This was our first trip for a jungle safari as we wanted to see the tigers in Ranthambore Tiger Santuary. As we are from Singapore and this was our first extensive trip by road in India I wanted the best for my family. After lot...of contemplating I chose this property although it is the most expensive in this area if I am not mistaken. We were more than satisfied although we did not see the tigers but staying here, the services, hospitality, tents and the whole property itself is beyond words . The general manager Ms Ratna with her team takes personal care of all the guest. We wanted to stay more but due to cost we moved to another five star there . The diff in price is too big . The Safari please book outside due to price diff and nothing special in their services for this that one need to pay such high cost .I sincerely wish if they offer better rates we will go back to stay for few days only to enjoy the property and Oberoi hospitality.More

After the un-satisfactory review related to bookings, i am delighted to post an outstanding review. A property and its experience is as good as the people who run it .... Vanyavilas is a fantastic boutique hotel and we were taken care of by two outstanding...people Ms. Jyoti Thakur (Front Office) and Mr. Adarsh (Chief Chef). Jo planned every little thing including pick-ups/drops, jungle safari (zone and crew) , birthday celeb (wonderful aarti), multi surprise and decorations throughout the stay ...it was simply amazing. Adarsh did an outstanding job every meal with brilliant grasp of tastes and recommendation. We had great sitings at the tiger reserve and a very memorable birthday for my wife.More

I never thought I would write a bad review for my favourite hotel chain. I booked for a couple of nights to celebrate 50th birthday for my wife. The reservation is being ping-ponged between corporate office and local hotel. I asked for a call back...to just ensure that bookings are confirmed and we are able to get jungle safari done in time as its no use visiting if you don't have one. Written back couple of times (Reena Toppo) and spoken to (Abhay Rai). Nothing seems to be working.More

Situated in the periphery of Ranthambhore National Park, this hotel has always presented us with an unforgettable experience. We’ve stayed here with friends, as a couple for a romantic retreat, with our family, and every time it feels dreamlike.  Be it dining by the lake,...enjoying snacks in the pool or relishing evening drinks while watching stunning sunsets from the hotel’s observation tower, each experience is worth living and remembering. The General Manager, Ms. Ratna Malhotra, is adorable, to say the least. She’s somebody who’s always smiling, holding pleasant dialogues like good, old friends, and looking after every guest even when there is an attentive staff everywhere. The beaming and greeting faces of the workforce make your day even more lovely. And of course, flavoursome meals by Executive Chef, Adarsh, and his Sous-Chef, Shivang, proved to be yet another blessing during our stay. Since it’s always À la carte here, no food is wasted in this hotel – a practice we personally admire.” With exceptional service that makes you feel like a star, farm-to-fork experience, a safe and playful environment for the children, a giant, glamorous yet grounded tent to stay in, signature couple’s spa treatment, Yoga lessons, art walk, spice walk, star-gazing, sundowner, etc. are some of the very reasons why we came back to them to celebrate another milestone of our life.More

Visited this property for celebrations. Right from positive welcome ,good vibes ,live music, brilliant starters with great decoration ,super duper main course and specifically made cake and to top it all nice kulfi which was super delicious. This exceeded our expectations from remote location property...and was definitely worth visiting. Although we have benchmark feeling about Oberoi properties all across in terms of hospitality and food in general but this was managed even better than that and superseding our expectations. Chetan from property took absolute care and responsibility despite we were slightly late. Ultimately top class service and food. keep it up! Highly recommended for this area.More

