High in the Vindya Hills and amidst the four hills of the Bandhavgarh National Park lies Mahua Kothi, a quaint and rustic bolthole with the charm of a country house and the luxury of a palace. With inspiration for the hotel taken from the Madhuca Indica (butter tree), Mahua Kothi is at the centre of a unique and delightful experience, much like the white flowers of the butter tree that take centre stage during traditional festivals.
Spread out over 40 acre grounds, Mahua Kothi blends into the natural surroundings of the Bandhavgarh Nation Park in Northern India. In the perfect location to try your luck at spotting the infamous tiger, this luxury hotel is also close to the hustle and bustle of Delhi.
With just twelve individual cottages, each room is complete with traditional touches. From the tapered hand finished walls, to the handmade pottery roof tiles, you will be surrounded by local charm and exquisite ambience that will suit you perfectly as you disembark from your dusty safari.
Why we like it
Mahua Kothi is so close to the tiger sanctuary, you’ll be in the best position to spot these magnificent creatures and if the 4×4 isn’t adventurous enough for you, why not hop on the back of an elephant for a safari with a difference? If you start to feel peckish, enjoy a picnic by a watering hole to combine tantalising food with beautiful, serene surroundings.
