Wonderful experience ! We were a group of 12 people . There is a garden in front of every cottage. Arrangements can be made for folk dance and bonfire. Would recommend to other friends too.

Access, The hotel is situated in Sawai Madhopur on the Ranthambore Road --- If travelling by road from Jaipur take a left turn as soon as you cross the railway bridge in Sawai Madhopur. You will see loads of hotels on the road, keep travelling on the same road and you will find a small sign board saying " Vatika Hotel" and that's where the Hotel is. Parking: The Hotel has no covered parking but has space to park about six to eight cars, just in front of its entrance. The premise is locked in the night with a guard standing so your car will be safe. Location: The hotel is in a very convenient location for the Ranthambore Safari. The Jeep Safari booking counter is just 5-10 minutes walk from the Hotel. Although its not required as the Hotel people helped us in getting our bookings done. We had to take the morning safary which starts at 6.30 am and the jeep came right at the hotel gate sharp at 6.30 for us to load in the gypsy and leave for the safary. The Front desk: The staff was reasonably helpful. We booked two AC Deluxe double rooms with an extra bed in one of them and when we reached the hotel at 1.30 pm, the rooms were ready, excluding the extra bed which they added in the evening (although it was just a mattress and no bed). The person at the reception gave us some good advice on planning for the sightseeing and arranged for the jeep safary in no time. The Room: The rooms were excellent, absoluetely clean and tidy with big bathrooms and hot & cold water 24*7. Overall I was extremely happy with the rom condition and cleanliness. Food & Room Service: We did not order anything fancy. Food was average to good. Service was quick. Overall: I would definitely recommend the hotel to all ... its a great place to stay and a great value for money.

This is a tricky review to write because I had a fantastic stay at Vatika - the staff are really superb, the food was wonderful and they truly made me feel at home. They'd get perfect scores except for some minor things about the facilities. The room needed a bit of maintenance (tap not working, loose screws) but I guess they'll fix everything over the summer. The dining room could be easily improved by using clean table cloths and getting a new serving tray. Some people might not like to see old stains or crumbs so close to their meal. (However the plates and cups were always clean.) It's worth mentioning that the town's electricity is unreliable - it can be a pain when the a/c goes off at the hottest time of day. And there aren't any activities on offer within Vatika itself. So come prepared with a good book or visit a nearby hotel for a swim. On the plus side, the garden is lovely and the National Park is just over the road. Vishnu helped out with booking safaris and the jeeps came to pick me up from the front gate. I saw tigers on all 4 safaris! I also recommend taking a trip to the hilltop Fort and Ganesh temple. Vatika is more like a homestay than a hotel and would suit people on a budget or couples who want some privacy. I also discovered that Vishnu pays the staff all through the summer when the park is closed, which I think is brilliant and an extra reason to support this locally owned hotel.

It was a very short stay plus due to the off season most of the dining options around the hotel were closed. Vishnu was off great help he has good knowledge of surrounding.

Passing all the resorts strung out along the road - good, bad and indifferent I was fearing the worst to be honest, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's lovely here - immaculate gardens, green lawns a view of the hills and a personal veranda, with even a drying frame so I could catch up on a bit of washing. After the safari (which was booked at the hotel when I arrived last night )- and yes we spotted a tiger- we had breakfast at a table on one of the lawns. I've only just discovered meals are included. Very good value. I would have liked fruit for breakfast as I don't eat eggs but that's only a small quibble. The other guests enjoyed their omelettes. The manager is a bit eccentric. He didn't answer any email that I sent asking for a pick up so I had to phone him - I told him the pick up driver would have to know my name or I wouldn't go with him - I'm a sole woman traveller and very used to drivers pretending to be my pick up. I put this in writing in an email and asked him to confirm he'd received it. Still no answer. I had to phone again. He assured me driver would know my name. Guess what driver didn't. I asked him to ring the hotel and yes it was fine, he was my pick up ... but it was like drawing teeth! That aside I'd recommend Varika Resort. The Safari was fun too.

Disappointing... Disappointing...

by mikey_br on February 16, 2017

We decided to stay at Vatika after reading reviews about how helpful the owner is in assisting with safari bookings. When we arrived he was indeed very friendly and said he would look after everything for us, but on the next day when we approached him about booking a safari, he was dismissive and unhelpful. Not sure if we did something to offend him, but I can't really imagine what! In the end we had to navigate the fairly complicated system of booking safaris ourselves, and were actually lucky to have managed. I would recommend signing up to the Rajasthan wildlife site and booking safaris in advance. You'll need to look up the website on TA forums as I am not allowed to publish it here. It seems impossible to get Gypsys online, which is why I waited thinking that Vatika would be able to help, but I'd recommend just booking Canters in the good zones (3 or 4) as at least then you won't get stuck with nothing. The safari that we did pre-book online was the best one we did. The one we booked last minute couldn't compare.... guide and driver were amateur hour. Not sure if it was a coincidence, but I don't think so. If you can afford it, stay in a hotel that organises their own safaris in jeeps. We were always envious seeing them zipping around! Vatika resort itself is nice enough and reasonably priced, but as I said, the service was a bit lacking, which was a shame. The owner did become very friendly again and organised us a taxi to our next stop at the last minute, but we had the distinct feeling this was mainly because he was worried that this review was coming. Unfortunately too little too late...

This is a lovely place. Clean rooms, great food and a beautiful garden. Sitting around the fire in the garden looking at the stars is amazing. Very easy access to Ranthambore. Devindra couldn't do enough for us and made it a great stay .(and we saw a tiger and bears!)

Good location , hospitality , food and stay at a very good price Good location , hospitality , food and stay at a very good price

We were 4 people and stayed last weekend. Its a small cozy peaceful resort to spend time with friends and family. Nice arrangement was made for the bonfire in the winters. Food is freshly made based on the order and is light and tasty. The staff is also helpful. Overall a great experience at a very good price. We booked hotel through online portals.

We visited for 2 Nights during first half of December. I checked reviews on TripAdvisor and called the hotel and booked directly. I informed them of my itinerary and requested them to book a room and a safari for me. I wanted to go for a Gypsy Safari but the manager advised me that it would be too costly and I was better off taking a canter. I went with the advise. I think the resort can be a bit more forthcoming by arranging to pick their customers from the station even if it were by an auto Rikshaw. They can perhaps give phone no's of a few auto drivers to their guests before they arrive which will save the customer from Hunting and Haggling with an auto driver. This is just a suggestion. The resort itself is small but preety. I would recommend any one of the two rooms on the ground floor which open out to a lawn. The room was nice , not lavish but comfortable. The cleanliness was good. They would serve hot chapatis to our table and also asked us on what we prefer for Lunch and Dinner. This personalised attention is appreciated. Nothing much to do in and around the resort which gives you an opportunity to laze around and just relax and speak with other guests or the hotel staff. All in all it was a good experience.
