    Destination

    Located on the border of Karnataka and Goa, Dandeli is known for its thriving forests and varied wildlife. Thanks to the river Kali that rages through this region, it is also turning into an adventure activity hub. When the water is at a suitable level, thrill-seekers can go on coracle rides, whitewater rafting, and other fun.

    The lodge lies on the banks of the river Kali, a short drive away from the famous Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary. The rooms are cosy and well-equipped and offer you views of the river, and you'll have plenty of activity options both indoors and outdoors. The lodge also has a multi-cuisine restaurant, a well-stocked bar, a library with plenty of wildlife material, and outdoor leisure areas.
