Faint aroma of lemon grass and basil welcomed us as we used the baby pink refreshing towels on our arrival, with both reception and the rooms smelling of mandarin. It's a three hour drive from Ahmedabad and we arrived a little before 12 noon, earlier than expected and the resort wasn't expecting us, but our rooms were ready and the...

Deliberately held off on the review until back from India so I can compare. BBL is definitely the best place we stayed at in India. No competition. The national park is exceptional and there are herds of blackbucks, jungle cats, and blue bulls walking through the property at all times. The bungaloes are beautiful, well kept, and immaculately clean. You...

This is an oasis. It has many birds and great black bucks in abundance. It is dry at present so would be better still at other times. I suggest at least two nights to really enjoy this location and wind down. I can recommend the massage although price was a little high compared to other similar locations. Their safaris are...

Super management that looks into all the smallest details. Although, at first glance, the design of the resort looks simple, in truth it is a hotel that has looked into every detail and provides great luxury. An unobtrusive and efficient manager looks after your every need. All the staff are well-trained, efficient and polite. The food is excellent and the...

A beautiful lodge with fantastic levels of service and accommodation. Amazing attention to detail and the food was absolutely delicious. We were lucky to see a pack of 4 wolves hunting on the game drives as well as being overwhelmed by the number of raptors around. This lodge should definitely be on your itinerary if visiting Gujarat.

Every single person from Rakesh downwards was wonderful with their super attentive, yet discreet service at all times. I must commend their training in that they are anticipative of a customer's needs. Their enthusiasm is infectious. Realizing that we were more than just casual wildlife tourists, Rakesh made the effort of assigning Siddharth for a couple of our drives. He...
