in Ranthambhore National Park
Villas is established on land that Goverdhan purchased in 1989
and converted into a wilderness area planting indigenous trees
and creating open grasslands and small water bodies, spread over
an area of 10 acres it has become a habitat in itself. It is
common to see jackals, jungle cats, hyenas, desert fox, hares
etc. within the camp grasslands. As it is close to the park one
can sometimes see pug-marks of leopards, tiger and bears that
have passed by and sometimes if one is lucky one may even get to
see them near the camp. The different habitats within the
property have created a bird watchers paradise. Guests view all
kinds of birds from the flocks of White Throats among the
grasslands to the Sparrow hawks hovering in the sky, the Black
Winged Kites in the trees and the Moore Hen near the water hole.
The peace and tranquillity offered at camp is unlike that of any
other place in Ranthambhore.
Accommodation is divided into three categories and designed
keeping in mind that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication;
great pains have been taken to use locally sourced materials and
skills. The camp is designed to provide an authentic experience
that is unfussy, functional yet special.
The luxury resort is set over 20 acres of land, which has over
1500 trees, which includes orchards of mango, lemon, guava and
Indian gooseberry. There are pathways throughout the property
with bridges crossing an 850ft. long water-body with lotuses and
colorful fish. Vanyavilas is the first luxury jungle resort in
India and it consists of 25 luxury air-conditioned tents with
their own private walled garden located discreetly so as to
ensure maximum privacy. From virtually all tents, views of the
nearby hills are afforded. The observation tower at the far end
of the property provides a marvelous view of the entire area.
