Accommodation

The Victorian style architecture of the villa-like houses has 48 differing bedrooms – all with luxuriant interiors and cleverly designed to accommodate all group sizes.

There are 10 Victorian style residential blocks housing 48 differing yet plush styles of bedrooms and suites, all with attached bathrooms. All rooms have private balconies that overlook the forested Bijrani Zone of the park and only differ in their set up and interconnectedness.

Dining

The restaurant with an extended deck for barbeques and sky dining overlooks the swimming pool and offers an eclectic variety of Mediterranean, Oriental and Indian cuisines. Most of the produce is purchased from local farmers or grown in the organic gardens ensuring fresh daily ingredients. Dinner is often served next to a roaring bonfire.

Experiences

You can choose to explore the jungle on a jeep safari. Other activities include cycling, buggy ride, bullock cart ride, fishing, nature walks and yoga sessions with a trained teacher. Go horseback riding, get an invigorating massage at the spa, or simply relax by the pool. The resort also has a naturopathy and wellness centre that provides a wide range of spa therapies and treatments under the guidance of certified practitioners.

Why we love this place

The entire property has been landscaped with forest trees and lawns to provide an extended space to relax and enjoy the forest backdrop. Furthermore, its commitment to restoration, conservation and good environmental practice ensures your stay does not compromise the park.
