If you’re thinking of indulging yourself with a quick escape, make it to Waterwoods for the romantic atmosphere, riverside lounging, plenty of wildlife and eco-chic rooms.
Tigers, Infinity Pools And A Sky Full of Stars At Waterwoods Lodge Kabini
While I do love the rugged outdoors and the campsites, there’s something about eco-luxe that is rather appealing. So when someone says infinity pools, tigers, elephants and four-poster beds in the same breath, I’m in. And Waterwoods Lodge in Kabini ticks all those boxes.
Sandwiched between the Bandipur and Nagarhole Wildlife parks, this luxury resort is also smack on middle of the Kabini river, which means unparalleled views and even more likelihood of seeing wildlife. Doing justice to the photos on the website, the property is originally a colonial-style building that’s now expanded on both sides to include an al fresco common dining area.
But that isn’t to say you should skip out on action. Hop onto an ATV and zip around the tree plantations that lines the river banks. Spotting crocodiles, elephants and if luck is wearing stripes, then a tiger, is also not uncommon. Swimming or rather wallowing in the infinity pool is rejuvenating, as is a Balinese massage at the spa on-campus. Want to get really wild? Paddle out into the middle of the river in a canoe for some solitude. Pick the two-seater ones if you have a BFF or SO in tow.
