Oberoi Vanyavilas, India

Located beside the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan province in northwest India, Oberoi Vanyavilas offers virtually unheard of opportunities for viewing tigers in their natural habitat. For accommodations there are expansive, fully-furnished tents that would shame a New York apartment, complete with hardwood floors, full plumbing, four-poster king-size beds, and DVD and satellite TV as well broadband internet and AC – the works. There's also a full-service spa, and fitness center, as well as elephant rides and jungle safaris, but the obvious lure are those tigers – because access to the park is strictly limited be sure to book 90 days in advance.
