For me, it's all about the people of the place. I was here for a really quick trip and that too on the last day of the park being opened before monsoon. Gudda, the in-house naturalist waited for me outside the gate for over an hour in the heat and whisked me away ( even though we were very late)... More

Very nice resort. Well appointed rooms. Wonderful dining - both the food and their staff Walk to the rooms is memorable.. It's through a path lined with bamboo and sal trees.. We sighted wild jackals in the shrubs near our room from the balcony. Thanks Kings Lodge for the wonderful stay

Last time we missed spotting the tiger, hence, we decided to come down in June (after lot of redrawing of schedules). We were the only guest, yet the service level and courtesies extended to us by the staff was exceptional and at par... More

I stayed here a few years ago now, but it was such a wonderful experience, you feel welcomed from the minute you arrive. It has a very chilled out atmosphere and you feel very relaxed. The game drivers had wonderful knowledge of everything and anything. I will most definitely be returning, I can only wish when!

We had a great time at Kings Lodge. Naresh, our guide/naturalist had excellent knowledge of the tiger reserve - excellent sightings thanks to patience and skills of naturalist. Lovely rooms, with the feeling of seclusion, the food is amazing. Expect to put on some kgs! Great time overall. Wifi in lobby only.

Kings Lodge is slightly quirky with a lot of the rooms on stilts. The rooms are beautifully appointed with all the amenities one could wish for. It took us a little getting used to, but we loved the feeling of being above the Jungle. The staff are really well trained and the food is amazing. The Chef will produce whatever... More

We spent 4 nights at the lodge and were very well treated. All of the staff give you outstanding service and are constantly striving to help you in any way they can. The food is good and you won't go hungry. We went on several ventures into the park and our driver, Raju, took great care of us and tried... More
