Wild Grass Lodge
Reviewed 8 November 2013

The Wild Grass was one of the better places when it first hit the scene in Kaziranga. It still is a good place to stay while in Kaziranga. The rooms are nice and the food is also great. The swimming pool is not much of use during winters. The cultural programme held in the evenings give you a sense of the local Ahom culture.

Stayed at Wild Grass two days & nights this October.The property encompasses a large area, lots of greenery all around, full of trees of different kinds & bamboo groves. There are 2 multistory residential blocks, well spaced out, each with 9 rooms. The rooms have an old world ambiance, no AC's or TV's & the floors are wooden. Each room is named after a site in the Kaziranga National Park. There are two cottages as well, kept for the elderly & guests travelling with heavy gear. I understand during the peak season, 2-3 fully equipped tents are also installed to accommodate guests. The Dining Room cum restaurant & the administrative office are in a separate Assam type building, located about 100 m from the residential blocks. The Dining Room is spacious, decorated with interesting artifacts & trophies and has the ambiance of a tea planter's club. Nice. While morning & evening tea are served in the rooms, lunch & dinner have to be taken in the Dining Room. The menu is limited but tasty & wholesome. The staff are courteous & friendly. The resort has in-house guides to take guests on bird sighting trips to the nearby tea estate areas & on bird & animal sighting trips to the peripheries of the Kaziranga National Park during the off season & once the Park re-opens on 1st November, to inside the Park as well. One caveat: The property is located about half a kilometer inside from the highway & there is no signboard on the highway, so unless you are alert, you may miss out the narrow dirt road leading to the resort & overshoot it completely!

Room Tip: Since the floors are wooden, it is better to go for rooms at the top to avoid noise, especially if t...

we were on our first visit to KazIranga National Park, the home for the one horned rhinos. While searching through internet and lonely planet we chanced upon the name of Wild Grass Lodge. The trip was in february 2012. we contacted the wild grass lodge on wildgrasskaziranga@gmail.com. and also through phone. There was immediate response and we received quite bit of information on Kaziranga and also about visit to the National park as also on the travel facility. The proprietor Manju Barua himself and his staff were communicative and assured us of a good stay.

When we were approaching Kazirahga we contacted the staff of wild grass and we were asked to get down at Kohra, and as no local conveyance was available we contacted the wild grass lodge and they sent their jeep and we landed at the lodge around 6-30 p.m. and opted to stay in the old block of the s hotel blocks in wild grass.

Wild Grass lodge has a old world charm and we were charmed by the environment. The flooring and ceiling are of wood and the furniture are of wood and cane and blends beautifully to the enviorns of your room. There is provision for cross ventilation and at any part of the year the stay will be present. In the natural environs the lodge is located there is no need for any air conditioners and the lodge has remained eco friendly by not going for airconditioners. The Wild Grass lodge offers complementary break fast. One can also opt for full board facility. We were delighted to meet interact with former BBC correspondent Mark Tuly, during our stay at Wild Grass and he was one of the guests at the place.

You will hear the sounds of chirping of birds and noises of the forest insects. The dining hall is extremely beautiful and has nice wooden furniture, nice table clothes and other artefacts which add to the decor. There also photographs and paintings of birds and animals.

It is a experience to be experienced. The charm of the place lingers on. The Wild grass people booked for our elephant rides as well as the jeep drives through the national park.The trip to kaziranga, watching the one horned rhinos, wild boars, elephants, water buffalos, deers and host of birds including vulchurs in the kaziranga ranges of western, central and eastern ranges made it very ;meorable. Elephant rides are only in western and central ranges..

Wild grass is situated outside the Kaziranga National Park. Kaziranga's nearest airport is Jorhat. But Guwhati is a convenient international ariport and takes about 5 hours by sumo or Car.. The airport at Guwhathi is named after the first Chief Minister, Gopinath Bardlai, who was an extremely honest man and when he died in office, The great Sardar Patel, happened to arrange for a sum of Rs.4,000/- to Mrs.Bardlai, to take care of the expenses for their living.

Gowhathi is also well connected by train from Calcutta and New Delhi. You can either drive down from the Airport or the Railway Station. You can also reach kaziranga by state road transport bus.. You will have to get down at Kohra and if you contacted they will arrange for your transportation from kohra, opposite to it is the Central Range.. If you are coming by a hired vehicle or own vehicle you will ;have to take a turn at the marker of k.m.373 on national Highway 37. The wild grass experience and the kaziranga national park was out of the world experience and it still lingers on us and we look forward for a visit again..

If you are someone who is looking for a typical forest lodge, and a very natural one too, this is the one. its not a luxurious one, but still very nice.

Food is a bit of a problem here, but the basic food which they serve is good.

Overall a very good one.

Superb hotel, we stayed there for two nights. Local tour was arranged by them without any hectic. Location was little bit interior, so private vehicle is compulsory. One thing that is very attractive is the forest ambiance which is must for the hotel near any national forest. They have arranged local dance program for us as complimentary which was surprise to us. Worth staying there

Whenever I travel to upper Assam I used to have lunch in this property. But last month
when I went to the wild grass the whole place looked creepy to me. Common bathroom was dirty beyond comfort.I waited and waited than went to their kitchen to order my food. Reply came we have so many orders, wait for 2 hours or GET LOST. The property was excellet 4 to 5 years back. If the management continues like this I think wild grass will be closed down in months time. or people like me will complain to India Tourism to terminate their license.

Whenever I visit Kaziranga , I call up this hotel & stay here . This time it was a last minute call in the peak season . But they still managed to give us a room . This is not a fancy property , but for jungle visits , this is adequate . They know what is required . And the price is cheap . The food is tasty and adequate portions are served . Breakfast Buffet is not lavish , but good . Rooms are reasonably sized , but a writing table would have been better in the room .
