Postcard Hotels announces the opening of The Postcard Gir Wildlife Sanctuary, in the land of the Asiatic lion.

Shares Kapil Chopra, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, The Postcard Hotel, “Our aim with The Postcard Gir Wildlife Sanctuary was to create an ultra-immersive yet a luxurious experience in the wild. Right from the onset, The Postcard Hotel has been passionate about building iconic experiences and focusing on unexplored transformative destinations.”

He goes on to say, ” A very strong pillar of the brand is sustainability, culture conservation and contributing as a meaningful hospitality brand. We were quite amazed that a lot of people had not been to Gir or heard of the majestic Asiatic lion. Our country has so much to offer and we knew right from the beginning we wanted to put Gir on the map. With 674 lions at last count, the sightings in Gir are phenomenal, yet the sanctuary is as pristine as ever with fewer jeeps and an expansive landscape.”

Expanding on his vision, Chopra adds, “The hotel is built to respect the surrounding forest and people. At our hotel, the silhouettes of the dry deciduous forest, the fragrance of the mango blossom, sound of birds and wildlife around give you the extraordinary experience of being tucked away in the wilderness. You can swim at sunset, with a beautiful evening sky and sight of the forest right next to you – we call that luxury!”

The all-new hotel features 15 beautifully appointed rooms in 16 acres of mango orchards, making it just the place to enjoy the riches of nature in the comfort of luxury.

The 15 rooms offer plenty of privacy ensuring that the only sounds you hear are the sounds of migrating birds, or of course, the unmistakable roar of a welcoming lion.

The smell of the fresh Kesar mangoes, the silhouettes of the raw forest, and the sounds of the birds add to the charm of the wildlife resort. And there’s so much more to experience in this pristine region of Saurashtra with its culture, cuisine and craft.

Raw yet luxurious, the rooms at The Postcard Gir are a modernist refuge in a surrounding that is as old as time itself. The rooms can be best described as roomy, with ample light and space letting in the changing light, and views of the sprawling mango orchards.

The well-designed menu acknowledges the region’s wider Parsi influence (Salli Boti, for instance) as well its more local ones. Including fresh pomfret from Veraval, the classic Gujarati thali, or of course, Khichdi.

Guests get a chance to visit the neighbouring National Park where animal sighting is always on the cards, thanks to the hotel’s offering of three safaris a day. A sighting is all but sure given the Gir National Sanctuary is home to 674 lions at last count. There’s more on offer beyond the company of lions, of course. There are exclusive outings like a leisurely picnic or a curated nature trail. In addition, a trip to the sandy beach at Diu provides an unbeatable experience.
