*Panjim Inn
31st January Road, Fontainhas, Panaji, Goa
This is a very nice and friendly place close to the downtown area. Depending of how much money you want to spend there are three hotels (owned by the same person) locate next to each other. If you like the local food the restaurant is very good
Lodge at Pong
Kangra, Himachal Pradesh
Lodge at Pong on the shores of the Pong Dam, one of the largest man made lake in India (500sq.km's). Pong has been recognised by the Ramsar society as a Bird Sanctuary.
*Pai Viceroy Hotel
Jayanagar/Bangalore, Karnataka
The Pai Viceroy is a modern hotel located in a quite part of Bangalore. The food is excellent in the restaurant, but if I remember right no liquor
B R Hills Wildlife Resort
Biligiri Rangaswamy Sanctuary (B R Hills),K. Gudi, Karnataka
When I visited BR Hills Dr. Prashanth invited me to stay at his home, but I did visit the resort and I think it a good place to spend a few days. The birdwatching is definitely great
*Bison River Resort
Ganeshgudi, Dandeli National Park, Karnataka
Well managed with a friendly staff, this jungle lodge is well worth a visit. Located on the banks of the river Kali the birdwatching is great. The restaurant serves local food and has a bar (even Indian wine)
Jungle Home
12 Evergreen Street, 1st Main Udayanagar(Behind Shiva Temple), Bangalore, Karnataka
*Hotel Dasaprakash Paradise
104 Vivekananda Road, Yadavagiri, Mysore, Karnataka
If you do not like the noise of a big city, this hotel is located on a quite street and has all the amenities of a good hotel
Mugilu meaning “clouds” in Kannada
Sakleshpur, Western Ghats, Karnataka
*Wood Manor Hotel
M.G. Road, Cochin, Kerala
This is a good hotel to spend a day or two when you are visiting Cochin. Well run but a little noisy some times and a good restaurant
The Bamboo Grove Lodge
Periyar, Kerala
The Hornbill Camp
Thattekkad, Kerala
*Wild Palms Guest House
Mathrubhoomi Road, Vanchiyoor,Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), Kerala
A small but very nice hotel located in a quite residential area of Thiruvananthapuram. It’s owned by a couple and they dine with you in the restaurant
Wild Brook Retreat
Rajaji National Park, Uttarakhand
Here there are 400 species of birds in the area around called Rajaji National Park including Crested Kingfisher, Great Hornbill, Alpine Swifts, Chestnut-headed Bee-eaters, Brown Fish Owl, Mountain Scops Owl, Grey-headed Fish Eagle, Shaheen Falcon, Himalayan Ruby-throat, Slaty-headed Parakeet and many more. I will strongly recommend this place since this is just 200 km. from Delhi and is very well connected by rail and road as well as air. Birdingpal M Kulshreshtha
Chambal Safari Lodge
Jarar, Uttar Pradesh
The Chambal Safari Lodge has been extended and renovated and as with every previous year, over 2000 new saplings have been planted. The birds are multiplying and getting noisier, the dolphins are frolicking, the gharials, muggers and turtles basking and we are all awaiting our seasonal friends from Central Asia.
