The owner, Mr Davey, was very gracious enough to cater to every whim & fancy of mine during my visit this month. Based on my request, he got his visiting mother, Mrs Minaben Davey, a retired sanskrit & hindi teacher to give a 2 hour fascinating discourse on chapter 16 of the Bhagavad Gita! Mr Davey also got me to... More

Tidy place. Got a free upgrade to cottage due to minor hiccup in the original room booked. Very courteous staff. The staff is aware about things around, including birds and their habitat. This property is inside jungle, and it was very refreshing to spend time in lush green pollution free environment. Guys were happy to guide us around the property.... More

I stayed here with my parents for 1-night. Apart from the guard at the gate; we were greeted by Shaka and Zulu; 2 of the 3 pet dogs at the premises. The drive to the premises is nothing short of a little adventure passing through a tiny village (Mangala) and vegetation within the forest. We were allotted Guest Room 2.... More

Dhole's Den is an experience you are likely to remember all your life. It's a wonderful property, next to the Bandipur forest. There are two kinds of stay options: deluxe rooms and independent bungalow (which was slightly more expensive). We stayed in an independent bungalow and found it to be a great decision. I will go with the positives and... More

Just got back from a wonderfully relaxing weekend at Dhole's den. Very polite & helpful staff, yummy home-cooked food (even my 7 year fussy eater said so!) and a splendid view of the mountains. Although we didn't spot a tiger, did see a lot of other interesting animals and birds. The owner is really trying to make a difference to... More

No TV, NO AC - was wondering how do we stay in such a place......was completely taken back as the day set in.
