One of the best places to stay on a birding visit to Jim Corbett National Park, the oldest and most famous in India. It holds one of the last populations of the critically endangered Bengal Tiger as well as Asian Elephant and other mammals.
The lodge has several rooms arranged in apartments (though without a kitchen), situated around the perimeter of the garden. Each has a small terrace at the entrance with wicker chairs for relaxing after a birding day. The interior of the rooms is spacious, clean and well maintained, decorated with paintings of birds.
Wi-fi available only in the reception area, low speed but enough to check email and communicate using Whatsapp.
The food is excellent, served in an open restaurant in the garden. A large selection of dishes, many vegetarian and not too spicy (ideal for Western stomachs). In a warm and intimate atmosphere with outdoor cinema next door, where documentaries on nature are projected.
The hotel property is next to the Kosi river, where you can also walk. There are good birds in the gardens such as Collared Scops-Owl, Jungle Owlet, Crimson Sunbird, etc.
It is owned by Asian Adventures, one of the tourism nature companies with most experience in India, who can organise guided visits both to the national park or to watch birds in adjacent areas where some of the main Corbett targets can be found: Ibisbill, Brown Fish Owl, Nepal Wren-babbler or Chestnut-headed Tesia among many others.
