Taj Mahua Kothi A Taj Safari Bandhavgarh National Park

Mahua Kothi, A Taj Safari - Bandhavgarh National Park

5 Star Jungle Safari Resort in Bandhavgarh National Park

Mahua Kothi or homestead is named after the Mahua tree which is prized and revered in the region. Our jungle safari resort in Bandhavgarh National Park has 12 standalone luxury cottages blend into a 45 acre private forest on the periphery of the national park. The guest area overlooks a large grassland where monkeys and birds in vivid colours are a regular feature. The mud cottages or ‘Kutiyas’ are built in the local style of architecture. A bean shaped pool screened by a bamboo thicket and shaded by Mahua trees is perfect for cooling off at midday. The guest areas are housed in a large brick building with deep verandas overlooking a grassland ringed by a forest patch. The dining hall has a large fireplace to keep guests warm during chilly winter evenings. Guests delight in picking fresh vegetables and fruit from the lodge’s private organic gardens for a salad. A select menu of treatments offered by professional in-house masseurs is the perfect indulgence to top off a safari holiday.

Amazing little place
It’s the people that matter and not the place. Having said that, there’s nothing wrong with the place either! But the best part about Mahua Kothi was the amazing staff. Each one of them made you feel at home. The hospitality they offered was stupendous. Catering for the smallest requirements in a place, off the beaten track with limited supplies. The way they greeted you after every safari trip and how the entire team was there to see you off. Really touching.

Very exciting and a life time experience. Set up was very referencing and relaxing.
The set up of the hotel was very exciting and a life time experience. The room along with wash room and shower area was very unique and presented a blend of modern as well as archival. Very comfortable though. The room service was very prompt and exceeded expectations. The courteous behaviour of all staff was a great learning experience and speaks volume of the culture and discipline of the organisation. Very heartening. The food served after consultation with us was another unique service. The Taj Safari ride was an unique experience though we missed to see the tiger in the evening Safari due to wrong paring with another group. The other group was more interested to see the birds and wasted time on the same resulting in near miss watching tigers at couple of occasions. The morning Safari was exhilarating and we could see the tigress. A good coordination was seen with the naturalist. The send off and welcome was very warm and unique. The drop off and pick up was very well organised and the journey was very comfortable despite a long journey. There was some communication gap as the driver was at different station for the pick up. This requires little fine tuning too. Overall top class experience which will be cherished for a long time.
