We stayed at Khem Villas for two nights. On arrival we were greeted by the manager and a welcome drink. He showed us to our cottage and told us about the hotel.All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The cottage had all modern amenities, including an inside and outside bath/shower.It was magical sitting on our veranda and watching the monkeys swing through the trees in our garden. The food was vegetarian with produce grown on their own land. Although we are not vegetarians we thought the food was excellent and did not miss the meat. At night, outside the dining are fires were lit and it was very pleasant sitting atround enjoying a drink before dinner.
The owners also support the local schools, hospitals etc. This hotel is to be recommended if visiting the Ranthanbore area
