All of the rooms here are magnificent with indoor and outdoor showers plus large bath and everything you could wish for, we spent alot of time on our verandah watching the Black buck we saw more here than in the park. The food was great with plenty of choice.

Travelers in Gujarat have definitely noticed a bit of a lack in the tourism industry. Although a beautiful state with developing tourism, the state is a bit behind in luxury resorts. BLACKBUCK LODGE WAS SUCH A TREAT! This is the definition of luxury living in India! We traveled all central India and I must say that the Blackbuck lodge was...

Nestled in the savannah consisting of a few refined cottages, each well-kept detail. The staff is very nice and the restaurant is great. You can see the Black Buck from your loggia. Wonderful! If you'll go in Gujarat you can't loose this!

The individual bungalows are all beautifully furnished and have all the facilities you need. The outdoor viewing platform is perfect and we were lucky enough to have a male blackbuck that took his afternoon siesta within a stone's throw of our bungalow. One afternoon he was joined by 2 females and they felt safe enough to walk right up to...

Blackbuck Lodge and Blackbuck National Park are incredible. We booked this as a side destination on our trip to Sasan Gir NP but it turned out to be one our best experiences in India. The lodge is absolutely beautiful. It is designed to blend and complement the natural landscape. The lack of fences mean you might awaken to blackbuck antelope...

Faint aroma of lemon grass and basil welcomed us as we used the baby pink refreshing towels on our arrival, with both reception and the rooms smelling of mandarin. It's a three hour drive from Ahmedabad and we arrived a little before 12 noon, earlier than expected and the resort wasn't expecting us, but our rooms were ready and the...

Deliberately held off on the review until back from India so I can compare. BBL is definitely the best place we stayed at in India. No competition. The national park is exceptional and there are herds of blackbucks, jungle cats, and blue bulls walking through the property at all times. The bungaloes are beautiful, well kept, and immaculately clean. You...
