We were a large group and stayed here for 3 nights. The lodge represents everything that one would want from a luxurious stay. The rooms were very spacious and had all the amenities one would expect in a luxury experiential hotel such as this. The best part about the lodge is their team, lead by Anshuman and Priyam. Every member of their team from Akshay to Jamuna went over and beyond to ensure that everyone was well taken care of. Would highly recommend staying here when in Bandhavgarh.
" A Great Gateway to Tiger Country "
Starting from a thoughtful note and refreshments placed in the car from Jabalpur to the lodge (much needed for 4 masked travelers after a long day!) to the committed and attentive service in every aspect of the lodge, Samode doesn’t fail to disappoint. Priyam and Anshuman were very gracious hosts who made sure we were well looked after. Every safety and hygiene protocol was in place in the entire property and not once did we feel unsafe be it in the dining area or in the rooms. The management has put much thought and effort into sanitizing everything without being too intrusive. The rooms are grand and spacious and very tastefully done. Each meal in Samode was a culinary delight that induced a pleasant food coma!! Dinners were thoughtfully planned in a new setting every night with regional cuisines served in elegant thalis. The staff graciously reappear from nowhere to serve seconds in a perfectly timed manner. Service fit for royalty! The game drives with Anshuman were entertaining, to say the least. We had 2 wonderful tiger sightings in 6 drives. His knowledge of the park and beyond is immense. Ask him any question and he can answer in a flash without any reference, right from the flora and fauna to photography tips and to the workings of the forest. He has a knack for making even a quiet forest outing special. Priyam and Anshuman along with their team in Samode are committed to giving you a holistic experience be it in the lodge or in the game drives. I would recommend Samode for the discerning safari-goer and for the traveler looking for just a relaxing break. One can look forward to being treated like royalty.
Epitome of jungle luxury
We stayed at Samode Bandhavgarh from 19th to 21st Jan 2021 with our entire family. The rooms are all one can ask for in a jungle. The hospitality and the service by the staff was great. Every request was taken care of within minutes. The food was very good and the chef treated us with delicacies worth remembering. On demand and healthy food for kids was also available. Would definitely recommend and stay there again on my next visit.
Absolutely amazing experience
Bandhavgarh and Samode Safari Lodge will always be one of our most favourite vacations. First, the lodge is easily one of the best we have stayed at - it is truly luxurious, very tastefully done up villas which are huge and so comfortable. Anshuman and Priyam are such gracious hosts and their staff out of their way to please - Jamuna in particular was so kind and has such a fantastic service mindset. Every need is anticipated and met - food is outstanding and the locations for each dinner which varies every night is truly special and unique. They took every precaution there was to ensure we never felt nervous - sanitizers, temperature check etc. Anshuman is a walking encyclopedia in the forest - his intuition as a naturalist is absolutely mind-blowing. We had amazing sights of tigers, leopard and so many other animals / birds all thanks to him. He also showed us a family of flying squirrels which was a first for us. We had the time of our life spending 4 nights (which always flies by way too fast) and one of the highlights was to do the first ever hot air balloon ride in a jungle in India which was a brilliant experience by itself. We were totally pampered at the lodge and we cant wait to go back - thanks so much Anshuman and Priyam for making our stay so special and memorable! Best, The Bettadapurs
Perfect safari gataway
Had a brilliant time for 3 nights. Outstanding culinary experience. - way beyond expectation for a luxury lodge. Naturalist Akshaya was helpful, knowledgeable and curious. Had a perfect safari ride with couple of sightings. The service, hospitality and staff there were always on their toes to gives us a delightful experience. The lodge is tastefully done with all amenities being met. Only Jio works and in some areas. Each dinner is a different experience and location. Our last night dinner was an outstanding experience. The only thing if I could have wished more was - some nature trail / walk experience And some more variety of Alchohol.
