A Holiday to Cherish - JLR Kings Sanctuary Resort

The JLR Kings Sanctuary Resort is a haven for nature-lovers and pleasure-seekers alike. Set in the midst of 40 acres of lush lawns and orchards that grow mangoes as well as various other Indian and exotic fruit-bearing plants and trees, the Kings Sanctuary Resort will surely appeal to the serious wildlife enthusiasts as well as leisure travellers looking for luxury in an unspoilt natural environment.

The Kings Sanctuary Resort has 24 air-conditioned luxury suites and cottages with imported handmade furniture for your ultimate comfort. Other amenities like swimming pool, conference hall, and a wide range of activities for both adults as well as children, including jungle safaris into the Nagarhole National Park accompanied by naturalists, make the Kings Sanctuary an ideal resort for family vacations and corporate travellers alike.

The name Nagarhole comes from two constituent words – Naga means snake and hole means streams; many meandering streams are found in this area and, therefore the name. The Nagarhole Reserve is home to a good population of Tigers, Leopards, Asiatic Elephants and Gaur along with several other species of mammals, reptiles and birds.

With a mix of cottages, suites, and villas, we cater to all traveller needs.

Garden Cottage: Garden cottages can be the perfect choice of accommodation in the middle of the forest while traveling with family. Designed to ensure total comfort, these cottages have a living room, a bedroom, and an open-roof bathtub along with a personal garden space. The cottages are equipped with all the modern facilities to make your stay luxurious and comfortable while keeping you in pleasant, natural surroundings.

Emperor Suite: Keeping everything elegant and contemporary in focus, the Emperor Suites at Kings Sanctuary are perfect for the travellers who value grandeur and luxurious arrangements. Located deep within the property premises, these suites comprise a premium sized living room, a huge bedroom with a bathtub, along with a private balcony facing the forest area.

  • Sharavathi Wildlife Sanctuary, located in the Shimoga district in the Western Ghats, and spread over 431 SqKm is a must-visit.
  • Linganamakki dam stretching 2.74 KM across the Sharavathi River is a popular tourist attraction around here.
  • Another tourist hotspot is Unchalli Falls, also known as Lushington Falls, which is a waterfall created by a 116-metre (381 ft) drop in the Aghanashiniriver.
  • In case you plan your visit in winter or early summer, do plan a trip to Burude falls in Karwar. For the pious visitors, a trip to Sigandur village is a must-do.
  • Shree Choudeshwari Temple is named Sigandur, and Mother Choudeshwari is called ‘Sigandureshwari’; built in the 18th century, Shri Choudamma Devi is said to have the strength to protect pilgrims from thieves.

While the JLR Kings Sanctuary Resort Nagarhole is suitable for travel all year round, the October to May months is ideal for spotting animals and birds, since travel within the park is easier. It is better to avoid monsoon season if you are keen on wildlife spotting or birding.

March to May: The soaring temperature causes the forest to get dry, and trees start shedding leaves making wildlife sighting relatively easier. It’s an excellent time for birdwatching.

June to September: Being the monsoon season here, it is ideal for nature lovers looking for a quiet time to unwind since the area receives plenty of rainfall. Safari may be stopped owing to overcast conditions, and during heavy rains, the park may be closed for visitors. Watch out for leeches during a nature walk!

November to January: The locale is at its best during this winter period as the forest is at its lush green, vibrant best after the monsoon season. Many migratory birds transit the area during this time.

We enjoyed very much our stay at Dandeli. The location and surroundings are perfect. We were also impressed with the way Govt. of Karnataka is taking measures to retain and maintain the forests of Dandeli.The food was good too. The activities were also timed well and the staff is also well trained. We also thought the karwar location is perfect and the activities there were fun too..!! Also the food was good.

Go Wildlife-Spotting and Bird Watching in the Nagarhole Wildlife Sanctuary: Nagarhole National Park is also known as Rajiv Gandhi National Park – a wildlife reserve in the South Indian state of Karnataka. A part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, the park has the Brahamagiri Mountains as the backdrop, filled with Teak, Rosewood and Sandalwood trees. The Kabini River flows through the picturesque jungle-scapes, making it an ideal habitat for Bengal tigers, Asian elephants, striped hyenas, leopards, sloth bears, antelopes, barking beer, jungle bison and sambar deer. More than 250 species of birds are also found here, especially near the Kabini River. Blue bearded bee-eater, Malabar whistling thrush, common osprey, duck, and herons are spotted usually.

Indoor / Outdoor Games and Activities: Unwind with a variety of Indoor Games such as Table Tennis, Playing Cards, Carom Board, Snakes and Ladders, Ludo, Chess, Chinese Checkers, etc; or else engage in some physical activity as part of Outdoor Games like Cricket, Volley Ball, Badminton, or else, simply enjoy a bonfire. Boating at Kabini Dam about 46 KM away is another popular activity. For adrenaline junkies, Coorg White Water Rafting is available at a distance of 54 KM from the Resort (subject to seasonal conditions).

Other Sightseeing

  • Cascading along the Brahmagiri Mountain Range in the Coorg district of South Karnataka, also known as the LakshmanaTirtha Falls, it has religious significance too.
  • Another must-visit place is Kuruvadweep or Kuruva Island (approx. 60 Km away), which is a 950-acre protected river delta comprising three densely wooded uninhabited islands and a few submergible satellite islands, in the Wayanad district, Kerala, India.

  • Since you'll be spending some time outdoors, do take along your hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, torch, mosquito repellent, waterproof camera, binoculars and other photography gear etc.
