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

The system here is flawless. Front gate alerts reception to your arrival so they're ready to greet you with cold flannels and a nimbu pani 30 seconds later when you roll up at the door. Check-in is very easy. The Lodges are lovely. We were in Number 4 which is fairly near reception and the dining room. They've thought of... More

Had planned to stay on the extended weekend on 15th Aug but found it all booked up. Could then get a booking confirmed on the 29th. It is best to book it from their own website. The place is pretty secluded and its is best advisable to go for the the all meal inclusive plan. The drive till the lodge... More

We visited with our friends during month of March 2014, my friends had booked it and I had no clue about the place. The place is very unique and very isolated. The approach road is very very narrow and sometimes it is very difficult for two cars to pass simultaneously. The rooms are nice and spacious with a good view... More

Absolutely loved this place. They have 14 independent cottages and as long as you don't have any noisy families visiting at the same time, this is the most peaceful resort that you can visit in the State. You have to take the all inclusive plan as there is no other place nearby to visit for lunch or dinner, unless you... More

One would always have confusion of where to spend the weekends or couple of days or may be just a night if you are in or near ahmedabad. BBL is the answer to this, just 2 hours drive from a'bad on nice bhavnagar highway this is the place created which inspite of being a standalone property in the entire area... More
