We were into days 17-19 of our tour of India when we arrived at Kings Lodge. After a long drive, the welcome of warm towels and lime water was a wonderful sight. Kings Lodge is a lovely property. The individual cabins are elevated off the valley floor so that you have a nice view from your patio. The beds are... More

A lovely location with rooms on stilts in the trees. Excellent friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Lovely food. Naturalist Shibajee Mitra in addition to accompanying us on game drives also took us on an afternoon walk in the forest and village which was really enjoyable. Even better we saw two tigers.

I stayed here with family once and returned with friends the next time. Well laid out property, aptly named the King's Lodge. A warm welcome at the reception, we were briefed about the place. The cottages, at a good distance from each other are resting on stilts. A cute balcony from where you enter the room. Neat and spacious, big... More
