This is CB Singh from Pune. I recently spent good 3 nights at this lodge. Trust me it was one of the finest hospitality I have come across so far in last 14 years of my wildlife excursion. It was just perfect and couldn't have expected any better. We were all impressed with the finesse and detailing of the lodge.... More

So here it goes. Just today i was there at black buck national park and spent the evening in the forest. I had planned for dinner at the lodge. But as soon as i got to the main gate, the watchman/guard approached us and didnt even greet us ( something you expect from the 5 * hotel they portray themselves... More

This is wonderful small resort nestled amongst wilderness close to Black-buck sanctuary. Very eco friendly. We were bunch of friends from class of 75 with family. It turned out to be far better than I had anticipated. Very tastefully done cottages in rustic but very elegant style with five star amenities. It is just wonderful sit out in the verndah... More

I had never thought that it would be such a beautiful resort. It was heaven on the earth. There are nice, spacious 14 cottages with decent interior decoration, lavish bathrooms and... More

As I said in one of my earlier reports, I am someone who finds the run down OTDC in Satpada and the RTDC in Fatehpur as a perfectly acceptable options. Five star places like the Blackbuck lodge are bound to just sweep me off my feet. Pros: - Excellent stone cottages in a great location. The view from the varandah... More

Went here for the weekend in October with some friends. The resort is just opposite the Velavadar national park. The lodge itself is so well spread out and designed according to the landscape of the area. The landscape is so different from any where in Gujarat , I believe it is one of the few remaining Grasslands in India. It... More

in the midst of wilderness, dry grasslands and after a tiring road journey, The blackbuck Lodge wafts into your senses with all the ingredients for an exotic breakaway. The warmth is nowhere close to home-away-from-home...it is much more! Large spacious cottages with tasteful interiors, lavish bathrooms and even an outdoor garden shower thrown in, makes you want to stay forever.... More

Having stayed in several lodge-type hotels in Gujarat, most of which were OK but fairly basic, we did not know what to expect as we approached Blackbuck Lodge after an exhausting journey in a cramped bus. But what a difference !! Blackbuck Lodge is simply excellent. The public areas are spacious, well-designed and food is of a very high standard... More

Everything about this place was very slick, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were greeted immediately as our car pulled up and presented with a refreshing nimbu pani. After a very quick check in we were taken to our "cottage" where our bags had already been delivered. There was plenty of space, a huge bed,... More
