Property is owned by forest department itself! But, seems not very popular or known among tourists. Its actually quite cheap to book in a package, with the guarantee of getting Boating tickets which otherwise involve to wait in queue for long hours. Infact personal guide for Green tour, personal attention, nice food, we were just in love with the stay!!

Good for a one night stay only. Amenities are basic and customer service is bad, hardly anyone cares for you post check in. Couldn't utilize the restaurant since you would have to place your order at least a 'decade' in advance for them to prepare. Good thing is the location right opposite to the counter for all the jungle activities....

We stayed their on 20th December, 2016. It is a decent accommodation in a very natural setting. Stay their if you want to stay amidst a natural surroundings. The small cottages are decent one. However, they are not very comfortable. You will be disappointed if you want hotel like facilities. However, the surroundings and the greenery compensate for the limitations....

We stayed in bamboo groove for 3 days and we had a very good experience. Pros 1) Cheaper than all other hotels in the location. (There are some cheaper home stays though) 2) Location is perfect. It is located in the town with all shops near by. It is also near to the tiger reserve entrance (800mts ) and kumily...

Bamboo Grove amazed me with the beautiful mini villas and the awesome food. The hotel is comparatively cheap and I really didn't expect this much for this price. You will get a small villa with a sit out, double bedroom and a attached bathroom all made up of bamboo and eucalyptus. Don't expect big rooms. The rooms are small just...

I was really surprised when I just get in to "Bamboo Grove" resort. After seeing the property my co-travelers asked me "Are you sure that this cost only Rs.1500/" and I was forced to confirm it at the reception. Note that all rooms are individual cottages, while few are cottages with 2 rooms. Hospitality and food at its best. Like...

The quaint huts are located in a quiet end of town, just a short walk from shopping and the bustle of Kumily. Food here is amazing and the resort supports a wonderful local initiative for the local tribe. The huts can be a bit 'airless' and could maybe use screening on the windows (instead of bars), but they have very...
