Imagine leaving behind the heat and dust of the city and as you relaxing somewhere in the hilly area, surrounded by greenery and feel the fresh air. I’d been waiting to visit Jim Corbett for a long time, so my stay at The Golden Tusk resort was a dream come true for me. But surprisingly, the experience was delightful for me not for the safari but for the property and the great hospitality of the staff. The way I received the warm welcome, it was a sense of compassion to me. Also, what could I say about the resort; an unmissable experience, with the serenity of relaxation, an escape from the noisy city life.
The amazing welcome began as soon as I stepped from the train Uttar Samparkkranti Express which drove me from Delhi. I flashed the most gleaming smile by the staff members of the property who were waiting for me for the past 30 minutes.
As soon as I reached the handle of the cab, my first question “shall I get to see the tiger??”. When I heard they have some different plans for me, trust me for a second I felt low but when I touch the gate of the resort ‘The Golden Tusk’ my lowness faded away, as I discovered myself the most energetic person on the earth.
Snugly amidst nine acres of leafage and tranquillity and on the banks of the serene river Dhela, situated at the countryside of Ramnagar this luxurious resort is just 2 minutes drive from Jim Corbett National Park. Mixed with Villas, Suites and Luxury tents almost 59 individual set up spread around with 2 swimming pools and lush green meadows.
The rest of the property featured stunning attractions in everywhere and it could be awesome Spa or the small cosy corner of the Bar or the huge playgrounds ( for Volleyball, Basketball, Croquet, Badminton, Open squash etc). What I can say more about it! there is everything under one roof and it could be Kids activity zone, Gymnasium, Indoor playroom, adventure zone where anyone can pump up the adrenaline rush with zipline, Rappelling, Wall Climbing, Ladder Climbing and so much.
The entire property with all its contemporary dribbling with vibes of misty woods of greenery. The plants they set up in the property I doubt if anyone can find in other places together. Amidst this view with green and green, you will surely find serenity.
My suit room sat at the corner of the property’s 9 acres where I could visualise the property at one end and the other end it was beautiful Dhela village. I walked across the pebbles path and looked around the vast collection of known and unknown plants and spellbound with the maintenance. I had to climb the stairs to reach my suite and when I entered my room; Voila! Everything was just perfect as per the theme. A proper sitting room with a cosy sofa set, minibar, air conditioner already switched on to think about the guest comfort zone. The main part that attracted me that they used a glass water bottle instead of a plastic bottle of packaged drinking water. This eco-friendly step of this property just gave me the ear to ear smile.
Washroom, closet everything was perfect with the perfect colour combination but the most fascinating part was the master bedroom with a big TV set. Loved the cosy corner of the working table. The most luxurious experienced for 2 days and enjoyed every single moment of it.
In any property review without food, the review is incomplete. From where I started, should I tell my experience about the first sip of the local kumaoni welcome drink which was incredible in taste or should I share my experience of everyday’s breakfast, lunch and dinner? Who could ignore the lavish buffet with sumptuous drooling food?
The amazing taste of baked lemon butterfish, baked mushroom, mutton rogan josh are still in my mind.
If I named one place perfect to stay at Corbett, that’s The Golden Tusk Resort. The best combo of luxury and comfort with an ample amount of warm welcome. Every possible arrangement they do to make the guest comfort. It Could be a kids corner, afternoon thella stall hi-tea corner or a nice romantic evening with the musical night. The experience and the delightful staff made my journey and stay so memorable. Hope to visit for a longer period soon!
