We were ignored by the staff for the most part due to a movie star visitor. Making matters far worse was the tour vehicle broke down, yet no one was able to take our calls for assistance since they were all busy with the star. The food was great; this cook was just about to return to his native place,... More

We had a lovely and relaxing stay at Dhole's Den. The staff was extremely conscientious about providing everything we asked for, including arranging cars to and from the lodge (even making sure that our transfer to the airport could include multiple stops, so that we could see a few more sights prior to our departure). The setting is gorgeous, and... More

Last month we visited Dhole's Den with family for one night, but wish we had more !! The place was calm, serene, secluded from the hustle bustle of the usual chores. The resort is right inside the jungle but it is well fenced (electrified) and guarded from wild. Our stay was memorable thanks to the staff and management (especially Manager... More

Finally made it to this place after planning for some time to visit the reserve and was not disappointed. We reached at 1430 hrs and undertook the second safari starting at 1530 hrs. The guide Siva was good and ensured that we got placed in a jeep rather than get stuck in a bus. There was no sighting on this... More

We had been planning a trip to Bandipur tiger reserve for quite sometime and finally got an opportunity to visit it. Leaving from Bangalore at 7am and taking a detour to the sivasamundra falls, we finally reached Dhole's Den at 2.30pm. It is located inside the Bandipur Tiger reserve about 4kms from the safari booking counter. Pros: 1.Very warm and... More

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.

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.
