Top tips from our customers
‘Those who are looking for peace and nature, should book the associated, very small Resort "Duke's Forest Lodge". There is no distraction possible’
‘You should also visit Dukes Forest - the partner hotel is really in the jungle. You can take a trip there and then have lunch there. When I go to India again I'll go to Dukes for 2 or 3 nights and then to Nikkis Nest.’
‘only travel during the temple feast time if its of specific interest’
