This property has a huge area, but there are only 4 accommodation. This is the best part I liked. There are huge open space... More

One of the best holiday's that I have ever had. The hospitality is so good that I want to visit there back just for that. The place is well maintained and the rooms are neat, tidy, well-lit and spacious. The food was also good.

The location of the place, bungalow and the sheer number of birds you can see all around from the extension just outside are all great. Staff were courteous enough and quite efficient as well. Also, big plus point for being self sufficient on power with 40+ solar panels installed. Food was not up to the standard. And even more bizarre... More

The Den was very peaceful and the room was very large, with a balcony that enabled me to sit and watch the birds. The location was great for visiting Bandipur Tiger Reserve and the surrounding villages and temples.
