Chitvan was a great experience for us. The best part for us was the extremely helpful and friendly staff, be it Amit (naturalist), Sanjay who we only briefly met (naturalist), Ajay (chief chef) or Mr Agarwal (General Manager). The stars, fireflies at night, stillness of the night, jungle environment and the attention we got during our stay was outstanding. My... More

I am trying to think of something negative to say.. Perhaps the fact that between wonderful tasty food and taking safaris back to back (which means you do not have time to exercise at all..) will make you gain a few kgs... I totally enjoyed my stay at Chitvan. Staff was really friendly and everything worked like clock work. Safaris... More

After a long and tiring journey, we arrived at Chitvan convinced that we had made the wrong choice - our safaris were from the gate that was 70 hard km from here. We were looking to get out from there. We snapped at the help and the naturalist. The property is nice, we have stayed in similar places before. They... More

We drove down from Jabalpur and almost lost our way a couple of times, but every time we called Chitvan, a polite and an endearing voice on the other side guided us back on the correct path. The astonishing part was when we arrived we forgot the journey entirely. The staff made us very comfortable and soon everyone in the... More

The lodge is set in a remote corner of Kanha near the Mukki gate, very close to the core area. We had stayed in a suite and found the accommodation to be of top quality.

Chitvan lodge was more than just a jungle lodge and its a kind of experience that one must take time off from safaris to enjoy. I regreted not having stayed another night without the burden of having to go to safaris. Rooms were large, impressive and with a character that was so pleasing. Service was impeccable and Chitvan is geared... More

Chitvan is way in the interiors - “core” zone of Kanha. Its secluded and approximately 15 mins interesting drive from the main gate of the park. HOTEL IS A MIX BETWEEN A CLASSIC JUNGLE LODGE and modern resort. We were staying in a two bedroom cottage suite and the rooms are charming and comfortable with a nice sit out. And... More
