Accommodation at the Oberoi Vanyavilas consists of 25 luxuriously appointed tents, which blend seamlessly into the jungle landscape. Each of the 790 square foot tents feature a private sitting area and outside deck, ideal for relaxing and sunbathing after a day exploring the national park.

Every tent comes with LCD television, DVD player, wireless broadband, direct dial telephone and personal mini bar.
With fresh produce taken straight from the hotel's very own kitchen garden and a delightful and varies menu of India, Thai and Western cuisine, dining at the Oberoi Vanyavilas is a real highlight. The restaurant is stylishly appointed, with hand painted frescoes adorning the walls, yet the atmosphere remains intimate and relaxed, and gorgeous inner courtyard, with central fire pit, is a superb spot to enjoy an evening meal. There's also the option to dine al fresco in the hotel grounds or in your room if you prefer.
As well as searching for the elusive tiger population and exploring the spectacular landscapes of Ranthambore, the Oberoi Vanyavilas is a wonderful place to relax and the Oberoi Spa and Fitness Tent offer guests the ideal place to unwind.
