We travelled to Ranthambhore in October 2011 and stayed at the Khem Villas. Mrs. Usha Rathore and her staff are excellent hosts and I am writing this review especially to mention their invaluable help extended during an emergency situation. One of our family members back home took ill and we had to rush back to Jaipur to catch a flight. Within a span of half an hour (at around 10.30pm) they arranged for us to be driven to Jaipur airport (at midnight) and did the billing and packed us a breakfast snack too!!
Many many thanks to the team at Khem Villas for their hospitality.
The resort is very luxurious and the safari experience was good (we spotted one tiger). As vegetarians, we loved the food served here. The food served here is made from organic produce home grown at the resort. The resort is spread over a vast area with three lakes and spreads of farming land in between. We spotted a crocodile in 2 of the lakes.The bonfire in the evening around the lake was good to meet other people staying at the resort.The resort is spread over a vast area with three lakes and spreads of farming land in between.

Definitely a great place to stay in Ranthambhore. We definitely plan on going back sometime soon.
