“Old World Charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

On our visit to Kaziranga we stayed at the very charming Wild Grass Lodge. The main building is an old Forest Lodge converted into a massive Dining Hall, retaining all the old furniture,fittings as well as pictures and artefacts. All guests usually gather here for their meals and get to share their experience of the days visit to the National Park.
The Rooms are in two blocks set away from the main block and are very comfortable with wicker furniture and wooden flooring.
Manju Barua who runs this place is a mine of information, not only about Kaziranga, but the whole of the North East. He regales the guests with his tales most evenings over tea.
The guides provided by this resort are most knowledgable and helpful. You are almost certain of sighting Rhinos during the safari on elephant back.The Jeep safari is great fun too.
In the evenings a dance performance by nearby village tribals is arranged around a bonfire .
We liked the ambience so much that we stayed for 3 days in place of the planned single day!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are very comfortable. But some are on higher floors and climbing up and down can be ti...

WE planned our trip on April 30th i mailed many hotels. HE WAS the only one who told us during our plan itself that the park closes on may 1st and he gave us a little different itinery. If he had not informed us the total trip would have been a total waste.

They take care from even buying the elephant safari tickets and take us straight at the safari at 5:30 a.m.

Deepak and kamini were all really friendly and arranged eveything thru just a phone call.

Cost is another good factor. Place is really really nice it feels like we are in between a jungle with lots of people around, but it is not scarry. No tv and a/c so just we can enjoy nature. The lodge is really nice location wise and its plan inside. But no boards on the highway but almost everyone on the highway can help u reach the place. THere is a self-hep group nearby just 300 mts away u can just walk there u get good veg assamese homestyle thali. Rupjyothi saikai and her no. is
98548 45253

Food seems a little boring after 2 days and the service gets slightly detailed. But we do have to mention that during elephant safari they wake us up at 4.15 a.m with tea and biscuits. Nice.

kids play area is there and lots of birds over there. SO really a great place. Looking forward to go again.

I had lot of expectationsfrom this hotel or lodge as it was praised a lot by my best friend. however this are the last two days of the season and kaziranga sanctuary is getting closed and will reopen in october.
However this does not make this hotel good anyway. just the right word. Dont expect anything but worse and u will be happy to c or get something from this hotel/lodge.
We alongwith my wife and kid, parents and my niece landed on 29 apr late night by around 0730pm. however there was no concern about the late customers and their tiring journey. I had to ask the so-called reception - CONTROL ROOM to provide with some help to take my bagages. It was raining so again i had to ask for UMBRELLA, and they gave one for 6 of us. WHAT A SERVICE.
then since it was raining and we were tired and my dad was not well i asked to provide them dinner at room which was flatly refused. and guess wht in the mean time dinner was served to two other rooms.
ROOMS start before they end. two single beds, 3 chairs, and other are all cramped up in a small and DINGY. no space to mov around for two people. Only one can move. and the lights. 4 zero watts bulbs in 4 lamp shades that hang around lifelessly. all lights are same. It makes the room more DULL. the bathroom and toilet are also same. the fans are old and noisy. THE EFFORTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO GIVE A AMBIENCE OF FOREST GUEST ROOMS with wooden flooring and ALL. HOWEVER IT IS A FAILED EFFORT.
Now coming to the restuarant part. go there and give ur order atleast ONE HOUR prior OR best is during ur last meal. so whatever u want to have in lunch order Give it during ur breakfast.
Its too DIM lights so again not much to expect. the menu card has got only four to five choices. Again dont worry too much. whatever u order is JUST OK so chill out. The drinking water glasses smell. so i had to request to clean it with Hot and lime water.
MY VIEW. IF U CANT ANYTHING THEN THIS LODGE IS OK. AND YES DONT EXPECT ANYTHING....AND U WILL B ATLEAST HAPPY.

We stayed in the WG Resort from 10th April to 14th April. I tell you we have gone to lah ladak, sikkim, dargiling, shillong, Hevalock, ganapatipule, Murdeshwar, Daman and other placess with my family for holidays. But I found that this place is amazing, I booked the resort after review from trip adviser and you know with one e mail they booked my accomadation and made my travel itinary flawless.Right from pick up from Guwahati and back to Barua Bhavan it is really nice to enjoy with WG. Mr. Manju Barua has developed an excellent team of truly homely people all of them there to make your stay a memorable one. The safari was good we have seen lot of rhino,elephant, deers, monkeys, wild bore buffolo, red neked paragon, yellow foot pigion. and lot many, our guide mr pradeep took care very well, showed us tea plantation, rubber and coffee plantation. Also, surprisingly, when we told GM Mr Gogai that we wanted to visit Majoli he arranged our trip on friday and planned accordingly I request all guest to visit the Majoli also if they have two days time to spend there. NIce place to see. Also Mr Manju Barua have arraged cultural programme during evening camp fire like Tea garden Jumori dance, and anotherdy Assami Bihu dance It was very nice. I played drum after long time along with the dance troop. A lot of cultural activities u can do other than safari. Only other suggestion i can give is that if they putup a small library dipiting flora funa and assamies cultural and region books it would be nice( I am sure that Mr Barua should have lot of Books). The place is very nicely made with fine taste for visitors. You also can get vegitarian food ( since we are pure veg) restaurent is nice and fine. Food is excellent service is good, Baigan Patika, bababa sabji are good. lastly I request all guest to go and stay while coming back in Barua Bhavan in Guwahati to see how taste and lagacy of family history can be preserved and carryforward to furture generation. Hats of to Mr,Manju Barua and his team for building a successful team.

We stayed in Wild Grass Lodge for 10 nights in March 2012. I have to say I worried about the place not being too comfy after reading few reviews on this website. It was a lovely suprise! We booked the cheapest room in thatched cottage which was away from the main buildings and overlooked little local village. The room was simple, but very comfortable, the large and clean bathroom was right next to the cottage. We had hot water whenever we needed it, towels changed every day. Very nice boy called Omit came every day to the room to take our meal orders and to make sure we had everything we needed. The restaurant was very good too, we enjoyed our vegetarian meals and indian beer a lot. The staff was very good, always smiling and ready to help with every little thing you might need. Our guide was very good too, we spent about 7 days in the park, where we saw lots of intersteing species (rhinos, water buffalos, elephants, all types of deer, hog badgers, otters, monitor lizards, beautiful hornbills, wild boar, etc..). We also saw an amazing water lizard in eastern range, but weren't lucky enough to see the tiger... We also went to Gibbons sanctuary and did the trekk in Kaziranga. It was a great experience, we saw few hollock gibbons, hornbills and gigantic squirrels during the walk. I would like to say big thank you to Manju for having us in his beautiful place, our guide Gokul and the driver Orun for making our jungle experience such great fun. Also big thank you to Omit and Orrunath for making our stay very enjoyable and providing and excellent service, big thank you to all of the boys at the restaurant and reception area! We hope we will see you all again!
