“One of the best resorts in bandhavgarh ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

I would like to keep it short and simple..good location, beautifully constructed, surrounded by nature. All the facilities have been taken care of. The staff is very good and helpful. Rishi bhatt made sure we had a great time. The thing I loved the most was the food. Awesome food!. Stay was very comfortable, big rooms, very clean. Overall..a great place which I will definitely chose to stay at on my next visit and also recommend others the same!

We reached Katni station early morning at 5,30am, and to our pleasant surprise Rishi Bhatt (the owner) had already sent the vehicles to the station to take us to the resort. After a overnight train journey and a 2 hour road drive, our body was longing for a comfortable sleep. The bedrooms at Aranyak did not dissapoint us.
The rooms were very spacious with an equally spacious bathroom. For those who wish to shower under the open sky, the bathrooms have an extended area without a roof atop. That turned out to be a fantastic experience every evening we returned back from our jungle safari.
The staff was very courteous and co-operative. They made it a point to give us a wake up call for our jeep safari, even at 4.45 a.m. And by the time we freshened up, tea/coffee would be ready and waiting for us near the camp-fire area. The food was excellent with a nice variation of cuisine to suit the palette of both vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians.
The resort is newly built, situated just 5 min drive from the Tala zone, the main zone of Bandhavgarh National park.It is spread over a large area and has a good number of trees. Since these trees were recently planted, the green cover isn't as thick as one would expect. However, in a matter of few years, this resort would definitely turn lush green and I feel that will make it all the more a wonderful place to stay at. Though, I was on a photography trip with an "all male" group. I wouldn't hesitate to return back with my family for a nice break in the wild.
Full marks to Rishi Bhatt and his entire staff. Looking forward to go back soon.

All my anxiety, uncertainty and vagueness of my stay in Bandhavgarh was relieved totally when I entered Aranyak Resort. This gives an excellent forest experience in the resort itself.
The rooms are very spacious,and gives the experience of British Bungalows with a dressing room and opening-close roof bathrooms which was unique for this place which i had never seen anywhere till today.The Dinning hall and Kitchen were so well decorated which gives an Ethnic look.The food was highly tempting,Staff were very friendly, committed to the service,being supervised by Rishi Bhat - The Owner Himself. The resort itself is a good Birding place and a heaven for photographers.We wanted to go for a safary into the forest which was arranged flawlessly at the very last moment, which turned out to be the best of our 7 Safaris.I highly recommend this place to anybody.

Room Tip: Rooms at the corner are quieter and nearer to the dining hall.

This was one of best places that i have stayed across india . It is very important that after 2-3 hours safari in bad roads inside the jungle,
you get good food,
good sleep (good room) and
also people serving with smile always .

This place had all of them. Infact, we had to book one safari at the last moment and resort folks helped us to get this and it turned out to be the best safari. Place as such is nice and add on is "open bathroom" with is so fascinating. It is truly value for money and worth the stay. I would definitely stay there more than 4 days , if time permits.

Apart from all aesthetic part of it , owner/staff has good knowledge about the surroundings. We could even spot 2 Mottled Wood Owl based on those input.

Truly amazed by the hospitality of the staff and the quality of rooms. The rooms and specially bathrooms are very tastefully done. The open air bath is a nice concept. Food deserves a special mention (veg). The teams hospitality can match and even better a few 5 star properties.

A must stay.

Room Tip: ask for a room with the color of your choice & must try the veg kofta and aloo paranthas.
