Dhole's Den


Dhole's Den is derived from the Dhole, the Asiatic wild dog (Cuon alpinus). For many years it was hunted down as vermin but it is one of the most fascinating hunters in the Indian Jungle with a complex and unique social hierarchy. The dholes live in packs and are organised perfectly under the leadership of an alpha male and alpha female. The population of the Dholes has been decimated in the various national parks in India and a notable population remains only in national parks like Kanha, Periyar and Nagarahole and of course Bandipur.

Dhole's Den offers 5 spacious living units (2 rooms, 1 Suite and 2 bungalows). The guests rooms in the main house are on the first floor. The space for living and sleep intermingle with each other. Space, light, air and sight are the forefront of all the units. Large glas sliding doors offer a panoramic and unhindered view of the landscape and the Niligiri Mountains. Ever changing vistas and hues ranging from misty mornings, village scenery with cowherds passing by to golden sunsets are a treat to watch.

The suite with its over 105 square metres and a large private balcony offers ample space for creative thinking and relaxation. The whole building is placed on the north/south axis so that the course of the sun can be followed by you.

The two separate built bungalows offer a spacious living, bed area and balcony. The living, bed and the bath are placed in such a way so as to offer privacy even without any walls or doors. The bright and friendly bath area offers even a shower open to the sky and even a view to the mountains both giving a special touch of freedom.
