Ranthambore is the national park located in the city of Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan, where you can spot the elusive tiger. Whilst visiting here you will not find too many budget hotel options but you do have some nice properties some within the sanctuary and some close by.

Farther away from the park

Ranthambore Bagh

Is a lovely rustic property with a homely feel, it serves absolutely delicious food along with Rajasthani hospitality and service. The property is 5 kms from the park and has lovely furnished rooms and also offers tented accommodation during the peak seasons. The speciality of this place is cosy common areas where you can meet other wildlife enthusiasts.

Near the park

Khem Villas

Having three types of accommodation – tents, rooms and cottages (with private plunge pools) this property is a simple and rustic approach to luxury. Situated very close to the park could spot different birds and maybe even jungle cats within the resort premise. Good food and good service only help to make your stay nice and comfortable.

Hotel Nahargarh

Situated right on the edge of the park this is an old 16th-century fortress converted into a hotel. The rooms are quite spacious and all first floor rooms have individual courtyards while the second-floor rooms have private terraces. The property offers absolutely stunning views of the national park. It is slightly expensive for what it offers, but, still a good place for a couple of nights.

Epitome of Luxury

The VanyaVilas

This is another one of the Oberoi Vilas properties and has an all tented accommodation. You will not be roughing it out at all, in fact, they are one of the most luxurious tents we have seen. Situated right next to the park if you have the budget there is no other place that we would recommend. The Library and pool bars here are great. The best part of the VanyaVilas is its landscaping and privacy given to each tent. It’s an absolutely high-end hotel experience in Ranthambore, offering a great view of the surrounding hills.

Travelling with kids or an animal lover:

There is a very interesting bear rescue facility in Agra that needs about three hours to visit. Let us know in advance if you are interested in visiting them, as we need to e-mail them.

In Season INR 42,000 onwards (approx. USD 800+ / EUR 600+), TripAdvisor Reviews
