“Fantastic time”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I spent two nights at this lodge as a woman travelling on my own in late May. The food was excellent, the guides were knowledgeable and staff were very helpful, and the rooms very comfortable and clean. A great bathroom! A very peaceful environment for a rest after a fairly hectic travel itinerary. I would certianly stay here again.

Stayed here in late March 2012 after trekking. It had been pre-arranged through a Nepali agency and I was unable to find out much about the lodge before leaving Australia so I was wondering what it would be like. We have become very used to researching and choosing our own accommodation, looking at photos, reviews, etc, etc.

Anyway I needn't have worried- it was a great little place.

Arrived after a 6 hour drive from Pokhara, the roads were interesting - very dusty, pretty rugged and quite busy. The last 20km takes an hour on a dirt road. The reason for the traffic was that there was a big festival happening at the Hindu Temple in the park for a 4 day period while we were there. The landscape is dramatically different to what we have been through in Nepal so far- it is hot, flat, dry and the sky is grey with smoke from the burn off that has/is occurring.

Very friendly greeting on arrival by Kumar and the rest of his staff. We are given a drink and an orientation tour of the lodge/routine for the stay. We are in Room 1, there are 2 blocks of 4 rooms in total. There are comfortable rattan seats on the verandah. Inside the room is a double and a single bed. Carpeted floor and mat, flowers on the bedside table and a jug of filtered water as well as bottled mineral water. Safari themed decor.

The peice de resistance (???? spelling) though is the bathroom- slate floor, western toilet, shower, basin and mirror AND HOT WATER! But wait- there's more- soap, toilet paper and fluffy towels! (after the trek it seems very luxurious). It is really clean.

We are on a 3 day/ 2 night package all inclusive deal. Our first meal is lunch (now a very late one) and it is HUGE, as in 3 course- soup, main, fruit. It is the most we have had for weeks and our first meat meal in Nepal. Each meal was 3 course and really generous in quantity. There was a meal theme each night - we enjoyed the Nepali meal most.

The programme is written up for each guest on a blackboard at the bar area and was very comprehensive. It all ran very efficiently on a schedule. We enjoyed elephant bathing, an elephant safari through the bush, 2 early morning jungle/bird walks, a canoe trip and a safari jeep ride. Our wildlife sightings included monkeys- macaques and langours, rhino, several deer species, 2 croc species and an unbelievable number of birds. In fact more than 30 species of birds! This place is a birdlovers paradise. Kumar is a bird watcher and very knowledgeable, he is a great asset to the lodge. We also saw lots of butterflies, moths and other assorted bugs. Some amazing sights!

We slept well and it was quite beautiful to wake to the sounds of the birds in the morning.

In summary- a great 2 night stay- I would like to return and spend a couple more days next time.
The staff were very nice. Great experience.

We spent 4 days in this beautiful lodge, which is much more beautiful than the website photos suggest! It is surrounded by a thick banana plantation on the edge of the park.
The people working at the lodge are extremely friendly and professional. In particular our guide Kumar Giri followed us with patience and passion and he made us discover the nature and the social aspects of the region. He PERFECTLY planned the organization of all the activities and made our holiday just fantastic. I recommend in particular the excellent food that is always very accurately prepared and varied, and the great care put in food and water’s hygiene (water is always boiled and supplied in the room).
