Dhole's den is tucked a little away in a serene place ...away from the hustle and bustle of Bandipur NP and its never far away. Small place, fewer cottages, but lovely rooms facing the boundaries of NP, its like being in the NP itself. Its like your personal haven while still enjoying the benefits of visiting a NP. A must...

My family stayed at Dhole's Den at Bandipur last year for three days. The stay was made comfortable by the staffs there and their hospitality. Food was excellent and atmosphere was serene. Overall a very nice stay for our family. Kuppuswamy, Chennai

Unique nature experience - NP itself isn't the most spectacular, but the stay definitely is. If you visit Bandipur NP, the ecologic and very personal approach of Dholes' Den is recommendable!! Good hygienic and typical Indian food too

The house is lovely - rooms were spacious, everything was clean, we were looked after very well and the safari was well organised and an amazing experience. BUT it was way too expensive for what you get. And the food left a lot to be desired. It wasn't very tasty and there was nowhere else to eat.

It was good to spend 3 days here after overcrowded indian cities. The room is large with a terrasse and the food is good. The resort is green. Staff are hepful and know very well the environment. We learn a lot. The safari is not exceptionnel, we didn't see much.

Decent set of books to read in the common area. The food is ok. Cons:... More

For April 2013 stay: The staff is amazing here. They went above and beyond to make sure my stay was fantastic. India throws curve balls all the time with power outages, water issues and wifi coverage, the staff did their very best to ensure all guests were taken care of in those aspects. Thankfully they run their hotel on solar... More
