Revisited Ken River Lodge in Dec 2016, after my first visit in Dec 2012. The place is still amazing and the ambience is as good as ever. Still isolated, with all the peace and quiet of the world. River views from the restaurant are very good. Service and food will leave you very satisfied; and you have a chance of...

The staff was very solicitous the food was simple, tasty and could be tailored to taste and overall s good experience. The lodge and huts were simple, perhaps reflecting its remote location, but badly in need of refreshing. A fair summary would be simple yet adequate. The staff goes a long way to compensate.

Located on the banks of the river, near one of the gates to the tiger reserve, lies this beautiful property . Not easy to find as the signage is modest to non existent and the belief is that people will come nonetheless. It is this attitude that obstructs change and the major part of the accommodation is run down and...

The hotel has a restaurant with a fantastic view of the river . The food is exellent.The national park is just ten minutes by car from the hotel.The rooms are in cottages. Every cottage has two rooms and a big sitting room.They could be cold on winter time but there is a fire place and if requested an electric stove.

Decent hotel with total feel of the rustic jungles.. The good bonfire in the cold winter evenings creates a nice atmosphere for all guests .however, the rooms ,especially the bathrooms can be improved with minor changes. The quality food & service too needs to be improved. On the whole a decent place .

Well lit and cozy rooms. Staff was very helpful during the forest safaris. Dinner time snacks were delicious and welcome. Knowledgeable guides accompanied us. Different type of rooms are available. We stayed in the cottages. Since winter heaters were provided.

Amazing Service by the property manager Siddharth and the assistant manager who also is an amazing guide for safaris. Make sure you have Sheeveendra when you go for safari for amazing spotting of animals. Due to him we were able to spot a leopard far far away in camouflage.

This is a most delightful tranquil place to stay with a beautiful setting on the river. It provides easy access to Panna for the early morning safaris. Staff are excellent and the naturalist (a gentleman from Tibet) has an amazing knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area and this is a great help to bird watchers.

While the place is gorgeously located at the bank of the river Ken, it is basic. And may be it has to be since they have 2 big floods wiping it off in the 90s and again in 2005, and in 2016 there was several feet of flood water I'm the rooms... Hats off to the mgt and their rigor....
