We spent three nights here and loved it. My only regret is that I we didn't go for one of the cottages or tents - completely my fault, I was frightened of snakes!
The food is the best variety of vegetarian that we have had in a hotel and the staff were fantastic, always helpful, smiley and polite.
The spa is to die for, you must try it, I personally recommend the foot massage and exfoliation, my little fat feet felt so light and refreshed afterwards, thank you so much to the staff there.
The projects that they have set up to help the local community and to protect the tigers are admirable and I enjoyed my visit to the local school, the children were delightful, motivated to learn, very polite and with excellent English - probably a little more chatty than they would normally be due to my lack of Hindi!
Definitely a place to go back to, we saw tigers twice which added to the experience, but even without our sightings it was a privilege to be allowed to share their environment for a short while.
