This is a lovely Jungle Lodge - the most luxurious of the three we stayed at - accommodation is charming, very well kept and managed by the staff team. Food was very good and beautifully served, we loved sitting out by the fire having pre-dinner drink and snacks. Our 'surprise dinner' was beautifully presented in one of the alternative settings...

The USP of this property is that its so in tune with nature without creating any ripples in the environment. We stayed in January and found it to be the perfect weather. The cottages on stilts are truly unique. While using local timber and minimum artificial fitments, the cottages are very luxurious. The common areas are tastefully done. The meals... More

This hotel was the highlight of our 6 week tour after many weeks of hectic traveling. It was my partners first trip to India and he was feeling very overwhelmed and exhausted by this stage. He just LOVED the quiet atmosphere, the comfort and luxury and the attentiveness of the staff. The other reviews have covered all the features of... More

We stayed in this property during the last week of October. The moment you step in the property, it takes you into a different world of concept jungle living. Rustic, earthy yet extremely clean & well maintained. Particularly impressed by how the cottage patio area and the toilets were kept clean and insect free at all times; Inspite of so... More

We stayed at Kings Lodge for 3 nights from 2nd - 7th March 2014. The room was excellent, with everything we needed, spacious and comfortable. The hospitality and food were excellent, especially the hot drinks very early in the morning before going off on morning drives into the jungle. The weather was exceptionally cold for that time of year at... More

This lodge has 18 well-space cottages, some of which are elevated on stilts. They all have verandas with recliners, aircon and fans, large comfy beds and rustic bathrooms with bath and shower. It is well-placed for safaris into the Park, be prepared to be up early to have tea and biscuits before your drive. A great breakfast is provided on... More
