The property is a little inside from the Bandipur center, but that makes it special! We spotted lots of deers even before we reached the resort. The welcome and check in at the resort was easy, warm and fast. The mountain log hut looked beautiful except that the lighting is really low and is not sound or temperature insulated. The fog from outside was easily seeping into the room through the bathroom. Smallest of sounds was heard outside. The wine, cake and other snacks complimentary was a mood booster. Making the food charged to the room tariff is a good move unless you are a poor eater. The food was pretty good except for the fish on all days. HK was lightning fast and very responsive. Reception though was a little slow to respond. The staff at the restaurant too were very nice. They helped with baby food for my 1 year old quickly and without any fuss. Overall, the service and the property was really good. However, not more than 2-3 days there. I may go to Kabini or Havelock next, but Bandipur not anytime soon only because of the place and not the resort. No spottings anywhere near the resort too. For the resort itself, I would go anytime eyes closed.
"Fabulous resort in a beautiful setting"
Recently stayed with my wife and two small children (aged 2 and 4). Beautiful setting and wonderful service, including things for young children (playground, swimming pool and games room). Courteous friendly staff who went out of their way to help us. The food in restaturant was splendid and the head chef was happy to prepare all sorts of different cuisines on request. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
