Khem Villas
Ranthambore National Park
Khem Villas is spread over 10 acres of indigenous trees, open grasslands and small water bodies. It is common to see jackals, jungle cats, hyenas, desert fox, hares etc within the camp grasslands. As it is close to the park one can sometimes see pug-marks of leopards, tiger and bears that have passed by; and sometimes if one is lucky one may even get to see them near the camp. The different habitats within the property have also created here a bird watchers paradise.

Accommodation is divided into three categories, the stress being on simplicity and locally sourced materials and skills. There are stand-alone cottages with private courtyard, a bedroom, large bathroom, an open to sky private plunge pool with an outdoor shower. There are tents erected on a wooden platform with all the modern amenities. The main building provides four bedrooms that are self contained and can be used as individual rooms or can be hired together for a small group.

The strictly vegetarian food is a selection of Indian, Western and Oriental, freshly cooked using mainly home grown organic vegetables. Even the milk is from the local farm where the cows are fed organic feed. A choice of alcoholic beverages and cocktails is available and guests can enjoy them either in the cosy bar or outside in the natural surroundings.

The spa here combines natural, holistic, health-giving treatments. There is a small plunge pool filled with fresh water to cool during the heat of the day.
