We had been to Bison river resort in Sept 2013. The resort is very good. Food is good. Rooms require some maintenance and cleanliness. The water activities are enjoyable. River rafting is highly enjoyable and thrilling. Two nights stay is a perfect package for this resort.

Good resort in a very green location beside a flowing river with rapids. We had a conference there and enjoyed our stay. The food was excellent. Conference arrangements were also quite good. However, the room service lacked as the rooms were not cleaned during the two day stay. The conference room was slightly smal for 35 personnel. It is ideal... More

We stayed at Bison for 2 nights in December, primarily because it was peak season and most places were sold out. The rooms were very bare and a let down, though they tried selling it as a jungle experience. The food was very good and the resort had organised a barbecue one evening. The location is on the riverbanks and... More

The most peaceful resort I have ever come across. The rooms, bathrooms are clean and everything about the resort is absolutely fantastic. Staff are very friendly and very attentive. Believe me the initial 29 kms to reach the resort is dreadful but once you reach the resort the serenity is wonderful. I feel they spoil you with the huge spread... More

We stayed 2 nights at Bison river resort immediately after River Tern, another Indian Adventure property and boy, is this huge or what! Very spacious and well designed, Bison River Resort was an unforgettable experience. Of course, one reason could be that we saw a leopard on our first afternoon drive - after having missed seeing a tiger across many... More

Best part about the resort is its location. Bird watchers paradise. They have a machan for this purpose right on the banks of kali river. Resort is well organised, helpful and friendly staff.
