It was a wonderful experience staying at “The Fern”. The property is excellently designed and maintained very nicely. The entire team at the resort was extremely courteous. The Chef in particular was very kind and provided more than expected. In spite of the location of the property being in Jungle, the rooms were free from any type of insects. Value for money.

Visited Fern it was unplanned visit hence was not sure if we will get the room.We opted for tented accomodation.The tent was very good and luxurious...dining area serves all kind of Vegetable food and it has lot of variety.other rooms are also excellently made.staff was friendly and helpful.Only negative point is if you wish to have Non-veg.food its not possible here.Fern Resorts serves only pure vegetarian food.
value for money and can take this option if you want a sheer luxury in Jungle

I recently travelled to The Fern. Since we were driving from Mumbai, we reached pretty late in the evening post a 15 hr drive. Exhausted we called the hotel and spoke to Mr Romol. He worked out a deal to give us the accomodation a discounted price since we were going to check in late in the evening. We stayed at the Luxury tents, must say the hotel is well maintained, beauifully landscaped. The staff is very friendly and take care of all your requirements.. Cant think of anything that i can complain about for this place.. must visit in Gir..

no complaints...it is a typical star property...offers all amenities...and the room rents are also typical star category [starting at approx INR 7000 per night].....food is great....do not expect any extra services....you will have to pay for every small thing you ask for....one more thing I observed is that since the resort people cannot be anything for your safari permits for Gir, they are not bothered about you getting the permit and do not even provide any services that make your "Gir safari" experience enjoyable and comfortable...

Room Tip: their tents are very interesting and much cozier than the rooms

The fern sasan gir is a perfect weekend getaway . Its a nice jungle resort with all modern amenities. Its close proximity to sasan town is an added advantage. Worth staying for two nights. The food is also very good and the staff is very efficient and cordial. I recommend the rooms near the swimming pool on the first floor with a view of the river on the backside of the resort. To sum up I would just say that spend a few days amongst the lions and stay at The Fern to make your stay luxurious and comfortable!!
