Not sure what to say - everything was just so perfect, all the aspects. The property is huge and beautiful. Lot of activities for kids as well. We were given upgraded rooms, so that was a surprising bonus as well :) Highly recommended!!

This hotel is (rightly) geared towards those who are staying in Sawai for the Ranthanbore Tiger reserve safaris, and which the hotel staff managed with above average efficiency. The rooms are the usual Taj standard. However, food should NOT be the reason why you stay at this hotel (or any Taj that largely caters to foreign tourists): it is both...

I visited this old time hunting lodge of royals with group of friends from 14th to 16th April and am extremely happy with the stay at Taj Sawai Madhopur Lodge. In addition to the jungle safari, they have lot to offer in terms of activities like Magic show, camel cart ride, cultural performance during dinner, swimming pool, badminton, carrom, Billiards,...

A short and smooth three hour drive from Jaipur airport brought us to this quaint town of Sawai Madhopur and home to the hunting lodge of the royal family of the past and now the Taj. The immaculate lawns and well grown trees attract a number of birds so the wildlife and bird spotting starts at the Taj itself. The...

The lodge had great décor the a tiger viewing event. The food was very good. The accommodations were great. The room size was large. We did see Bengal tigers on our first day outing. We did a total of three visit to the national park but only saw the tigers on our first visit.

Vivanta is Ranthambore offers a rustic but luxury experience. Service is phenomenal and five star quality. It's quaint old property but with all mod cons. The thing to keep in mind is that there is no room service and meals are usually buffet with no ala carte available. But overall you will not be disappointed with a stay here.

Staying at this hotel was a wonderful experience. The staff were extremely attentive and the room was of exceptional quality. The whole setting was one of tranquillity in a busy vibrant country. We loved it.

This should be a great 'boutique' style hotel - but falls way short of what should be expected of a Taj property and the price paid. The quality and variety of the food on offer is poor. The staff seem to lack leadership and whilst all very friendly do not deliver the quality of service expected and experienced at other...
