Amazing Experience with Bandhav Vilas. A classy resort built in traditional MP heritage style with modern amenities. Everything about the resort is just amazing. Spacious room with huge LCD TV and Tatasky connection allows you to enjoy some good programs on TV. Each room has clean and huge bath rooms, an open area shower for summers, clean swimming pool and plenty of open space are the biggest plus points of Bandhav Vilas. Food is amazingly tasteful. We relished the MO Cuisine and excellent collection of Drinks. Souvenir shop in the resort offers very good collection of high quality T Shirts, Dresses and Handcrafts at reasonable prices. Staff is very hospitable and they ensured our stay at resort was extremely good. They are one of the best I have seen around all Indian resorts. Last but not the least, the three German Shepards at the resort are very friendly. It was so good to see them playing around. I highly recommend Bandhav Vilas to both Family and Friend groups for both Safari visits and get togethers. Best time Toto visit Bandavgarh is between November and May. Overall, a great experience. That a lot to Bandhav Vilas.

Bandhav Vilas is a very well kept modern and clean facility, and very comfortable. Great rooms with ambience of a jungle. Excellent, caring management and staff ( Vijay Parwar, Deepak, Upadhaya ji , and everybody else were exceptional), providing personalised service to the guests. Amazing food with local dishes (if requested). Jungle Safari organised by them is too good. Our guide (Munnu) was amazing. Stay at Bandhav Vilas was truly exceptional and enjoyable.

Had visited the beautiful jungles of bandhavgarh in early Nov-21 and we are so happy that we booked our accomodation in Bandhav Vilas ! Almost everything about the resort is top notch : The Rooms are one of the biggest i have seen in wildlife resorts, The Evening High Tea and entertainment activities like Wildlife Documentary, Tribal Dance & Born Fire was a great experience. The food served was tasty and customized to suit the kids palate & taste. Safari Vehicle, driver and other facilities provided by the resort were at par with any top end resort . Overall the experience was great and a superb value for money as i have witness similar experiences in only top end resorts where room charges are a bomb !, but at Bandhav Vilas you are assured of this similar experience at Half the Cost than a top end resort. Special thanks to the Manager Vijay and his able team led by Deepak for a wonderful experience and the very very special Bush Diner. Improvement Feedback : They should have some proactive information displayed and shared about Nature Walk, Organic garden walk and Food Demonstrations so that all guests are well informed about the same and can avail the same as per need.

Located in the midst of the forest, the resort is well equipped with all the luxurious amenities, along with the serenity of nature. The rooms, the ambiance, food, and most importantly the hospitality is nothing less than the best. All staff members go the extra mile to ensure the comfort and demands of the visitors. Had one of the most enjoyable and memorable trips ever. Highly recommendable.

Bad & Rude Staff Behaviour ..!! The property is very nice in terms of room and location but the service quality and staff behaviour at the front desk was extremely bad and rude. The service was not good at all and all due to the reception and front desk staff as the service boy can only follow orders. The non veg food was pathetic and full of red chilly powder “Laal Mirchi” though the veg food was okay. The manager and subordinates had no hospitality courtesy and were not ready to listen to any feedback given to them instead they were rude and defensive about how hotel works as if we never stayed in a hotel and to be specific I am travel freak. Very upset with the hotel staff and service .. won’t recommend anyone to stay there if they are looking for good service.

We are really very sorry to know that you had such an unpleasant stay with us. We appreciate your feedback on our food, and especially your comments about our staff’s behavior. We will definitely look into both matter and follow seriously with our team. However it would be appropriate to assert that front office cannot waive off the bill and has to charge as per agreed rate and for the extra services availed. Also to state that buffet meals were served to all the guests staying with us during the same period and we did not have any complaint most ever for the food and services. Also we would have appreciated if any disliking of the food was brought to our notice at that time only and we would have gladly served extra food apart from the buffet as per your taste. howsoever we are again sorry for no living up to your expectation and would look forward to have you back at Bandhav Vilas and see you go back happily.

Our first impression was very good because room size and amenities were very good. I rarely write negative reviews because I understand that it can negatively impacts any property business which I don't want to do as a travel lover. Food was pathetic and staff behaviour was very disappointing. They were rude and did not have a common sense how to talk to your guests. I will not recommended this hotel for any family because for me it was a embarrassment in front of my family how they talked to us.

I spent 3 days at Bandhav Vilas from April 15th to April 18th 2021. In spite of covid contraints, I had a wonderful stay. The 14 ha domain is beautiful, the 20 villas are big and confortable with two bathrooms (one inside, the other outside), food is very good. Jitender, the General Manager of the domain was fantastic, very friendly and helpful. I also made 6 great safaris with Ram, friendly and outstanding naturalist. I could see many tigers and learnt many things about them (and other animals). All the staff is nice. Bandhav Vilas is also very close to Tala entrance. I can only recommend Bandhav Vila. 100%! You won't regret it. Eric C. (France)
