“memorable visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

land of lions, we were planning to visit this place since long, but it could materialize after a long. we had been to this place, after much discussion with friends, and comparing many properties in this area. after reading many reviews, in Tripadvisor, we came to conclusion, to book the rooms at Gir Jungle Lodge, and I must say it was a best decision. the response of the reservation was very prompt. the lodge is just like a jungle. we could feel like living in jungle. the food was very good, the property was well designed. the best part of the lodge, is they took care of our safari, which was denied by most of the local hotels. we could see lions, in first trip. my kids were very happy, I will come again and recommend others, to come here. we are thank full to the manager Mr. Raman Mishra, for giving best services.

Room Tip: rooms on first floor.

Gir jungle Lodge is the Best Resort in Gir with a Very Fine Location all around with Farms and natural feel itself in the lodge.. Its the Best For family Trip and The resort is large group friendly. Services Provided in the Resort is Very Good and The staff is so polite and never argue for anything even though u call them for 5 times and u have nothing much to ask for.. rooms are very well build up with surrounding farms on the backside with Chikoo and papaya and mango trees...
You can enjoy the sunrise moment from the very backside of your room. the place is still gettin new things as Renovations are going on..yes u want get to enjoy swimming pool though and that was the only problem i had. Food was the best i loved the food team and the food manager Mr.Inder. He is such a polite and lets you have the best in the menu. Inder and his team made such a quality food all the time and they even ask u for what kind of menu you want and will make the same for you..and Mr.Raman and Mr.Vasant were very helpful for early safari bookings so that we were able to have some good safari's and ya its a wildlife sanctury so dnt ask for guarantee of watching a lion please...its nature and if its your luck you will surely get it...and ya it has the best bird watching area near swimming pool where i clicked kingfishers kites and lots of other birds early wake up around 5 nd walk here nd there you will get some amazing birds to watch for sure..overall summing up everything i give it 5 stars as it provides amazing quality time and if u want a tribal dance show they do have such facility so that family time wuld be awesome :D :D :D thanx to inder bhai for such quality food :P :P :P

Room Tip: If u are large group either book a block of 4 rooms and even more then a block of 8 rooms either if...

thanks a lot sir. we are trying to give best value for money in our property. as there are lot of limitations, due to remote location of the destination. we are one of the few hotelliars, who arrange safaris for the guests, as it is tough job. 100 % people were lucky to get the permits, till today. even we try to arrange good routes, where lions are more likely to see, and good guides, too. any it is wild life, but we try our level best, to serve the purpose of visit. again thanks for the review. mukesh mehta.

Friendly service, clean rooms and good food. The staff is very helpful and ready to please. Location is close to the forest, we saw close to 6 lions and countless deer. There are lots of mango trees and surrounded by farms.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floor are bigger and better

Great place. I had been to the lodge with my family . It was booked through web site. We got very fast and convincing response from reservations. We stayed there for couple of days, did safaris, which was well organised by the hotel. We had sent our I d proof well in advance. Best thing of the lodge is, they take best care of the safari. Many hotels refused us for the advance permit, as its a big problem during high season. We were also happy with the lodge planning.the food was very basil but hygenic. It's is also a good bird watching site. We found lot of birds within lodge. We strongly recommend this hotel and would like to come again.

The Gir Jungal Lodge is the best property in Gir Sasan.. The staff was extremely knowledgeable
friendly and offered great service. Staff (in particular the naturalist at the lodge) went out of their way to ensure. we had a great stay! The food was fantastic. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. I definitely hope to return to the Gir Jungal Lodge someday soon!

The Gir Jungle Lodge is set among a sprawling mango orchard & is tastefully designed. The rooms have double balconies. While one side opens to the mango orchard, the other opens to lush wheat fields. In the cool winter evenings you get a pleasant whiff of flowers. The rooms reminded me somewhat like those of the the White Tiger resort of Bandhavgarh, small & equipped with the bare minimum.

The resort is situated some 3-4 kms from Sinh Sadan, the Forest Department guest house & the so called city centre so this makes it as a sort of disadvantage, because they have fixed meal timings & menu's. I found the catering staff helpful & even provided us a separate dish with no onion/garlic, but the hotel management cannot be trusted with your permit for entering the park. So it is advisable to manage on your own.

On the whole, it appears expensive if you compare it with other properties.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the first floor because they have double balconies & a splendid view.
