Oberoi Rajvilas

Oberoi Rajvilas has been recognized as one of the world’s best hotels since it opened back in 1997. Based on the recognition and everything I read I arrived in Jaipur with high expectations.

The hotel picked me up in the airport and the arrival experience was great. The property is very beautiful and entering the property gave me an amazing feeling. A drink and towel was offered before I was escorted to my tent. Only 13 of the 70 accommodations is tents. The tent was fantastic and felt very luxurious. Comfortable bed, flat screen Tv and a freestanding Bathtub. All in a classical design. The most important thing in a hotel is always the service and Oberoi Rajvilas exceeded my expectations. It was some of the best service I’ve seen anywhere. All staff were well trained, caring and very professional. It was not only my tent or the service that made this one of my best experiences, it was the attention to details. I found many small details all the time, and that makes a difference with so many positive touches.

The food was world class as well. The breakfast was the best I’ve had since St. Regis Bali. A combination of a great buffet and great a la carte menu was excellent. The dinner was a special tasting menu of the chef, and it was outstanding. The facilities is great as well. The swimming pool area is breathtakingly beautiful, and the spa is amazing. The treatment was one of the best I’ve ever had. On a daily basis I find a lot of mistakes in the world’s best hotels, but in Oberoi Rajvilas it was hard to find one. It got a magical feeling to it combined with extraordinary service and tent.

Overall this is one of my new favorite hotels in the world. The experience was beyond my expectations and truly unique. The property is amazingly beautiful, service faultless with well trained staff and the tent feels incredible. It fully deserves to be in the top of every lists of the best hotels in the world.

My opinion: Fantastic experience.
