This was the best resort I had ever been to. We had a fantastic family outing on the weekend of Sankranthi festival; stayed here for 2 nights. Everything was smooth right from booking till we checked out. We started on an early Saturday morning from Bangalore and zoomed on my Hyundai Verna, took about 4 1/2 hours to reach Orange County. The roads are pathetic for the last 7 - 8 KM or so, however, all that becomes history the moment you step into Orange County which is a different world altogether. There was a warm welcome with a traditional music and "thilak" (vermilion) followed by a welcome drink. The staff were very pleasant indeed. We checked into a Jacuzzi Hut, excellent interiors with the local tribal touch. My kids had a time of their life and the younger one (just 1 1/2 years old) just refused to come out of the Jacuzzi. We didn't go for the Safari since I had taken my wife to the Safari (thru Jungle Lodges @ Kabini) earlier. However, I highly recommend both boat Safari and vehicle Safari to all the visitors. The kids enjoyed giving bath to the elephant; my elder kid sat on the back of the elephant and the elephant gave her a nice bath! There are lot of recreations one could indulge with, or just sit and relax and enjoy the calm and beautiful surroundings. The food deserves a special accolade, an enormous variety of buffet spread over breakfast/lunch/dinner. The infinity pool gives you a feeling as if you are swimming in a river! Enjoy the tribal dance arranged by the resort on alternate nights.

Steeped in local culture, and inspired in design by the Hadis (tribal villages), this picturesque resort is bordered on two sides by Kabini River. ... more less
