            Location invites for relaxing times but manager and staff don't let you enjoy your holiday”

            SAPANA Lodget has nice assets and nicely situation at a small river with cushion corner and hammocks. Rooms and clean and comfortable although bathroom are a bit old fashioned. Normally the stay at SAPANA invites for relaxing after Safari and other tours. However manager and staff got extrem pushy and want you all the time to order meals, order canoe tours or order others. Given the comparable high price of the room such behavious doesn't match the standard. That is quite annoying and spoil the time of the stay. Alternatives are round the corner, even with pool. Food was not in particular tasty given the standard of the Lodge (in particular an old croissant fried or better burned in oil served in the morning) nor are many choices offered. It is fine to engage for village development and ecology but you have to leave it to your guests to decide which tour they going to book.

            We loved our time at Sapana Village Lodge! The whole atmosphere was so relaxing. The rooms were comfortable and my kids begged us not to leave. They loved the play ground and seeing elephants! The staff - from the front office to the restaurant and housekeeping were so kind. My young daughter fell one afternoon while there and five of the staff members ran to help her up and all checked in on her over the next day or so. It was so kind. We will certainly be back for another family holiday!

            This was the best place I stayed during the 11 days trip around Nepal. It had a great touch of nature to it with a river, elephants walking about, trees etc. The resort manager was very helpful and ensured I was comfortable throughout my stay. He helped me with the jungle safari to book me in with a family which reduced my cost and I was able to do exactly what I wanted to do -full day jeep safari. The chef, Bhim made his special butter chicken masala which is a must try for anyone. One regret-i wish I stayed longer.

            Lovely hotel and staff that run it. The rooms are sizeable and the location is perfect right on the river. We felt at peace once we arrived. Hot water didn't work first 2 nights but was fixed. Wifi is a bit patchy but usually due to electricity cut outs which aren't hotels fault. The hotel, as usual charges a stack of $$ on top of bus tickets, safaris etc so it's worth shopping around if you want to save. They told me that items sold in the hotel shop weren't found in town but they are which I found a bit dishonest. Would I stay there again? Yes, definitely - a little wiser

            Spectacular in every way”

            5-day stay with my husband and 6 year old daughter (who turned 7 during the stay). I've traveled to many 5-star hotels across Asia for work and Sapana staff were the most attentive I have experienced. The rooms were comfortable with a safari feel and garden a wonderful playground for kids to explore. There are many communal areas and the location of the lodge by the river meant that we saw elephants being washed every day. Despite my daughter's birthday landing on a festival day, staff managed to arrange a lovely cake for her. The lodge takes all feedback seriously and are working hard to create a new experience for their guests that is unique and different to the mass tours provided by others. There are many safari types to choose from and the lodge can tailor something to suit preferences, times, seasons, etc. Despite visiting during the end of the wet season we saw many rhinos, some from a very close distance on foot! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning in the dry season.

            My friend recommending this lodge and i'm really glad we booked it as we had an enjoyable stay. The staff are lovely and attentive and the location is beautiful. A peaceful haven away from all of the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. The rooms were basic but clean and the restaurant had a good selection of food. There are some elephants at the lodge so it was great to watch them bathe in the local lake whilst we had our breakfast. The hotel offers a range of tour options at Chitwan National Park. It is a little pricey for Nepal but the hotel makes up for it with cheap rooms.

            Really enjoyed the hotel particularly the family of elephants in the garden! Restaurant food was good but took a little time to cook as everything was fresh. Lovely location with beautiful views. Rooms were clean but fairly basic. The only issue we had was the 'hard sell' by the manager on the activities. We found them to be much cheaper by booking outside.
