Awesome! That's the word. I was here with my friend for the weekend ... everything is splendid! The team led by Rajesh tries their best to meet and exceed your requirements. Food is simple - home type! The property is small but beautiful, can take care of a small group. 4 dholes are ready to give you company - they... More

We came for a stay for one weekend. This place is just awesome. It's luxury to us because there is no TV, it's open fresh air ( no AC ), open top bathroom, large French window overlooking the mountains, etc .. The view from the bunglaw in the morning is just breathtaking. Love the spacious bedroom, bathroom and small little... More

This is one of the best jungle experience I had among my forest stays. The overall experience at this hotel got further enhanced with sighting of tiger in the national park. This hotel kept the mood of excitement intact with good service and quiet good and clean rooms. The staff at the hotel is very helpful and they helped to... More

Very well maintained place and highly simplistic. Far away from home yet we felt we are staying at better home. Close to nature and important thing was the passion they have towards this place both owner and staff. We will visit this place again soon.

Great weekend spent at Dhole's Den! Would highly recommend this place. Jayant, Kaushik, Rajesh, Manjeet and the rest of the team made our stay there very comfortable and enjoyable. The food was excellent, service impecabble and the views were a treat to see. Looking forward to going back soon.

The place is a great retreat from the daily hustle and bustle. Very nice place to relax and spend time with family. Even my 10 yr old son enjoyed the place though they do not provide a TV or any other form of gadgets. The rooms are well conditioned even without an AC. A truely awesome and eco-friendly place for...

Normally I don't write reviews, I hate it. But my stay at the Dholes Den was so good that I make an exception. The lodge recycles 100% of his own waste. It is very quietly situated with an excellent view on the hills. Service, food etc. all is excellent, which makes it for me a favorite place to stay. Beside... More

Being our first visit to Bandipur we were very excited towards safari and had limited expectation with home stay. We chose Dhole's Den because of the feedback about them on net and after witnessing it we can surely say it is mcuh better than it is talked about over net. Thanks Dhole's Den team for making our stay one of... More

It is a really beautiful place to have a peaceful time. We had asked Jayant (the manager) for an early check in for which he promptly agreed. We reached late because of the pathetic road (construction at multiple places) from nanjangud to gundlupet. We reached 3 hours late than scheduled. The resort is around 7kms from the bandipur forest office.... More

I really enjoyed my recent visit to Dholes Den. I stayed in a deluxe room and was privileged to see lots of different varieties of birds and animals (including a tiger) on the wildlife safaris. In addition, I do urge future guests to take advantage of the free activities provided by the lodge. They are very enjoyable and help you... More
