"Dandeli - in nature's lap"

5.8/7
Posted 7 months ago

Now I've had the time of my life. No I never felt this way before. These wonderful lyrics from a song in Dirty Dancing come alive when you visit Dandeli, embedded between lush green forests with the serene Kali river flowing by. It is a paradise for nature lovers. It has been long time since we graduated from school, but I am one of those few lucky ones in regular touch with my school mates. We make it a point to meet regularly and go out once in two years. This time it was my call and we decided on Dandeli in Karnataka. The beauty of this place can only be felt. We left by car from Hyderabad to reach Dandeli in around 12 hours. It was of course a tiring drive due to the bumpy roads, but once we reached, early morning at around 6 am, it was, I can only say AWESOME. We checked in at the Hornbill Resort (named after a rare bird, only found in that region, we were told) and were put up in a tree house! The fun had just begun. We rested for a bit, and then headed for a swim in the river after a wonderful breakfast. Oh I must mention the spring water we drank, believe me you will forget the Kinleys and Aquafina. I certainly did! Anyways, soon after breakfast, we went swimming in the river and followed it up with fishing! By the way, you are not allowed to keep your catch, fish and drop it back in is what we all did. After a delicious lunch and a bit of rest we went for white water rafting which was an adventure for some and fear for a few amongst us. It included about 9 kms of boating, some 12 rapids, surfing and bird watching. We headed back in an open-top jeep (it is about 22 kms drive from the ending point of the rafting). We thoroughly enjoyed the ride. After refreshing ourselves, we were in a mood of some singing and dancing. The owner of the resort -- Umesh, a thorough gentleman who takes care of the guests personally -- arranged for a campfire on the banks of the river and we danced and sang till around midnight. After merrymaking, and a wonderful dinner (served hot at midnight), we moved to the tree house where an exhilarating experience was awaiting us. Imagine being 40 feet above the ground, the tree house leaning into the river and the moonlight falling on the flowing river. The only sound you could hear was that of the water! We woke up early next morning and went for a safari ride deep into the jungles. Saw some bisons (a Dandeli special). We had breakfast in the midst of the jungle. By the time we came back it was lunch time. After lunch and a short nap, Umesh (the owner), took charge and asked us to pack our bags. We were all surprised but followed him to the rafts without any questions. After a short ride, we reached what looked like a small island. Here he announced that we would camp there overnight! Imagine an island, no inhabitants, only the six of us and two caretakers. We felt as if we owned it. Lush greenery everywhere, full of teak plantations, we were mesmerised! We explored the island, rejuvenated in the natural jacuzzis and returned to our tents at around 7.30 pm. Again a camp fire was lit near the river. We had a tandoor lit between two rocks and made jacket potatoes, paneer tikka and tandoori cauliflower. Morning came too soon and it was time to say adieu. We left the place with a wonderful experience and lots of great memories. On our way back we stopped to see the Sindhuri Rock, a 300 feet tall monolithic granite located deep inside the thick Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a must see. In all, our trip to Dandeli was the most memorable experience we had. Note: This trip was done around 5 years back.

"Excellent services & nice location"

6.6/7
Posted 7 months ago

Enjoyed a nice and excellent resort in Dandile. We got good services with good guidelines. Also this place is nice for family holiday. This place is really good to spend with family or friends group. We thinks its silent place with cool effects. I have suggest many of my friends to visit in Dandile. Then go to only Hornbill resorts. Its location is so ideal in jungle area. But I think this place is good for weekend only. Seriously I am not visit jungle safari. It common every one.

"Good place for family and worth the money spent"

6.5/7
Posted 2 years ago

I visited there in June 2013. It was a very good experience for me there. Location of the resort was nice. There was a very natural view in surroundings of the resort. It is a very good place for family. I went there with family for roaming around. Services were nice there. Staff people were quick to attend to all our requests. Behaviour of the staff was very friendly with us. Receptionist was nice there. We took only veg food in this hotel. I liked the variety and quality of food. It was very reasonable according to price. Room was very good. It was neat and clean. We had taken non-AC room there because AC was not required at that time. Bathroom, furnishings, and all were clean and hygienic there. Hot and cold water was available there for 24 hours. They used to clean the room regularly. Interior and exterior look of the resort was good. We went for jungle safari only. Sightseeing trip was arranged by them. Finally, it is a good place to go. Money spent there was worth. I have already recommended it to other people. It is a good place if you want to enjoy the forest view.

Over all experience was much thrilling. The resort is very good. The service is good and the food is also good. But overall package is over priced.There are absolutely no restaraunts or eateries available in the vicinity. We stayed 1 day in rock house which was a good experience and 1 day at the tree house. The very sight of the tree house is so exciting . It is very well maintained and clean. Only problem is that during the night there was rat menace and whole night was disturbing due top the rat playing around and lot of insects. The resort should do some thing about this. The tarriff is quite on the higher side for what you get.
