I would like to share a very bad experience that I have experienced at Prestige Nature's Resort. Check-in date 30th Dec 2015 for 2 Nights, 2 Room. Amount paid Rs. 22575/-. Which means 22575/4 = Rs. 5643 per room per night. Now after paying such a huge amount I faced a lot many problems.
Now please note the following points which will make you things more clear.
1. Wastage of time, lied to me and lack of services:- First we left Indore at 6 in morning and we reached hotel at 7 in evening. We were tired after travelling continuously for 12 hours and to relax ourselves we asked for spa facility which is clearly mentioned on their website. Now we were told by management that please wait we are finding keys of spa. After an hour when I asked them what happened management told me that they are unable to find the keys and they will break the lock at tentatively 8. 15 pm management broke the lock of spa.
When I asked management who will be the masseuse, management told that therapist will be from local village (Local Villagers). I was shocked and asked management to give me proper therapist. Management said that only local villagers will do the massage. I was not comfortable than too I said OK call the local villager. Management said we will call Local villagers therapist within 10 minutes.
Even after waiting for 10 minutes the local villager therapist did not came. After half an hour a guy came. I was shocked to see such a therapist, he was a typical local villager. Also Management told me that for men there would be a male therapist at the same time, at a nearby spa (Club Mahindra), they had professionals working for them and there were no gender restrictions. I was shocked to find such typical thinking of management. Also I was told by the management that only local villagers will do spa in whole Kanha but just half a Kilometre away from my hotel there was Club Mahindra Resort where I found a proper Spa. This was management also lied to me.
This was management wasted my more than 2 hours and also lied to me.
2. No A la carte only buffet, No Room Service, False promises, No Taxi Service:- Around 10 we asked management for dinner but we were told that they only have buffet and no A la carte. Whereas all hotels on New Year's eve have both buffet as well as a la carte. Also on hotel's website many promising things were written about dinner and restaurants which I found to be completely false. When we asked management why only buffet we were told that management do not have enough manpower. Also for any type of room service we were asked to do by ourselves as there was limited manpower.
As management were not having A la carte we asked management to arrange a taxi for us so that we can go out and have our dinner. We also told management just arrange a taxi for which we will also pay charges so that we can go out and have our dinner, but again management kept us waiting for an hour and then told that we can't arrange a taxi.
Just because of this we were forced to have buffet in hotel itself. Only 2 of my friend had dinner who told us that such food is so much bad in taste that even they are eating for the sake of fulfilling their stomach whereas 3 of us slept empty stomach. Disappointing..!!!
3. No Wild Life Sanctuary, False promises on brochure and website:- 31st Morning we asked management to arrange a wildlife safari for us. Again management told that we can't arrange a wild safari. Whereas when I went to Ranthambore in November month it was management who arranged wild life sanctuary for us twice in a day. Again we were disappointed by such behaviour of management.
Now we were left with nothing and asked management to give us a brochure of their hotel. When management gave us we found various things written on that now when we asked management for these facilities we found that management could not give us because they don't exist only and are just given on brochure, facilities like:- Night Safari, Nature Walks, Jungle Trail, Multi Cuisine Restaurant. Also Management could not explain us the meaning of Nature Walk and Jungle Trail.
4. Lack of knowledge by management:- I asked management for morning breakfast a person in black sweater from management told me that it will cost you Rs. 250/- after an hour another person from management in a beige jacket came he told that it will cost you Rs. 350/-. Management also did not have knowledge of their hotel rates.
5. No basic facilities like water bottles:- At 31st night at 12 we asked for mineral water but management could not provide us with sealed water bottles and tried to give us unsealed water bottles which is a CRIME in itself and told us that water bottles got finished and will be available only next morning. Now here one of friend had to take medicine by cold drink as water was not available and also two of my friends were drunk to whom we asked to manage any how without water.
Next morning also at 7. 30 am I myself went downstairs to fetch water bottles but no bottles were available there I was told within 10 minutes waiter will arrange water bottles but he could only arrange me bottles at 9 am. This way we were without water for more than 9 hours. SO RIDICULOUS.
Worst Rooms, No Wifi, No Intercom, No room service, Insects problem, Damaged sink, Damaged flush, Faulty Geyser, Lack of knowledge by waiters:- Now coming on to rooms we were given room numbers 203 and 204. There was small gate for room No. 203 on which there was a huge spider web and we had to pass below this spider web. There was no intercom facility working for room No. 203 because of which we had to come again and again downstairs for any of our requirements. The bathroom sink was full dirty and when any us takes shower the water gets logged in the bathroom itself as the sink was fully jammed. Also those were faulty geyser which gave hot water for 1 minutes and cold water for remaining 4 minutes this way we had to take bath in cold water at 19 degree Celsius (approximate). Also there was no Wi-Fi in the hotel. On interactions with waiter we found that they did not have any knowledge of facilities most of them were new on job.
I hope after looking at this you will understand what me and my friends have went through. This way our New Year was spoiled and had to suffer so much like went without water for more than 9 hours, wastage of time, wastage of energy and no peace of mind.
Kanha National Park is not exactly easy to get to, but for the wildlife enthusiast, has that ever really been a deterrent? If anything, the fact that it is slightly harder to get to, made us more enthusiastic - happy as we were that fewer people would get there!
