We had visited the resort on the month of October with family members including elderly parents. The resort is spread in a large area with beautiful cottages with modern amenities. The chef was excellent and the supporting staff was also very helpful. The guide took us for a bird watching safari in the morning. The guide has an excellent knowledge about the birds and he explained it very well. The front desk staff was also very supportive and took great care of us. Overall a great property to unwind and enjoy with the family.

We visited Velavadar with family including elderly persons. The property is very well maintained boutique place with only 14 well appointed rooms where from room itself you can see some animal visitors, we could watch our selves. The rooms are very well maintained and clean including all the linen. Considering that it is a jungle lodge, we were pleasantly impressed by this. More importantly, we were totally impressed by the quality of the staff and their eagerness to serve the guests. This was like a crown in the jewel. The Chef needs a special mention. He made food across various cuisines and each was par excellence not only in taste but also in presentation. The menu was almost curated to our choice. All three meals Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner on both days were excellent. Well done. The Sanctuary was closed when we visited but were taken for a Safari in outer region for seeing the birds. Impressed by knowledge of the Guide. So all was well and very well spent time. Keep it up.

Best experience with excellent hospitality. Lot many varieties ( veg and eggs) with nice taste for breakfast. We had opted for MEP plan so enjoyed dinner also. Villa is quite spacious with practically all amenities provided. Even the national park was closed, we were able to see hundreds of blackbucks. Overall experience....... excellent.

This is a property which reminds you of hotels in Tanzania while on a safari. The design is beautiful, it is very well maintained and the food is excellent. Landscape is perfect and attention is given to small details. The crockery is all monogrammed and the toiletries containers are too amazing. Service is impeccable. The blackbucks are easily visible while going to and coming back from the hotel. So, even though the park was closed, we saw thousands of blackbucks easily. We hope to revisit in the winter.

It was great experience to visit The Black Buck Lodge. Property is well maintained. Neat and clean. Room size is excellent. Furnishing is appropriate. One does not have to ask for anything. Room service staff is very good. Their self service in the evening is really appreciated. Restaurant is also good. It’s not lavish but your need is fulfilled. Breakfast and main course don’t give so much variety but it serves tasty food with good quality stuff. Some improvement in no of items will be highly appreciated by the guest. Reception staff is very courteous and helpful. Mr. Rakesh, listen to all the comments made by guest and takes immediate follow up. Mr. Vishal made our safari very informative and prompted us to revisit the lodge again.
