Exceptional experience. For people of Gujarat, it's an African Safari's natural setting in our own backyard - of course minus the Big Five. Warm hospitality and exceptional food ! Great place to be amidst nature. Am sure to be a frequent guest. Mrugen Shah shahmrugen@gmail.com

A beautifully layed out and designed resort. The resort paid close attention to detail especially with connecting nature to the resort. It was both comfortable and elegant. We also had fantastic wildlife siting including wolf, hyena and of cause the beautiful black buck.Highly recommend the resort.

What can I say about Blackbuck Lodge? It is more like a luxury African safari camp than a place you would find in India. Set at the edge of the Blackbuck Reserve at Velavadar, the Blackbuck Lodge is a bastion of luxury where every detail has been thought of. The staff are very attentive but not in your face, the...

We stayed for 3 nights at this property. The location is ina remote village called Velavadar, about 170 kms from Ahmedabad. It is closer to Bhavnagar though - but we found that the flights to Bhavnagar were not operating at that time due to some reason. From Ahmedabad, it is a 2.5 - 3 hour drive. Once you reach this...

The resort is very well done - so much attention is paid to even the minute details like lamp shades (with blackbuck like horns ), keys etc. They provide Kama Ayurveda toiletries which speaks of the quality being offered. The cottage is kept spotlessly clean and the property in general is maintained well. We felt the cottage deserves every penny... More

this place is in Bhavnagar, Velavadar, Gujarat... It's in the midst of the black Buck wildlife sanctuary. The one and only hotel, I would say an exclusive hotel of this kind. Limited room inventory, because the owner did not want to fill the place with rooms, rather have less rooms and that wildlife experience. A classy place. Superb service and... More

We had recently visited the Blackbuck lodge for a family getaway. The property is about a 2-2.5hrs drive from Ahmedabad and is easy to find. Before arrival, we had received a couple of calls regarding our time of arrival which is rare for a property to do. Our check-in was smooth and the staff was expecting us. Moving on, the... More