The Indian safari experience can be somewhat under-whelming, packed as one is into a 'tourist bus' with bawling babies and noisome cries of 'dekho, dekho, sher!'
Shergarh camp at Kanha ensured that our safari experience was worlds away from this spectacle. Credit goes of course also to the authorities at Kanha for ensuring a limit on the number of jeeps entering the national park at any one time, but the folks at Shergarh take it up one notch by making the wildlife holiday about so much more than a ride into the jungle.
First, for those who like their creature comforts even when in the wild - you need have no worries. The 'tents' at Kanha have all the appearance of tents, with the comfort of a good hotel room. Of course, you don't have television, cell phone connectivity is minimal, and power cuts can happen, but who needs those when you are being serenaded by the morning calls of birds and can look out of your window to see if a jungle cat is passing by?
All the tents have comfortable ensuite bathrooms and very comfortable beds that you can sink into.
The best part is that the folks at Shergarh organize excursions into the surrounding countryside - if you have the time, don't miss walks with their naturalists, or gentle climbs into the sloping terrain nearby. Evenings are all about meeting your fellow guests over a campfire and sharing stories of who saw what that day. The food is wholesome and delicious, although perhaps slightly biased towards a Continental selection for part of the meals. (They will arrange something a little more Indian, if you need it).
The property itself is beautiful, with a calm, small lake and a walkway over it - the stuff dreams are made of.
Go definitely, if the idea of getting away from it all appeals to you, and you want a holistic wildlife experience, not just a ride in a jeep to see a tiger. (We did see a tiger, but the holiday as a whole was so delightful that it ended up being just one of the many high points!)
p.s. If your party has people in it who are not very into the outdoors, you may want to take along some indoor games or other such activities. But, Kanha is really about the outdoors!
We were real late in check-in. We arrived around 10:30 at the hotel. We had booked 5 cottages. All of them were huge, spacious, clean and well maintained. This resort being in the middle of a jungle did have it's cons like lizards in most rooms and huge spiders but that was due to location. The personal bath tubs out in the open for each room and the bathrooms were well maintained. Shortage of toilet paper in our room but wasn't a hassle as we were carrying our own.
Manager was very courteous he knew we had travelled a long way and were tired so he asked us to first have dinner then do the mandatory check-ins. Food was yum, enjoyed by all in our group. Less spicy not oily and just perfect.
No televisions in any of the rooms but that's the best part!! We all got plenty of family time. You might get lost in the jungle if your driver doesn't know the location. Thankfully our driver knew the place well.
Huge spaces and well maintained, we even wanted to extend our stay and make full use of all the amenities but couldn't do so due to less time.
Common bathrooms were not clean which was expected. The cottages looked like mere huts from outside but were tastefully done inside.
First time at Taj Safaris, and Banjaar Tola does live up to the hype. Situated amidst the dense Sal forests in the buffer zone of Kanha, each of the tents offer splendid views of the river Banjaar and settle you right in the lap of nature. The tents are massive and done up luxuriously with a noticeable tribal decor. You are assigned a personal Butler and the service is impeccable - from housekeeping to all special requests. Apart from BSNL and IDEA, there is no mobile network available and WiFi is only available in the common lobby area, which I didn't mind at all.
For the Safari, an expert Naturalist is allocated, and he (Vipul) ensured that we had a wonderful experience in the morning in the Safari. In the evening, he also gave an insightful discourse on Indian wildlife and all our forest reserves.
The only complaint I have is the good. Given the exorbitant amount (2000) they charge per meal per person, the set menu has very limited options (there is hardly any non-veg for lunch! ) and the food is nothing great. However, they do make up a bit through some amazing outdoor setups for dinner, which they keep changing daily.
Purpose: We're on a holiday trip to visit National park along with family consisting of 12 members. We've planned T20 world cup final match to be seen in big screen and experience is great.
Amenities: Swimming pool: It's good for a people of 10 person at a point. Also, a attach section for kids which is good. Water is clean and we've a good 4-5hrs of water games there.
Conference Room: It's a good conference room which has all essentials for a corporate meeting and can accommodate about 30 person easily.
Indoor games: This need to be improved. Table tennis bats need to be improved. Pool table also need to be repaired (Playable). Carom need to be included. Badminton is there but no separate court is there but playing area is available.
Food Court: It is very good and can accommodate 100 people at a time. Ambience is good and with respect to quality of food is good.
Service: Staff were good at services. As we need to go early in safari ride, breakfast is ready at 5: 30 AM and it's packed good so can take later during safari break.
Lunch and Dinner: Quality of food is good and very helpful staff. As kids wants few cold drinks, they happily served.
Room Service: One need to go to office and ask if something require.
Advice: They've charged 1550 per person which include dinner (non veg included), breakfast, lunch (veg). Room is AC. We booked 3 rooms and they given extra beds. Ambience is good and place is naturally very beautiful. It's located 1 km away from the entrance gate which is good. It is bit difficult to trace Mogli Resort as less advertising/direction board is there while travelling as compared to others.
Overall: It's a good experience. It's advised to take two safari i. e. Early morning and evening safari. Morning safari: Kanha zone (Fees is 4400 ) and evening: Kesli (3700).
