I really want to all to know, please don't go by the pictures of this resort on the website, they are completely photoshoped, the resort is really bad, very unhygienic, the food quality is extremely bad, not worth the money at all , the staff is really rude, won't help you with anything or even take efforts to make you feel comfortable. You ask them for anything and they only tell you NO for it. The plates cutlery and so unclean , that it was so difficult to eat anything. It should rather be put as a campsite and not a resort.

It’s tempting. The staff are really polite and helpful. Just go there with your significant other and I promise you will have an experience worth a lifetime

Waterwoods is very well located. The rooms are comfortable, the food excellent and the atmosphere divine. Special mention must be made of the Staff, polite, helpful and do everything to make your visit memorable, including the gardener ! The safari entrance to Kabini from here is very well organised. The drivers of the Jeeps, are great at spotting, each vehicle has a " naturalist" from the department who gives you information about the animals, flora & fauna. Very well conducted.

Kabini is indeed a place which’ll help you to dive right into yourself and understand little bit more about you… waterwoods gives you the ambience which will help you to do so 100 times better. The staff there is helpful and attentive whenever you’ll need anything you’ll find them helping you out. There are Lots of Activities you can do which will help you to relax in the peaceful surrounding. There’s no comparison for food and rooms. In total I loved every single thing about the property and the location..!!

Hi everyone, my visit to waterwoods Kabini (located on the boarder of karnatka and kerla) with my family was a perfect getaway from the fast paced and hectic city life. There's a calm and peaceful sense all around with a senic view of Kabini river and hills from the room. The rooms are very specious and beautifully maintained with wide balcony for your personal leisure time. The food deck was another experience of having perfectly tasty food while siting in front of the river. The staff was also very cooperative and friendly.. It's a very beautifull property and I would definitely visit again!!

The resort is situated among natural reserve of kabini, so you’ll witness a variety of species of animals roaming around in the forest nearby. Best place to spend your holidays with family among nature. The food is extremely good suitable for people all over India and outside india. The staff is very helpful, friendly and genuinely make sure that everyone have a great time here. You’ll find your rooms situated right in front of kabini river and the resort also have a boat safari facility which will take you for kabini river tour as well as individual kayaking with proper safety measures (life jackets) provided to each person. In the night we had a bornfire with a clear sky full of stars and constellations to relax and converse in peace. The place is suitable for kids as it had a several fun indoor and outdoor activities ( pool, TT, trampoline etc.) and wildlife to witness and educate them about natural reserves. Overall, had a great experience and would definitely visit again!
