If you want a perfect weekend getaway, this should be ideal place. We group of four friends went for Christmas vacation and reached there crossing wilderness. We nearly reached the resort around 7 PM and it was dark. We settled there and headed to inside restaurant. Snacks were nothing worth mentioning, but they have arranged a tribal dance around a...

Not worth the money. We came to enjoy the weekend here and it turned out to be a pathetic time. Rafting experience was OK but staff were impolite. Quality of food not worth the money. Average holiday experience.

The outdoor activity incharge was so behind making money. He charges different for different people. Toilets and room bed sheets are hardly cleaned. It was stinking badly. Food was below par. Dining plates and bowls are not cleaned properly. No liquor or food stuffs sold inside. A water bottle 1 litre costs double the price. I would not recommend this... More

Slightly overpriced, however the environment was amazing. The staff was pretty helpful. Food is above average, however, if travelling with small kids, better carry some water boiling kettle along for the little ones. The water sports are outstanding, and the co-coordinators too were forthcoming. Don't miss the White water rafting experience for the world (for amateurs like me of course)...... More

Rooms are strictly average, Bit Overpriced. Food again is Average especially Non veg. Only Advantage are host of activities run by resort. Bird watching is one of them. Also Burma Bridge walk was quite good experience.

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.
