We stayed at Malwa Retreat for 2 nights. It is one of the two options to stay at in Mandu, the other being Malwa Resort. We did not get a place at the Resort, so took this up. The room definitely exceeded expectations. It was clean, the bathroom was clean too, and overall I think that if one needs to... More

Mandu is a very remote village. Compared to other very few hotels there, Malwa Retreat is a better option in terms of price, location and safety. The hotel has an in-house restaurant and serves decent food in a clean environment. It is within walking distance to the Village group of monuments. The hotel is surrounded by garden and mountains and... More

Malwa retreat has all kind of accommodation available from plush rooms for family to dormitory beds for solo budget travellers. They have cottages as well overlooking a valley. They have got a decent restaurant and good food. The royal enclave complex is walkable from there and so is city centre. Buses which go in to Mandu passes from its gate... More

This is the budget version of the MP tourism development corporations accommodation. It is right at the entrance of Mandu and so a 15 min walk away from the main market. The place is good for a relaxing stay and the staff is good too. The manager there can help you with local transportation etc

All the three tents have a magnificent valley view and you can see the early sunrise which is a spectacle to behold. It has a limite item choice restaurant on the roadside, but the food, particularly aloo parathas were mouth... More

On an impromptu trip to the heart of India, catalyzed by Air India’s flash sale of discounted tickets, our next destination after Indore happened to be Mandu. We planned to spend two nights at Mandu and booked one double AC room (tariff : Rs.2290/- + taxes including breakfast for two) at Malwa Retreat on MP Tourism’s website. We had reached... More

Hotel booking was easy through MP tourism website though they charged entire 'base rate' (without tax) online in advance. Location is on the main road of Mandu and is well known to locals...can't miss it. Hotel offers free car parking and has ample place. They also offer bicycle on rent to roam around Mandu. Well, being January 2015, we stayed... More

Good location. Very nice tents located right at the edge of valley, though the lighting was very dim. We had initially booked regular rooms but they were in a very bad state. Could not even stand there for a minute. When we pointed out that the floor was dirty, house keeping staff said that we have just cleaned it. Paint... More
