    Waterwoods EcoLodge nestles in a wide crook of the Kabini Backwaters. Peacefully green in the summer months, these waters lap the entire stretch of the resort playing a restoring lullaby. In the rainy days the waters, rich with silt, turn a dappled golden. Around these waters life unfolds in perfect natural rhythm, draping the land in raw splendour.

  • Waterwoods was a really enjoyable experience because it was quiet and exclusive compared to other resorts in Kabini. I believe in the philosophy of a small home style resort run unobtrusively and sustainably without too much of an impact on nature. Waterwoods exemplifies this philosophy. The home styled food was delicious and I appreciate the discreet service offered by the staff.
