Gir Jungle lodge is one of the private resort that is available if you are looking for a decent budget stay at gir national park. This resort is located about 2.5km from the safari booking center and about 8 km from the Devaliya park. It's a decent size property with 3 types of accommodation namely rooms, tents and huts. The property also has a children's play area and a bonfire sitout in the open. The dining area has a open dining space plus a dining room and a decent size swimming (which of course was closed due to the covid 19). There is a squarish garden at the backend of the property where they grow organic food and is a decent place to spend off time. You may also get to see a number of birds chirping away in this area. Tourists traveling during winter are advices to carry heavy warm clothes as it get really cold here at night. We stayed at the property for 3 nights and found the service at the resort to be okayish.. On the 3days when we asked the rooms to be cleaned, they did it on our request. They also served us water etc from time to time. It should be pointed that the resort was undergoing some renovation and additions which did take away a bit of its charm. Rooms are decent size with normal facilities and the washroom was cleaned. I did check the tented accommodate and it's similar to the rooms.. No complains.. Food is where it disappointed us a bit. Mostly served Gujarati food and the taste was decent to good but since Gir is a destination for people from across india, they should include more options. Non veg was made to order and was billed separately. (Served only at dinner and you need to tell well in advance for them to prepare it) I wish there was something more for us to leave behind an imprint in our mind. We did 5 safaris on open jeep which I had book well in advance and was successful is sighting all the forest animals including lions and leopards. Overall people who are looking for a decent budget stay at gir and has an vehicle of their own should enjoy this place to the fullest. …
Wonderful stay, from arrival to checkout. ALL staff incredibly helpful and polite - from office staff, to restaurant waiters and the leaf-sweeping ladies ! "Gypsy" (jeep) trips to Sasan Gir arranged for us with no fuss or mishaps - they even arrange morning tea delivered to your room in case of early morning safari visits. Sadly the lovely pool is now covered by a roof - keeps it clean, I suppose, but cold ! Food was outstanding - all meals were included in our rate. Well worth doing this. Room was fairly basic, but certainly clean and adequate. Oh, and the whole place smelt lovely - due to the trees and roses in the grounds. Overall, a hugely pleasant stay, enhanced by great staff.
The Staff and Guides were very nice and helpful. The food was excellent and the dinning staff went above and beyond. Staff in the SPA was lacking and they did not complete the whole hour paid for. Lastly, the drain line in the bathroom smelled of sewer 24/7; however the rooms were clean and comfortable.
The resort is on the main Junagadh road, its approx 2 km from Sinh Sadan. I arrived before official check in as I came on the overnight bus from Ahmadabad, my tent wasn't ready but they gave me a room so I could freshen up and rest. Which was really appreicated. The tent was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The food was excellent with plenty of choice. The grounds are lovely with lots of trees, and there is a swimming pool, which is next to the restraurant. I didn't use it but a few families did while I was there The hotel arranged for a jeep to collect me for all my safari's. As well as a taxi to junagadh, The staff and the manager were polite and very helpful. I can't thank them enough for their assistance and kindness.
