“Outstanding!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

Treehousehideaway is nothing short of brilliant. It has five treehouses and each treehouse is named after the tree it is perched on. Ours was Mahua Tree and it had a nice view of the nearby waterhole which is frequented by animals to quench their thirst. The rooms are stylishly designed with a conspicuous effort to give a rustic feel to everything. Keeping with its theme, there is no television inside the treehouse. Also, each treehouse is quite far from the other one providing complete privacy.

Apart from treehouses, resort has a main dining area which also lodges a bar and a library. There is a separate area for bonfire also.

Food served is limited in variety but great in taste. It is primarily Indian but includes one-two dish of other cuisines too to suit different palates.

But what blew me off the feet, was the service of the resort. It was outstanding. Staff is extremely considerate to the needs of their guests be it wake-up calls, providing hot water bottles & blankets for morning safaris, waiting with refreshments after safaris to charge-up their guests, leaving the guests back to their treehouses in the night and the list goes on.

We visited for our anniversary and they made our special occasion even more special.

I highly recommend this place to those who are looking for a break from traditional hotels for staying.

We never thought we would be staying in Tree House. Our plan to Tadoba could not happen and we felt the next option was Bandhavgarh as we ad already booked in Pench. We were not sure of accomadation being holiday season. I took a chance in calling up their Delhi office. Neeti was very helpful and confirmed availability at both Kings Lodge - sister property - and Tree House.

We chose Tree House and what a memorable experience it turned out to be!!

To start with we liked the concept. This is truly a "Hide away" and not a typical "resort". It is exclusive. There are only five.

The tree houses are beautifully located under huge banyan trees and merges into the contours of the tree very well. Rooms are very spacious and well designed. The balcony or sit out is the place where you can spend hours looking at the birds during the day and stars at night. The concept is straight out of the forest lodges of Africa - rustic but nice. Built totally of wood, it gives you the feeling that you you are living in the forest. Infact, you do as the place is nothing but forest and part of the teroritoy of a tigress!!

If you are a birder, you will have a feast. The pond within the property is lovely with many water birds.

The lounge and dining hall is again very elegant and built under a huge tree.
The food is excellent and staff very helpful and courteous - wheter they are bearers or executives. Thanks to Erwin who is managing this place.
A word of appreciation to the naturalists - Kshitij - in our case who was very knowledgeable and knew the frest very well.

Overall, a fabulous experience and i have no hesitation in recommending the place.

Posiibly one of the best wild life "Lodges" - i hate to call it resort in the country.

Keep up the good work folks - please do not increase the number of tree houses and clutter it - and wish you all a very happy 2012!!

Op een lange reis door India hadden we onze "romantische" accomodatie gekozen in Bandhavgarh, en dat was de beste keus die we hadden kunnen maken, want wat een fantastische lodge!

De Lodge geeft het echte gevoel van de wilderness. Wij verbleven in de Mahua Tree House, waar we later achter kwamen dat vooral de apen (Langur's) net zo gek op waren als wij. Dat kwam vooral omdat de Mahua boom volop in bloei was en de vruchten blijkbaar zorgen voor heel wat praktijken voor de, met soms tientallen tegelijk, apen. Wow! Je mag ze dan overal zien, maar wij vonden dit een leuke toevoeging aan het jungle gevoel.

De Lodge zelf is geweldig. Verwacht niet de 5 star luxe, maar wel een prachtig en kleinschalig boutique resort met alles wat je nodig hebt. Grote kamer met comfortabale meubels, een groot king-size bed, volledige badkamer en een groot terras met geweldige uitzichten op het bos. Echt zo'n exclusief gevoel om daar dan te zitten in je boomhut! De Housekeeping was top-notch! Elke keer als wij onze kamer weer inkwamen was het alsof je er voor de eerste keer kwam, en dat dan ook nog eens midden in de Jungle.

Het eten was simpel, maar heerlijk! Je kan zien dat er veel tijd wordt besteed aan natuurlijke ingredienten en voldoende variatie. Elke keer werd er weer wat anders geserveerd. Vooral de pre-dinner snacks bij het haardvuur deden het goed.

En ja.....we hebben 3 tijgers gezien! De highlight echter was een sloth bear, die we vanuit onze boomhut recht onder ons zagen lopen!

Kortom, wij hebben echt een fantastisch verblijf gehad. Juist omdat de lodge zo klein is heb je echt het 1 op 1 gevoel wat je in vele grotere lodges / hotels vaak mist! Wat ons betreft absoluut de beste keus in Bandhavgarh! Als je op zoek bent naar een afgelegen natuurlijke locatie, midden in de Jungle met een rustieke en comfortabele look, dan is dit wat ons betreft een echte aanrader

Room Tip: Alle kamers zijn relatief ver van elkaar af. Onze kamer was vlakbij een water-hole. Je kan vanuit je...

loved the place, the people, the atmosphere.
treehouse rooms are an excellent concept, when you look outside the windows it gives the feel of being in midair detached from everything else.
hospitality was amazing.
rooms were cleaned whenever we went out !!
if you are a couple, do go for the candlelight dinner on the machan.
few electrical glitches (just thats why one less rating for the rooms), but don't let them dampen your spirits !! Go for the Treehouse :)

Great lodge outside of Bandhavgarh Park. We were not sure what to expext but our treehouse had all of the amenities of a normal hotel room but was located 12 feet up a tree. The food and service where great. We got to try a lot of Indian dishes that we would not have tried because each meal would consist of 5 differnt types of India cooking.The guide was helpful and informative. Of course a large part of our trip to this park was for the Tigers. Aparantly they are pretty difficult to see in the early part of the season. For us it came down to the last hour of our last drive. This was accomplished through the skills of our guide and some luck. The Hotel was also helpful with our transfers to and from Khajuraho which was a 5 hour drive. Probably the best way to get to this hotel.
