I visited this property early this month. It’s got great ambience and the property is worth a visit. I would like to mention that I have been to Ranthambore many a times and stayed in different properties but the food this hotel served was 10/10 . Specially the Rajasthani dishes - lal mass, papad ki sabzi, dal - batti- churma was outstanding. Also I would like to mention the name of Mr. Battilal, he was there to help for everything and served food with warmth and professionalism. It’s a must visit property specially if you are a foodie.
We stayed 2 night at the Tigress to do safaris in Ranthambore NP. The service is excellent, they really do their best to support you and adapt to your plans. Our room was spacious, very clean and decorated with a lot of taste. The only suggestion for improvement would be the drive to get to the hotel from the main road: you have a choice of dirt tracks and sand pistes. So, don’t be surprised and continue following your GPS — you get there even if the path doesn’t look like it. Overall the experience at the Tigress is maybe not yet always 100% as refined as an established 5* hotel in a big city but definitely on the way there! We can fully recommend it for anyone who likes upscale and comfortable accommodations!
Let's start with the positives. This is a delightfully designed property with several luxury details like chandeliers, uniquely Indian paintings, and pleasant smells. The rooms were large and appointed with almost over-the-top luxuries like framed and individually lit paintings. Service was excellent from each of the staff members we came across. Both the breakfast and dinner buffets were diverse, substantial, and delicious. The same server served us for each meal: Batti Lal. He was very attentive and made sure that our drinks and plates were never empty. The evening poolside tea service was a nice touch with teas, coffees, and snacks. And the pool was a great way to cool down after an afternoon safari. However, there are several downsides to this property. The first is noticeable before you arrive: There are no paved roads to the property. That means that your transfer will need to take you down miles of very bumpy dirt roads. Due to its remote location outside of the city of Sawai Madhopur, you are reliant on the property for all food, transfer arrangements, supplies, and safari bookings once you arrive. Due to the location, shared safari vehicles often pick up at this hotel last. That can lead to the last selection of seats on the safari vehicle - although our safari guides generally would rearrange guests to put us near the front. Although air conditioning ran in our room constantly, the temperature never got below 80° F - even at night. To be fair, the outside temperature was regularly over 100° F - and topped out at 109° F. However, it was disappointing that the room wouldn't cool off further at night. The Wi-Fi was often inoperative in the room. And the construction of the room meant no cell service inside the room. So, we would need to take our phone outside to get cell service and to stream internet to be able to work remotely. Also, as is common in many Indian hotels, there were several short-lived power outages. Especially at night, these could leave us in total darkness in our room. I recommend that the property install LED lights in the room that turn on when a power outage is detected. There were also random issues such as a missing door latch lock, sparking electrical outlets, and a random enclosed outdoor area accessible directly from the shower that seems like it was supposed to be developed into something. If issues like the remote location, crummy Wi-Fi, and mediocre AC aren't a bother to you, This is a great property to consider for a safari visit to Ranthambore National Park. However, the downsides really dampened our experience at the hotel.…
Very kind service from Batti Lal. Always offered to help us, especially with food to provide us with non-spicy dishes. Very attentive to us during all our stay. Managed to spot a number of tigers. Good hotel location
