Accommodation, Western India

Woods at Sasan


The first and only boutique resort in Gir, the Woods at Sasan is located within an eight acre mango orchard around 10 minutes’ drive from the park entrance.  Each of the 38 rooms is decorated with local materials and each feature either a private garden or open-air terrace.  There is a pleasant swimming pool plus four excellent restaurants serving a range of local and western meals.  By far our favourite is the Swadesh which serves delicious and authentic vegetarian dishes from the region.  There is also an excellent Ayurveda, Yoga and Wellness centre.

It was absolutely amazingly fabulous. Wonderful, wonderful sightings of The Ghost. We were so very very fortunate and privileged to have been able to see, not once but each day this amazing cat. Words really cannot describe the trip. I have wanted to do it for so long and not only did it come about but I had spectacular views of the premier Cat. I cannot thank you enough for making a dream come true.
