In detail

A superb mix of chic, ethnic furnishings and traditional craftsmanship, the lodges are extremely comfortable with a separate bedroom and living room and have either a private pool or outdoor Jacuzzi. Take a swim in the infinity pool that appears to blend into the river and then get acquainted with Orange County Kabini’s resident elephant, Meenakshi.

Take a coracle ride down the Kabini River or visit a local tribal village for an insight into the culture of the Kuruba tribe. The following day, go on an Orange County Kabini jeep safari into Nagarhole National Park to catch sight of wild elephant, muntjack, antelope, macaques and the occasional leopard or tiger.

Jacuzzi Hut

Inspired in design by the mud-walled Hadis of the Kadu Kuruba , each of these mud-style thatched suites is steeped in the romance of bygone tribal living. The handcrafted king size beds, tribal-print curtains and split-bamboo ceilings are intrinsic to each hut. Bottle-gourd lampshades and tribal art elements harmoniously blend with the decor and the design in keeping with the tribal inspired theme. With a private space of 1233 Sqft, Jacuzzi Huts offer you sumptuously appointed living spaces, climate controlled bedrooms, luxurious open-courtyard-attached baths and airy verandas; but chances are you'll mostly be holding court in your very own personal open- to -air Jacuzzi.
