overall the trip was fantastic, especially our safari guide Mr. Deshpande, who accompanied us on the safari. His valuable time given to our children, who were asking many question? He patiently answered the questions asked by our sons, which made the first day evening memorable. The room should have room freshner as it had a stinking smell. there should be variety in breakfast menus.
I visited May 2016. Tadoba as a tiger reserve is an experience for any animal lovers, we had total 11 tiger sitings in 3 days. About the hotel, booking : after payment had to follow up with sales team for receipt and cab arrangement. I booked for pick/drop from Nagpur airport, driver was not present had to wait to for 30 minutes. Resort ; friendly staff, best part they have resident naturalist that was not even mentioned during booking. Food : is simple & healthy but gets very boring on 3rd day. My safari arrangement was not planned properly as I had to pick a safari on a day when core area was closed, even though they knew my end to end itinerary. Experience / Interaction with naturalist and the safari drivers were the best part of my say.
Let’s begin with good things first: closest location to Kolara gate, excellent service from staff, courteous welcome from hotel authorities, spacious rooms and decent food. We had a water issue for an entire day during our two nights stay which was addressed by providing us buckets of water by hotel help. Kudos to them. However, if I pay an exorbitant price comparable to a four star stay at this place, such instances cannot be dismissed. The management needs to deliver something complimentary to the guests or return part of the money. Eventually, it is business. So, it wasn’t value for money. Also, the interior of the room lacks a little finesse for the price. Our bathroom though was extremely spacious which is a plus.
I had been here 2 nights in june. The rooms were really very nice and clean. If you prefer good healthy indian food this is the place to be. Also it’s 5mins from the entry point for tiger safari. People r very friendly. My special thanks to Mr. Parag Deshpande for sharing his indepth knowledge about Tadoba and it’s Tiger’s.

I went to Tadoba for the first time along with my family (wife and teenaged Daughter). This was our first visit to Tadoba and the experience at resort was very satisfying. The resort is located just 500 meters from Kolara gate, so you don’t waste much time. Booking arrangements were perfect, our Safari booking was also done by them and went smooth. Staff is very friendly and polite. Special mention of Satish and the Naturalist Parag Deshpande who helped us with a lot of useful tips and saw to it that our Safari experience becomes as great as it can. We got homely food, it was tasty and surprisingly was not much hot & spicy as you would expect in this part of Maharashtra (which was a bit of concern for us). And finally the reason why we were at Tadoba . . . we were fortunate to see tiger cubs during our first safari and Maya with her cubs during the second, both put together almost for 20 odd minutes

Me along witth family visited Tadoba Tiger King Resort for 3 days. I would always cherish this trip as it was my first safari. Naturalist Parag Despande further made it memorable experience by sharing interesting facts of Tadoba. Parag is an excellent host with personal touch. One of the nights, Parag voluntarily took us out on a night stroll to show us the jungle life around the resort. The vehicles for safari were decent.
On our way back from one of our evening safari, our vehicle broke down in the buffer zone. The driver requested for assistance and the resort promptly dispatched a vehicle. But in the meantime we enjoyed the thrilling time.
The staff is very friendly and well behaved. The food was delicious and the rooms spacious and clean. We had booked the transfers with the resort. The driver was courteous and the vehicle was clean.
Truly a memorable all round experience – Warm hospitality, interesting safaris, great sighting.
Room Tip: Book Safari along with hotel room
Located at walking distance from the Kolara gate in Tadoba Tiger Reserve, this hotel is the most convenient option for safari and nature lovers. We went there at the fag end of the safari season (season ends last wek of June) and had a good experience. It is what you would call a no-frills resort. However what makes it stand out are the comfortable rooms, tasty food and excellent service. Everyone from the manager to the naturalist to the restaurant servers were extremely polite and helpful. Buffet meals are included in the tariff and they are good. They also put water and food in boxes which can be consumed during the safari. For morning safaris they pack breakfast as well. The rooms are air conditioned and big. Bathrooms are massive and have geyser hot water in case needed. Very comfortable accomodation. The only thing which could be improved is that for some reason the cable tv connection didnt have any channels subscribed to. So while they had a tv in the room…it was almost non-functional. Also mobile signal is non-existent because of its proximity to the forest. However having said that, when you are doing 2 safaris per day (3 and a half hour each) all you need is a hotel that is close by, serves good hot food, has comfortable beds and helpful staff. And this resort fulfils all those criteria. I would definitely return here for my next safari as well.
