Visited Kanha end of February with wife and cousins' family. Had a wonderful trip (barring the lack of tiger sighting) over the 3 days. Chandan is brilliantly located, just a 2 mins walk from the Kisli gate. The accommodation is very basic (with air-conditioning) and hence is not one for those looking out for luxury (most importantly the bathrooms were... More

Excellent location - this is one of the nearest resort from the Kisli gate. Resort offers a calm and serene backdrop for the Jungle in many ways. The owner (Dinesh) gave us a warm welcome at 4:00 AM also helped us to hire gypsies etc. He was too generous to adjust timings on schedule which you don't find too often.... More

The MP tour revolved around Kanha and I was naturally apprehensive about the accommodation and the safari practicalities. But, Dinesh dispelled all such doubts through his warm and... More

For the price you're paying, this motel is not worth it. I haven't been in any other motels in the area but if this is the best one in the area, Kanha has terrible hotels for the price. The owner pressured us to stay an additional night, which was annoying. His brother was nicer though. The wifi only works outside... More

With a right fare and excellent accomodation, Motel chandan is the only place where one should stay. Mr. Dinesh @ motel chandan surely looks forward for your comfort. Very close to the Khatia gate and mindblowing acco at a very reasonable rate. The staff is humble and caring, and really considers ones demands. Thanks Mr. Dinesh for your hospitality.
