We were very lucky as we were the only guests and Karthik and his fantastic team did everything they could to make our visit really special. We had personalised safaris and tours, including a twilight visit to the elephant sanctuary. The food was... More

I was little bit worried before confirming the booking as this was my first visit to any national park. Having a family, I thought that even though if I have to spend some amount extra,safety was the main concern. And this place was better than my expectations. I stayed here from 26th Oct till 28th Oct. Entire staff was very... More

It is only a 5 room property and that makes it very unique. You feel like home and the staff is very courteous. They take very good care of you. Whatever you order is tried and made available to you. Rooms are very big in size. It is very quiet around the resort.

The rooms continue to be sparkling clean and well maintained and the freshly cooked food is great too. There's not a lot to do around other than visit the... More
