Firstly, the photography of the resort needs to be reconsidered. The resort is absolutely clean and spacious. We stayed in the Special Cottage. The cottage does not come with toiletries except a lovely lavender soap. So travel prepared. The rooms are equipped with hot water kettle and drinking water. Since it is a jungle resort, please ensure you follow the rules of the place.
The staff (especially the men in the kitchen) are extremely helpful and sweet. The food is good and homely. It is not a luxury resort and any such expectations would only go against the experience. If requested, the staff goes out of their way to ensure your holiday is complete.
The resort provides guide for sight seeing and bikes for cycling around. The coracle ride is short but enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed riding our cycles. They also did up a bonfire for us. This a part of the package programme they provided us, since we were travelling on New Years.
The place has good sighting of birds and reptiles. Be careful while walking around the resort as reptiles were spotted by us. They are absolutely harmless, provided no chaos is created!
They do not have in-room service, network connectivity (unless you have Airtel) and no intercom in rooms. Also, getting there may be quite confusing (even by Google maps) so you might want to keep their landline numbers handy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 18 km from Bidar, the former Bahmani capital, lies a stretch of land where the endangered blackbuck roams free. The Blackbuck Resort is nestled cozily next to the Vilaspur Lake, close to the Honnikeri Reserve Forest. Just when you begin to adjust to the unforgiving beauty of the surroundings, the silence, as if on cue, is broken by the chorus of birds. Reminding us, that even the somber does smile. ... more less
