Had a great visit to this Taj Safari property in April and were very successful in viewing the tigers. Food was excellent and service was very friendly. I would make sure to book the all-inclusive package with food as I'm not sure where else you would go to eat nearby. They do not service alcohol, so either bring some wine or have India rupees and they will go out and buy you beer. They have the "stadium seating" style safari trucks, which are much nicer than most all other safari trucks in the park. I would recommend booking a private safari if possible otherwise you could be with people who have other interests in the park besides tigers (birds, deer, etc) or traveling with young children, which is not always enjoyable. For me, it was definitely worth the extra cost so I could focus on seeing tigers. Kartikay Singh was a great guide through the park!

Must make your safari bookings in advance for three different gates and plan visit minimum two to three day's . Young children will even enjoy the place and if want to move in a group is another best option

I was at Mahua Kothi - together with my 8 years old son - for 3 nights at the end of May 2018. This lodge is a dream! The bungalows are very tastefully decorated and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had Raj and Vishnu as our staff both were perfect! Because of the heat (> 43C) we had lunch served in our bungalow. On the first evening the dinner was served under a big Mahua tree. The second evening we had dinner on the upper terrace under the stars. The food is very, very good and is very varied. Who wants gets also pasta and pizza. We also were very successful in the search for tigers! Kharun our ranger found different tigers in different situations during our four game drives for us. Such attentive, friendly staff, good food and nice accommodation. It could not be more beautiful!

We stayed in 2 cottages and were wowed by the friendliness of the staff, great food and impeccable service! A special shout out to the property manager Amit, Naturalist Harsh, Guest services Sadhvi, Chef Ajit, Butler Vishnu and especially Namrata for making it happen at such short notice. We have a lot of nuggets but one outstanding example is when we reached the property after our first safari, Amit informed that due to lower occupancy, we would be charged a nearly 30% less tariff. This when we had already checked in earlier at the agreed rate!! We are looking forward to revisiting with family coming in from US later in June.

I visited Mahua Kothi, Bandhavgarh from May 20-25, 2018 primarily for the wildlife experience and in that I was not disappointed. However, overall it was a mixed experience for the reasons stated hereunder. I spotted five tigers, the same number I had spotted in Nagarhole forest last year when I stayed at Orange County (now Evolve Back Resorts). Karun, the head naturalist accompanied me for all Safaris from Mahua Kothi, and was excellent at his work. The Lodge is beautiful and the dining area especially is built up in the old Safari Lodge style and is a real treat for the eyes. The cottages are rustic but nice in their own way. The upkeep can be better. I spotted cobwebs in the AC vents which are all wooden. The layout takes a little getting used to as the washbasins are behind the bed and separated only by the wooden partition. Still, it's a good feel once you get used to it and adds to the Safari feel. The management part needs some serious attention. You are basically left to your own devices after you return from Safari and have a cool drink. A call or two during the day with suggestions for a snack or two would have been appreciated and were seriously required; a light eater like me would probably decline but the gesture is required for a feeling of connection, especially since breakfast is in the forest and is necessarily a makeshift affair. There was no call or suggestion even once in this respect or even to enquire if everything was alright and to one's satisfaction. There was no clarity or clear indication regarding any suggestions in this respect or any other hospitable options of any sort which may have led one to feel that one was in the zone of consideration of the staff. This was a very ordinary part of my experience. Mine was an all-meals-paid-for package and nothing remained to be done in that respect. The dietary preferences were noted and followed. The food was generally good without being excellent and while some dishes were good to very good, the others were ordinary. The complete lack of communication during the day was made worse by a peculiar experience to the contrary. In other words, when communicating was required, it was absent and when it was not required, it was present. I was travelling alone and it ought to have been clear that a guest travelling solo is used to his own company. After a hurried 'I hope you don't mind' from the staff, I had compulsory company at dinner almost every day. It should be known that a gentleman's response to a quick 'I hope you don't mind' would almost always be 'Of course, not'. The pity is that the staff may otherwise be quite pleasant but due care and attention ought to have been given to the fact whether a single guest wishes to have company or not at a given time, especially at meal times. Conversations during Safaris are one thing and at leisure time are quite another. The distinction has been lost. As a result, the guest is further put out when he is constrained to mention this rather indelicate aspect. This is after all a Taj property and it is very surprising that basic and fundamental errors of this kind were made which really take away from the experience in a major way. Vishnu, Raj Kumar and Bhola were excellent butlers with their courtesy and efficiency. The chef asked after every meal if the food was good which was a welcome point. There is a quaint and rustic little swimming pool which I loved and used every evening without exception. However, on the last evening the experience was marred by having a lady in the pool, who was fully clothed in non-swimming attire. This took away a lot from the swimming pleasure that I had been having, since it was a breach of basic swimming etiquette, and appropriate swimwear is a must at all pools. It was all the more irresponsible because this was the visiting family of a staff member, as I was informed, and better care could have been taken to avoid this sort of a thing. After all options are limited in the wilderness in any case and diminished pleasures even in those are not warranted. Starters before dinner were not always announced, revealed or presented which was a poor practice. I am not overly keen on starters but that is not the point. The end result was that if the guests kind of aggressively pursue things on their own inspiration then they will be obliged, else not. But if that is not a guest's style, then good luck to them. In a similar way, since there are no afternoon Safaris on Wednesdays, the brochure/ information at the website etc. promises High Tea at a village or a Nature walk. I heard nothing about it at all during my stay, which included a Wednesday. It is possible that I may not have gone in any case but that would be missing the whole point. The pick up from and drop to the airport was seamless, efficient and trouble free. Safari drives were satisfying and conducted with attention and expertise by the naturalist. For me, that was a significant positive. Bandhavgarh is a beautiful forest and well worth visiting for the Tigers and the vegetation alone. The tiger spotting and overall experience was very good indeed. Karun, the head naturalist was a wealth of information during the Safaris and our best experience was at the forefront of his mind, always. He was courteous, an expert drive over the sometimes tricky roads and very knowledgeable about the forest and the animals. His expertise during all the Safari drives was the highlight of my stay at Mahua Kothi. Overall though, I would say I was quite disappointed with the way my visit was handled owing to the aforesaid reasons. Taj is a premium brand name in hospitality but this trip did not illustrate it. Also, the trip is not inexpensive, to say the least, despite the special summer rates, and for that reason turned out to give the feeling that it was not really full value for money, given some of the areas which need working on. All this could have been avoided because it is otherwise a lovely property. A trip that could easily be a 4-5 Stars experience gets 3 Stars from me. A few suggestions based on my positive experience at Orange County (Evolve Back Resorts) at the border of Nagarhole National Park last year relating to small but important gestures at that establishment; I do not think these depend on whether an establishment is a Resort or a Safari Lodge. It is just about the human connection and treating the guest in a particular way: 1. A bowl of fruits and light snacks in the room which was replenished every day if required; 2. A call or two everyday to ensure I was enjoying myself and if at all there was anything I needed, accompanied by actual and valuable suggestions; and 3. Maintaining the personal connection even after check out by asking if my flight formalities had been successfully completed at the Bangalore airport. This was a pleasant surprise for me at the time.
