I stayed in Bison River resort from 1st to 3rd May. We were a group of 16 people and had booked 5 rooms online. The resort is located next to River Kali with small cottages and first look of cottage from outside looked pleasing. However the excitement vanished the moment we entered the rooms. To begin with, we were allotted... More

Bison River Resort is situated in a very lovely property, very near to bank of Kali river. One can hear the river flow and its a sight to see the dense Kali river flowing. The resort is neat and maintained decently. Rooms are also maintained neatly. Food quality is good. Staff is soft spoken and cooperate well for information. Staff... More

We stayed here for 2 night, and had the best time ever spent at any other wildlife destination ever. The cottages are just awesome to stay in, much better than what they look in photographs. Also, the food was great and the staff is really friendly and helpful. Their property is wonderful, right besides the river Kali. Would definitely recommend... More

I had been there on March first week and it was a pleasant stay & There was enough water in the river for a perfect water rafting experience ( That has to be the first thing to be checked). The rooms & food are average and quite expansive w.r.t the cost. The Surroundings and the river & jungle view are... More

Where do I begin? Many many memories at our visit to Dandelli.. A wonderful drive from Pune via kolhapur, Belgaum and then Dandeli. Our favorite time of course to look out for bikers and enjoy the sounds of Harley passing by... A stark comparison on Indian roads with our Lorrie's and the Harley trying to overtake the Lorrie's on the... More

This cottage, in the middle of the jungle, is located near the water and even has a waterfall. This waterfall is very loud to hear, but the river is great. The location of Bison is great. The cottage itself is outdated, little dirty and bad maintained. Hot water has to be ordered and means that behind your cottage, a fire... More

Visited Bison River resort in last week of January, we had paid 3K per person. At this price, we would expect decent food and good customer service. Unfortunately the food provided was the worst we had eaten, the buffet didn't have much option, they only had a total of 4 dishes (including chapathi, rice). If we order any starters, it... More

We were travelling during the peak season (last week of december) and having decided just a couple of weeks before to travel to Dandeli this was the best option that we could find at such short notice. The agent who booked it damped down our expectations to such an extent that we found the place quite nice. The rooms were... More

We went to Bison River Resort in last week of Dec 2014. The place has scenic beauty. The Kali river front is very good. The resort offers many water activities. For nature travelers who wish serenity and silence, this could be disappointment. The resort is famous for school excursions. Cell Phones work intermittently between 2G and 3G. So internet and...
