The Ranthambhore Bagh opened in 1998 as a modest 12-room hotel for travelers looking out for an experience in the Ranthambhore National Park. The following year we added luxury tents, with all the facilities that a modern day traveler needs. We have now evolved to a resort which caters to all kind of specialist needs and have become the favorite hangout of filming crews, photographers, naturalists, birders and tourists who desire a richer wildlife experience. If you are the kind who wants to photograph the Indian courser or identify the different individual tigers of Ranthambore then you have reached the right place.
The outdoor area in The Ranthambhore Bagh consists of three beautifully landscaped gardens with many full-grown trees, which is not a common sight in most of the hotels of Ranthambore. The tents have been pitched on large rolling, tree covered grounds. Our checklist of birds that can be seen inside the campus, mainly around the tents, has gone up to 150 and we are still counting.
Thank you for making your lodge my home away from home and all the wonderful evenings we had together.

The Ranthambhore Bagh, is a 48 bed hotel for serious wildlife and nature enthusiasts. They have 10 twin bedrooms and one family room with 4 beds. The rooms are basic, spotlessly clean, air- conditioned and are furnished using all local design elements. They also have 12 twin bed luxury tents, which are pitched on a beautifully landscaped garden. These are not your regular camping tents. They are the kind of tents that the Indian royalty used when they camped out. The only difference is that they have incorporated all the modern amenities that one expects these days, such as electricity, running hot and cold water, heating and cooling.
All the rooms are located on the first floor of the main building. The reception, library, the lounge and the office are located on the ground floor. The tents have been pitched on large rolling, tree covered grounds. There are two large lawns in the front and the back of the main hotel building. Besides these, the tented area has a feel of one large garden.
The Ranthambhore Bagh has a reputation for serving excellent food. They have a regular dining area but also serve food in the garden, so that one can watch the Magpie robin in action while having lunch. There is a fixed menu for all the meals, mainly Indian and Continental dishes.
