Evolve Back Kuruba Safari Lodge, Kabini


Dine under a canopy of stars, retreat to luxury thatched-roof huts with private Jacuzzis or pools.

From its highly rated personalised service to its commitment to ecological responsibility, Evolve Back Kuruba Safari Lodge is for the intrepid explorer who loves the luxury touch. It’s back to nature on a whole new level at this jungle lodge overlooking the Kabini River. Imagine stargazing from the Sundowner Deck, having dinner around the campfire as traditional Karuba dancers bless the night, drifting along the river on a traditional coracle or heading out on safari into the Nagarhole National Park in search of Asian elephant, tiger and leopard. 

Inspired by Kadu Karuba tribal villages, huge thatched roof Pool and Jacuzzi Huts echo the region’s culture with zebra throws and tribal prints and provide stunning accommodation; think private plunge pools, lavish bedrooms and outside/in bathrooms. Dining is a dream, whether you float along the river on a candlelit cruise, sit by the water at fine dining restaurant Honeycomb to watch the pink sunset or feast on speciality platters at Karuba Grill. Wind your way through this Ayurveda-style village under a forest of cotton silk and mango trees and you’ll end up at an infinity pool teetering on the edge of the stunning lake, at the spacious family pool or perhaps at Vaidyasala, the hotel’s therapeutic spa.
