Red Earth Kabini

Red Earth Kabini

Nagarhole National Park
, Karnataka
, India

Red Earth Kabini’s ten acres is set on a peninsula, bordered by the picturesque backwaters of the Kabini Dam, which flows on into the mighty Nagarhole and Bandipur reserves nearby. Red earth mud walls are the predominant colour and texture of the comfortable cottages together with thatch roofs and bamboo verandas, laid out around waterholes.

The fact that three suites are deliberately kept for honeymooners suggests that this is a place to indulge your senses. With marbled hot tubs in every cottage and the ‘wetland’ bar in the middle of an island, you would be right to consider it as a romatic getaway – with wildlife as an added extra.
