Awesome Hotel and Service


Faint aroma of lemon grass and basil welcomed us as we used the baby pink refreshing towels on our arrival, with both reception and the rooms smelling of mandarin It's a three hour drive from Ahmedabad and we arrived a little before 12 noon, earlier than expected and the resort wasn't expecting us, but our rooms were ready and the check in was very smooth with refreshing lemonade as welcome drink We saw many black bucks en route and also around the Lodge and birds The best part of the very well maintained lodge is its tranquillity, soft lights and very low decibels, to not disturb the wild life Rooms are spacious, spot less wit awesome bathrooms and open showers. However, the Bath tub is too deep with nothing to hold and impractical Food is sensible with limited buffet and tasty. They can work on their bakery products. The same cookies are served with every tea and the breads and cakes are every dry Go for outdoor dinner at 2500 INR per person, minimum four persons, it is quite a romantic experience Having said all of it, boarding and lodging for driver is 1350 INR per night and the lodge doesn't inform you unless ask for it. We felt cheated. The closest place for driver to eat is 10 km far WiFi in rooms is 500 INR per night, however free in dining. We were only informed about the paid WiFi. Please ensure you know about all hidden costs The entire lodge sleeps at night and no one picks up the phone at reception. There are no home sleepers, no telephone directory in the room. We wanted to leave for Palitana at 5. 30 am and requested a wake up call and bed tea for 4. 30 am. We woke up at 4. 40 on our own. We kept dial ling '9' with no response, then I went to see if I can find someone. The dining space and the reception were both closed and there was not a soul around. It was rather freaky. Our wake -up call and bed tea arrived in it's sweet time and Don't be in a rush to book the safari through the lodge and don't take Sunday safari, there is too much rush and the animals get scared and don't come forward.

Peaceful environment and clean room


Blackbuck Lodge is the only good place to stay when exploring the Velavadar Blackbuck Sanctuary. It is in rural part of the city, accessible by car or bike but you need private car to get into the sanctuary. Guide services available. Rooms are clean and peaceful environment.
