Description - Cottage

DIPHLU RIVER LODGE
We have built 4 individual cottages and 4 semi-detached cottages, raised on stilts above the ground. Made of bamboo and thatch, they are all air-conditioned. We have now added a further 4 individual air-conditioned cottages made of bamboo and thatch bringing the total capacity to 24 guests. All cottages sleep 2 and have been beautifully designed to make full use of local materials and artefacts and blend in with the stunning natural surroundings. All are well-appointed and charmingly furnished with individual interiors. Each has a seating area with comfortable cane furniture, a writing desk, mini-bar, safe, small fridge and tea & coffee machine as well as top-quality beds and mattresses. The very spacious separate cottages have a wide folding glass door opening onto a thatched verandah with cane day bed and inviting chairs, and overlook the Diphlu River and National Park, while at the rear a deck with sun loungers looks across farmland. The semi-detached cottages all have equally attractive large balconies from which to savour the magical surroundings in the open air. All shower bathrooms are en-suite with roomy dressing area and fitted wardrobe.

High above the river is the Machan. (Machan, pronounced ma chaan, means "jungle platform".) This has air-conditioned sitting and dining areas opening onto a large verandah with high thatch ceiling and bamboo floor. Guests can congregate here to swap the day's jungle stories over a drink or a delicious meal, sink onto sofas with a book from the library, relax by the fireplace on chilly winter evenings, enjoy an al fresco breakfast on the verandah after returning from early morning safari, watch for birds or scan the opposite bank for wild animals.

Further along the river bank a jetty will enable our guests to embark on river trips in dugout canoes, from which they can look out for otters and for buffalo, deer or rhino grazing on the far bank. This River Bank area is also perfect for the barbecues and camp fires we arrange - or as just another idyllic spot for a sundowner while watching the vivid colours of sunset across the river.

The grounds of the lodge have been carefully planned to preserve the natural environment. As you enter from the road you pass through a zone planted with trees and bamboos, past an open area where we hold tribal dance performances, before you leave your car at the ridge where the land slopes down to farmland, the main resort and river. Steps lead down to railed bamboo walkways over the paddy field and other crops, linking the cottages and Machan without disturbing the agriculture. The eco-friendly operation of the resort includes re-cycling grey water for irrigation.

Neighborhood

KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK, ASSAM
The National Park covers about 430 sq kms, bordered on the north by the Brahmaputra River and on the south by the Karbi Anglong hills. The largest number of one-horned rhinoceros in the world roams its swamps, grasslands with tall thickets of elephant grass and areas of mixed deciduous and tropical semi-evergreen forest. It is home to a wide variety of other animals and birds, and the open vistas make it relatively easy to see many species of wildlife in a day.
