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.

The resort is very calm, peaceful and a nice place to have a leisure vacation with family or friends. We stayed around 3 days at the resort and it was one of the best hospitality that I have ever been offered with. The staff was very polite to us. Anything that we needed was just a phone call away. I personally appreciate the food and ambiance of the resort. Location of the resort feels like you are at someplace alone in the middle of a forest with all the facilities available to you. Overall it was a great resort for our money's worth.

One of the best resorts I have ever visited Monsoon forest Bandhavgarh. The campus was extraordinary and innovative. Staff was knowledgeable and courteous. And the food was as pure(organic) as it can be with the most impeccable taste. The rooms(Nest) were luxurious and large in size. Also hats off to their efforts to conserve the nature. If you are visiting Bandhavgarh National Park, I strongly recommend you to stay in Monsoon forest Bandhavgarh Resort.

Ok this review gonna be very interesting. Have been to many resorts which are much bigger, more luxurious, has more ameneties and even bigger brands, however Monsoon Forest is one of it's kind, one of among most special ones I have been to so far. Difficult to rate this one...as sometimes you cant rate anything so close to your soul. Though few things I want to call out: 1. Room - Was good though toiletries needs to be replaced with new one now 2. Food: Good one what you really need in such a natural place 3. Staff: Truly amazing, Have nothing which they didnt attempt to make us feel comfortable. Whether it was asking for additional blankets or some special arrangements or even  providing separate bone fire or even keeping few seats reserved for you for the new year eve without even asking for. Such small things creates a big impact. It makes you feel special, well taken care of. 4. Location: Amidst nature as raw as you can find best of its kind. Nature walk within the resort and around the resort is full of flora and fauna. Dont forget to take a troll nearby fields and ponds. For sure you will find many birds never seen so far in your life. Special Mention: Won't be fair if I don't mention Resort Manager Mahinder Ji and Naturalist Mr. Anshu. Manhinder Ji took care or every small said or even unsaid requests. He was very diligent in briefing about the report, place and various activities available. He went beyond his roles and responsibility to made our stay a memorable one. Truly appreciate his ability in engaging in a healthy conversation. He really made us feel like home away from home. Mr. Anshu kept us involved in long talks regarding Bandavgarh, nature, Jungle, ecosystem and his passion about being a nature lover. Had wonderful time with him. Generally I believe in keep on exploring new places and difficult to repeat the same place. However I am so looking forward for a next trip to Bandhavgarh...much of the credit goes to Monsoon Forest. Thanks for making our memories memorable.

The team is very unprofessional, they used few balloons & tiny marigold flowers just to make a heart and all of this they charged us 3000/-, it should be max Rs500 but we were forced to pay full payment. Also there are no lights so if you want a horror resort it is a must stay place. It was my first wedding anniversary and our evening was ruined by their team. But the staff at the resort is very nice, their team managing from Capital is really unprofessional. Very bad experience.
