I stayed at Krishna with my family in Jan 2010 and had a great time. I was a bit apprehensive because this was my first visit to the jungles, but was pleasantly surprised by the facilities provided by Krishna. The entire resort has a great atmosphere keeping in mind the jungle theme. The rooms in thatched cottages were well appointed, lunch & dinner buffets had a good variety of veg & non veg dishes and most importantly the staff were extremely courteous and ever so helpful. They also arranged the morning safaris for us and provided packed breakfast with paranthas that were delicious. Tip - If you are visiting during winter months then please carry enough winter clothes - jackets, caps, scarves, gloves otherwise the ride in an open jeep at 5am will leave you freezing cold. In the evenings, they also lit a fire in the garden and showed us a nice video on Kanha tigers accompanied by tea & snacks. So a big thank you to Vini for making the booking process so smooth - I had called him from UK and he was very prompt in sending all our booking details & confirmations and to all staff at Krishna for a great stay in the jungles. If I have to be critical, then there is only one thing - a bit more attention to the cleanliness of bathrooms would be great. Would definitely come back if we decide to return to Kanha.

On a scale of 1 to 5, and 5 being the best I will rate the room condition, service, hotel staff and above all food quality and taste at 5. If I have to visit Kanha again I would 200% will stay at Krishna. On top of it they have nice swimming pool, good forest like look.

The staff seemed they could not do enough for you but the room was very tired e.g. windows did not close and pane of glass missing in bathroom so mosquitoes regular visitors. Jeep safaris in Kanha boring as unable to see through mass of Bamboo most of time

I stayed at the Krishna Jungle Resort with my daughter, over 3 days. Being May, it was well outside of the tourist season and we were almost the only guests. I would imagine that there is more interaction with other guests in-season, which would have been a nice plus.
The room was clean and well-appointed. My daughter was not happy about the bugs in the bathroom, but it is, after all, on the edge of the jungle.
The food was good and plentiful and I found the dining room staff to be very friendly and attentive.
The pool may be cleaner in-season; it was not appealing when we were there, despite the heat. The langur monkeys had taken over the pool area anyway!
The main reason for being out there, of course, was to visit Kanha. We had a terrific guide, Bapu. His English is rudimentary, but no matter, he was very serious in his search for wildlife, and over our 4 trips, I grew to really like him. And we saw LOTS of wildlife, including 3 tigers, one each on 3 of our 4 jungle trips. One was from a "tiger show", where elephants had tracked the location and we went in on elephant-back. The two others we saw from the jeep, including a tiger dragging his deer-kill. Then lots of gaur, sambar, spotted deer, barking deer, a sloth bear, barasingha, wild boar and birds and hawks.
I would absolutely return here.

Kanha National Park, part of the Central Indian Highlands, is wondrous Kipling country - an absolute must - see for all nature and wildlife enthusiasts. Its undulating landscape is covered by dense vegetation, hillocks and rolling meadows.While tigers form the peak of the biological ecosystem in Kanha, the reserve is home to 43 species of mammals and about 300 species of birds.

The Krishna Jungle Resort lies a short distance away from the main entrance of the park, and is a delightful and most family-friendly place to stay. Its comfortable and cozy twin bedded rooms and meals that have that 'home-cooked' touch to them will make your stay there well worth your while. Spend wintry evenings around a bonfire, soaking in all those little nuggets the resident manager and well - informed naturalist, Sanjeev Kulhalli, has to offer you. The pool is a clear blue and looks most inviting even on a winter morning!

Jungle rides are organized in open jeeps, beginning at 5.30 am in the morning and 2.30 pm in the afternoon. You may be woken up to a hot drink at 5 am, if you so desire. Packed breakfast is provided, while a hot, sumptuous lunch awaits you at the resort. December and January are the coldest months in Kanha, so remember to dress really warm for the rides. Night temperatures may dip to zero degrees Celsius at the peak of winter.

The exhilarating, well-guided jungle safaris, together with frequent tiger sightings, make Kanha an experience of a lifetime.
One little tip, however - there is little here for those urbanites seeking the luxuries of city life. Search another destination if TV, internet, jacuzzi and such-like are what you are looking for!

From start to finish we really enjoyed our stay, rooms were basic but very clean, great showers which were needed after a long drive in the forest. Staff extremely helpful, seemed to really care if your stay was what you had hoped for, so attentive, hot towels coming back from game drives, drinks brought to you wherever you were. Tea at 4.30 am to your room before drive and food so very fresh and tasty. We had our own guide from the start so very caring and knowledgeable. The manager and all of the staff were so very helpful. The game drives were amazing, saw so many animals including tiger, the drives themselves were so very beautiful, the meadows and lush forest as the sun come up were spectacular. It was all fantastic
