The Oberoi Vanyavilas, RANTHAMBORE NATIONAL PARK, India

Nestling in the beauty of the wild is India’s leading luxury jungle resort on the edge of the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve; a perfect base from which to explore all that this region has to offer.

​Ranthambore is famous for its tigers – in fact, the Maharajas used to hunt them in the reserve – and staying at Vanyavilas feels just how we imagine a royal hunting party would have, dining in the royal lodge and sleeping in royal tents (Tents? More like top hotel suites with canvas roofs!), all with free-standing roll-top baths, finely embroidered canopies, four-posters and outside decks for contemplating tiger sightings.

The resort is picture-perfect; with fruit-bearing trees and a meandering watercourse and there re animals everywhere, too: elephants on friezes, peacocks on murals and tigers on silk walls.

Our favourites though were Lakshmi and Mala, the hotel’s resident elephants, who take guests for rides around the park.
