We went for a photography trip to Bandhavgarh so we were limited to late evenings and mid afternoons but the hotel's friendly staff helped rejuvenate us everytime. From tea at 3.30AM to lemonade at 11am to lunch and then again evening snacks at 7pm, the staff took care to relax us. The rooms (actually cottages) are big and well maintained.... More

Arrived about 8pm after a long day travelling by air and car. Very friendly greeting and made very welcome with cool drink. Dinner was quickly served in a large dining room, decorated in traditional style, around two large tables, and we were offered an excellent 3 course meal. Accomodation was along a lamp lit pathway to individual cottages on stilts.... More

If you enjoy luxury and a memorable wildlife experience, this is the place. This was my first safari trip to Bandhavgarh, India. Gane and Marshall did a great job in organising what was a complex two centre safari package, with the emphasis on wildlife photography. Arriving at the lodge in the late afternoon my immediate response was – fab –... More

I recently spent 3 weeks at Kings Lodge and I can highly recommend it as base from which to do tiger safaris into the beautiful Bandhavgarh National Park. My expert guide Sunny was fantastic and tells me that we saw 12 different individual tigers during this time, a total of 53 times! The air-conditioned (vital in my view if you... More

We enjoyed our stay here - and we did see tigers! The bungalows are very comfortable and cool - we liked the use of wood in the bedrooms - it all looks quite natural. The staff are very welcoming and mealtimes are fun, everyone eating around a huge table in the dining room so there are plenty of opportunities to... More

Wifi was available from the reception area mainly. Our room (12) was up on stilts in among the bamboo and was very light, clean with a lovely... More

During Jan 2015, I had stayed at this property for 3 nights. All rooms are very well placed, luxuriously spacious, comfortable and clean. The property is beautiful and one can get the feel of the forest stay without compromising on the comforts. Staff is extremely polite and helpful. The naturists are very knowledge and pro at their job. Specific mention... More

This was our third National Park we visited whilst in India and it didn't disappoint. The lodge itself is beautiful, we stayed in cottage 9 and we loved it. All of the waiting staff were lovely and waiting with hot towels and drinks when you got back from safari. The food here was also some of the best we had... More

This was our first stay in this hotel and our first time in Bandhavgarh. We stayed here for 4 days in January 2015 after 4 days in Panna. We hired a car from the Pugdundee hotel in panna. The drive was nice and when we arrived we got a warm welcome by Saket. The hotel layout is very nice and... More
