This resort is located to the north of Nagarhole National Park. It is the only quality resort if one wants to stay in the northern part of the park and is on the main road (Nagarhole Road) and right next to the forest entrance. Lots of wildlife can be seen on the main road in the forest itself, without having... More

This resort claims five star luxury. Maybe it was when it opened but sadly that is not the case now. It is in a very peaceful secure setting with extensive trees and woodland but has an air of sadness and is badly in need of repair and renovation. Check in was quick and staff friendly. We were in a villa... More

We have just returned from our 3rd stay at the Kings Sanctuary. Repeat stays.... that speaks volumes. To me the resorts greatest asset is its staff. Niharika and her staff are friendly and helpful and nothing appears too much trouble. They always go out of their way to ensure we have a good stay. We have used both the outdoor... More

The property needs serious updating--the rooms are dingy and smelly, the towels are dirty, and the linens are ripped. The food is unappetizing and there is no real wildlife on site. You have to drive out to the safari and even then we were told that it is rare to see anything. The pool and outdoor activities are very basic.
