  1. This resort is situated 10 kilometres away from Ramnagar station and is a very good resort. I got a room overlooking the river and every morning seeing the river is a refreshing sight. The rooms of the resort are very good; try checking some online Club Mahindra Reviews, before you go. You will get to see pictures that other travelers have put up and it will offer you a view of how the rooms in the resort are. I had checked a couple of reviews before I set on my journey to Corbett national park. My check-in formalities were smooth and I loved the view from my room. This is a very nice place to unwind over the weekend.

    Staff at the club Mahindra resort is well-trained and very good. Food is good and offers enough variety, mostly North Indian style cooking. The breakfast was good and I enjoyed my stay there very much. The club Mahindra arranged safaris are a great way of exploring the Corbett national park. Go for boat rides on the river and take massages in the health and fitness center. The staff at the club Mahindra resort is so well trained that staying at the resort is a great way to relax. I enjoyed my trip to the Corbett national park and it is money well spent.
