Cosy and spacious chalet
Absolutely amazing!! We stayed in river lodge and everything is perfectly fine as photo shown on the apps. The large spacious glass dining area are so remarkable! The eco-friendly and tropical forest surrounding is really good for travellers who look for wellness and quietness. Inside the park provides you easy trail to waterfall and hanging wooden bridge so you don’t need to plan so much. I will definitely stay in river lodge again among all the other chalets choices

Nice accommodation; restaurant disappointing.
We stayed for 3 nights recently. We were very happy with the room (though it was extremely close to the entrance to the park, so noisy). The restaurant was a let-down - many of the menu items were unavailable, and the cleanliness of the plates, cutlery and tables left a lot to be desired. Considering the prices in the restaurant, this was a real disappointment. n option worth considering is to eat in one of the many local restaurants just outside the gates.

Disliked: Room comfort
Room not fullfill as per request
Online confirm bed type provide in bunk bed but end up with 2 single bed. Then the hotel personnel tell you their system did not know about the bunk bed requirements. I was, huh??? It’s problem that what show was not able to communicate to hotel operators??? And, the room illustration please reflect the truth. The photo is MISLEADING! The room and bed look spacious and ok but in actual, it’s quite limited space. Pls be remember that the hotel location vs the price, it shld have being a spacious one with this kind of price.
