Stayed here with the family in April 2015. Before getting to the lodge, we had already had positive interactions with the owner and management on mail, and things had been suitably resolved. We arrived at the lodge to find it even better than the pictures on their website. The welcome was extremely warm and the staff looked happy to have... More

A fabulous place to stay while visiting the national park. Our cottage was very well appointed, with a large bathroom and a second shower outdoors. The grounds are nicely landscaped, with planting still being done that will only improve as it matures. From our porch we had a fine view of the Blackbuck as they roam close by, visiting the...

The staff was very helpful, check in was a breeze. Rooms and bathroom have been excellently maintained and the quality of sleep was just amazing ! Did not feel like getting up in the morning for the jeep ride into the forest…and instead kept on sleeping till 9am! Food is always excellent and this time we were treated to "Bush... More

I have been to this lodge a several times now and in each season it has a pleasant surprise to offer. Not only this lodge has abundance of natural flora and fauna around but it also makes you feel like you are still in a luxurious resort in d midst of the jungle. Excellent food (try their custards). Excellent staff... More

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

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

My wife found this resort from Google and booked it for 3 nights from 28th Dec. 2014. I was quite surprised when i reached the gates of the property. 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
