Experience the beauty of Ranthambore with Dev Vilas
The Dev Villas resorts are one of the prime holiday retreats in the Ranthambore. The nearest airport to the resort is at Jaipur (141 km) and SawaiMadhopur Junction (8.9 km) is the nearest railway station. Tourists can take cabs from the airport and railway station to reach the venue. The distance between airport and the resort can be covered in 3 hours, while tourists can explore the beautiful terrains of Rajasthan.
The Dev Vilas built in the Indo Saracen style, this place is inspired from the traditional
Shikargah (hunting lodges) of the Rajput kings. The retreat is just 7.6 km away from Ranthambore National Park making it preferred hotel for several tourists.
The resort, built on an eco-sensitive zone, tries to do its bid for the environment. The hotel recycles water for non-consumable purposes within the property. Introduction of rainwater harvesting in the resort premises has helped in recharging the groundwater levels.
The hotel has installed special infrastructure for specially-abled guests.
Things that make Dev Vilas stand apart,
The beautiful resort, with its proximity to the forest, provides its guests a chance to live like the maharajas on hunting games. There are 21 beautiful suites and 7 tented bungalows. While decorating the rooms, management was conscious about using the local motifs and artifacts. This endeavor helped in promoting the local economy as well as ensuring the guests could experience the real flavors of Rajasthan. The suites, each in the area of 480 sqft, are decorated aesthetically offering a great view of the property. The bathrooms come with a bathtub and accompanied shower.
Living in the tented bungalow, near the poolside garden, is an experience altogether. The 480 sqft bungalow has an en-suite bath with all modern amenities. Each bungalow has its private verandah offering a splendid view of the property. Guests can soak in the beauty of nature and watch the birds roaming freely in the garden while sipping their drinks.
Dining at Audubon Room,
The elegantly arranged dining room within the beautiful Dev Vilas is a great place to have your dinners. The dining room is decorated with lithographs by J.J Audubon, the famous American naturalist, ornithologist, and painter. Guests can go for the Al Fresco dining beside the swimming pool. The restaurant serves both Indian and international cuisines. The Rajasthani dishes present the real flavors of the area and come highly recommended.
