Dev Vilas , Mukhi Zone. A lovely property to stay in Kanha. The Resort is single handedly managed by an amazing Lady , she is an amazing host, extremely caring , very particular and a great Naturalist. The Staff, a group of young boys are equally amazing, very well trained, respectful and courteous. Superb service without wasting any time. The chef makes sure, they understand your personal preferences and serves great food with most of the home grown veggies. And they serve Non - Veg , amazing Pizza’s & Pasta’s. Their Forest Jeep (Gypsy) team is very informative and have all the information about the forest and the tigers you may want to know about. Dev Vilas Resort, Room’s are Extremely clean and Neat, very good quality of Linen. All bathrooms are well maintained and equipped with Hot Water at any hour of the day. And The Best part is , they have 2 Washrooms in each Room. Which makes it easier for both the guest to be ready in time for their Safari’s. In all a Perfect place to stay in Kanha.

I spent a week in Kanha in January and stayed at the camp and loved every minute of it! Saily and her staff made every attempt to make my stay memorable. From great food to great tiger sightings, they made it happen! They went above and beyond with their hospitality…for example, when they found out I was craving Indian street food, Saily and her chef cooked up amazing and authentic Pav Bhaji, Dabeli, and Vada Pav! I thought I was in Mumbai! Rohit was a great driver for all of my game drives…he passionately and tirelessly (10 game drives) kept searching for tigers and I ended up with 12 sightings! If you stay at the camp and are unlucky in your game drive spotting tigers, please make sure to ask Saily to put on red lipstick and join you on your safari…I thought it was a superstition but it worked for me. Every time she joined me in a safari with her red lipstick on, we spotted a tiger! Go figure! Can’t wait to visit Camp Dev Vilas again!

We stayed there from 18th to 22nd March 2022. It was a wonderful experience. Right from pick up at Nagpur airport in a comfortable Innova to drop at at the airport, reception on arrival at the hotel, wet tissues and a cool drink after every safari, fantastic food - veg / non-veg, clean rooms, all necessary amenities in the room with an additional toilet (which helps when you are sharing the room, to get ready for especially morning safaris), very courteous and efficient staff and hence very good service in the restaurant / house keeping etc., good Gypsy with covered seats and a good knowledgeable driver. There is nothing I could complain about. The property also is nice to move about with a swing and sit out, good birdwatching in the mornings (if you are not on a safari). I wish to add a word or two for the manager Saily Gokhale. a great multi tasker. Looked after all the guests needs, kitchen, accounts, chekc ins & outs, the hotel staff and those who work in the field (they grow lots of vegies, for captive consumption as well as commercial purpose) and field / crops (she gave us some home grown chilies when we left) and also found time to accompany us on our safaris and shared her knowledge about the jungle, trees, animals and birds etc. Way to go Saily, keep up your good work. You are an asset to Dev Vilas.

Camp Dev Vilas is just THE place to be for the Kanha experience! Everything that you need to have a great experience is available here!! Rustic & clean rooms with all the required amenities, a well ventilated dining area, beautiful picturesque surroundings, helpful and courteous staff, excellent food (each meal was special… did not repeat a single dish in the 5 days that we were there), sumptuous packed breakfast for the morning safari, a well kept and clean gypsy, driver Rohit who made sure we were present for all the action … it was all just perfect!! A big shout out to Naturalist Saily Gokhale, who manages and runs the resort, so passionately yet professionally!! Her in depth knowledge of the Kanha jungle and it’s flora and fauna is remarkable! She did everything to make our Kanha experience truly memorable and special!! Many thanks Saily … you can expect us to be back soon!! Wishing you and Camp Dev Vilas the best…

My family and friends join me in appreciating the team at Camp Dev Vilas for ensuring a very comfortable and memorable stay for 2nights that we stayed with them. Location is perfect. The property is very efficiently managed by Ms.Saily and her team. Rooms are very well appointed. Extra care taken by the chef and kitchen staff to cater to specific needs of guests. Very tasty food and, equally well presented. Stay is very well trained in meeting consumer expectations. I haven't stayed in such a fantastic property in a very long time. It was a memorable stay andnI will recommend this place to all.my friends who intend to visit Kanha.

Omnom & BBGN has consider camp as thier own home. We usually stay there for 2-3 days. We come there twice a year and it is our second home. Writing review has no relevance for us because there is nothing that we don't like there. Kailash is the best man you have there. May the business grow to all high and you guys continue to be as humble as you are now. Best of luck

Camp Dev Vilas provides great hospitality - all the staff are very helpful and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Rooms are nice and spacious and love that there are two bathrooms which makes getting ready early in the morning easy. Food is good too, though the juices are concentrates and not fresh, so maybe that can improve but its a minor issue. One issue I have with Dev Vilas is that it is not eco friendly enough for a place in a jungle - though it gives water in glass bottles, it also gives polyester face towels for freshening up, uses plastic wrap to cover food and gives plastic for the journey back which can be reduced. Other than this, Dev Vilas provided a great stay for our Kanha holiday.. We enjoyed staying here for two nights.

Response from anurag sharma, Owner at Camp Dev Vilas
Responded 8 Jan 2022
Thank you for your review, glad to know that your recent stay with us was comfortable. Do acknowledge your feedback regarding use and throw face towels and plastic film wrap. Use and throw face towels are a temporary measure in order to reduce COVID risk. We are constantly working towards following sustainable practices like rain water harvesting, usage of LED bulbs only, composting of kitchen waste which is used as manure for our kitchen garden instead of chemicals, usage of steel plates and mugs for safaris etc. We will definitely look at other alternative for packing . Thank you once again for your feedback.
