Lodges on stilts surrounded by bamboo, low density lodges. Many birds visible from the shared areas, garden and nature trail including vultures, hornbill, babblers, pond heron. Impeccable service, knowledgeable wildlife expertise, good food and lovely facilities.

Terrific room in a rustic setting. The style definitely fits the environment. Food was great, including a fresh breakfast. Fresh water in the room frequently replenished. Love that they use filtered water. No plastics. Oh, and we saw tigers.
