A great get away. Amazing property. The food and hospitality of all the people here is amazing. They try their level best to full-fill all your needs. I traveled with 2 kids and all their food wishes were fulfilled. The folk song, star gazing and pottery making are great experiences that the resort offers.

Mr Dilip and his crew are amazing and very hospitable. I felt like a royal family, thank you for great hospitality The Kipling Lodge.
Perfect and beautiful stay for family I stayed at this resort recently and had an experience beyond my expectations. The beautiful property and a team of super courteous staff was the highlight. We went on a busy weekend, and the staff was extremely occupied with a fully booked resort, yet they were always available for all of our requests and requirements.The property itself is so pretty and huge, you’ll need atleast a day to soak it in complete, and there are ample of activities to do there like pottery, star gazing etc. Do contact the front desk or Mr. Tarun (GM of the property) for the same. Ms Sangeeta is omnipresent on the property and can help you with any requirements.Coming to food, we had so many different dishes in every meal and each one of them stood out fabulously. The best part is that there are plenty options in veg and nonveg and they taste equally good! Do ask for the chef, he takes your inputs and provides exactly what you want.Pros:- beautiful property- various family activities - tasty food, vide variety- aesthetic and luxurious rooms- properly maintained large pool- courteous staff- over the top service- value for moneyCons:NONE
A luxurious getaway in Ranthambore The day we reached the resort, the staff welcomed us with the amazingly refreshing welcome drinks and the whole was available for us 24/7 till the time we checked out. A very special thanks to Mr. Tarun and Mr. Dilip for their hospitality ; Mr. Sumer (chef) who served very delicious and exotic food to us. ; Ms. Sangeeta who made our stay very enjoyable and served us hot and delicious appetizers and drinks andlast but not the least to Mr. Balram for being available at every moment and making out stay so relaxing.The ambience was simply outstanding. From the moment I stepped foot on the property, I felt transported to a place of serenity and relaxation.The resort's grounds were impeccably maintained and beautifully landscaped, with lush gardens, winding paths, and water features that created a peaceful atmosphere. The gentle breeze that flowed through the grounds carried the scents of flowers and greenery, making for an invigorating sensory experience.The resort had a very tradional vibe with the rajasthani folk song songs and dance. The guest rooms were also a delight to stay in, with comfortable beds, high-quality linens, and tasteful decor that created a cozy, inviting atmosphere. The balconies and terraces offered breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape, and the sounds of nature made for a peaceful, restful sleep. We also went to the ranthambore national park and saw extremely healthy tigers and crocodiles and alligators in the river safari which gave us immense pleasure and joy. It is a must visit place for spending a luxurious and stressful vacation on the grounds of Rajasthan and exploring it's unseen traditions and culture.

Keeping in mind the humidity and hot temperature of Rajasthan I had to plan my stay wisely, that's where this another amazing place in Ranthambore helped me : The Kipling Lodge.
