Reviewed 30 October 2011

good place to stay. good rooms and food. the owner of the hotel was very kind with us and share his pc with us. the only problem is about small insects that entered in rooms in the night. maybe in next travel we found and view the tiger.........

Reviewed 27 October 2011

We chose the Farm Villas on the basis of three very positive reviews on Tripadvisor & Expedia (albeit almost a year old, which should have rung alarm bells). Our experience was markedly different from that of the other reviewers; unfortunately ours was worse, not better. The stay was memorable, but for all the wrong reasons. The image and story presented on the hotel website is idyllic. Unfortunately it is an ideal, an image; not one that is rooted in reality. There was no warm welcome, or villagers tilling the fields. We certainly weren't choosing ingredients for our dinner. In our room, there was no hot water and the building experienced frequent power cuts. The food was of dubious quality and definitely overpriced - 350 rupees for lunch and dinner. The hotel talks about a buffet service; in reality you get what you are served. One evening we had sag aloo, cabbage, rice and bread; the food was cold. The second evening the menu was the remarkably similar. We should have learned our lesson but the hotel is so far from the main hotels and restaurants that we had little choice. There were wires hanging out of some of the walls. The bathroom fittings were rudimentary at best. The deluxe description felt misleading. The beautifully lit welcoming night-time photo on the website is definitely not what we experienced - on both nights we returned to find the property in complete darkness at the end of an unlit, unmarked dirt track. The hotel itself is actually still a building site (October 2011) with workers manning their tools at 7.30am making sleep impossible thereafter. The photos posted of the main building are correct, but off to the left they are building some more hotel rooms. Too much smoke and mirrors for our liking leaving us with a sour taste and a feeling that we had been miss-sold and out of pocket.

Dear Sir/Ma'am,

Thank You So much for for sharing your feedback through TripAdvisor.
We are Really Sorry For Worst Experience AT Farmvilla.

But This is to Inform All Travelers that From 1st August 2013, This Hotel is Overtaken and Managed By SHER VILAS"Wilderness Tented Resort". And Resort Management has been changed, and All Rooms Renovated and we have Added Luxury Maharaja Tents and Swimming Pool with Lots Of Other Facilities like, Evening Documentry Of Ranthambore, Rajasthani Cultaral, Folk Music.
So Travelers Please Don't Gets Confused and Please Note That This Review Doesn't Belongs To Sher Vilas "Wilderness Tented Resort" .



Kind regards,

Nice cool place tugged away from the usual lot of other hotels in ranthambore. Value for money.The villagers working here were very enthusiastic and and were prompt. Simple food. Kind of liked the " nothing artificial attitude of the staff"

When i woke up I was surprised to see a farmer tilling the field with his traditional p lough with oxen. a forgotten scene these days. The local women in their colorful attire were working in the land and it was a nice scene. In the evening the manager took me on a cycle trip of the villages near by and we saw a prayer in a local temple.



The best part is food. The local chef (a village lad) asked to pick the vegetables I wanted from the farm and he cooked spinach and egg plant that i picked. it was a new experience for a city bred guy like me.



The resort also practices responsible tourism. All the staff are from the village. They are locally trained by the resort owner and also the resort sources all its supplies for kitchen from the local village so that the villagers get the benefit.



I saw the traditional swing under the trees and the Hammocks tied in the guava orchard. The farm is full of birds and delight for bird watchers.
