Besides the abundant floriculture, the Golden Tusk Resort stands out for its location. A five minute drive from the property will take you to the Jhirna and Dhela safari zones. This puts visitors on the edge of the Corbett National Park and allows you to soak in the jungle atmosphere.
In order to do so, accommodation here is spread out over 44 rooms. The Luxury Tents offer a sense of adventure for those who’d like to imbibe the spirit of camping. As the name suggests, the Forest View Suites overlook the flora of Corbett and the resort’s carefully landscaped gardens. The Country View Suites are cosy cottages while the Villa Grande is meant for those looking for a tranquil getaway from city-life.
What really sets Golden Tusk apart from other Corbett resorts is its aspiration to blend in with the natural aesthetic of the region. The trees and bushes that line the entrance and dot the 7 acre property have all been specially sourced. This turns Golden Tusk into a bird paradise and every morning you can hear mynahs and various other passerines chattering away in the trees.
No boutique property is complete without a charming dining experience and the Golden Forest Restaurant offers dishes ranging from local delicacies to fine cuisines. With large windows affording a view of the forest all around, the restaurant is spacious and comfortable. The resort offers Water Dining that makes for a great candlelit experience of signature dishes while floating in the pool. The Gin Tree, situated right near the Golden Flower Spa, is the resort’s Bar and Lounge where the music is soft and the ambience perfect for a drink or three.
Whether you’re travelling with the kids or friends, Golden Tusk has something to offer. A dedicated child playing area complete with a jungle gym and evening play activities will keep the little ones on their toes. Regular safari and excursions into Corbett can be arranged by the resort that has a friendly and competent team of trackers and guides.
Although being a luxury getaway, Golden Tusk has carefully maintained the natural beauty of Corbett while offering its guests a memorable experience right on the edge of one of the country’s most picturesque tiger reserves.
