Treehouse Hideaway

Lovely stay

Sian Mair Moore- 22/02/20

“Had a great time at the lodge. The rooms were lovely and qwerky, being up a tree. The staff were a delight and did absolutely everything they could to make our stay memorable. The food was always excellent as were the picnics when out on safari. Would definitely recommend as a special place to stay. The naturalist we had for our safaris, Karan, was excellent and had a good knowledge of all the wildlife in the Reserve.”

Absolutely awesome!

Sramana Mitra- 15/01/20

“If you want to do a Tiger Safari in India, this may be your best option. We stayed in three of the five tree houses inside the forest. Karan and Chaubeji took us around. Yes, we saw several tigers. It's a wonderful place that takes you to a different mental state. In the end, we got really attached to the staff and their warm hospitality. It was very hard to leave”

Fantastic stay, all the staff are so friendly

Peter Rance – 28/03/16

Fantastic stay, all the staff are so friendly and professional and the guides and naturalists really know what they are talking about. They made a great difference. Accommodation and food excellent too, especially in the evening meal in the trees by candlelight!

"Excellent lodge!"

Stayed February 2016, travelled as a couple

We stayed for 3 nights at Tree House Hideaway, the first of a safari holiday in three different national parks. We purposely selected tree house, as it is a small camp, so we could expect individual attention. As indeed, this was the case. The tree house were beautiful, as most reviewers mentioned, but the cossetting we received from the staff was extra special. The food was lovely (the best of our 3 safari camps) and the appetizers before the main meal exceptional. Wild life documentaries, or, on one of the evenings, a special cultural evening, where the local villagers danced and sang, were very enjoyable, But the main reason most people go on safari in central India , is tigers. Uttam (skilfull, but not too communicative and our driver/naturalist, managed to find one on our very last drive. Seeing a tiger very close up is an unbelievable and unforgettable experience. We also spotted many birds, deer, wild pig and so on. Ashish and Karan were very attentive and helpful, sorting out a problem we had with our driver. Full marks here. There are many safari lodges in this area. But this one stands out for being small, with excellent staff. Highly recommended.

"Blissful!"

David B Dorking, United Kingdom Stayed February 2016, travelled as a couple

Our tree house was wonderful - tucked away along a private path. It had every amenity possible, with an extremely comfortable bed and well-equipped bathroom. copious amounts of very hot water (how do they do it?!) and its own gorgeous balcony. All the staff were charming, helpful and extremely smart. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and the place ran like clockwork. Oh, and even the food was perfect! Ashish Tirkey, the manager, was lovely and an extremely good guide. Our long term dream of seeing tigers was realised on FIVE occasions, when our guides managed to find us these elusive, magnificent beasts close at hand. The whole experience was beyond words.

Kings Lodge

Wonderful resort for Tiger Safaris

A perfect experience

Mr. Kannan Iyer-29/02/20

“My wife and I stayed for five nights, inclusive of seven safaris, in the last week of February 2020. This review is late in coming because of the corona virus disruption. Thinking about our stay at King's Lodge weeks ago makes me feel heady with happiness even today. Yes, the Bandhavgarh forest was incredibly beautiful, the tiger sightings were great but equally wonderful was the King's Lodge. A beautiful green campus with pleasant comfortable good-sized cottages, maintained with meticulous care several times a day. The service of the cleaning staff was just incredible. The food and its service was marvellous, the atmosphere every evening around the bonfire by the bar was such fun.. the hospitality of Amit, Omkar and the staff was very caring. Every visitor was sent off to and received from each safari trip with so much warmth. Last but not the least, I would like to mention our appreciation of our spirited and knowledgeable naturalist Anish through whom the forest came alive to us. All in all, it was an experience that couldn't be bettered. Thank you King's Lodge. Thank you Bandhavgarh.”

“Kings Lodge is a beautiful place to stay, and the staff makes it an amazing experience. The kitchen staff was extremely kind and helpful in accommodating my specific food intolerances, and the food was always fabulous. Our cottage was always extremely well kept and the staff went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable and welcoming. Special thanks to Mohan, whose competence, expertise, and personality made our safari experiences exceptional.”

