Such a wonderful experience. Even their follow-up before checking in, and organizing with cottage staff was really good. The stay is right inside the jungle. The food here was very good and tasted like home food. The 4-5 Km (guided) trek in the morning is a fantastic experience. Highly recommended for a holiday stay at teju kutir resort, Dhandeli.

The resort and its facilities are very nice and the services are good too. The resort's rooms have an ethnic feel and are just apt.

The hotel is quite close to the jungle. Free pickup and drop-off from Dandeli Town are provided by the hotel. The rates are quite nominal. The resort could have been in good condition earlier, but now is in a state of disrepair. The lower level staff are courteous and prompt. Adventure tours - Rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, jungle safari, etc can be booked through the resort. The rooms are quite small and not maintained well.
