One of the best outing ever. We went in a big group of 14 people. The place was very easy to locate. It is located exactly inside Dandeli and lies close to Ganeshgudi. Situated next to the river Kali, the resort offers a phenomenal view of the water. The best part about the place is you can clearly hear the sound of water from any corner of the resort. This is something that makes it stand apart from the other resorts. The key attractions of the resort are the water sports that are indeed worth the time and the money that you spend. You can definitely enjoy the Natural Jacuzzi of the resort which is sure going to give you an ultimate experience. Other fun activities included coracle and river rafting. Staff here at the resort is very quick and humble. Whenever, we have ordered for anything while our stay at the resort, the staff neither declined nor took too long to help us. Our demands were immediately met.

The entire experience of Dandeli water rafting was one to remember forever! We went as a group of strangers but those 4 hours of team work bound us so closely together that we returned as friends. The organisers were also experienced and trained which made us a little less worried about the whole experience. They instructed us very well on safety and how to follow their commands! It is important as if we don’t then we are only at risk! The rafting adventure itself was thrilling to no end and unforgettable! Whenever the raft was bumping the rapids, I used to have a knot in my stomach! Even if my friends were non-swimmers, they were very well taken care of by the instructors.
