I mentioned to write about the resort and here it is
My Story: The national park is almost 380 kms from the airport, to start with ……our flight was delayed by an hour and we reached by 6:30 in the evening, Which means overnight journey and reaching the destination by midnight. ….But with high spirits we decided to move on. As we were tired, so we made a number of stoppages to keep ourselves awake and finally reached by 3.00 am . I was quite doubtful that any one might be awake by this time to open the gates but after some struggle that was managed.
To reach the resort we crossed the check point and drove around 4 kms and then took a turn, which seemed little creepy to me as it led to an unpaved road deeper into the forest but after 300mts we reached the front gate and have to agree that I freaked out a bit for some time.
As soon as we crossed the reception and were passing through the walkway which looked beautiful & very romantic at night lit by lamps on both the sides, I wanted to take pictures but could not as already I was pushing myself to reach my room.
This place was referred to me by a friend and friends never go wrong. It was paradise for me, off beat, trees, forest, farm, railway tracks, river and panoramic views.
If you want a break from the monotony of city life, this is your place.
They are equipped with all the modern facilities; also there is a swimming pool and open space for bonfire or gathering.
How to reach: From Ahmedabad (distance from Ahmedabad airport is approx 380 kms) we booked a cab and it took around 7-8 hours.
Another way is to reach Junagadh by taking a bus, cab or train and from there is just 60 kms approx.
About the property in a nutshell: It is 4 Km from Sinh Sadan, which is a Forest Department office, a boarding point of Gir Jungle Safari. Devaliya Gir Interpretation zone is 12 Km from the resort. The facilities in resort include swimming pool, conference hall, multipurpose hall with 200 max seating capacity, dining hall, parking, doctor on call, walking track, machan, bonfire, children park, seating Lounge, terrace seat out for Forest panoramic view, etc.
They have different categories of rooms and cottages to suite your comfort. All the cottages are surrounded by Garden and has separate seat out area.
Food: The restaurant serves Chinese, Gujarati, North Indian & South Indian cuisines. You can also choose for all meals option while room booking and enjoy their buffet like I did.
Hope you enjoy your stay……..