We spent two nights at the Oberoi in Ranthambore and all we can say is WOW! What an experience! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like royalty. Starting with rose petals showered on our heads to a personal greeting from the...manager and gifts for the children, we were welcomed into the luxurious lodge. The tents are huge and immersed in a jungle atmosphere. We had a king bed with 2 kids singles in the room. It was spacious with a huge bathroom, and plenty of luggage space. The food was delicious. We were on all inclusive package. They provided us with coolers of snacks to take with us on every safari. They were especially attentive to our children. Even though there were many guests we felt like we had everyone’s full attention all the time. The service is unbeatable! The naturalists are very knowledgeable and want to teach you and educate you about the habitat and flora and fauna. We organized our safaris through an outside company. The zones typically with the most action are 1-5 and 10. The Oberoi seems to have access to the best zones and want to ensure you see tigers. After not having sightings in zone 6 and 7 with non-English speaking guides, we had to fight to get into the more active zones and for a better guide. I would recommend just booking safaris through the hotel despite the potentially higher price you may pay. If you have 4 guests or fewer, a naturalist from the hotel could also join your jeep for the safari. A highlight for us was interacting with Lakshmi, the elephant the hotel rescued. She is always waiting in front in the morning to be fed by guests. You can book an awesome excursion to bathe her and she will splash you back! It was a a great experience for our kids and us! My only feedback is that they should coordinate their non-safari activities like yoga and naturalist talk to not overlap with safaris—or have more offerings throughout the day. If we are lucky enough to come back to Ranthambore, we will undoubtedly stay at the Oberoi and for more than two nights as it would be an awesome relaxing retreat.More

The Oberoi for some reason always manages to disappoint me. Same old same old elitist mindset, selective hospitality based on how much u show off, animosity with peer hotels like Taj or others. Now let me give a few examples of the many to give...some context. Udai Vilas just stopped entertaining me once they learnt I was staying at Taj Lake palace the F&B lead stopped picking my call and the hotel staff was instructed to not forward my calls to him and this was October 2020. Then it's Vanya Vilas this time they did not have a place on any day for a non resident guest. So I guess the Oberoi Gurgaon GMs (let me not take his name here, he is one of the finer GMs that I have seen at the Oberoi's) assurances early this month was just a hollow claim that I was welcome at Oberoi's anywhere anytime, see again I was not. And you sent me an email asking for a review on trip advisor my heart hurts me not to write it because of your other hotels in the chain while I was extremely well taken care of at the Oberoi's Gurgaon during all those weeks I stayed there, but no still I can't write a good review on grounds of principal that hospitality is about consistency and not chance. This one is trivial would have never written it, but I am so upset with this chain that let me mention it.. At Wild flower the food I had ordered was extremely spicy (chilly spicy, otherwise I love spicy food) the server was very nice he took it back, however the kitchen instead of changing the food just added some water and sent it back... I was appalled but I let it at that .. it was really no point giving feedback to folks who dont get it ... so I guess it's off my chest with a promise no more Oberoi's in my life ..wonder how will I mange when my organization gives me no other choice,I guess I will choose not yo teavel and let them know why I guess.More

Another Brilliant Oberoi experience. Hospitality is definitely impeccable which is the standard Oberois set. They go out of their way to make you comfortable with No never being an option. We stayed for 3 nights for our first family trip since covid. We were a...family with our parents and young kids, but we felt safe and comfortable. Food was excellent with variety for all age groups and as we were on all meal inclusive package, it was literally everyone ordering their own meals. Tent rooms are beautiful with wonderful sit out areas, bath tub, plenty of luggage storage and privacy. Lots of peacocks around and nature walk organized by the hotel is nice. View from observatory desk is nice. They also have activities for kids daily which one can enquire about at the front desk. Kids enjoyed the artist teaching them sketching and tiger presentation. The hotel also packed tea and snacks for the safari which was very nice and also arranged for a guide for our trip to Fort and Ganesh Temple. Kids also enjoyed feeding their in house elephant Lakshmi. We were disturbed by the loud music from the main road one of the nights which we brought to their notice and they took it up with the authorities and we were able to get peaceful nights sleep the next night. All in all a great holiday even though we didn't spot the tiger, it was a wonderful break for us. Mr Praveen and his team do a great job with F&B and took very good care of us. Mr Harsh helped us with reservation and made it seamless. Ms. Ratna, the GM was also very warm and hospitable as is her entire team. Tip: be prepared to sleep early and to be woken up early by the peacocks! Fyi: all the hotel staff is fully vaccinated! Highly recommend the hotel and look forward to returning.More
