One of the most wonderful places to stay... We loved it so much that we greedily added another day at this fabulous hotel. Thank you so much Karan, Mohan, Jenny and Imran. Delicious hot soups, individual fires, gorgeously done rooms, lunch spots..... Eagerly waiting for our next trip.

I can't stop raving about this place. Frankly, I was a bit apprehensive initially about staying here as I had gathered from the reviews of previous guests that this lodge catered mostly to non-Indian nationals. However, the moment we turned off the road and drove into the gate, all my apprehensions were put to rest with the wonderful welcome from... More

As our first experience of a wildlife lodge in India this place exceeded all expectations and felt more like a luxury African lodge . Its in a lovely quiet location alongside a river, well away from other tourists. The place is owned and run by Karan Modi who has a keen interest in conservation and wildlife. We had a wonderful...

During our long journey in India I could not help feeling home sick from time to time. The first minute we arrived at Flame of the Forest this feeling immediately disappeared. The warm welcome by the full staff, the beautiful location, the fantastic food that was enjoyed together with all other hotel guests and the owner, all contributed to this... More

Hi, we only had two nights at this wonderful, romantic and beautiful place. We were surprised about the beauty of these cottages, the comfort and the good maintenance of this little place. What a great positive and familiar place to be after the craziness of Mumbai where we live since more than one year. I can highly recommend this place... More

I should have gotten around to writing this review sooner, but here it is now for those of you considering a stay here. My husband and I stayed at the end of May for four nights. There was only one other couple staying at the lodge at the time which was perfect for us. We chose this time of year... More

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

Following a long days's travelling by air and car we arrived at the hotel in late afternoom. 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
