Singinawa holiday reviews

Michael, Judith & Lucy O'Connor

Date of trip: 17/01/2019


Number of people: 3

"Singinawa was disappointing in view of its Deluxe grading. The naturalists ( very good) and the managers were very warm, very engaging and very very helpful, and Ji , the manager was particularly helpful in getting Lucy to be seen by a local dentist, which we really appreciated. As a group of individuals we got on very well with the naturalists and managers which was good. Kriti , the assistant manager and her husband , Pranad, who was our naturalist were very engaging .warm and helpful. The Art Gallery is excellent and interesting and on the day of the rain, Kriti provided one to one Art tuition from a local Goad artist for my wife and also a cooking demonstration for me on another day , for which we are very appreciative. But someone needs to pay more attention to the state of the cottages and quality control their service , the state of the cottages, was poor , grubby and felt a bit neglected. I would not have booked it if I had known what it was like. The cottages need updating & a good clean every day ! The mini bar fridge stopped working after a day , I reported it but it was not fixed, some if the plug points did not work and even though it was cold only one small radiator was provided until we asked for another.The Tribes website says there is an open fire ...! not so... The Lodge just felt in also in need of a good make-over. The food was good on the whole , sometimes very good but a bit weird in the way they served some of it , such as spaghetti and other european food on the same plate as Indian food ! but they did stop that after we made it clear we wanted Indian food !!! as I think others may have also done. They always kept serving us whereas Indian guests seemed to be offered a buffet self service !!! On one of the colder . wetter days we were given dinner in the large dining room which was a large fire place. they didn't light a fire but instead had a small electric radiator for the whole room. We felt there was an element of penny pinching at times. When we hit with a storm as our 2nd drive started, the rainwear was completely useless ( & seemed cheap ) and the blankets felt grubby on the drives. Although the weather was unexpected , they should be prepared for such events . "
