Dev Vilas Resort

Welcome to Dev Vilas, your abode during your visit to Ranthambhore National Park. The inspiration behind this venture is my mother Dev Kumari, to honor the strength and confidence instilled in me by her, the building is named Dev Vilas that means, "Abode of Dev". Set in three and a half acres of land, the building in Indo-Saracen style takes a cue from the Shikaar or hunting lodges built by the Maharajahs. It follows the traditional architectural lines, inspiring romance and adventure and is located nearest to the entrance of the National Park.

Khem Vilas Resort

Khem 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.


Nahargarh, the most luxurious hotel lies nestled at the foot hills of 'Aravali ranges' neighboring the Ranthambore National Park. Surrounded by a 16th century style fortress, Nahargarh is built like a traditional Rajput hunting palace complete with a vast “Char Bagh” or formal Mughal garden. It sure is the perfect base to explore Ranthambore from the lap of luxury filled nature. Nahargarh is a complete habitat in itself as one can see several animals and birds, performing their playful acts in the surrounding grasslands. The proximity of Nahargarh to the National Park makes it a travelers' hub. It offers the best-in-the-industry facilities for accommodation and dining. Nahargarh with its vast gardens, well appointed conference halls and luxurious accommodations is also an ideal location for hosting fairytale weddings and conferences.

How to Reach Ranthambore Tiger Reserve

  By Air :

Jaipur at 180 km is the nearest airport from Ranthambore wildlife sanctuary.

  By Rail :

Ranthambore National Park is around 11 km away from Sawai Madhopur railway station, that lies on the Delhi to Mumbai trunk route. This is by far the best way of reaching the place from Delhi, Jaipur or Kota. Best train from Delhi is the Rajdhani Express- this is the cleanest, fastest and most punctual train; hygenic meals are served aboard the train. Train departs from Nizammudin railay station in Delhi; the Sawai Madhopur stop is a short one ( 2 minutes) so be ready when your station comes. For the return to Delhi, again catch the Rajdhani- this one is coming from Mumbai and also terminates at the Nizammudin station in Delhi. Again Sawai Madhopur is a short stop.

  By Road :

A good network of buses connect Sawai Madhopur, the nearest town from Ranthambore to all the major cities within the state of Rajasthan. The frequency of direct services though is not very great. Mostly you have to hire a Car or a Taxi from Kota to Ranthambhore. Kota - Ranthambore is a Mega Highway and can be covered in 1.5 hours easily.
