“Commercial,yet fun,,could be made more classy...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

We went on a very hard summer weekend...but came enriched... I booked this camp purely on the reviews given in trip advisor,and found it true to a T... The Ambience of the place is the HALLMARK, with a beautiful temple near by and a river flowing(Hirni river)... The tents are fair,only i had issues with the fragile build of the tents. Yet the tents are a better option then same old 5 star rooms...nice and cosy... The Food was good,but the menus could be made more interesting, although we enjoyed all our foods.. But the only tiff is that they were tooo expensive,, A mineral water bottle cost Rs50/-, and internet surfing for an hour 100/-.. The camp can be made more classy,more value for money.... but for a traveller it is a lovely getaway from the mad rush of urban life... Crunching ur feet on the seashells strewn on the allys and seeing the mango trees blooming... and the STAR's...the Lions(a lioness and a cub and innumerrable deer)..... all this made it a Wonderful Experience... Go without fear,both to the camp and the safari for atleast one time...Thoroughly enjoyable.....

a. The photographs of the rooms displayed in your attachment sent earlier and the actual rooms are vastly different . We booked the place keeping in mind the size of the room being shown in the pdf file.
b. There is no explanation which could be provided by your camp site people on this. When you knew that there are 3 adults and 2 kids to a room, how could you not suggest that it will be difficult to accommodate in your small tents?
c. On a payment request by Credit Card, the manager insisted on an additional 3% charge – pl tell me which Hotel chain (especially of your stature) charges for making a payment by credit card? I had to literally fight to get him to waive this charge.
d. We had requested for additional blankets – the same was refused stating that there are no more available as everyone room has asked for an additional blanket
e. The pictures of dining by the river side on the pdf file sent seems to be only pictures. No such service was available
f. The overall service and attention level was to be quite lacking and poor
h. The housekeeping staff was extremely rude and seemed like they were doing us a favour by setting the beds
i. There was no attempt post our safari to even bother checking with our experience as to how it went, any sightings, any other activity we would like to do
j. We were charged for the fees to be paid to the Guide for the safari but there was no corresponding receipt available

I have stayed at similar resorts at Jim Corbett and the services and the attempts to make the experience worthwhile for the guest are commendable. But this was not even remotely available at your resort. The Manager at your resort seemed least interested in any activity.

We had visited gir during the second week of March, 2012. Mornings and evenings were chilling cold and the day time was quite hot.We enjoyed our stay to the fullest.Excellent food, facilities, service and hospitality.We were sharing our room with my son and so we had to lay an extra bed in our room.They laid a mattress on the floor, where my son was hesitant to sleep as he felt that some worms might turn up at night.We requested the manager to provide us with an extra cot instead of the mattress, and he arranged for it within minutes.There is little bit of disturbance as we can hear the sounds from the tents around us.But then, it gives us a different experience altogether.But it is also very delighting to get up with the chirps of the birds around, even the peacocks.I would strongly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try to take a tent away from the kitchen.

Had driven down to gir with family for a tryst with nature!..the road leading to the hotel is in a pretty bad shape making you navigate through fields and in a sense hiding the true gem that this hotel is!!..
After a quick check-in we were allocated our tent. Being located in a mango orchard and with 20 tents only, thankfully, the property is not noisy and lets you soak in the sights and sounds of the nature around you! We went for a nature walk and spotted lots of birds around the resort along the river that flows next to the resort. All the three meals were extremely good..full marks to their chef!..although a bit spicy. The games room is adequate and the safari to gir national park is extremely well organised by the hotel, without you having to bother about any permits at all and in their own jeeps!!..Sighting of lions is not guaranteed though!..
Overall an excellent place to stay in Sasan Gir!..Just Go for it!
