“Peaceful and Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

We stayed for four nights in this great resort. It was very comfortable, food was fantastic and the owner Gagan takes an interest in all his guests and makes sure everything is right. We mentioned we were cold and in minutes a portable room heater was brought to our door. All the tasty Indian cooking was explained to us as it was presented and the best experience was a private cooking demonstration on our last day of stay. Gagan is a walking book of knowledge about the birds, animals, mythology and village life of the local area. He brought in local tribal dancers and drummers one evening, as we sat around the bonfire, and also had a local artist showing us how he paints his Gond pictures. We highly recommend Tigergarh, thanks for a fantastic stay.

We visited this property on 10 jan, 2014 and stayed till 12 jan. This is my first post at tripadvisor and it has given me every reason to write this feed back for tigergarh.

-Starting pick up from umaria station to check-out every thing was perfect.
-Once we were in our room again it was pleasure to see the amenities and the kind of fabrics and furnishing they have used to decorate the room.
- room + bathroom size, cleanliness, hot water every thing right in place.
- when it comes to food.it was just awesome...Homely food with best taste

Thanks to Gagan and his team. They were fabulous !Service n staff warmth was apparent and it added a lovely feel to the stay there.
I must compliment their service and a personal touch with their guest.
Gagan never says NO, to anything. we wished to have food outside in sun, village walk, quick crash course in photography, or walk till pond (twice), he said yes for every thing :).

I would like to visit tigergarh again .. A wonderful time spent.

Room Tip: 1. Gagan, personal touch. 2. Best home cooked food.

This was my first visit to the wild and tigergarh made it an experience of a lifetime. There are many things which you will find great in tigergarh but what spoils you is the endeavour of the people here to make you feel special. They are not trained to flash a contrived smile... Which i got tired of in numerous starred business hotels. Tigergarh has a soul. The owner Gagan is a naturalist who has built this facility to make friends and i do beleive he has fulfilled his dream. He can take you for wild off roading journeys, make safari tickets possible when you had no bookings and help you fall in love with nature. Experience it as these places are rare... I will go back for sure. Now at a tactical level... It has real nice rooms.. All facilities you would need for a comfortable stay and some great view of the jungle on both sides.
Visited during christmas of 2013 and my daughter still remembers dotz! If yoy are at bandhavgarh.... You need to experience Tigergarh.

Room Tip: Let gagan do it for you. He is the best

TigerGarh is the best resort as per my assessment. Costly, yes. But you will get best comfort. The owner Gagan Gahlot arranged for SAFARI and my travel from UMARIA rail station to Tigergarh also. Food was rich, but excellent in taste. Location of Tigergarh is such that you will not get any DUST from the roads as it is far away from roads and scenery also is beautiful around. You feel like you are amidst a forest. Rooms are clean, bathroom is well equipped and ultramodern, but still inside and outside the cottage you feel like you are in a forest village hut. All in all, nice.

I selected this place for our stay in Bandhavgarh firstly, due to the fact that the owner himself manages the resort and secondly, based on the reviews on Tripadvisor; and it turned out to be a great decision! And my review is basically going to reiterate all the other ones on this forum.

Location: The resort is located pretty close to the safari gates. The ambiance of the resort also gives a nice jungle feeling.

Rooms: Nice, comfortable and clean! Do not expect a lot of luxury but then it is a Jungle holiday to begin with.

Food: Awesome! Delicious, home-cooked food!

Service: Again Awesome! The staff is very well trained! I think the owner, Gagan, being there himself makes a big difference. The staff was always pleasant and very helpful ( we had a small baby with us).

The owner: I think Gagan is the key to the success of this place...he guided us very well on the phone, great company over drinks and dinner, nice stories of the Jungle..and most importantly, excellent management of the resort.

Overall: Fully satisfied with our Bandhavgarh trip and if I happen to be there again, I will stay in Tigergarh again for sure. Highly recommended.

Note: About the rooms, or any issues or any guidance...Just leave it to Gagan..he takes great care of you!

Big Big Big thank you to Gagan, Simrat and Anika...let me not miss out Dotz for their amazing company and warmth at Tiger Garh. Rest everything was at its best! Service, food, safari, accommodation in the cottages, night chase in the gypsy to spot the tiger....it couldn't be better. The highlight of the entire stay was the camp fire arranged by Tiger Garh folks followed by absolutely delicious dinner. Simrat (Gagan's wife) specially prepared a dessert for us, which was absolutely a delightful gesture. It was a trip that my husband planned for me and you guys made it so special and memorable! Thanks a lot and tell the tigers...we are coming back to Bandhavgarh and to Tiger Garh.

If it's Bandhavgarh...it has to be experienced with Tiger Garh!
