“Awesome property!!!”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Friendly and courteous staff....excellent food! We had reached a bit early for lunch and since the restaurant wasn't ready yet, they invited us to spend some time in their library...they then offered to show us around their gorgeous property....We landed up spending almost half the day there....a fab half day!

“Good Match of the Top Quality of the Hotel”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed at the Oberoi Vanyavilas so we ate at their restaurant every day and did not feel we wanted to change eating venue at all. The food was very good, quite wide range of choices, great Rajasthan speciality. The service was excellent - I especially like the garden courtyard - very romantic.

“Excellent place”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Theoretically you will be staying in a tent but in practice it is a huge room with solid brick walls which just has a tented roof. Food is excellent (try the Rajasthan specialties) and service impeccable. If you are visiting the Ranthambhore National Park (and what other reason could you have for being there?) then get the hotel to organise your safaris, don't let your travel agent do it. The reason is that the hotel can get you on the best routes which increases your chances of seeing tigers. Though the official line is that routes are allocated on a random basis that is absolutely not true - those with clout (like the big hotels and the photographic tours) bag all the good routes, leaving the punters with the rubbish ones where your chances of seeing a tiger are only slightly above those of seeing the yeti. So let the hotel do it and tell them you are a professional photographer coming to photograph the tigers and insist on being on the best routes - they may spout the official line but don't buy a word of it, tell them you know better - you will get many more sightings this way.

“Luxury Tent Experience”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We were booked through Elegant Journeys in India and had a luxury tent. It was really just a tent topper over a room, but it was really cool! The sound of the birds in the morning was quite loud, but it was supposed to be a bit of a "lodge" feeling. The pool was a delight after a dusty safari, and they even have elephants to ride for $1200.00 rupees a couple. Bring apples from your room for them, they love treats!

The Oberoi chain is heavy on security due to Mumbai problems last year, so you need to understand that there are guards everywhere and you need a reservation and identification to get in. After that mess in Mumbai, I was happy to see the security.
