Dhole’s Den Resort

Bandipur Tiger Reserve

Karnataka

Dhole’s Den gets its name from the Asiatic wild dogs that frequent the area, together with elephant herds and big cats from the bordering park. The ground floor is large, big and airy for dining and relaxation. Upstairs and in separate villas, spacious guest rooms with sliding doors opening onto terraces give you panoramic and unhindered views of the jungles leading to the blue Nilgiri Mountains beyond. Locally sourced fabric and furnishings have been used for the interiors lending an authenticity to your visit.
