Such a beautiful hotel really friendly staff meals excellent rooms out of this world. The wildlife tour was well worth doing as we saw a herd of elephants, surrounding area was lovely to visit although the roads were something ese and you need nerves of steel to travel on them, but it,s india so what do you expect. Fantastic.

Room Tip: Well worth a visit really beautiful hotel.

Great relaxing hotel, good food, good service and nice rooms.
We stayed in a patio room which was very nice, right beside the pool.
This hotel has all one would expect and operates at a high standard so our stay was very smooth with no issues at all. We didn't get to use the pool etc. but it did look good.
We had a few meals there and all of our group enjoyed, especially the dinner buffet.

Overall a very enjoyable stay in a nice hotel, we'd return.

Room Tip: big grounds, ask for room close to main hotel and pool.

Excellent place for a family vacation. Cosy rooms, Nice ambience. Really good service. Kids will love the pool and jacuzzi. Nice food. Affordable rates. The resort located very near to tiger reserve entrance, so it will be easy for you to access the reserve park.

Great stay. Highly recommended. Stayed two nights, kids had a blast at the pools. Breakfast was great with many options. Special mention to Pool staff and the operations manger. Whole front staff came out to wave us good bye on our departure. A memorable vacation.

The common areas (lobby, pool, grounds, etc.) are very beautiful. The staff was friendly and welcoming (staff was very attentive). The rooms were OK, but not the 5 star accommodations that we were told to expect. We were surprised that the rooms did not have A/C, but it was April so we figured it would be cool enough. The rooms did not vent well (no screens on doors/windows, so hard to open the room up in the evenings to cool it off without get lots of bugs). The ceiling fan in our room was very noisy (the helpful staff tried to fix it twice, but couldn't) which made for a less pleasant journey. If you have mobility issues, watch out because most of the rooms require climbing up or down stairs.

We stayed two nights and had a lovely room with a balcony. At night the sounds from the jungle made for a fantastic experience.
The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful.
Highly recommended.
