Tigress@Ghosri was recommended by a friend and has been on our list of places for 1.5 years now. Finally managed to go last weekend for 3 nights. The villa is very aesthetically decorated with all conveniences. The best compliment is from our 7 year old (who is a fussy eater), "food is very nice". Our kid tried most of the dishes. This is the very first time at any place we stayed in the last 6 years. The room we stayed in was pool facing and is spacious and very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, courteous and available all the time. They packed small bag with tea and biscuits for the morning safari. So, had a nice little picnic. In the evenings, they have a good collection of DVDs on wildlife to watch using their awesome projector and sound system. And ofcourse, the terrace has nice view of night sky with thousands of fire flies to watch. It was blissful with no mobile network and internet. Very weak internet is provided but it is worth not wasting time in such a beautiful place. Swimming pool was added attraction for those who can't sit idle ( :-) ). It was being cleaned so we could use it only on one day. We could walk around the villa. I would put Tigress@Ghosri among the best places we stayed like The Machan near Lonavala and Lake Palace in Thekkady, Kerala. Nature, caring staff, disconnected from the rest of world (for those who prefer to), great food, excellent facilities,... you can't ask for more.

“The Tigress of India”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

Tadoba is a place if you want to see a tiger. Not Kanha, Not Karmajhari, Not Jim Corbett. Little known earlier, but now frequented by many, Tadoba stands out in tiger population, whether in the core area or the buffer zone. The entire Tadoba wildlife sanctuary abounds in Tigers, Leopards, Sloth Bears, Bison's, Wild Dogs and the entire plethora of wild life you want to see. There are two gates to the core area of the sanctuary, Moharli and Khutwanda. Please note that when you do online bookings, you end up booking the many buffer area's in which the tiger sightings are less.
Now enter the Tigress of India.
A resort, more of a homestay, promoted by a couple who are ardent wildlife fans and who have spent their life promoting wildlife.
The resort comes with air-conditioned spacious room. Excellent all inclusive food which is served with a smile. A staff which is at your beck and call all the time. Pricey? a wee bit given the location, but then if everything is good, you swallow it with a pinch of salt !
Located near Khutwanda Gate, the promoters keep grumbling about availability of impromptu safari's to the core area, but go out of their way to arrange one for you. The food is delectable. The service outstanding. The resort has a small outdoor pool. A watering hole adjacent to the resort with a camera trap which you can view with carnivores visiting 24/7.
Now answer a simple question? ooops a few questions ?
1. You get the 1/10 chance of spotting a tiger
2. You get homely food
3. You get outstanding service and staff courtesy
4. You get spacious and comfortable rooms
5. You are 2.5 to 3 hours away from a good connected airport
6. You are wildlife crazy (my son is)
Then go to Tigress@Ghosri. That's the resort you need to visit next

“Incredible experience living comfortably within the forest”
Reviewed November 15, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Short Review:
Fantastic experience living very comfortably in the middle of the forest in a resort manned by friendly and helpful staff serving simple but delicious food.

Long Review:
Location - 10/10
This is the USP. No stay in Tadoba can match it. Located just a couple of minutes from Kutvanda Gate, Ghosri is right in the midst of untamed forest, with wild animals freely roaming around (and inside!) the house boundaries. It is fenced only at the back near the swimming pool and sit out so you can sit comfortably and watch animals come to the waterhole. I believe it also falls within the overlapping territories of two famous male tigers, Katezari Male and Gabbar.

Comfort - 8/10
Not many stays within forests can boast the relative luxury that Ghosri offers. Most of the others are government run and hence run-down, but Ghosri can hold its own even against the higher end resorts like Irai.

Cleanliness - 8/10
Clean rooms and toilets. No insects or lizards inside rooms!

Staff - 9/10
Unfortunately, the owner, Mrs.Poonam, was travelling when we visited Ghosri and wasn't able to meet us so Mr.Espi, the extremely helpful manager, was our host. He might seem a little expressionless and zoned out at times but once we learnt how he had recovered and fought back from a near fatal accident, we had nothing but respect for the gentle and soft spoken Espi Saab!
The other staff was very hands on and did a great job catering to our needs. (I'd asked for their names but unfortunately can't remember them now.. 2 guys and the lady cook) They were always on time with cleaning and food.
At night, I needed something from the car that was parked right outside the front door, so I went to get it (which was technically against the rules!) and I was quickly approached by one of the panicked staff. What really impressed me was the friendly and humourous way in which he re-explained the rules and accompanied me to the car. That kind of friendly professionalism is unfortunately very rare in India.

Food - 8/10
You're not going to get an enormous variety in the buffet. But what you get is simple but DELICIOUS home cooked food made Halal for us on request. They even took perfect care of an egg allergy that one of our group members had. The staff packed snacks for us to take on safari every day. Every meal during our stay was of fantastic quality! No complaints.

Amenities - 10/10
Extremely clean and well maintained swimming pool with comfortable seating around it. The backside balcony sit-out was our favourite spot where we spent all day and night listening to the sounds of the jungle. The other selling point of the resort for us was the live video feed from the neighbouring waterhole right to the screen in the comfort of the living room. Although no animals visited it during our stay (obviously because it was right after monsoon), Espi Saab showed us some recordings from the dryer months when leopards, wild dogs, chital, etc. are regular visitors.
Another aspect that really added to the experience was the documentaries that were shown to us on the projector. They were relevant (shot in Tadoba), educational and entertaining.

Tips:
1) Opt for a jungle walk instead of a safari. While you may not see any wild animals, it's a good experience to walk through tiger territory and see the landscape from on top of a hill whilst learning about the state and culture of people and animals from the local guides.
2) Absolutely DO NOT stay at Ghosri if you're going to complain about the wild nature of the stay. It is what it is supposed to be... a fantastic and unparalleled jungle experience. You need to be aware that you will be in an unfenced house in the middle of untamed jungle.. you WILL have wild visitors around the house (and that's the point!) For example, we saw multiple small snakes within the boundaries (one eating a frog right under our parked car!), don't expect the staff to kill or get rid of them for you.
3)Try to stay up during the night to get the full experience of Ghosri. Although they are very strict about the use of torches to spot animals (unfortunately!), listening to the jungle sounds is sometimes even more enjoyable than having a tiger walk next to your gypsy during a safari. We heard chital alarm calls, followed by the calling of wild dogs and then the screech of a wild boar which was enough for us to visualize exactly what was happening. We were loving being 'one with nature'.. and then the hair on the back of our neck stood up. From somewhere deep within the forest, we heard the unmistakable low growl of a tiger.

Hello Zain,

Thank you for such a wonderful and detailed review.

Tigress@ghosri is indeed pure wilderness and it does offer so much more than the gypsy safaris. The joy of hearing wild calls after dark close to the rooms is unforgettable.

We look forward to having you stay with us again.
