Taj Mahua Kothi, A Taj Safari Lodge - Bandhavgarh National Park

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.

Amazing customer service, food, accommodations and safari guides
We had a wonderful three night stay. The food at every meal was fantastic and the safari guides were incredibly knowledgeable. To top it off, we saw tigers twice!

Home away from home
The property is lovely and the staff were the warmest people I’ve met. I feel like I know some of them personally :) It was the first time at a hotel where we really switched off and didn’t have to think about anything other than enjoying everything the place and people had to offer like the gorgeous patio and delicious local cuisine. We learned a lot about tigers and all the conservation efforts in the area so all in all a wholesome experience. Special thanks to Bishnu, Amit, Karun, and the chefs for a memorable visit.

many tigers and soft comfort
First of all, we have been very lucky to see 9 tigers in 4 different moments in 4 of our 2 game drives: over any expectation. Room are very warm and comfortable, better of what we expected looking at web site pictures. Very good staff in hotel and excellent safari guide.
