Kings Lodge was everything we had expected, agree with a number of reviewers having spent time at Lodges in Kenya this was comparable. As always more enjoyable as we managed to see a Tiger in Bandhavgarh. That is mainly thanks to Gubba our guide and the Elephant Mahoot who managed to show us where the tiger was, great photo opportunity.... More

As the name says you will feel like a king in the resort. The staffs, service, food, rooms,... are too good in a jungle. Their pool is well maintained. if they have wifi in all the rooms it would be great. they have a spa but it was closed when we were there.

Kings Lodge happens to be a top notch Luxury jungle Lodge that reminded us of African lodges we visited in Kenya. The wooden character, service, the Rooms, meals, safaris, naturalists (Aman) all added to give us a a memorable experience.... More

Me and my best friend stayed two nights at Kings Lodge to visit Bandhavgarh National Park. We have the privilege to travel a lot and we have to say we never experienced such a familiar hospitality. We stayed in the beginning of June just before the park gets closed during monsoon months. The advantage of a stay in this very... More

We had taken 2 cottages when we visited in May 2014 in the scorching heat. Good property , well equipped rooms and it was a majestic overall experience with some great tiger sightings during our stay for 4 days.

Kings Lodge is a great place to stay if you are visiting Bandhavgarh and want to explore the park for several days or weeks. Nice and comfortable rooms, good food, friendly staff and knowledgeable guides and drivers. The lodge is also very close to the park and some of the stunning wildlife that can be found in and around Bandhavgarh.

A cold napkin and a colder glass of nimbu-pani accompanies a warm smile to counter the sweltering summer heat of central India as you enter the lobby of King's Lodge; at that moment you know that this resort has its heart in the right place. This is a huge property, with cottages that are well spread out to give you... More
