This is an elegant home once owned by relatives of the Maharaja. It has been tastefully converted to a hotel and the decor is in keeping with the original home of the 19th century. There are lovely grounds, pool area and big wide verandahs to relax. All the staff provide excellent service and are friendly. We had to leave on...

Unmissable! A wonderful property in immaculate grounds with the best pool in India. The room was delightful, the food excellent and the staff lovely. Dining in the marquee looking out over the twinkling fairy lights in the garden was fantastic. Don't miss this cracker if you visit Jodhpur. We loved it!

Ratan Vilas Hotel ( I believe it still belongs to the Royal family ) has a bygone era charm. The standard rooms are good, but the Premium ones are really regal : the price difference is amply justified. The best one is on the first floor ( if you do not mind the stairs ). Every one is friendly, they...

The hotel has character, ambiance, wicker chairs, cut lawn, swimming pool, courtyards and is an antidote to the busy town centre. Food of very good standard and basically a nice place to stay. Worth the money and have...

The Ratan Vilas is a wonder heritage hotel offering quiet surroundings with good services. The pool area is well maintained and clean and the verandah of the hotel is a great place for a cool drink in the evening. The room we occupied was a standard room at the end of the ground complex. The room was clean but very...
