It was a home away from for us !From the warm welcome to the room- our kids and we enjoyed it all. The food was freshly cooked and well prepared. We would go back again in a heartbeat . The safari tickets were difficult to get last minute but the management helped us out. While we did not see the... More

This was a fantastic experience, the resort was practically in the jungle and had its own watering hole for animals, in fact we sighted jackals at the watering hole while sitting on the lounge chairs at the raised sit out overlooking the watering hole. The owners especially Uncle Rams were truly hospitable and added a personal touch, for the 3... More

Whilst completing a project to sort and catalogue nearly a 1,000 books for the local Tala School, I was fortunate to be housed at Junglemantra. Expecting basic shared bed and board accommodation, it was a delightful surprise to be offered a guest room at less than cost by my hosts Rhea and Shailin Ramji. The rooms are individually constructed authentic... More

A totally world-class eco-lodge. We stayed there in February 2016. Every aspect of our stay was delightfully perfect. The rooms and public areas are so beautifully designed, and exquisitely furnished. The food and service were both outstanding. Rhea and Shailin were away in Delhi, so we were hosted by Shailin's father. We were charmed and enchanted by his old-world courtesy.... More

Probably the best place to stay if you want to be close to nature. Amazing staff. Really good food. Unique experience. The location is also part of the charm. Will visit the place again. Saw two tigers in a safari.

We travelled to Jungle Mantra during New year’s week 2015. I would highly recommend staying here. Rhea and Shalin and Uncle made us feel relaxed and at home as soon as we arrived. We had logistical problems as Spice Jet had cancelled our flight to Jabalpur, but luckily Rhea guided us as to the next appropriate airport to fly into... More

I learnt of Junglemantra through Tripadvisor while planning a visit to Bandhavgarh with friends. Going by the reviews and the facilities which suited us mailed them and received a prompt response. After going back and forth clarifying my queries we finalised for a 3 night 4 day trip. And were we glad we chose to stay at Junglemantra. Run by... More

Shaelin and his staff offered fantastic hospitality, from start to finish, arrival to departure, including the drive to and from the train station; I don’t think we could have done any better elsewhere. He and his father, Ramji, actively hosted us at meals and downtime, were very open in their discussions. They are well traveled and experienced, and are great... More

Stayed at Junglemantra for three nights, and would qualify this to be a real forest experience. Shailin was excellent in guiding us and providing us the perfect jungle experience. The cottages are comfortable, yet give you the feel of being in a rudimentary setting. In the nights, the sounds and sense of the surrounding is like you were in the... More
