I stayed with my wife and 5 year old son. We loved the personal attention that the staff provides without intruding into the privacy. They do not have a menu and you can customise your meals. One night they organised dinner on terrace. A lovely experience to have dinner under the sky which is full of stars.

Apart from jungle safari they organised nature walk, visit to temple for us. We loved the walk with the naturalist learning about various bird sounds and watching sunset from a small hill.

Great place to unwind and spend some days in quiet surroundings. They have cottages which helps in maintaining privacy.

The kothi is quite close to the entrance to the national park. It matters as one has to get up early to visit the park. There is no TV in the room and you will not feel the need for one, though they have one in the library.

We stayed @ Mahua Kothi for 3 nights and it was a lovely experience!!! Have done a lot of African safaris but this was our 1st Indian safari...and we were very pleasantly surprised! Although one can say that would be expected of a Taj property ...quite true ... the entire staff was very attentive and pleasant,..eager to help in making our stay a memorable one!
From Manager to room butlers (Ramaayan )including the head chef everyone was very good ! Enjoyed the special evenings in different venues and all the safari's (we did 5) a very thoughtful thing in the morning was hot water bottle and blanket at 5.45am in the biting cold was very very welcome....with lovely breakfast served later around 9.
The chef would be around all day to make sure we got food of our choice and taste.
The cottages were very good our laundry came back clean & crisp room service was excellent !! Highly recommend it...and do 3 days if possible.

I was smiling from ear to ear when I arrived at Mahua Kothi. The lodge is absolutely beautiful. Everything is decorated in the theme of a safari or being in the wilderness. Staff greeted me warmly and were always so attentive to any need I had. They spoke excellent English which is hard to find surprisingly in certain hotels. THE FOOD IS OUTSTANDING! They will even fill special dietary requests. They make pasta just as good as jn italy - i kid you not. They let me extend my chrck out time til late in the evening when i departed - which was a pleasant surprise. Although trying to find your hut may be confusing, they are there to guide you - especially at night. It's so nice to sit outside of your lodge and listen to the birds. They can take you on nature walks to watch the sunsets. And the safaris were wonderful. They did everything they could to make sure I saw tigers which I did. My first night was scarey adjusting to the noises of the night, but you can call them and they will come. But the best part was the outstanding service. But then again there is the amazing food and gorgeous decorum...you can't go wrong staying here.

Room Tip: They are all gorgeous

Mahua Kothi by Taj Hotels is a superb Safari Lodge in Madhya Pradesh, India.
The resort has just 12 cottages and the theme is not "Exotic" but understated, romantic and laced with a perfect crew who take hospitality as a passion.
All tiny details are cared for and the food is superb.Focus is on local cuisine but it is really elaborate, versatile and presented on different locations within the resort.
They also take care of the Jungle Safaris to the tiger reserve.
It is a great holiday place for couples and groups alike..!
Superb Spa treatments even in a 12 cottage resort.
What more can one dream of???

Mahua Kothis lodge is superb, the cuisine is delicious, and the service levels are very high. Our naturalist, Allwyn, was outstanding in his knowledge of tigers and other mammals as well as birds! Devika Surie from Taj Safaris and And Beyond India helped us to set up all the details of this perfect trip. What a fabulous experience and we highly recommend it.
