first things first, the place is a lil in the interiors and abit far from the main Khatiya gate. the inroads haven't been constructed yet. My husband and I had gone for a weekend holiday. Apart from us, there was no other guest staying at the property. As far as the service is concerned, it was good, but not great. The food was very good and homely, but they would keep us waiting for every meal for 20-30mins (inspite of being informed in advance about our meal timings). also they were not very flexible, like if we would ask them for another desert they would gently refuse, and once wen we asked for a second helping of kadhi, we were told it was over.The milk i insisted upon, instead of tea, was half diluted. Thats not the kind of service you expect at a resort. People praise their breakfast baskets, but i did not find it to be special at all. it consisted of some sandwiches(which were OK) and alo paratha. on both the days.They offer you juice, tea and coffee along with that, but they forgot to pack it in our basket ( inspite of a 15 mins discussion the previous night over the breakfast menu). I didnt like asking them for anything bcoz half the times they would respond with a "yes, ofcourse" and the rest of times it would be a straight "no".
People also rave about the splash pool, but unless you are comfortable with insects, ants, lizards and dirt around you, you wouldnt be very comfortable using it.
The rooms arent numbered on the outside,and all look the same, so i would end up reaching other rooms, many a times.
Cleanliness is a bit of an issue too. the toilet seat had urine stains wen we checked in. also the bes had dirt wen we took off the bed cover.
All in all the food was the best thing. they can definitely do better.

Before mentioning anything about room or food I would like to thank Mr Krishnan the manager and Mr Pandey the service manager for their help during my hour of need. My son 2.5 year old kid fell sick in the middle of the night and I received all possible help from both of them. God bless them. Regarding food quality : I have nothing to complain. I had booked 3 rooms with air coolers not air conditioned. The rooms were not excellent but quite clean. Once again I would like to reiterate that the best thing in Eco village resort that you will notice is the energy and willingness to work attitude of the entire staff and the managers. The location is also good around 5-10 mins from the Khatia main gate

Kanha Village Eco Resort

Good location, as it's nice and quiet. A short drive to the park gate. But...

It may have been a nice place to stay 20 years ago when it was new, but that time has long passed. One gets the constant impression that they are about to go out of business at any time.

Food is served in an unheated shed, not a problem for much of the year, but having dinner in the cool/cold December air is not great fun. The food is good, but monotonous.

But by far the biggest problem is that the place is a dump. My room wasn't filthy but you could see it from there. Stained linen, dirty floors, unknown smudges on the walls. Over four nights I had housekeeping show up twice. Once was after I had returned from a morning game drive, then they wanted to clean my room--not during the five hours I was off site, nor during the three hours I was on a game drive in the afternoon, but rather during the few hours I was in the room.

The room came complete with the normal share of tropical critters: small non-biting flys, ants, and, one very large spider (about 2 inches in diameter) that crawled back into one of the many holes in the wall when the light was turned on.

The working staff are very nice. Management, however, clearly doesn't care--they have a "this place is going down" attitude.

The two positives, location and working staff, hardly make up for the condition (poor) and cleanliness (nonexistent) of the place.

With some attention to detail, a lot of repair and painting, some better training of staff, installation of wifi and tv, the place could really shine. But don't hold your breath. There are a couple resorts nearby that are clearly far better, I'd look to them the next time I came.

Myself and my wife had booked a room at Kanha Village Eco Resort for 3 nights.
The place is good with natural surroundings and good cottages. They also have a good swimming pool.
The staff is friendly and the food was good(specially the safari basket).
The staff helped us to plan almost all the trip.
It was a pleasure to meet Mr.Sanjeev and Mr.Navneet.

I would recommend this place for people who like to stay in natural surroundings and not in a hi-fi resort. Overall a perfect place to spend your Kanha safari stay for budget travelers like us.

Room Tip: We stayed in the air cooled room which was good in regards to the cost. Any room would be comfortab...

This place is a real gem and we are so pleased we found it. Right from inquiring about a room the service was second to none! Our booking was managed by sanjeev, who has impeccable English and is a naturlist with over 20 years experience in kanha np. He helped us to organize our 3 prebooked safaris and then made numerous phone calls to organize 2 more shared safaris once we had arrived. He came on our safaris with us and we were so grateful for his knowledge, making each safari truly special (as many of the park guides speak very little English). Navneet, the owner, is a wonderful photographer and took time out of his busy schedule to give us a wildlife photography tutorial which was greatly appreciated. Raju, one of the waiters, went out of his way to ensure we were very comfortable during our stay, as did all the staff at kanha! Krishna, the other manager spent hours booking a train ticket for us and lent us his laptop to backup our photos (he also has a very cute 2 year old son). The rooms were spacious and clean with a good hot shower! The swimming pool is also a massive bonus, just what you need to cool off. We were only supposed to stay fro 4 nights and stayed for 7 we loved it that much here. It was truly a 10 star experience here but without the price tag!

The resort is in the midst of buffer zone of Kanha Forest. We stayed in the resort for 2 days on 25th Jan 13 to 27th Jan 13. The place is tastefully built with all the amenities. The stay was very comfortable and the staff was most courteous. The food was superb. The place is like staying in a village. We shall never forget these moments of our stay in the resort. We shall again go there in March/April. Keep it up.

Room Tip: fantastic place to stay if you are a nature lover and would love to stay like staying in the forest.
