This is my 2nd visit to Svasara Jungle Lodge and I think it was as good if not better than my 1st visit. I received a very warm welcome on my arrival and was shown to Room 112. which is a twin bedded airy room and very comfortable. They have ceiling fans and A/C which I hardly used. Although it was very hot when the sun was shining at night I was very comfortable with just the ceiling fan. The food was just as good as i remembered and the care and friendliness of Ranjit and Nandita along with their staff
have made my stays here so memorable. There is wi-fi in the main lounge and dining room but not in the individual rooms.
The newest addition to their property is a Spa and large in-ground pool with a wading pool for children. It is set a short walk away from the mail lodge buildings surrounded by trees, flowering shrubs and brush. It is a very pretty building and the spa area is covered over with a high peaked roof so that if one is is so inclined to sit in the shade in one of the beach chairs you can do that. The pool looked so inviting at the time I
visited it but I didn't have time to take a swim and then get ready for my safari. The spa offers various types of Ayurvedic massages, whole body massages to facials and aromatherapy which again looked very inviting and also seemed very reasonable.
To me it is a very special place to stay with so many wonderful memories that I hope I'll
be visiting them again on my next journey to India.