“Great setting amongst bamboo”

BarbKale Sydney, Australia Reviewed March 2015

We really enjoyed this lodge, our room was large and comfortable and the deck with a view all round of bamboo and trees. Particularly we enjoyed the talks the naturalists gave, the library and the way we were looked after going for the early morning drives, the blankets and hotwater bottle and the breakfast in the Park. Our only downside was we never saw a tiger so we were unlucky. Our guide did his best.

“Refreshing and Comfortable”

espere22 Barrington, Illinois Reviewed 18 February 2016

We stayed three nights in this lovely paradise as we searched for the ever elusive tiger. The rooms are clean and comfortable with either a porch or a balcony. Keep in mind that it can be a 5 minute walk to the rooms furthest from the lodge. The food is excellent and plentiful. It was fun to watch the young artist in residence create. Wifi is available in the area outside the lodge office and it actually worked most of the time!

Kanha Earth lodge

“Incredible Experience and Staff”

Kjaj2313 Placerville, California Stayed March 2016, travelled as a couple

Our guide did his best.The rooms are incredible, the staff is absolutely AMAZING, food is delicious. They grow most of their own vegetables and they feed you non-stop. We had an unbelievable time. Our safari guide was very knowledgeable; everything was always very prompt and on time. Staff was the greatest part of the experience which says a lot since the Lodge was just as great as the pictures show. I would highly recommend staying at this location for your visit to Kanha.

Wonderful days at Denwa Backwater Escape.

Horst Jürgen Gawlik- 27/11/19

“We were very amazed about the wonderful, luxury tree house,where we did stay unfortunally only for two nights. It is worth to stay there some more days. And we will never forget the romantic candlelight dinner in the bush with the stars above us and surrounded by the voices of the cicadas and birds. We did enjoy the perfect, friendly service. And many thanks to our naturalist, who gave us so many informations about plants and animal wildlife. And she led us to a unique picknick place in a beautiful scenery above a lake.”

Highly recommend anyone planning to visit satpura to stay at Denwa. The resort has excellent facilities and the staff is really really helpful and nice. Special thanks to Harinder for arranging our safaris and showing us around the national park. We even got to see a tiger!! And the staff even arranged an amazing outdoor dinner for us on the last night, complete with a bonfire. The park itself is totally untouched and definitely a must visit for all wildlife enthusiasts

Ken River Lodge

“A wonderful experience of nature”

Judith S

The lodge has a fantastic setting on the banks of the river and rooms in the forest. If you are looking for 5* luxury hotel amenities then this is not for you and you must expect the inevitable quirks of staying in a remote location. Some reviewers don't seem to have taken account of this. The central treehouse area is beautiful and views of the river incomparable. The owner and staff could not be more welcoming and accommodating. Our stay was too short but an hour on the river in the lodge rowing boat viewing birds as the sun set was one of the highlights of our entire trip to India and a walk in the forest with a local guide from the hotel was not to be missed either. If you are a nature lover go there.

“Stunning setting”

Maldon, United Kingdom Stayed February 2016, travelled as a couple

We only spent 2 nights here but I wish it could have been more. I liked our room with its spacious, rustic feel and enormous, comfortable bed, but the best bit is the tree house. This is the dining area and it overlooks the Ken River a stunning place to have breakfast or watch the sunset. The food was great and we enjoyed a jeep safari (no tigers at this time though!)

Pench Tree Lodge

Comfort and Luxury in the midst of wilderness

Harita S Achanta- 10/03/20

“Pugdundee safaris are professionals at what they do. Their cottages are well designed to provide comfort, luxury and at the same time offer sustainable living standards. We stayed for three nights and our best experiences included: Walking around the estate, safari to Pench national park, bicycling around the villages nearby, moonlight dinner in the wild, and delicious food at each meal with a special mention to their homemade rose icecream. Their staff is very polite and friendly as we got lot of local information from Devender Yadav, Pankaj, Harish and Gaurav. Wonderful stay and would like to visit again!.”
