hmm.. to begin with, before going there, I had read the reviews.. and was feeling excited. In reality, everything turned out to be good and if I can add, a little better than what I had expected. I for one am going there again in January :)
The place is near Panna Tiger Reserve, so the access to the sanctuary was real quick. Even though april was a little hot, it was lovely to go in there early in the morning and hear all the birds, see a bear or neel-guy. The hotel's own guides were quite good and respected by people around. a certain plus for me.
Once back at the hotel, there are two places you can linger around, either at your own rooms private roof, or at the tree house by the river. (where I usually stay put). And once at the tree house, there is food and drinks that you can enjoy almost through the day. A dip in the river is highly recommended for those who like a little swimming.
Hmm, finally the people. The hosts were truly superb people and their stories were just outstanding. Their hotel has been affected by floods in the past, but the way they've rebuilt the whole place, I have to give them credit for loving what they are doing. And the end result was a very pleasant experience for us.
Also, I was there over the 'holi' weekend, and I can tell you there is nothing to beat holi in the village followed by a dip in the river and some pakora's to go.
