We drove to the hotel towards the end of Feb with my wife and two sons (the younger one was 2 months old). Thanks for the complimentary hibiscus drink they welcomed us with and I was very happy with the way they checked us in in a flash and gave us a room near the reception because of our young son even though everything seemed arranged to be easy to reach. The reception was wonderful too. I loved the area around Tulia spa, very quiet and serene.
Excellent all round Resort

After our safari experience we were booked here for 4 nights and we had a blast on each if them. There are lots of activities for kids and I must specially mention Mary of Ozone Kids club who took special care of our kids. The food as usual of all Sarova Hotels is well spread and amazing, catering to all. The night entertainment was also good, with acrobats, bollywood night, the dance on Jhoom barabar Jhoom was even better than the actual film.
