We, a family of four with two adults and two teenagers, recently stayed at Muba at the end of a three week visit to India. According to our limited experience of Indian hotels, Muba is very good; clean, comfortable, functional and welcoming although it is not particularly interesting nor beautiful (and we stayed in some extremely interesting and stunningly beautiful hotels in India). We were extremely well taken care of by the manager, who we would love to have cloned and put in our own hotels in Tanzania. She was an absolute delight and more than made up for the fact that her staff could not speak any English and were a bit IPL fixated. If you were to compare Muba to a lodge in a national park in East or Southern Africa you might not be ecstatic but then you would not find something in a similarly price bracket in Africa. A minor criticism of the hotel is that the food was a disappointment, wholesome and edible but extremely repetitive, unimaginative and not particularly tasty. Given that Muba is in India, for us it was completely adequate and a fine place to end our India experience. Kanha is beautiful, if crowded (we still preferred it to Bandhavgarh), the roads to and from the park are a national embarrassment, cellphone service is a problem and electrical power fluctuated wildly but these are not things that Muba can control. It was wonderful to see that India still has some wildlife and you can find unlittered countryside, some happy villagers (of the 800 million people trying to live on less than $1 per day) and even less polluted skies (we actually saw stars at night for the first time in three weeks).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The lodge located on the edge of Kanha National Park provides an ideal setting for guest to experience central Indian wildlife and hospitality. Spread over 45 acres, the property houses an elevated machan for wildlife viewing, large grasslands, and a beautiful lake with a suspended deck, an ideal location to spend evenings as one can simply relax while trying to capture the perfect shades of the setting sun. It is a great weekend destination for the nearby cities of Mumbai, Pune, Raipur, Nagpur and Jabalpur. ... more less
