This review is very much delayed as we stayed in JM in Nov 2012. Cannot praise this property enough. We travelled with our two young children from Jabalpur. The hospitality here is of a very high standard. From the exceptional food, to the exceedingly comfortable living spaces, to the safari arrangements (hot tea at dawn and hot water bottles and...

We reached Jungle Mantra after a journey by road from Pachmarhi that took all day which is strange considering the distance looks like a comfortable 4 hour drive. The property itself is wonderfully laid it and the rooms comfortable - didn't notice that AC but then it was wintertime so didn't feel the need. A jungle lodge is typically not... More

Junglemantra is truly one of a kind, thanks to the personal touch and dedication of Rhea and Shalin. Being greeted by Shailin at 2.30am following a 4hr flight delay and 4hr car journey is just one example of the incredible hospitality at Junglemantra. It was also a delightful introduction to the chef’s culinary excellence, for which I’m sure all will... More

Amazing rooms! Wonderful hosts! Very friendly and efficient staff! Fantastic food! Pick up and drop offs well organised and very efficient. Wonderful area with great wildlife. Very highly recommended, but check with the lodge first about the situation in the national park as internal politics within the park system has made access and tiger sightings more difficult recently.

We spent 3 days in Junglemantra, and even we have been searching, there is nothing we could criticise. The lodge is just facing the national park, the huts are nice and of an excellent standard, surrounded by nature, close to a pond with a lot of birds, and the dishes were simply of very high quality (you will not be...

Superb lodge, wonderful staff and great hosts! We travelled to Junglemantra from Mumbai for 3 nights in mid December 2012. Shailin and Rhea have done a remarkable job with this place. The lodge overlooks the jungle and my favourite bit is the reception/lounge where we had our breakfast and lunch. The rooms are equally nice and are made largely from... More

Nice place with great hosts! Rhea and Shailin go out of their way to make you feel at home including adding the extra touch for special occasions. Their knowledge of the park only enhances the experience. The property is beautiful with comfortable rooms and absolutely awesome food!
