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.

Rip-off is the first thing that comes to mind when one says Dhole's Den. I know that most of the reviews are positive so I think this review is important to present other guests with a more balanced opinion. Pros: The bungalows were excellently furnished. Decent set of books to read in the common area. The food is ok. Cons:... More

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

Dholes Den was booked after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and I wasn't disappointed. Nice room, excellent food and service with a heart.

This time it was our 7th Marriage anniversary and we decided to have a quick trip over the weekend. Dhole's Den is tried and tested and offers no surprises at all. It has a great view, great rooms, great staff, great liquor, great ambience, great outdoor fireplace. I love the massive open balcony and the massive bathroom under the sky.... More
