“Value for money and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2011

We spend some time in the resort in December 2011; it is well located close to the Mandu attraction. The resort is clean and comfortable and located in a picture perfect green environment. The restaurant has decent Indian food.

The resort can do controlling the Langur’s who frequent the lake facing rooms.

Room Tip: Look out for the Black Langurs in the water facing rooms

Your options in Mandu are very limited and this may be the best one. The only nice rooms are the "AC Tents".... there are only a few of these (they were built less than a year ago and are clean, and nicely furnished). The regular AC rooms are the worst and are quite run-down and dirty. The cheaper non-AC rooms are actually nicer than the AC rooms, though still run-down and dirty. The location of the "resort" is pleasant and the food in the restaurant was ok. Excluding the AC Tents, the rooms in general aren't much better than a typical backpacker-type hotel in India. Despite the overall dumpiness, this is probably the best option for a hotel in Mandu.

We went to Mandu in December, 2010. As Mandu is not so big place so were worried about food and our stay. We got our booking done well before time.

Malwa resort is perfectly located with all the visiting places very near. I will give 5/5 to this hotel for food. We had my mother in law with us, she doesn't eat onion(not even in daal sbzi). We talked to kitchen staff if they can arrange food without onion for us. They prepared the food without onion for us, the way we wanted. Also, they allowed us to enter their kitchen and get the food prepared as per our choice. Must sayy!! Kitchen was very very much clean.

Hotel is having a swimming pool and a very beatiful garden. In the morning we went for walk to the nearby lake and echo point.

I stayed in October for 2 nights in the Malwa Resort. The location is excellent - overlooking a valley with a large lake at the back. I took air-cooler rooms as the a/c ones were not available. The rooms were reasonably clean and well maintained, the staff polite and service good. Simple, tasty North India fare - both veg and non-veg is served in their restaurant. Even the booking is conveniently done online via the MP tourism web site. All in all - a comfortable stay in a great location.

At the back, a walkway leads you onto the lake - and is a great place for an early morning sunrise and walk. The view over the lake - is serenity: here and there you see a ruin and the odd Baobab tree! The silence and calm is a great experience! The garden at the rear, with a jhoola (swing) and lots of trees - is a great place for your morning tea. Mind the monkeys though!

The area nearby is also littered with wonderful ruins - and is best explored on foot. Don't miss the lesser known ones such as Darya Khan's tomb Mallik Mugit's mosque and Dai ka Mahal - all nearby and best done early morning or late evening after you've seen the main attractions of Mandu.

I'd definitely recommend this place over the similarly named "Malwa Retreat" - though further away from the town. Great job MP Tourism!

This is a nice, peaceful place to stay when visiting Mandu. It is about 3km to the center of town. I had room/cottage 118 which has a uninterrupted view of the lake. Rooms 114 and 116 also have good, direct lake views. You can request a table and chairs to use on your patio, along with room service. Tip well, as room service is not normally offered. The room had good a/c, a flat screen TV and a mini-fridge. The power is a bit erratic so it might be best not to order meat in the restaurant, even though the kitchen has its own generator. Otherwise, the food in the restaurant is very good. This is a well-run hotel, with good management. It is a restful, safe, friendly place to stay.
