity and convenience.

Ranthambore’s rugged escarpment looms immediately behind, lending drama to the setting and makes the property feel even more like a prized retreat.
