I stayed at Irai during my photography tour to Tadoba in Feb 2024 the staff and the food is top notch. The property is very beautiful and has a European feel to it. Everything here is carefully handpicked. The staff at the check-in (Rahul) and the Staff in the kitchen are extremely understanding and friendly. What I loved the most about this place is that they are very organised and always accommodating towards your needs. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. They also provide laundry service if you need. The washrooms exceeded my expectations as it was extremely clean and hygienic. On days when you have a morning safari they take note of your food preference the night before and neatly pack the food and load it into the jeep next morning. The coordination between the staff working different shifts is something to be appreciated. Overall I loved my experience here and oh! Don't forget to taste the butter kulcha during dinner it's one of the best thing I had. The food they serve is a class apart. I definitely recommend this place and I think for all my future visits to Tadoba I would 100% go for Irai.

Great resort to visit Tadoba wildlife sanctuary. Very friendly staff. Food was excellent and we all enjoyed it. Rooms were spacious. We were in cottage. One area which needs attention is bathroom which was below average and did not meet the expectation. It really needs renovation. The ratings are for mainly for food. Deepika was helpful coordinating things for us including safari. Safari was a great experience and good tiger sighting happened. I would recommend travelers to try buffer zones more than core as chances of sighting are very high. Our early checkin request post long travel did not happen and had to wait in the waiting room for 3 hrs. Overall good but could have been certainly better.

This resort has everything what a tourist demands, right from Cleanliness, Hospitality in terms of etiquettes and promptness, food, the spacious rooms. The entire arrangements of breakfast which they provide for the morning safari to the in house dinner is brilliant. The chef has amazing hands and the spread he provides for lunch and dinner is mesmerizing. After a long long time finding a reason to be critical they gave us no chance at all. Keep it up team Irai and continue the good work. You seriously know what the Customer expects from a resort for sure...

It was an amazing experience!!! Had heard so much about Tadoba and really wanted to go and could not have been happier. Not only did we see 9 tigers but our stay with Irai was FANTASTIC as well!!! Everything from checkin to stay to food was smooth and superb! The chef went out of his to prepare Jain food for our family members and some of the most delicious Jain food tasted. The room are spacious and very well furnished with the an old world charm that could not have been better.. a big shout to the wonderful wonder and helpful staff - Manager Rahul, Deepika, Chef - Suryful, Dining staff - Ganesh and Magesh, Housekeeping incharge - Prakash, Bellboy/ Sitaram and the whole team!!! They took care of everything.. Right from our packed breakfast for the safari to cold towels when we came back to food to everything. A Big 5 stars 🌟 🌟🌟🌟 🌟to the property and its wonderful staff..

Property is well maintained and service is prompt and generous. Staff attends to each guest personally. Food is excellent. Packed lunch is given for Safari rides. Mr Sahoo the manager is very polite and hospitable. I’m glad I made the choice to be at Irai- and will highly recommend it to anyone looking at a Tiger Safari at Tadoba.

One of the best resort in Moharli zone at Tadoba. The food, service and accomodation is excellent. Would like to extend a special thanks to Mr. Narayan Sahu who's the manager at Irai and works tirelessly to make sure that the guests have a hassle-free and memorable experience. Definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Tadoba. Food and service is really good. 10/10 👍

The resort is well built, close to the core gate saving time. Moreover, the manager Mr Narayan and all of the staff are excellent, always fulfilling every need with a smile and very friendly and helpful at all times. The food was also of good quality and taste. Completely worth it and leaving you wanting to come back again!

The entire trip to Tadoba Safari was arranged by IRAI resort folks. Deepika who handled my first phone call to the manager Mr Narain Sahoo, meticulously planned our entire trip. From pickup at Nagpur airport, arranged the safaris and drop back to airport. The retreat was awesome. Cottage rooms were large, clean and nice environment. Includes 3 meals, tasty and they packed breakfast for the morning safari. They even prepared special food based on what we liked. Kudos to Mr Narain who constantly checked with us to make our stay pleasant. Highly recommend
