Stayed the resort in August 2016. Excellent property. Mesmerising river view from room. Rooms are very specious. Swimming pool is clean and well maintained. Food is excellent and service is very good. Their hospitality really let's you feel the value of their brand. Well informed staff adds value to the resort.

We were a big group of 28 people including children. The hotel is located just next to the sanctuary HQ. The property is a little dated but people have a good service ethos. Even in the weather that was over 40 degrees in the day, they are always ready to help. Food is average and could be better especially the...

Gir is home to more than 500 Lions and the first time we went there during winter, we couldnt see a single one in the wild. So we chose to go during peak summer, and it was a trip worth remembering. Taj Gateway is a new property in Gir, right next to the sanctuary and it has a great view...

We stayed here while we were on safari in Gir National Park. On returning from safari the staff in the restaurant were very welcoming and would make us the breakfast we wanted. For lunch and dinner they couldn't be more helpful with what we required to eat
