The spa lacks the quintessentials in terms of ambience and courtesy. Otherwise the stay and thee rooms were very well done. Don't forget to use the pool and indoor games. It's probably still the best you can choose in the vicinity

Stayed at the Fern Gir resort in June 2016 for 4 nights. Whilst the resort is most definitely not a 5 star, with a few areas that need improvement, I am rating the resort "very good" due to our overall experience and the amazing staff at the resort who more than made up for any negative aspects of our stay....

Though this resort has both conventional rooms as well as tents, the tents give a safari experience. Air conditioned, with TV and all amenities like a hotel room. This is something which adds to the forest like ambience. One can spend time at the pool or walking through the garden. Bit far from the Lion sanctuary, so own transport is... More
