We enjoyed a couple nights at Dev Vilas during our recent tour through India. Our room was excellent, hospitality and service were great. This was our base camp for safari tours through Ranthanbhore National Park - it was very conveniently located to the trail we followed on a morning safari where we spotted and trailed a tiger. Dev Vilas was a great place to come back to at the end of the day.

Of all the places we stayed during our India tour, Dev Vilas was the most accommodating . The staff was wonderful. Each time we returned to the place, we were greeted with hot towels. Each time we returned from our safari trips, we were treated to coffee, tea, and cookies. The rooms were spacious and had 2 separate bathrooms. Wow. The food was fine. We cannot say enough good things about the staff.
