The property is made up of a pool area, office/library building, a main lodge and then 20 or so mud-brick luxury cabanas spread out over the property.

I just got back from Mahua Kothi and had a really wonderful experience. Everyone was incredibly helpful and the hospitality was unbelievable. I traveled alone and was a little nervous at first but Taj safaris made the experience completely comfortable. They arranged a driver (Mr. Jay) who picked me up from the airport at Jabalpur in a very comfortable car... More

Beautiful, luxurious resort int he middle of the jungle. Excellent accomodation called the kutiyas or mud huts. Amazing hospitality with a personal butler who looks after your every need. Get woken up at 4.45am with coffee and biscuits, start your morning safari at 5.30am, breakfast in the jungle at 7.30/8am, another cooked breakfast when you get back to the lodge... More

In short, we can't wait to return. The kutiya was perfect in every way, just right for the two of us. Clean, comfortable, cool and luxurious in and out. The lodge dining was excellent, but we also had a few meals in our room and our own private courtyard. Ramayan was awesome, we arrived feeling a bit under the weather... More

Taj - Mahua Kothi is one of the most exotic resorts I've visited of late. Tucked neatly in the BandhavGarh jungle the sprawling property is frequented by wild animals like deer and wild boar. The independent cottages are exceptionally designed and tastefully furnished. The mud walls give the exact feeling of staying in a village. Staffs are very courteous and... More

Mahua Kothi is a stunning Taj/&Beyond property worthy of high praise. The rooms are large and comfortable with a patio just outside with table and chairs and lounging area. Unfortunately it was so hot during our stay we did not take advantage of it. The food is delicious and plentiful beginning with pre-breakfast before leaving for safari, breakfast while on... More

We stayed at the Mahua Kothi for 3 nights as part of a week of wildlife viewing in Madya Pradesh. It scores top marks without question. Everyone at the lodge was friendly and helpful and they could not have done more to help us enjoy our stay. We were allocated a naturalist who led our trips into Bandhavgarh and really... More
