Discover the beautiful jungle of Bandhavgarh National Park with your stay at Mahua Kothi. The national park claims to have the highest density of tigers. The resort had traditional style kutiyas (jungle village huts) built in the vernacular style of Central India. Since you are staying amidst the jungle, expect to wake up to the chirping of the birds. Do not miss to savor a mahua martini along with dinner under the mahua tree. You could also take a guided nature walk with the naturalist and spot some wild flora and fauna.

HolidayIQ Traveller Dipon Dutta shares, “Mahua Kothi has twelve charming jungle village huts , built in the vernacular style. Each is accessed through private courtyards with shaded seating and traditional mud floors. Interior is equally awesome. It was a lifetime experience . Food was mouthwatering and lip-smacking. Service was complete professional. I loved it.”

If you are looking for a wilderness without compromising on luxury, look no further. Udai Vilas Palace next to Bharatpur Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect stay option. Visit the Keoladeo National Park with an ornithologist or just take a village safari.

HolidayIQ Traveller Navin Khoria says, “The resort location is just perfect. The garden seemed to have been just right to soak sun-light on afternoons and enjoy camp-fire at late winter evenings. They welcomes us with Tilak and a welcome juice. The decor and architecture inside the lobby was in tune with overall feel of the hotel giving a feel of bygone colonial era and make one feel what must the true residents must have felt in similar palaces. The room I was given had all amenities, a traveller looks for. Though I found that they lacked in cleanliness. Otherwise, the room maintained the standard set by the entrance, and lobby of the hotel. The Rajasthani Folk and Kathputli dance arranged by the hotel late in the evening, was a delight and it seemed that the art should also be encouraged by the concerned authorities because this is what India represents. An old world charm where cultures and traditions meet so beautifully that a person instantly identifies irrespective of which part of the world he belongs and which language he speaks. The wake up call next morning was followed by tea in the lobby before moving on to the Bird Sanctuary. On return, the breakfast was ready and it was served with warmth and politeness.Overall, if you want to nestle yourself in the lap of nature amidst greenery and peace, warmth and care, Udai Vilas Palace should be on your checklist.”
