Beautiful place. Beautiful location. And most importantly, it is run by the most beautiful bunch of people/staff who will make your stay A Memorable one, for sure! It's like a Home away from Home-experience for us. Clean room, immense spacious bathrooms, good power backup, secured place, and above all the most yummilicious food that will win your heart.

You can only tour the park in the mornings and afternoon so you have plenty of time at your lodging. The staff was crazy nice and the food was good. The place was gorgeous and offered a nice library. We took issue with the park no longer letting you choose your own guide but we were very happy with Junglemantra.

Everything about our stay was fantastic. Shailin, Rhea and their family and staff offer the warmest possible welcome and looked after our every need for the five nights of our stay. We wanted to relax as well as go on game drives, and Rhea had helped us pre-book these drives months in advance, one per day which worked really well... More

My partner and I stayed 3 nights at jungle mantra and we almost didn't leave. Shailin and Rhea have created a delightful lodge next to the jungle where you can feel at home in between your safaris. The rooms are spacious and decorated beautifully, and ours even had rocking chairs for us both! They are very accommodating for various people's... More

The grounds are beautiful, the accommodation is very good and the service is discrete and attentive. Rhea and Shailin run the lodge with a strong personal touch. They understand the park logistics well, always gave thoughtful advice and did their best to accommodate our changing demands for Safaris. Photigraphy tips from Shailin were an added bonus. The package is a... More

Its very kind of you to be so complimentary even though we would have wished your safaris to have gone more smoothly. We cannot apologize enough on behalf of the forest department and hope you will give Bandhavgarh a second chance in the future. We will keep you updated with details of tiger news.

The service and care that we experienced were exceptional. Shalin and Rhea are terrific hosts - we found them to be knowledgeable about the jungle and its occupants. Shalin is a superb, thoughtful and considerate guide. We will never forget the thrill of seeing tigers, but also enjoyed sightings of India's birds, other animals and plant-life. The landscape we drove... More
