Perhaps I'm too harsh, but given that this was the most expensive of the hotels we stayed in India (by far!) it by no means lived up to expections.
For a start the room (a luxury tent, technically) was no cleaner than anywhere else and the room was not made up during our 2 night stay. Amenities were good with TV, fridge, relatively inefficient AC but a perfecty adequate fan, then some portaloo-type bathroom installations. The room would have probably been better if the shower didn't overflow every time and flood the 'bathroom area'. Looking at the curtains that separate the 'bedroom area' it certainly wasn't the first time this problem arose and as we were only staying 2 nights we didn't pursue it.
Breakfast was fine - as expected, a buffet affair, full of tour groups, nothing special.
Maybe it's the tour group atmosphere that sucks the life and the character out of this place? And doubles the price of beer??
Redeeming features: the beautiful cenotaphs just behind the hotel that were visible throughout the hotel complex. Swimming & relaxing at the pool.
I suspect there are better value options in beautiful Orchha, closer to the main attractions, but it's a small, peaceful village and this place is OK.
