Monsoons are considered sacred in India. At Monsoon Forest, we consider nature, the forests and its beings just as sacred. Experience this sacredness with us at Monsoon Forest, an oasis of serenity amidst acres of beautiful grasslands. It is the perfect base to explore the magic of the Bandhavgarh Forest, India's tiger haven. With breathtaking views of the forest, grasslands and Bandhavgarh Fort, our ten-acre resort is just a few minutes drive from the Bandhavgarh Forest area. We are a unique Indian luxury eco-resort with beautiful, air-conditioned cottages with modern en-suite facilities. Our indigenous design draws inspiration from the earthy mud houses. For guests wanting a real wildlife experience, we have beautifully crafted luxury tents and cottages set under the shade of glorious Mahua trees. Surrounded by grasslands, you can enjoy hearing various animal and bird calls and even spot them roaming within our premises. With us, you can enjoy personalized and experienced guided jeep and elephant safaris. Indulge in various other activities like Bandhavgarh Fort excursions, birding picnics, private dining, local village visits and reforestation project. Enjoy relaxing massages or a swim in our pool set amidst nursery and organic vegetable farm. We offer homemade traditional Indian cuisine and local delicacies at our multiple indoor and outdoor dining venues. On request we can also cater for specific dietary needs. We started out as a reforestation project on a piece of barren land, devastated by overgrazing and logging. We are a work in progress, determined to bring back the forest and to make it a sanctuary for the rare and endangered indigenous trees and plants of the central Indian jungles, one of the last remaining homes of tigers in the wild. Join us in promoting responsible and sustainable Eco-tourism. The park opens in mid October every year. This season the safaris will not operate in the park on every Wednesday afternoon but we will keep you busy with other activities and natural history experiences. Monsoon Forest will always be ready to receive guests and promise quality stay and experience.

Monsoon Forest is the worst resort in Bandhavghar. We took 6-7 rooms there for the New Year i.e. 31st Dec 2020 but experience worst Food, terrible staffs, terrible service. We were 7 couples with small kids. In the month of December when cold was on peak that day, they didn't even provide us the proper Blankets, heaters were also not working and some how we managed to sleep that too in sever cold with just ac blankets. Will never suggest anyone to go to this terrible property. His owner hardly matters what's going on in the resort and miss-managed. Manager Mr. Deepak is of no use. Horrible and waste of time and many.

Kate and I (from London) stayed here 1st- 4th February 2020. After a four hour drive from Jabalpur airport, we finally arrived at this beautiful oasis, set in a secluded spot in the middle of a forest and only 20 minutes drive from the main gate of the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve. My wife and I stayed in "Nest 8", very close to the main amenities. This was a very comfortable detached villa. It had a large double bed and a big walk-in shower, reached through double doors. There was a lovely clean swimming pool set in an enclosed part of the beautiful grounds, with lots of "Jungle Babble" (Seven sisters) birds chirping and dashing about everywhere. One day, I took a refreshing dip, as it became quite warm by lunchtime. There was a fan heater in our Nest, which was most welcome in the very cold mornings, when you awake at 5am! The communal areas are beautifully and tastefully furnished with lots of statues, artifacts and many sketches and paintings, quite a few of tigers. We enjoyed the lovely meals in the dining area, which is "open" to the surrounding forest. There is a small pond in front of the main building. In the evenings, when it became quite cold, a brazier would be lit and placed beside our table, which was very welcome. Deepak, the Manager, couldn't have done enough for us- attending to all our needs. One instance, when Kate fell very ill, having unwisely eaten something outside the resort, Deepak rushed her off to see a doctor at the nearest hospital, about 30 minutes away. And on our last morning, at 6am, Deepak, his wife Himani and their very young daughter, came to see us off. Indeed, he waved us off each morning as we set off on our safari drives in the open Maruti jeep, having been loaded with blankets and an excellent packed breakfast. So, our grateful thanks to Deepak, his family and his lovely staff. And yes- we saw 5 tigers in the three days we enjoyed at the Monsoon Forest! We can highly recommend this wonderful place.

I visited Monsoon Forest as a tour leader with a group of clients in April 2019. I have to say I was blown away by the place. Its design first off is very tasteful, artistic and rustic. The rooms are massive and super cumfortable. The surroundings are amazing and one with nature. the staff are super friendly and accomodating. And Deepak the GM is amazing and a true marvel. We had a fantastic time and cant wait to come back again next year
