The location, the beauty of the environment, the proximity to Kanha National Park, and the lovely architecture of the cottages all add up to a fantastic place to get away from the city and commune with nature. We were first time visitors but Isabelle and Karan welcomed us as friends and made us feel at home from the minute we... More

As the car turned onto the driveway, we could see the owner Karan and staff waving and waiting to greet us with chilled cloths. Karan led the way over a wooden bridge through an airy bulding which held the dining and lounge areas.... More

The lodge is situated a few minutes drive from one of Kanha National Park gates. The 4 cottages and guest area overlook the Banja River. The water level was low whilst we were there but... More

Beautiful lodges, simply but elegantly furnished with style. Fantastic location, serenely quiet at all times and only a short drive to Kanha Park entrance. Food, we really liked this!... More

Its a surreal experience...the jungle, the staff, Karan and Isa, the surroundings, the amenities, the property, the royal treatment, the sounds, the river....and the glorious Beast. Whether you call it romance or an adventure, it is something you need to experience. Choose the right month, speak to Karan, book your tickets and leave the rest to them. Once in a... More
