1. We (myself and a friend of mine) visited Bandhavgarh Tiger reserve (BTR) between 28th Jun to 30th Jun 2014.
2. We stayed at MP Tourism run resort Whiter tiger forest lodge.¯
3. The resort is located about 500 meters from the Tala entry gate and convenient to reach the Tala zone. The Tala zone is the most preferred zone at Bandhagarh to sight tigers.
4. There are about 30 rooms (including cottages) at the resort. Most of the rooms are fitted with air conditioners while a few rooms are available with desert coolers.
5. The rooms are fitted with two queen size beds and are comfortable.
6. Rooms have a television with Tatasky connection.
7. The resort has Generators to support in case of electricity failure. Only the lights and fans can be operated with the Generator.
8. The room also has a small fridge.
9. The toilets are neat and clean. A western toilet and a shower area with shower curtain are the highlights of the bathroom cum toilet.
10. Soaps, shampoo and moisturizer are provided by the resort.
11. The towels in the bathroom are replaced on daily basis (even if you are staying for 2 or 3 days)
12. The restaurant provides buffet service during the peak season. The food is really very tasty. I just loved the breakfast comprising of Poha, Bread and Omlette, Paratha, Aloo subzi and Dahi.
13. A bar is also available (at the resort) and basic stuff is available.
14. A small swimming pool is available to have a leisurely swim after a morning safari.
15. Kids playing area comprises of swings, see-saw and a small slide.
16. Table tennis can also be played by those interested.
17. The resort has a mini library with books on Madhya Pradesh, Wild life, and some fiction books also.
18. For the winter months, they have ear marked an area for bon fire.
19. Even though it is a government owned resort, the hotel staff go out of the way to make sure that the tourists enjoy their stay at the resort. They have been trained very well to meet the customer requirement. Kudos to the hotel manager.
20. The resort arranges for the jeep for the safari (it is better to make a online booking for the jeep safari entry charges)
21. The place has a stream flowing behind the resort. And a variety of birds (like Black Hooded Oriole, Grey Horn-bill, Barbet etc) can be seen in the premises.
22. Overall a comfortable stay in that resort.

Hotel is very fine. It is a good place to stay with family. Location and appearance were best. Pick up and drop facility was not there. Rooms were very good. Rooms were spacious and well maintained. Food was good. Services were excellent and on time. I took my food in the hotel. Geyser facility was available. Complimentary breakfast was not given. Booking, front office, and reception service was very nice. No outdoor activities were organized. Kolakham is a very nice place for travelers. I travelled in the month of January with my family. The trip was mountainous and quite adventurous.

Nice visit to white tiger resort. A good family time together away from a busy city life. Resort was very nice. Amenities was very nice. Service was excellent. No major complains.
The thing in which they can improve is
. More no of waiters
. Room service too late
. Toilets with lots of ants,very difficult to bath.
Rest every thing was ok.
Nice place to visit again.

The lodge owned and operated by MP TOURISM. A cozy and nice place to live. All facilities were available. The food, dirk in short the restaurant was good. Morning tea is served at the room. The tea was at door step around 5 am, as the activity starts well before the dawn.
The rooms were not a regular hotel which we are used. The rooms are independent small - i would not be wrong in saying living huts. The rooms very airy, in the jungle provides the animal calls - it is rare. The hotel has also constructed a viewing area, where the sight opens into the jungle. It is once luck to encounter the animal. While we were there, we were able to hear the cat call, but could not locate, we also climbed a tall viewing tower.
There is a huge quadrangle, one can have some activity if in a group. A good place to live.

I had been to Bandhavgarh for obvious reason...WILDLIFE and I had a fabulous experience at the national park.

I chose White Tiger Forest Lodge because it is an MP tourism development corporation website and I had heard several good reports from friends and acquaintances.

The property is located in the midst of the jungle and it has twin cottages spread around a huge area. There is a central dining hall and a sit out area which is good for parties and bonfire.

During my visit, the hotel manager was very co-operative in fixing my seat in an evening safari in spite of no booking from my side.

In Bandhavgarh, like rest of the national park, one needs to book a jeep safari well in advance. Otherwise take a chance like I did and hop on to some ride which has one vacant seat.

The food quality at White Tiger was quite good. And the rooms were well appointed.

This is the one off the best resort on Bandhavgarh National Park. It is situated near Tala gate and around 10 min drive from Magadhi gate. Food and lodging in clubbed within the package. Morning breakfast was excellent. Staffs were good. Non AC rooms are good, and the best part is it has a canopy walk near the non AC rooms which overlook the Tala zone. We have a safari at Magdhi Zone and have able see tiget there Have a swimming pool which can be accessed all over the day. It is very relaxing to have a swim after a morning park ride. Lots of playing area for children within the resort with seesaw,swing and mary go round.

Best Experience: Plenty of children playing area. Food was excellent.

For the lodge , it was good. Its a govt resort , so sites/travel agents will not get anything out by endorsing it, but in my personal opinion it is the best place to stay in Bandhavgarh.

Best Experience: The jeep rides start from the lodge itself so if you have booked it in time, you can get the seat of your choice. Food is good, the environs are excellent and hotel staff really nice.

Worst Experience: None.
