Waterwoods is the best resort we’ve been to in Kabini, out of all the other we visited. This was our second stay there, the proximity to river, staff, food, hospitality, everything is perfect! Definitely recommend. The river sports are fun and the nature is preserved in its most natural form possible!

A property is located right beside the Kabini river with an excellent view. The room was clean with a view of the river. The restaurant gives a great view of the river while you eat. The food is average. Staff members are polite and courteous. We booked a river safari at the resort itself, pick up and drop services are available for the safaris.

A gorgeous property right next to the serene backwaters of Kabini. Beautifully designed to camouflage with the surrounding nature, we were very impressed from the minute we walked into the resort. The rooms are all by the water, spacious and clean with unhindered views of the water. The dining area which is just a few meters away from the water is semi-open and beautiful . A perfect spot to enjoy a warm cup of coffee. All the meals served here were delicious with a varied spread and the staff were extremely courteous obliging to our special requests too. This was our first trip as a family of 7, post the lockdown and it was indeed a very memorable one. A special mention to the resort manager, Dhanya for her warm welcome and making us feel very comfortable and also all the staff under her care. Thank you Waterwoods for a great experience and we look forward to planning our next trip there!

Nice resort very close to the river. Great food . Good service . Enjoyed a serene day at the resort . It’s a small property. They will arrange the jungle safari from jungle lodges too, so it was convenient. No frills, no fuss, good service. Enjoyed the stay
