Sawai Madhopur Lodge – IHCL SeleQtions is the only heritage retreat amidst the wilderness of Ranthambore, one of India’s most renowned national parks and kingdom of the Royal Bengal Tiger. Spread over 16 lush green acres, it was built in 1930 as a hunting lodge for the Royal Family of Jaipur. Guests are ushered into this glamorous abode, with the promise of jungle adventures and princely legends. The crescent-shaped Art Deco mansion is a treat for period architecture fans, with vibrant colors, geometric lines, chequered floors and verandas. From the Jaipur coat of arms, royal portraits in the rooms and taxidermic wild animals on the walls, every detail evokes a majestic past, with the added luxury of modern amenities. The lush green grounds – home to a 100-year old banyan tree - have a swimming pool, fitness centre, spa, an organic garden and three state-of-the-art conference and banquet venues. The lodge is uniquely positioned to offer an authentic slice of local culture. Gourmands can savour the robust simplicity of khadmurg, a whole chicken smoked for hours in a coal pit, once the staple meal of royal hunting parties. Local musicians enthrall diners on the lush lawns each evening as anecdotes of Queen Elizabeth II & the Duke of Edinburg – former guests at the lodge – circulate. An unforgettable high tea awaits families/couples at Awanki Chowki, a former hunting post now converted into a spectacular dining spot overlooking the forest. The Ranthambore Safari is an opportunity to explore a fascinating forest ecosystem with trails, lakes, pre-historic ruins, ravines and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ranthambore Fort. The resident tigers are diurnal which assures more day sightings of these magnificent beasts than anywhere else in India. Another outstanding experience is a boat safari on the legendary Chambal River, from where guests can safely observe sunbathing gharials (native Indian crocodiles). Sawai Madhopur Lodge offers a safari vacation steeped in royal charm, where legends of adventure and indulgence come alive in a truly splendid setting.

We booked Sawai Madhopur Lodge, part of the Taj group for our stay while visiting Ranathambore. Since we were flying in to Jaipur we were not sure of the type of transport service to take to reach Ranathambore. We contacted Sawai Madhopur for assistance and Mr. Nityanand provided excellent advise and we decided to use the hotel provided transport (taxi) for airport transfers. Ms. Nandhini who helped check us in upgraded our room and gave a tour of the hotel. The check-in was seamless and relaxed. The staff took time to understand our individual dietary preferences and made our stay very comfortable. My son was even given an impromptu nature tour around the premise by where he spotted Barn owls, Monkeys, Parrots, Green Pigeons, fruit bats, etc At Breakfast and Dinner the staff regaled us with stories of tiger sightings, history of Ranthambore forts, treated us like long lost family and shared so many anecdotes that we found it quite hard to believe we were visiting for the first time. The birthday surprise arranged by the staff and my family made my day!!! A very nice gesture of a gift for my son and me shows the extent to which the staff take their service to make every guest feel special!! We will definitely be back!!! We love you Taj!!!

Sawai Madhopur Lodge run by IHCL is a real awesome place to chill and relax. The acres of land in which the hotel is situated is ideal for walks. And of course there is the safari. The staff are extremely caring and look after you like family! The food is brilliant. What is even better is the fact that it is pet friendly. Highly recommended

Sawai Madhopur Lodge is one of the most splendid property of Taj adjacent to Ranthambore Tiger reserve. Everything is so special about this hotel which made our stay one of the memorables one. Large lush green lawns, beautiful cozy rooms, delicious food, extraordinary staff right from gardeners to gate keepers to everybody present there were at our service with full dedication. At the Front office Kimmat and Nandani were always there to help us. Chef Sanjeev and Hanif were churning out mouth watering dishes. House keeping - Naveen - Ramkishan And Karan - Krishnaram from F&B never lost any opportunities to fulfill out needs. We did a lot of activities like cooking with Chef, cycling, swimming, visit to inhouse organic kitchen garden besides beautiful and relaxing stay. We would definitely visit Ramthambore again especially to stay at Taj Sawai Madhopur Lodge!!!

I had a great stay at sawai Madhopur lodge by taj. It’s a great resort with lush green open areas , well maintained , rooms are spacious. Overall property is well maintained. Facilities include - pool table , swimming pool , badminton court , TT room, spa and gymnasium So with all this I had a great time with family The staff was very courteous and responsive to all our requests , I made a special celebration request and the staff specially to mention Nandani did a terrific job in arranging the cake and decorations. Food is awesome too , I had a local Rajasthani cuisine in dinner and it gets my thumbs up as well Location wise it’s very near to main city center unlike other resorts which are far and remotely located So if you are looking for a place to stay in Ranthambore, go for it.
