Mahua Kothi - An experience etched forever
Room / Cottage - We had 3 cottages . Each cottage was thoughtfully laid out blending aesthetics with convenience and a care for the environs. From the amenities in the room to the Bed and Bath accessories and space, it was magnificent. The upkeep of the room too was amazing. Everytime we stepped out of the room, albeit for a few hours only, we came back to a sparkling clean room! Truly amazing. Food - Even in a group of 6, we had a diversity of tastes. There were folks who cannot handle spice, folks who do not like chinese food, kiddos who only wanted pizzas and pancakes and I who wanted some heat in my food - Chef Sannat understood and he got the meals right from the first one ! I was extremely touched by the fact that for every meal, he ensured that there was a little bowl of spicy chutney or a spicy sauce! Thank you Chef! Rajkumar - So Rajkumar was assigned to this rather eccentric bunch as the Butler and despite all our eccentricites etc. I never once saw him flustered or irritated. My son, who is usually shy, became pals with him within a few hours and boy did Rajkumar indulge him! He truly made our stay absolutely fabulous. Thank you Rajkumar! Karun - So Taj Safari properties have their own naturalist who are assigned to you for the safaris. We had 3 safaris and it was really nice to have continuity in those sojourns. Karun was simply fabulous - his knowledge of the park and of the Tigers' and their patterns was outstanding. He ensured that we had truly fabulous sightings and those are in my mind forever. What I really liked about Karun was that he was absolutely dedicated to ensuring that we have successful safaris. Thanks a ton Karun! At the end, while we interacted largely with Rajkumar, Sannat and Karun, it takes a village to create that kind of awesome experience. A Big Thank You to all the people behind the scenes !
Would love to come back again.
Stay for one night, loved the stay! ‘keshu’ was super helpful. The chefs served amazing food , lovely preparation. People are warm and courteous and ready to do anything to put a smile on your face. Some places of improvement: 1. on arrival , we were stopped and made wait outside the property by the guard due to some confusion of our reservation. We waited out the property for about 10-15 mins. Super negative Taj arrival experience till date. Not acceptable. 2. Bathtub drain was broken due to which we were not able to enjoy it.
A nice surprise in Bandhavgarh
We absolutely loved this place! Great tiger sightings and the hotel offered excellent accommodations with impeccable service, top notch food and beautiful decor. Some things I really loved were the bath awaiting after the evening safari, the staff welcoming us in the driveway, and the different locations of dinner around the property. I would stay here again or at any Taj property - wonderful experience!
Excellent.... superb..... worth it.....loved it
Superb place, beautifully done up, extremely clean, the staff makes sure your room and your ambience in never kept unattended, that was something I have never ever experienced, any time u leave the room, when u come back, the room is done up as good as new, it’s like a fairy who comes and does magic with her magic wand. The chef takes special care of our meals asking us our preference for each meal, it’s almost like a personal butler or chef making food specially for us.... food is good, place is good, safari experience is good.... nothing to pin point.... special thanx to Mr. Amit Singhvi who took care of our bookings and even arranged private safaris at the last minute for us..... and we got to enjoy 2 private safaris and one shared..... all thanx to him.... and plz do look out for Bhola bhaiya..he kept us entertained in our entire trip and took care of us very well..... thank u Bhola Bhiaya and he’s the one always with a big smile fulfilling all our demands..... even the naturalist Mr. Harsh and Mr. Karun were very good and thanx to them We saw 8 tigers in our 3 safaris and we had a beautiful sighting of a tigress and her cubs with Mr. Harsh.... over all I must say it was a wonderful 5 star experience....totally worth it👍🏻😊🙏🏻
Memorable jungle get away
Nestled in the raw jungles of Bandhavgarh National Park, Taj Mahua Kothi provides a unique nature experience that you can never forget. Each cottage is decorated with village theme and with amazing artifacts that gives every cottage a royal look from inside. There is a verandah outside every cottage that you can enjoy early morning or in the evening. It is a resort surrounded by trees and grass with amazing bird life. You wake up to hear the chirping of the birds. You get your morning tea and coffee delivered to your cottage. The food is absolutely delicious and served so many times in the day (of your choice) that you get spoiled! The staff are courteous, friendly and helpful all the time. The service standard is simply superb. There is no wifi or TV in the room that compels you to integrate with nature. Mobile usually works in the resort that helps you to keep in touch with outside world. There is a swimming pool that you can use as a family to refresh, particularly when it is hot. The main activity is jungle safari that you can take multiple times through different entrances and there is a night safari too. We saw tigers twice during our safaris, but were thrilled to see diversity of animals, vast jungles with mountains in the background. The safaris are long (almost 4 hours in the morning and 2.5 hours in the afternoon), but you will always want more of the safaris. I have done safaris in several other places in India, but Taj Mahua Kothi will remain entrenched in my memory for ever for the quality of cottage, top class service, delicious food and the natural environment that it provides to give you a real break from our busy life.
