Fodor's Expert Review Oberoi Vanyavilas
Ranthambhore Rd., Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan, 322001, India Fodor's Choice
On the edge of the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, this is ideal for those who want to "camp" in sheer luxury—one of the best resorts not just in the area but in all of India. A ceremonial gateway, complete with welcoming elephants—real ones, not statues—leads to a magical lobby with beautiful frescoes and a splendid residential area, where sumptuous, romantic air-conditioned tents evoke all the magnificence of the former royal lifestyle. The tents have teakwood floors, walled gardens, private decks, and claw-footed bathtubs as well as modern conveniences like televisions, DVD players and electronic safes. The spa offers massages, scrubs, and Ayurvedic treatments. They also organize elephant rides. The resort requests you to book your jungle trips in advance.
