Stayed one night with full board in a deluxe double room for INR 10,000. Booked two exclusive safaris through the resort for the two of us (INR 12,240 in total) plus transfer from the Khatia gate to resort (INR 2,000). All arrangements were made from Australia and were paid in advance, went smoothly and had no problems.
The moment we arrived we felt very welcome and knew the place was going to be special. The resort is in a great location. It is secluded, has lovely grounds and buildings and has a small number of tourists giving it an intimate, relaxing feel. It is located in the forest, with car parking a short walk away from the accommodation, making the resort very quiet.
Rooms are big and comfortable with some lovely little touches - such as snacks, welcome card, plant leaves decorations on soap dishes - and are very well appointed. The resort has a main eating / socializing area that comprises a high roofed open dining room set inside a stand of trees. A lovely place that, at night, gives a romantic feel over a candlelit dinner. Gentle mood lighting completes the scene.
The food is outstanding. Apart from always having coffee, biscuits and snacks on hand the variety, taste and presentation of the main meals is impeccable. With all the guests seated around a single table and the owner a willing and enthusiastic raconteur, it makes for a wonderful dining experience.
What made this resort stand out were the attention to detail, small touches and the welcoming staff.
In all of India it is extremely rare to find a place that leaves nothing to be desired, a place that gets it all right all the time. We will definitely be coming back to stay longer. This is truly a place to come to if you want to relax and be taken care of.
