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.

Great property, well maintained. The staff was very polite right from the front desk, to the guards, chefs, buggy drivers. Each one of them kept enquiring us about our stay, if all was going fine. Also, I travelled with a toddler and the hotel was very sensitive towards making child friendly meals for my kid.

Booking was smooth and straightforward. Before arriving, we worked with the hotel staff to handle the safari booking for us on the day of arrival. They were very co-operative. Once we arrived, we were upgraded to a deluxe suite which was great! Facilities were good, kitchen staff and reception staff were helpful and responsive. We had a good time during our stay there. We stayed for 3 nights and would definitely come back in winter.

Hotel staff is very polite and helpful. Authentic local food served is far too good. It's a home far from home. View from the room makes you feel like you are in nature's lap. All the greenery takes your breath away. Must come in summer.

What a place to be! It will create an addiction and you will want to be there year on year. An epitome of service excellence. Extremely courteous, helpful and warm staff. They will pamper you to the truest essence of Atithi Devo Bhava. Specially calling the GM, Mr. Tejas Bhoite for his exemplary leadership and leading from the front. Mr. Gajendra Parikh, Mr. Nityanand, the entire restaurant, banquet staff and even the gardening staff for making us feel at home. Their guidance in terms of the safaris and expertise in this arena, left us with an amazing experience and wonderful memories (not to mention the awe inspiring photographs). Despite the presence of many big and fancy brands of hotels in the area, one must definitely stay here for the Tajness. A big thank you to everyone at the Sawai Madhopur Lodge. Looking forward to my next visit.....

Loved this place and your staff made us feel like home. The service was excellent and would oblige to any requests. The hotel need to do something about the noise. There was a wedding outside the hotel and it was loud and went on for until late into early morning hours.
