My wife and I spent 2 nights, 21-22May 2017 at this lodge. This is a mid budget resort. The rooms are basic but very clean and tidy. Yes there is A/C.( essential with tempratures of 36C/97F). The food was fantastic. They have menu, but when they have only a few guests they will serve you great Nepalese food. My wife...

The lodge is in Sauraha and is not too bad, compared to other lodges there. Not the luxury of a Barahi Jungle Resort etc. That was to be expected. I guess some of the dissapointment came from the activities. The walk was within the community forest, not the park itself (that was an extra), The rooms are not spartan, and...

It is Winter, what better time to visit? We are the only customer at the lodge and it feels like we are staying with family rather than a hotel. The hotel manager is also our guide for jungle walks. I have read many reviews about people coming to Chitwan and not seeing anything, we have been extremely lucky. Giant hornbills,...

All meals were buffet style and quite enjoyable. Eggs were not cooked to order at breakfast. There was a large comfortable open style sitting area next to...

We visited with a small group and the lodge was simple, but good. The rooms were comfortable and food service good. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable; we did a local walk, canoe trip, and jeep safari (their vehicles appear to be brand new too), plus they had an evening program one night for all guests with traditional music and...

“Some of the rooms are attached in a row - I had an individual "chalet" and thus no noise from either side. Probably the better choice.”
