A very long drive to get here, but quickly forgotten with such a warm welcome from the hotel team. Lovely room on stilts with views through the trees, well equipped nice bathroom with bath and separate shower. Dinner was served after a nature slide show by one of the naturalists. Food was from the hotel gardens and was delicious. We...

2 night stay, November 2016. Beautiful rooms all well separated from each other with good outside seating areas. Aim of the visit was to see tiger but unfortunately on this occasion we didn't manage to see one .... good excuse to return! I'm particularly useless with names but our naturalist from the hotel was excellent. Softly spoken, articulate and intelligent...

Kings Lodge in Bandhavgarh, the heart of Tiger country, is an amazing place. It's not just a stay, it's an entire experience in itself. Reaching the place after a long journey from Delhi (our train was delayed by 6 hours), we were greeted by wet towels and nimbu paani, followed by an amazing lunch. Then, we went off on a...

Incredible experience, hard to go wrong. Some tips: Bring old clothes and a dust mask or scarf for the safaris, they can be very dusty. It can also get very cold in Dec, Jan, so bring a warm coat and hat & gloves for the morning safaris.

The huts are spacious and well furnished. The bathroom is quite spacious with all amenities and the balcony is a perfect place to sit idle with a glass of...

Beautiful place to live in with good staff and good food, only thing was there was no network in the hotel which was actually an advantage as no disturbance and just peace, wi-fi is available in common areas which is a great advantage. All in all a lovely stay with family.

We stayed here two nights and found the accommodations comfortable and clean. The staff were very good, efficient and friendly. Food was very good but packed breakfasts could be improved upon. Our visit here was in December and it was quite cold early mornings and evenings so blankets and hot water bottles were provided for morning safaris.

Had three nights at Kings with a friend in the middle of our backpacking trip, and really happy we chose this place for our little luxurious December break. From the ever pleasing staff to the amazing food, we couldn't complain about a thing. The warm water bottles and our super knowledgeable naturalist Raju, made the stay even better. Hope to...

We decided to stay at Bandhavgarh after a week in the Golden Triangle in order to see a little more of the country and experience the overnight sleeper journey. This was a great decision. From the moment we arrived at Kings Lodge we were extremely well looked after and had our most comfortable stay in India by far. I hadn't...
