We were looking forward to our vacation as we had plans for long to stay at Dhole's den due to great reviews and "Certificate of excellence" by TripAdvisor (you guys should so some kind of recertification as well). The location and property is no doubt good and even the staff is decent and try to help out as much as... More

Dear Sir, many thnks for your comments which we have taken very seriously and having looked into the matter we found that yes there was a mishap that evening which my staff tried to correct, albeit unsuccessfully. We are a property with just 5 rooms and yes therefore we end up on the higher side of the cost factor. I... More

I tell him that since we were told no accommodation we were on the verge of cancelling the plan, but give me 2 hours and I will talk to my wife and... More

Dhole's Den is a worthy experience, especially for those who appreciate clean modern architecture and design. The meals are also very nicely prepared, sometimes by the owner himself. While Dhole's Den is a little bit away, through the park and down some rough roads, it's definitely worth the journey and the price. The staff is amazing. They are friendly, attentive... More

This area of Bandhipur (Mangala Village) is a great area. Off the 3-4 resorts, this is a 'real' homestay and comfy place. The staff and manager (Rajesh) are nice and friendly. Rajesh, has a big hobby in Photography, and an amazing knowledge of wildlife not sure which led to which :) He also has good relation with the forest department... More

Dhole’s Den is simply the best property in Bandipur. The rooms are on the first floor and are huge and fabulous and all of them have an excellent view of the Nilgiri range. The bungalows are nice too and offer more privacy, being a bit away from the main building. The food is simple but excellent and you can have... More

After roaming around the reserve and checking out all the hotels I zeroed in on Dhole's Den. Besides being an amazing property, Dhole's Den provides an excellent getaway from city life. The view of the hills from the room, friendliness of the staff, delicious food and spacious rooms made it a fantastic stay for me. I felt safe since I... More
