Bordered on two sides by the Kabini River, the Evolve Back Kabini is a luxury resort modeled after a traditional, tribal village, with palm-thatched roofs. The resort’s eight cottages are split into two categories, either overlooking a pool or an open-air Jacuzzi; all cottages feature satellite television, plush beds, climate control, en-suite bathrooms, living room, and mini-bars. The Evolve Back Kabini has three restaurants; the Honey Comb, which serves international and regional cuisine in an open-air setting bordering the Kabini River; the Kuruba, a specialty eatery serving kebabs and grills; and By the Kabini, a private dining experience under an intimate, thatched-roof pavilion on the shores of the Kabini. Amenities include an infinity pool, a spa offering Ayurvedic treatments, a large, spacious family pool (complete with waterslide), and a serene reading lounge with views of the Kabini River. Visitors should note that there are a series of performances and activities, including tribal dances, rides in bullock carts, and, of course, interactions with Meenakshi, the resident elephant.
