Mahua Kothi, A Taj Safari - Bandhavgarh National Park

Mahua Kothi or homestead is named after the Mahua tree which is prized and revered in the region. 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.

A beautiful experience in the forest and a perfect holiday to recharge oneself.
This was our second stay at Mahua Kothi. Its good to see that the property and service is excellent despite the effects of COVID-19. One feels with the forest, it is extremely relaxing and the food is excellent. Some improvements: 1. It would have been great to have the pool but due to Covid protocols it had to stay shut. 2. The wine list must be improved along with a list of cocktails. 3. Wi-fi was horrible. 4. Add heating in the bathrooms. In winter months it can get uncomfortable. Overall, we had a fantastic stay.
