Dhole's Den offers 5 living spaces (2 Habitats, 2 Garden Mansions and 1 Mountain Paradise (Junior Suite). Aptly termed Habitat these are spacious each with a large bedroom, a bath with a shower and access to the balcony that offers a commanding view of the Nilgiris and the landscape of Bandipur Large glass sliding doors offer a panoramic and unhindered view of the landscape and the Niligiri Mountains. The two separate Garden Mansions offer a spacious living and bed area and are about 1200 sq.ft in area. The living, bed and the bath are placed in such a way so as to offer privacy even without too many walls or doors. These mansions can accommodate a maximum of 4 adults.The bright and friendly bath area offers a shower open to the sky and even a view to the mountains both giving a special touch of freedom. The large balcony is separated from the bed room by sliding glass shutters allowing enough light and sight from the moment you wake up. Mountain Paradise is the newest addition to our homestay. This semi-detached mansion offers the most exclusive views that Dhole's Den has to offer. It overlooks our rain water pond and has a large balcony and a set of terraces that complement the setting to offer the guest spots to stay and pause while they walk to or away from this space. The bath is connected to an outdoor area that offers again a space to not just view the landscape but provides that feeling of adventure as one steps out and is at the border of our property and enjoy more than just a window to the forest. Dhole's Den is an eco-friendly safari lodge in the true sense of the word. We were the first to try and successfully employ eco-friendly methods in the Bandipur National Park. Most of our power is green. We treat our waste water using reed beds to reduce the effluents entering the ground water to the maximum and use a a bio-digester for the disposal of kitchenwaste and fresh produce from the garden is served whenever in season. We organise Safari to the Bandipur Tiger Reserve (camera fees have to be paid extra by the guests), nature walks, village safaris. We offer a jogging track, meditation area, indoor games and outgoor games as activities. Cooking demonstration and Yoga courses upon request.

The room was beautifully done. The decor of the place has a lot of character of the owner and his family. The staff is very warm and the surroundings are peaceful. Spotted at least 12 varieties of birds near the resort which had complete electric fencing. The food was simple yet

How kid's friendly is this place?
On safety reasons because we are close to jungle and less medical facilities around we suggest that infants not be brought along. We have games and activities for kids older than 8. The things for todlers and co are to be frank limited. Thank you
