Rooms & Suites: 25 Tents
Oberoi Vanyavilas, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, is a luxury jungle resort on the edge of the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve, 180 kilometres from Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan.
The resort setting is picture-perfect with a dramatic watercourse and sun-kissed private decks. Accommodations are in well-appointed luxury tents with finely embroidered canopies, luxurious bathrooms with freestanding Victorian bathtubs and separate shower stalls and private walled gardens for sunning. The tents are placed discreetly within the 20-acre jungle estate so that guests can fully appreciate the natural peace and beauty of the location. Two restaurants serve international and Indian cuisine, and a swimming pool and luxury Spa by Banyan Tree of Thailand complete the indulgence. A watchtower provides marvellous views of the entire area and there are lectures on the regional flora and fauna. For a thrilling experience, take one of the resort's organized trips into the reserve where there are frequent tiger sightings. The 20 acres provide a remarkably peaceful and serene environment. The low laying hills and mountains of the wildlife sanctuary provide beautiful vistas. Pathways throughout the landscaped gardens. Mature lemon, mango, guava and jackfruit orchards contribute much to the overall feel of the resort. An enchanting 50 foot high stone watch-tower.
