IORA - The Retreat,Kaziranga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2010

If you are looking for modern comforts when visiting the Kaziranga National Park, Iora is the place you should choose to stay. The property has all the comforts you can ask for, with high quality furnishings, satellite TV, a fully functional restaurant and more. The problem is the property could be anywhere in the world; it has little to show that it is at the world heritage site of Kaziranga National Park.

Go there if you want plush accommodation between your jungle safaris.

* Service: Good service. Housekeeping does their job well, you are well served at the restaurant and the guest relations staff is very courteous and helpful.
* Rooms: Different categories of rooms with clean, good quality furniture, sheets and towels. Air-conditioning in all rooms for the summer months. Bathrooms have running hot and cold showers. You have satellite television offering a wide variety of channels. Rooms have nice sit-outs for morning and evening tea, or even to soak in the sun. You have rooms of different categories going up to suites.
* Location: Very good location, near the entrance to two of the main zones of the park.
* Amenities: You have Wi-Fi internet but it is erratic and works best in the lobby area. There is a swimming pool too.
* Liked Best: The comforts.
* Liked Least: The architects could have made an effort to make the property to blend with the forests around.
* Food Quality: Quite nice food. With a vast selection of cuisines including local

We have just returned from IORA after holding our wedding reception there. All of our 30 of our global guests commented on how fantastic the hotel was. The rooms are spotless, service was faultless throughout and the whole trip ran smoothly and without stress for us - the wedding couple! We highly recommend the hotel for both individual and group travel to Kaziranga!

We were there at the property during Christmas time and the stay was okay. The rooms were well furnished and the food at the restaurant was passable, nothing much to write about. However, the problems that i faced during check-out are still rankling me and even after one month, the issues are still outstanding.
I made my payments through card and signed the bills etc and checked out. However, when i chkd my account statement, to my horror, i found that i had been debited twice by the Hotel. I called them up immediately. The initial response was that we will look into it but later after a few days the guys at the reception started passing the buck. I wrote emails etc but no response. My bank was howver receptive and promised to check with the hotel.
The callous response from the hotel shocked me. However, i got the number of a senior guy from the Hotel and he was quite receptive to me. he promised to get it resolved.
One month down, the money is still to be credited to my account though now i expect the gentleman from the hotel to resolve the issue.
The other issue was they billed me for a meal which we just did not have. They put some other room's food bill against my room and charged me for that. Because of oversight, i did not check closely during check-out.
So guys, be very very careful. The intentions may not be bad, but then the carelessness on their part can certainly spoil yr mood and affect yr pocket.
Still waiting for both the issues to be resolved.

I travelled to Kaziranga with family and was amazed to see the development in terms of resorts in the last couple of years. Iora was beyond our expectations, since everything was meticulously managed. From the delicious food to well landscaped surroundings it was a pleasure.

I am sure it being the "peak season" helped matters, but the rooms were massive and the evening entertainment and bonfire a lot of fun. And every room even has a balcony! I loved the superior rooms (the 2nd category, not sure what they are called) as the high ceiligns were wonderful. The manager was very helpful and helped us secure rooms at the very last moment. I mention this because the other resorts we called, simply hung up on us.

I was blown away with the service of the staff even when the hotel was running at its full capacity. Woud definitely visit again.

We loved the Iora resort for its excellent service, great food, good bar, cleanliness and general feel of the place. The rooms are nice, very clean and the sit-out area a bonus.
Apart from Kaziranga, just near the resort is also a small tea estate, which is good for those wanting to be on their own with nature for company.
As we visited in December, it was kind of cold and though mobile heaters were provided, we would've liked a better heating system.
The jeep safari to the park was fine, but we missed the elephant safari - am told those are generally overbooked. As these are operated by the government, not sure if the resort can do much on this front, but being on an elephant would've been the icing on the cake vis-a-vis our Kaziranga experience.

A great place to stay with amenities and rooms equivalent to any 5 star hotel at one third the price. The rooms are pretty massive for a hotel and each room has a balcony. The food servings are enormous, delicious and they have the choicest continental which is the best I have had in Assam. The food was definitely a pleasant surprise.

There was a wonderful ethnic dance program, along with the bonfire and service of food
and beverage in the garden even at 10 pm (in the middle of a winter night). The bathroom had abundant hot water, which is a rarity since most hotels in Assam or in general India, provide only a geyser to heat water in each room.


We were a big group of 17 and had member who had visited resorts all over the world including Kenya and South Africa (other wildlife resorts) and they all loved this place.

A great stay and will come again very soon.

Also we spotted a tiger in the national park!
