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

This is the older of the MPTDC properties in Mandu. There are rooms and tents. We stayed in a tent. 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

We booked this hotel for 2 nights through online portal. a medium size room on the first floor was with one changing room , bathroom and balcony. AC was not working. deep cleaning was required. staff is too much slow . Food was OK. it's flop show of MP tourism , needs lot of improvement in each area.

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

I admit I had no inkling of how Madhya Pradesh tourism department was with regard to upkeep, maintenance and service in its resorts. I was very pleased to find a large, clean resort with maintained garden, working swings and ample parking space. The restaurant had a hygienic glass enclosed kitchen so you could see the cooking process. Even though we... More

We stayed there during Jan 2014. Mandu is a historical city and is well maintained by Madhya Pradesh (MP) tourism. There are lot of attractions to explore. This hotel is a property of MP government tourism and is small but nice. We stayed in A/C tents. They were maintained in average condition but the view from tents was awesome as... More
