Phenomenal hotel in Jaipur

Posted Jan 7, 2018
Pros: EVERYTHING!!
Cons: Not much but perhaps some outdoor seating by the villas to enjoy the grounds.
Location: We used a private car and guide provided by the hotel to see Amber Fort, Jantar Mantar and City Palace which was wonderful.
Oberoi Rajvillas is truly one of the best hotels in the world! Our stay at the Rajviillas was the highlight of our trip to India. The property is magnificent with beautiful, expansive grounds and rooms- truly a slice of paradise in Jaipur. It is extremely well maintained, serene and immaculate. The food at the restaurants is exquisite and tasteful. But what puts the Rajvillas over the top is the service and the staff. I would rate the staff and the service they provide a 10 out of 5. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted by amazing staff that take care of your every need. They provide incredible personal touches- rose petals poured upon you from the rooftops as you arrive, a white chocolate placard made specifically for you, a flat iron they purchase specifically for you becasue you request one. The guest to staff ratio of over the top- you don’t have to lift a finger while you are there. We had an issue with our flight out of Jaipur and I cannot tell you the lengths the staff at the hotel, the hotel drivers and the Oberoi airport staff went to to get us a new flight in a very tight time window. From the moment the problem was identified to the moment we boarded our new flight, the staff stayed with us and took care of us every step of the way. We could not have managed without them and I cannot thank them enough. I would like to call out each staff member but I cannot because each and every one was incredible!!!!

PERFECTION!

Posted Dec 18, 2017
Pros: The location was perfect. Our tent was spectacular. Most of all, the warm, caring team of people who work at the hotel.
Cons: Nothing, it was PERFECT. Abhi is an excellent leader of his team, that is very apparent. His team works like a well oiled machine - consistently.
Location: The location was perfect. Far enough outside the hustle of Jaipur, close enough to enjoy everything this wonderful city has to offer.
From the moment we arrived, we were treated like Maharajas. We chose this hotel to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Being a same sex couple, I was a little nervous about this as I have read to be careful in India letting people know that you are in a same sex relationship. Nothing could be further from that at the Rajvilas, though. Our anniversary was celebrated so wonderfully. From flowers, to the rose petal bath to spelling our "Happy Anniversary" in flower petals on the floor, we could not have asked for a more perfect way to celebrate this occasion, And as if that weren't enough, we had dinner reservations off the property the night of our anniversary and decided to cancel last minute and stay on property as we had some deliveries arriving to the hotel from our day of shopping. We called the hotel and asked them to cancel and make a reservation at one of their restaurants. When we arrived for dinner, they had set us up outside under a beautiful pavilion overlooking the area that musicians and dancers performed in the evening. The area was once again decorated with candles and flowers petals. It was an anniversary we will NEVER forget. On our last night there, we experienced the elephant safari and had such a wonderful time interacting with our elephant. After that, we were taken to Mr. Oberoi's private residence, Naila Fort that was just exceptional. Thank you Akshit! We are so grateful to the team at the Oberoi Rajvilas.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Expedia and choosing to celebrate the special occasion of 5th wedding anniversary with us. The Oberoi Rajvilās is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city life and truly a place where you can find peace. The resort evokes princely Rajasthan and we are delighted to note that you carried back fond memories of your stay here. I am happy to note that cuisines served at our restaurant and dance performance were thoroughly enjoyed by you. The Naila fort is a synonym of grandeur and royal lifestyle. I am happy that you enjoyed the whole experience of the picturesque countryside of Rajasthan on an elephant followed by the picnic at the magnificent Naila fort. It is indeed a much sought after Oberoi Experience that we offer. Your compliments and appreciation about the hotel is deeply appreciated and have been communicated to all the members of our team, especially to Akshit, who is humbled by your kind comments. We hope to create memorable stays for your future visits.

A true gem

Exceptional hotel. Literally no negatives, though you will need to be prepared to get a hotel car to go anywhere of interest as hotel is about 30mins from Jaipur old city

A hidden gem

Posted Jul 10, 2016
Pros: Service, Staff, Comfort, Convenience, Hotel Grounds, Amenities, Entertainment, Choice
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
Location: Conveniently located to the international and domestic airport (15mins) and attractions (20-25min) such as Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal and City Palace.
A true credit to the Oberoi brand, this property provides all the amenities of a five-star hotel, however the experience feels somewhat like a seven-star given the personal touches, proximity to senior professionals in the hotel and passionate service driven staff. This property shows clear signs of excellent leadership from the General Manager which influences the motivated and exceptionally helpful staff to go beyond their remit. Whilst most hotels offer a welcome and departure which is memorable this hotel offers that extra something - consistency. The arrival, stay and departure provide a consistently exceptional experience. No request is too small or big, the comfort of its guests is the main priority of this property. The hotel complex is breathtaking. The natural wakeup call which is the sound of peacocks on the property grounds, the service promise to deliver food to your room within 30mins, the choice of pillows, entertainment and convenience are all a step ahead of any other hotel which I have stayed in. This property is synonymous with luxury, exceptional experience and memorable.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay at Rajvilās and taking the time to share your review on Expedia. You have been very detailed and generous in your comments. Built as a traditional Rajasthani fort in 32 acres of landscaped gardens with lots of fountains, sparkling reflection pools, moats with flowering water lilies and lotus, pergolas entwined with climbing bougainvillea, Rajvilās is indeed an oasis of peace and serenity. I am delighted to note that we were able to serve you well and thank you so much for your comments about my team, their attentiveness and thoughtfulness, kind and caring nature. I am blessed to be working with these incredible ladies and gentlemen who do everything in their capacity to ensure that all our guests only leave with exceptional guest experiences. I have passed on your kind appreciation to our entire team for whom it has been a great source of encouragement to continue in their efforts to exceed guest expectations. It is our constant endeavour to create experiences that become memories of a lifetime and I am happy to note that we were able to do that for you. Many thanks again for taking the time to write the review. We hope that you will plan another holiday with us soon!

Outstanding service. More than a 5-star hotel

Posted Jan 4, 2016
Cons: Wifi is free only for 30 minutes per day.
Location: Outside the main city of Jaipur but within 30 minutes of attractions.
Our family of four with two teenagers stayed at this hotel in December 2015 and loved the hotel, grounds, and service such that we extended our stay by one day. The rooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable. The king bed is comfortable. The grounds are like a park with peacocks roaming around and very quiet. The swimming pool is large and heated. The personal service provided at this hotel by each staff member is simply outstanding and incomparable to any other hotel we have stayed at in Europe or USA. The staff knows all guests by name and will go out of their way to provide any service you need. The food, especially the breakfast buffet (although the staff will cook essentially anything you want to eat--Indian or western) is superb. Even though the hotel was full (around 150 guests total), we hardly saw more than a few people at any one time but lots of staff who will give you immediate attention when needed. There are a lot of activities--pool, buggy ride, small playground for kids, badminton, lawn croquet, tennis, spa, demonstrations of local arts and crafts, kite flying. Would highly recommend a stay at this hotel for everyone.
