While the hotel’s next-door neighbor Paatlidun Lodge is all about Rustic Luxury, this property focuses on Stylish Luxury. Fancy Villa-style Rooms, beautifully landscaped greenery, cute little ponds, and cozy chillout areas, all come together beautifully to make this is a plush retreat in the cradle of nature. The activities they offer cover a wide range and go well beyond the typical safari drives. The views of the mountains and greenery from the first-floor areas are just spectacular.
We loved the property so much we just soaked ourselves in the jungle vibe just by chilling at the resort , and didn't even manage to get out! The place was so good. Our favorite part of the property was the stables which housed the cute horses, lambs and the lovely Machans that were built around them. The moments we spent in our balcony listening to the tunes of the birds and the music of the animals deep in the jungle were just priceless!
LOCATION: Located in the Fringe of the forest and right next to all the other luxury lodges in the area
DINE + DRINK: Lunch was a buffet affair, but a wonderful spread of local delicacies that you typically don't find in Wilderness lodge buffets! Special Kudos the super attentive staff. Also, the Dinner organized by the property was one of the most memorable Dinners in the jungle we had. A mind-blowing KUMAONI THALI served in a super special setting. Decadently magical - literally!
ROOM: We stayed in 606, so this review is based on that; VIEW: ; SIZE: Very spacious room; AIR-CON: Perfectly functioning cooler that helped in setting the perfect room temperature; BED: Comfortable bed that played the expected part to put me to sleep; BATHROOM: Stand in shower; TOILETRIES: Excellent Cosmetics from INNARA Brand
FACILITIES: Compact Gym with a basic range of weights and Cardio machines. They also have a lovely Table tennis table, Carrom board and other fun activities. The Horse riding activity is a cool offering. Even if you dont try it, meet the two lovely horses that used to be part of a Polo team. But the most killer of the facilities is the lovely Swimming pool. There are pools, and then there are Jungle pools to die for! I will let the pictures do the talking!
SERVICE: Friendly staff that took care of all my needs with a smile and made us feel pampered and well taken care of. Special Shout out to Chef GIRISH who prepared a special dinner for us. Big thanks to Ms.TANYA (from Guest services) who hosted us wonderfully and gave us private tours of the property and continually ensured that our stay was flawless and we had a very memorable experience. The way the restaurant staff took care of us, and even wanted to pack special snacks for us(since I had a stomach bug) was the kind of treatment I’ve not received from a resort in a long time(especially in ones where I am not a elite Loyalty member!) This is the kind of Guest service that the industry can get more and more ,and as guests we need to acknowledge and welcome more!! Kudos to the staff!
HOW WIRED YOU WILL BE: Free Wi-Fi that works very patchily from the room. Big Plasma TV screen dishing out dozens of channels spanning sports, news, music, movies and a wide variety of entertainment in multiple languages
