Travel and Leisure Top 5 Hotels for 2011

Oberoi Vanyavilas
Rajasthan, India
25 luxe jungle tents, a fresco-painted haveli main lodge, and a 3-room spa on 20 acres next to Ranthambore National Park & Tiger Reserve.
Insider Tip: Visit the crafts stores that sell block-print textiles in the nearby town—proceeds support local schools.
Cost: From $885

Triple Creek Ranch
Darby, Montana
Adults-only mountain retreat on thousands of acres with recently refreshed log cabins (wood-burning fireplaces; hot tubs).
Insider Tip: Take a free birding and nature tour in the Bitterroot Valley to look for peregrine falcons, hawks, and eagles, as well as elk, moose, and possibly even a bear or wolf.

Fairmont Mara Safari Club
Masai Mara, Kenya
50 renovated tents on a Mara River oxbow (prime for hippo-viewing) known for activities including balloon safaris.
Insider Tip: Accompany a staff guide on a birding walk through camp—more than 70 species inhabit the area.
Cost: $429 (includes two game drives)
San Ysidro Ranch, A Rosewood Resort
Santa Barbara, California
500 bucolic acres and clapboard cottages for only 90 guests; a renovation updated the rooms and restaurants and added a wine cellar.

Cost: $650
Oberio Amarvilas
Agra, India
Moghul-themed palace mirroring the nearby Taj Mahal—all Moorish archways, intricate pavilions, and fountained courtyards.
