Iora is a fairly luxurious resort located just outside Kaziranga National Park in Assam. The infrastructure – including several types of rooms, a swimming pool, two restaurants, a bar, a gift shop, and a spa – are well beyond one’s expectations.
One of the restaurants is dedicated to Assamese food, while the other one serves a variety of cuisines. The prices are a bit steep, but then one does not really have any other options for food nearby.
The buildings are quite picturesque. The reception area looks like a gigantic cuckoo clock – if one can imagine a cuckoo as big as an elephant! Once you enter, you notice that the beams are made of bamboo, with chirruping sparrows flying in and out.
The grounds are not very large, but they are full of lawns and flowering plants. There are tea gardens around the hotel.
The staff members are polite and helpful. They take pains to organize elephant and jeep safaris to the Park, where one can see plenty of rhinos, elephants, wild buffalo, deer and a variety of birds.
