Khem Villas provides the best experience of a truly Indian holiday in a restful , elegant resort that was once the home of the well known forest conservator Fateh Singh. Its an oasis of green calm very close to the Ranthambore sanctuary. We enjoyed staying in the luxury tents fitted with the most comfortable beds and a verandah overlooking the wild grasses and pond which is part of the property. An outdoor bath that is lit with candles in the dusk, the cool sprinklers that water the flowers and shrubs throughout the day and the spa complete the experience.
A picnic basket is packed with nimboo pain , cold towels and sandwiches for the safari.
We were lucky to spot 8 tigers apart from the rich wildlife of the region. In the evening the outdoor bar provides the space to discuss the day with the manager Manvendra and the naturalist Mital.
The food is vegetarian, delicious and fresh from the gardens of the resort.
We would love to go back soon.
