Benefits of Budget resorts

In this category, we usually find tourists covering multiple destinations or wildlife photographers or tourists from nearby cities or solo travelers. Here we try to understand why should we go with budget categoy of resorts.

  • For wildlife photographers, who would have limited budget and would like to spend more in safari activity should stay here. As we spend more time in jungles thus resort luxury will remain under utilized by them thus no use of spending more in standard or deluxe resort.
  • If you are solo visitor with limited budget and covering more destinations, then consider popular budget accommodation option. At present, good home-stay option are not available in Kanha to resorts are suitable for them.
  • If you would like to spend many days in Kanha and would like to get connected with local society then budget accommodation options are good. They have most of the staff from local society. They are also located on main road or in villages thus you have chance to get connected with local people.
  • If your are looking for stay option with basic facilities like neat and clean room, clean washroom, hot water and basic meal then use above listed resorts. They all will match to your expectation.

Problems of Budget resorts

It is obvious that when we are living in a budget resort, we should not expect luxury amenities and services. Otherwise we may get disappointed. Disputes or complaints are more often comes in budget category of accommodation because of mis-match of customer expectation and managements services. Many points were not made clear to guests, in advance, thus this mismatch occurs and often results in disappointment. It is duty of both, guest and hotel managements to talk openly and clear all sort of doubts, queries and stay rules. Through good dialogue we can reduce scope for complaints. Let check some points of disappointment or dissatisfaction.

  • Power backup: When we visit Kanha in summers, air-condition is must to face the summer heat waves. Almost all budget resorts are offer it. But problem comes when we face power-cut. Many budget resorts either don't have power backup facility of don't allow AC during power-backup. This often results into dis-satisfaction.
  • Meals: At budget category of resorts, hotel management offers rates by considering single non-veg meal, either in lunch or dinner. Often this points was not made clear to guest. When guest demands, non-veg meal in both lunch & dinner, scope for dispute arises. In such condition, hotel management ask for extra charge for additional non-veg which is disliked by guest. Similarly guests are often not clear of menu and ask for any such dish which is not a part of hotel regular menu and thus charged additional. Budget resorts offer limited dishes thus don't expect too much variation in this category of stay.
  • Noise: At budget resorts, we may face problem of some group visitors. Who often talks too much or do noisy discussion. Due to good strength they often over-power atmosphere & facilities of resort like restaurant seats, swimming pool etc. If you are of reserve nature and looks for peaceful stay in jungle then you may feel inconvenience.
  • Slow service: Sometimes, if you are staying at any such budget resort, which is not doing good business so we may have to face slow service problem. Reason behind this problem will be scarcity of staff due to poor financial condition of resort. Staff strength often determines the promptness of service.
