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...

We were there in late November and the weather was quite chilly of a night and morning. The game drives in the morning we were given a blanket and a hot water bottle and that was fantastic. The guides and drivers did their best to find game especially tigers and to keep you interested in the search. We unfortunately didn't...

We spent time at both Kings Lodge & Earth Lodge in Nov this year. Fantastic people, Fantastic accommodation, and we saw Tigers in the wild! Anurag was a great guide at Kings Lodge, and was very knowledgeable and certainly knew his stuff! He made our holiday and really looked after us. We enjoyed our stay at both lodges, and would...

We were into days 17-19 of our tour of India when we arrived at Kings Lodge. After a long drive, the welcome of warm towels and lime water was a wonderful sight. Kings Lodge is a lovely property. The individual cabins are elevated off the valley floor so that you have a nice view from your patio. The beds are...

A lovely location with rooms on stilts in the trees. Excellent friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Lovely food. Naturalist Shibajee Mitra in addition to accompanying us on game drives also took us on an afternoon walk in the forest and village which was really enjoyable. Even better we saw two tigers.

My husband and I stayed at Kings lodge for 2 nights while travelling around India. The warm welcome we received as well as the attentiveness of the staff was outstanding. The food was ok, much better in the evenings than during the day. None the less there was plenty of it. The lodges are very well appointed and comfortable. We...

It’s just weeks before I have returned from Bandhavgarh, still the warmth, hospitality and fond memories are making me nostalgic. We went on the first day of the season and we were the only guest . But thanks to the wonderful administrative skill of Mr. Bali , each and every staff made us feel important and extended their warm welcome....

I stayed here with family once and returned with friends the next time. Well laid out property, aptly named the King's Lodge. A warm welcome at the reception, we were briefed about the place. The cottages, at a good distance from each other are resting on stilts. A cute balcony from where you enter the room. Neat and spacious, big...

For me, it's all about the people of the place. I was here for a really quick trip and that too on the last day of the park being opened before monsoon. Gudda, the in-house naturalist waited for me outside the gate for over an hour in the heat and whisked me away ( even though we were very late)...
