Asiatic Lion Lodge, Sasan gir
Sasangir-bhalchel-haripur road A/p Haripur-Gir Sasangir
We been to Asiatic Lion Lodge, Sasan gir after Deepawali and it turned into one of the most memorable trip for us. It was a nicely located lodge in a very peaceful area. Rooms were well spread out, spacious and thoughtfully decorated. Its eco friendly theme was very evident. All amenities in the room were very well designed and provide adequate space as well. Staff was very well mannered and very helpful all the time. Housekeeping too was very good. The Gazebo near a small river tributary was a wonderful place to have a cup of tea in the evening. We were fortunate to see lions in jungle game drive twice. We plan to go to Somnath and in the evening Arti darshan also. It’s nearby and road to somnath was good. It was great place to stay over and will definitely visit again.
We were at the Asiatic Lion for 3 nights and 4 days . The overall stay was a pleasant one but there were some minor glitches during our stay . 1st I would like to discuss some good things about this hotel 1) Friendly Staff. 2) Excellent food 3) Scenic beauty 4) Good Location 5) Clean Rooms 6) Cosy cottages 7) WiFi availability all over the resort Although this has a lodge against the name written the resort isn't so bad as it has been just constructed now . Now the cons 1) The location however might feel good during the mornings but as the day falls to night the place becomes close to haunted. 2) Safety , I feel was a major issue. 3) The guys at the reception sleep off and no one was present there at 5 o'clock when we had our girl safari, Even the restaurant was closed even though we had asked fr some bfst to be packed for us . I would recommended that a group of at least 2 families visit to make it a pleasant experience. These are the only cons that can be pointed out other wise it was a pleasant experience.
I went to the Asiatic Lion Lodge as I was not able to get the bookings at Club Mahindra (Gir) of which I am a member, and as I was visiting Sasan after nearly a decade, I did not know what to expect from the region itself and from the Hotel too. It was a very nice surprise that I found at Asiatic Lion Lodge. It was not a letdown from my usual Club Mahindra expectations. A very nice location (just next door to Club Mahindra), food that was really good (All veg affair - quite to my liking), daily evening activity of some sort like a wildlife film, or the very authentic sidi dance, etc. Located just 5 km. Off the Sasan highway (approximately 10 km to Sasan from the Hotel), the place was really without any disturbances from the highway. I would sum up my feelings by saying that it is definitely on visit again list.
I am frequent visitor to Gir but this time I found a new place to stay. Good Location, very well equipped rooms, well maintained new Lodge in Gir. Room has all a 5 star hotel feel to it. Rooms are with a rustic touch. Good seating arrangements outside the room to enjoy nature, well landscaped, Gazebo is too good, its near a check dam so very good bird sighting, some time find wildlife too. Very good collection of books, pl. ask front office to take you for nature walk and bird watching, its very good. Best part is food its very well, less of oil but very tasty. Over all its very nice experience in a new property.. And it was great as I spotted 4 male lions in this trip to photograph. GIR rocks!!
Wonderful experience at Asiatic Lion Lodge. This is the best place and Sasan gir. Away from commercial main road. Scenic location and excellent food. Helpful staff, cozy rooms, Gazebo is great at night. Enjoyed lion roar at Gazebo, late night. We enjoyed Camel Cart ride and village visit, its good & enjoying. We have done soft trek at a hill in front of the lodge, its really a thrilling experience.
