“A piece of magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had a wonderful stay. The staff were helpful and efficient, the accommodation was clean, spacious and suited to our needs (although not ultra modern) and the food was good and there was plenty of it. We were a small group of older people who like scenery and wildlife, both of which is there in abundance. Our rooms overlooked the beautiful Kosi River and we felt relaxed and cared for. We went on 2 excursions and were lucky enough to see 2 tigers! Well done Riverside Resort for providing good service.

Room Tip: Overlook the river in a riverside suite.

Dear Guest

Thank you for choosing to stay at our resort and writing about your holiday experience on the prime tripadvisor.com. It was indeed commedable to know about spotting two Tigers during your Jeep safari which is rare to watch them in pair! Luck plays an important role to spot the Tigers in their wilderness.
It was a priviledge to have arranged your safari permits in advance and to be in service to your family. We look forward to receive your referals in the near future.

warm regards

Hello everybody, I am pleased to share my wonderful experience about our Corbett Trip, It is the best located property in this area. Staff is very friendly and goes to many extra miles to make their clients most comfortable. The food is tasty and has the menu has many variety everyday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful resort. Moreover it is pet friendly too, my kids (pets) also enjoyed the riverside ambience and tried their skills in spot fishing ...

A special word for the very friendly, efficient, soft spoken and charming Ms. Nidhi Mathur, Manager, at Delhi office of Corbett Riverside Resort. She really makes that extra effort to see that her clients stay at the Resort is really contented. Ms. Nidhi has immaculate persona and I must say that she is an asset to her Company. We wish the very best for her and her Company.

We visited this resort in the last week of February 2013, after checking out the reviews on Trip adviser. I must say it does not dis appoint you. It is one of the very good place to relax and unwind. The ambiance of the overall property is very good and the location of the restaurant is simply amazing. One can simply spend hours listening to the wonderful sound of flowing water and spot various birds too.

The service is little slow. The general housekeeping is another area which needs further improvement. But considering that it is a jungle resort one can accept these things. Most of the staff is very friendly, we played a cricket match with them on the day of arrival and we had quite a few interesting conversations with them.

Location wise the resort is little far from the entry gate for the Safaris so it is good to book the jeeps at least 30 minutes in advance before scheduled time.

Only major disappointment was the food bill which was more than our room cost for 2 days. We had been following up with the Delhi booking team a week before our visit and we had asked for APAI plan ( all meals inclusive rate instead breakfast only package), they kept on saying that they would work out a package deal and revert back which they never did. Instead they offered us a discounted buffer rate inclusive of tax which was still expensive after the discount.

Before visiting corbett, i have stayed in Bandhavgarh and Ranthambore and both the properties have been star properties where i was offered an APAI plan. It is really important to have a package deal when you are visiting such places as one would not want to go out each time for their meals.

So in order to make it a great experience for visitors, I strongly believe Riverside Resort should consider an option of AP package than CP package that they have on offer.

Whoever is planning to visit this property in near future please insist on AP package, if you opt for separate meals its really expensive. People who come with their own vehicles will not have this problem as they can easily go out whenever they want.

Room Tip: Check for offers and rates for river view rooms before making your booking. We had a garden view roo...

We thank you for your vacation time spent with us. Our rack rate with all meals for a Deluxe room is INR 8400 AP + tax which includes all buffet meals for 2 adults, the spread includes all vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes. The spread is value for money as it is not limited variety. Due to high inflation the food material cost is very high. The buffet spread includes 2 non vegetarian dishes, 1 cottage cheese dishes, seasonal vegetables and desert and so on. The online tariffs are on CP plan after certain discount. The AP per night tariffs are available online only for the long weekends. However, we do offer an American plan which includes all meals for which you are required to mail us the next itinerary to make it offline booking at special rate.

Assuring you of our best services.

I have been to this property multiple times. It is beautifully located, has great food and has a certain charm that comes from, I guess the owner and the designer.
Service is willing though a tad slow and the upkeep, if better would make this place even better than it is. It is about looking at the little things like the working of the shower, the mustiness of the carpets that are a little out of place.
However, the sound of the river and the moonlit night after a great meal makes up for all of that. I would recommend for families and groups.

Room Tip: Go for the river side suites or the rooms on top of the restaurant.

The trip was planned keeping in mind engagement activities for my 8 year old son and I must say choosing this property was the best part of our trip. The property in bang on the kosi riverside and has awesome play area for kids. They also organize horse ride for the kids. The food is awesome , even though the menu is fixed. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Overall its an awesome place to unwind with family.

Room Tip: Room 411 and 412 ...check out for rivers edge suites

- food was too delicious, especially non veg n desert.
- huge ground for playing cricket.
Cons
- presd rooms could have been much better for their look
- quality of extra bed is too bad
- no gym & spa

We thank you for your review and suggestions duly mentioning about your holiday experience with us.
Our resort did offer the Kerala massage by way of outsourcing the manpower but we had to disassociate ourselve due to very few takers hence it was not economically viable.

We assure you of better comfort during your next vacation with us.
