Gaudoc Bengaluru, India
Good for silent vacation with friends....
Overall it was a pleasant experience , would be more suitable if u want "nothing to do" kind of place,, just relax and chat.
Secret Ivory is located at dead end road, towards the forest, it provides some seclusion, though there are resorts and houses on the other side. Food quality needs lot of improvement. There is a mention of buffet , but you will be asked to opt for ala-carte. Prices don't match the quality or the taste.
Otherwise nice friendly staff, good service, clean bathroom.
Camp fire was arranged during which we spotted a Lone tusker just near the fence of the resort, below the tree house -- which was the high point of stay.
Nothing other than this....(Safari is "road safari"---so just skip it,, u have come through the same road anyway.....trek is 600 per person...with prior warnings that u may not sight anything too....no pool, only carrom, shuttle, cards, TV and ur friends...
I suggest the owners to add some hammocks, one or two swings, merry go round etc....so that kids will have something extra to do. Table tennis, volleyball court and archery can be made available, just to get the guests occupied during the afternoons and early evenings.
Weather was surprisingly good even in peak summer.
