“Good property, worse management and horrible New year party 2014 arrangement”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

we took new year package 29th dec 2013 to 1st jan 2014 and from check in to check out we feel such problems that if i start mention it will took a whole web page to describe. rooms service, hospitality, hygiene, and arrangement of blanket. even we took family suit having Jacuzzi and rain shower but still we took bath with bucket and mug. as there was some problem in pressure pump. we slept at night wearing worm inner and socks as no worm blanket left.
above the all new year party - in party literally we have to stand in queue for snacks and drinks and beg for single snack, finally couldn't get sufficient. Finally one of the family took the stage and announce on loudspeakers that there is no arrangement at all and not getting food but even them management could not listen, after that there is announcement for dinner and that is such a pathetic that some of the veg and food are same which served at day time in lunch, no taste no quality and finally stones in DAAL. On the name of gala dinner they just served a food which is worse then the roadside food.

Mr kapur, owner of the property listened all and tried to solve but if management and co workers decided to ruin all the event then what a single person can do?

Room Tip: check all amenities including hot and cold water also prepare for worse hospitality.

We went in a group of 10. We reached at 6am and were respectively shown to our rooms where we were given welcome tea/coffee (As it was realllllyyy cold). Absolutely loved the rooms!! so clean and perfect. Even the washrooms were really clean. The best thing! Hot water! The best thing about this place is the FOOD! Better than any 5star or Dhaba! The food was amazing..If not for anything else, I would return for the food. In the evening it our snack time was at 7pm, but by 7 all snacks were finished, then they again made fresh snacks and tea for us, which we all really appreciated. I must say, they went above and beyond when it came to service. Their service was amazing! There is not a single flaw I can find, besides they could arrange for heaters.
But next time I go to Corbett, I am without doubt, staying in Samsara- for the location, food and service!!! :)

Room Tip: All rooms are the same, but try for front balcony rooms. They have an amazing view.

it was my regular visit with my second home Corbett,this time is chose the new resort down kosi river The samsara resort.As the name says it all the infrastructure was very good but as soon as you reach down the service by the staff it is really bad and some wrong commitments from the sales guys from delhi office.
I have stayed in almost all the resorts in Corbett and have experienced some of the greatest services from the staff that is local from nearby villages.
Some wrong commitments are :
No welcome drinks on arrivals.
No fruit basket or cookies in the room.
Food was repetitive in lunch and dinner.

Don't need to say much but last :

Its the friendly staff and people who love and care for wildlife makes a good wildlife resort with some good personalized service....Its not the infrastructure that makes the resort.

Very good location. Good food, good value for money. Service needs some improvement as the resort has just begun operation, this could be because the resort was full and the staff was eager to please everybody. Ovearall a good getaway from Delhi
