But not value for money. Tata Sky not operational when checked-in. Star Sports (English) not subscribed to in Tata Sky package, as also a few Sony Sports channels. TV reception not quite good. Intercom not functional. Water heater took 30 minutes to be fixed, rooms having swings outside not available. When tariff is close to Rs 10k per day, above amenities are taken for granted to be available.

One of the best resorts in littel rann Gujarat with gorgeous doonga (hut like cottages). Loved staying here, the walls have beautiful art work and mirror work of Gujarat. Food is super cool and they serve both veg and non veg buffets. It is a charming little resort with many beautiful locations for photo shoots. For more details you can see some reels i made on Instagram msjunebug0 💯

This is one of the few good places around LRK to stay in more comfort and explore. The location is excellent and well connected with high ways. It takes about 2 hours from AMD airport. The place is amazing. It is a huge property with ample access to the guests. The resort is pet friendly and has a no of lovely dogs around. More interestingly, they have a stable full of horses. The place is well maintained and quite magical. The rooms are big, spacious with a clean toilet and required amenities. The look from the outside is a bit rustic but believe me, they offer one of the best quality accommodation. The food and hospitality are great. The service and staff are well trained and courteous. You can book a safari directly with them, and do your route planning by yourself. They provide a vehicle (open four-wheeled drive) with a driver cum guide. During morning safari, they also provide packed breakfast with you. The booking process is smooth, though there is no direct online booking through their website. However, they have all the necessary information there to complete the booking. The only low point is the value for money. The price is slightly on the costlier side compared to what you get. The safari price is additional, which is high and the park entrance fee is not included in the same. In my opinion, a safari should be included for free if someone books a two-night package with them. Expect this, the resort is excellent on all fronts.

That's awesome and fantastic hospitality experience after this Corona pandemic. Safari ride and the Asiatic wild Ass (Onager) is main attraction. With Food, staff and all amenities are the best. That is really peaceful and luxury rest destination with nature experience.

We had an amazing day at Rann Riders, Dassada, Gujrat due to the excellent staff of this resort specially Mr. Harish, the gentleman has so many fascinating stories to share that you could sit listening to him for hours. This boutique style resort backs on to desert forest, giving you the feeling of open space and tranquility (see photos of the resort). We got a charming bhunga, embellished with Gujarati mud art and mirror work on the white walls ( they upgraded our room without any extra charges). The lunch and dinner are well prepared and it is delicious. It is in Little Run of Kutch (between the Great Rann of Kutch and Ahmedabad lies the Little Rann of kutch ), so once you get there you can participate in lots of activities. I’d recommend hiring their Jungle Safari and easy sightings of flamingos is a great bonus. It is a bird watchers' paradise. There are thousands of flamingos, cranes, ducks and many birds of prey like eagles, falcons etc. There are salt making villages-must visit, they talk about how salt is produced and the varying landscapes of this part of Kutch as seasons change. It is a wild Ass sanctuary, so you will surely get to see them. You can also see desert fox, rabbits, nilgai. Resort's driver is local and very knowledgeable about the birds, animals and other fauna in the sanctuary. To the wonderful people at Rann Riders, Thank you for the memorable accommodation and assistance provided throughout our stay there. Thank you from Mr. & Mrs. Ganguly. The staff , the location, the services provided, the room, the food 10/10.

Excellent Service & Facilities Excellent staff, great hospitality and good food. This resort is situated in Dasada village of Little Run of Kutch (2hrs drive from Ahmedabad). Although the ambience of the resort is traditional, the resort is equipped with modern facilities these are called Kutchi Bhungas (Mud Huts). We walked into the room and were immediately amazed as it was everything we could have hoped for. Our stay and every aspect of our visit to Little Rann of Kutch was taken care by the team. The resort is in close-proximity to wild Ass sanctuary. We had one game drive in the Little Rann of Kutch (arranged by resort). We saw flamingos, cranes, eagles, ducks, wild donkeys, desert fox and nilgai amongst other animals. We stopped to meet a salt-maker and his family. During our stay at the resort, we met Mr. Harish. He is very helpful and provided very congineoul environment and ready to make his guest feel comfortable. Special thanks to him. It is an excellent choice for travellers visiting Gujrat.I can not express how much we enjoyed staying here enough! This will definitely be a booking to repeat when we next return to Gujrat.

We paid a literally “flying” visit to rejuvenate ourselves. Cosy stay, delicious food and warm hospitality coupled with peaceful environment; this place is totally recommended for all who are busy churning themselves in daily hustle and bustle of life. Special thanks to Mr Harish Khan and his team for delightful experience. PS- if you are nature and pet lover; you should definitely visit the place. Can’t get over Bulbul, sandy and dollar. (Our new friends) Dont miss the desert safari to Lil Rann of kutch in early morning/ evening. It’s soothing.

We spent two nights at this resort. We went for two Safari trips. The guide is very well informed , polite and friendly. The staff at the resort is good , but there lacked a few minute details. The lunch and dinner are served very late . Yes, the food is good , there's a lot of variety but 8:30 pm is too late for dinner. I would love to go there again with my children provided these things are taken care of. The resort has these cute independent huts and there care lovely plants all around. There's plenty of parking place . Overall a good experience.

Very beautiful place with a domestic animal section that will delight an animal lover.The gardens, the variety of flowers, fruit trees, the peaceful pond - a dream of a place. But resorts aren't run on beauty alone. Rustic cottages with tastefully decorated interiors but doors don't close (felt very cold at night) and linen smelled of dandruff. Spacious open to air bathrooms but plumbing needed repairs. Awesome dining hall but hardly any variety in the vegetarian food. A base curry was used for all dishes. The chef provided zero chilly food but needed constant reminders. I was made to wait for almost all the meals I had there. Reception doesn't always answer calls. The resort is an hour's drive from the rann. a permit is needed - fee of Rs. 400. Open jeep safaris are a delight and the driver I had was very knowledgeable and supportive. Earlier mentioned to be of 5 hours, the safari is for 3 hours and a tad expensive. The sightings of the birds and the wild ass and the sheer expanse of the Rann are a never to be forgotten experience. Avoid opting for the packed breakfast (the jam sandwiches were....) My son had asked for omlette and got boiled eggs instead! The owner needs a lesson in politeness.
