Dipti Karia
A hidden gem. Amazing place. Very clean rooms, good fresh food. Very courteous staff. Rooms: Neat and clean. Nearby activities: Velavdhar National Park and Salangpur temple both an hour away approximately Safety: Very safe Food & drinks: Good freshly made food
About 160 kms from Rajkot, took us almost 4 hours. Nestled in between the village of Dared, this heritage property is top notch in terms of service and comfort. Those little extra efforts from the staff make your stay memorable. Please try the Sun Down by the river and the star gazing on the terrace. Kids enjoyed the pool and games. Quality of Food and services compliment the regal Darbargadh, urging you to stay a bit more.
A hidden gem near Bhavnagar & just a 4 hour drive from Ahmedabad, Tree of life Dared lives up to its parent brand's standards & surpasses them too. A lot of activities in and around the property - be it village walks, cycling, dining by the sunset on the riverside, blackbuck safari at the national park & of course the renown Salangpur Hanuman temple - it's all there near this luxury resort. Recommending a minimum of 3-4 nights stay to enjoy it to the fullest.
