Less than ten minutes away from the Ranthambore National Park, The Oberoi Vanyavilas offers guests the opportunity to see Bengal tigers in the wild, while still enjoying the epitome of luxury and style. Spread across 20 acres (8 hectares) of lush, landscaped gardens, the hotel is rich with indigenous plants and birds, as well as charming lily ponds. Nestled amongst the fragrant flora are 25 luxury tents designed to reflect the majestic caravans that crossed the deserts carrying noblemen during the times of the Raj. Furnished in regal style with polished teak floorboards, an outstanding four-poster, canopied bed and embroidered interior canopies, the tent also offers a private patio and a spectacular ensuite bathroom that includes a claw-footed standalone bathtub.
After a day of exploring the natural and historic wonders of the area, guests can look forward to sampling authentic Rajasthani specialties at the hotel’s superb restaurant, followed by an after-dinner cognac in the colonial-style bar. For those wanting to pamper themselves, the luxury spa offers a wide range of Ayurveda-inspired and signature Oberoi treatments or guests can choose to simply relax by the azure waters of the temperature-controlled pool, sipping a cocktail in the shade of a parasol.
