5 Star Luxury Taj Mahua Kothi Hotel Package in Bandhavgarh National Park

5 Star Luxury Taj  Mahua Kothi Hotel Package in Bandhavgarh National Park

Taj  Mahua Kothi,  Bandhavgarh N.P

Nestled in the vicinity of the breathtaking Bandhavgarh National Park is the first of the Taj Safaris Lodges. The name Mahua Kothi draws inspiration from one of India’s most beautiful trees, the Madhuca Indica, or as it is commonly known, the Mahua or butter tree. Its luscious off-white flowers take centre-stage in many Indian festive rituals, and here, at Mahua Kothi, it is at the centre of many a unique and delightful experience. The lodge sprawls over the 40 acre grounds, around the renowned erstwhile tented camp, Churhat Kothi, the accommodation and facilities of the lodge blend charmingly into the quaint and rustic surroundings.

Mahua Kothi is the first of five Lodges that, in true Taj style, break new ground in the Indian tourism industry. Offering a never-before-experienced Indian wildlife circuit, replete with both adventure and – unlike any safari experience in the country so far – impeccable service and lush luxury.

Walk in to the cosily traditional guest area, with high ceilings, terracotta tiles, overhead fans, a fireplace, huge windows with window seats, beaten Bastar metal and hand-blown glassware. Freshen up in the Comings & Goings room. Step into the open kitchen that lets you in on the simple joys of butter being churned, masala being hand-ground, garden-fresh vegetables being chopped with sickles and rotis being expertly made on a chulha. Catch the jungle breeze out on the 600 sq. ft. verandah, browse leisurely through the Safari Shop, idle away the hours at the library or take a dip in the swimming pool.

When you’re ready to settle in, make your way through a private courtyard, with its shaded seating, to one of the twelve charming cottage suites, called Kutiyas. Built to replicate the vernacular style of Central India, affectionately known as MP chic, each is filled with quaint local touches. Wooden shutters, tapered hand-finished walls, stone floors, open rafters with roughly-hewn beams, handmade pottery roof tiles, rust and burnt orange local textile furnishings. Shower off your journey in the en-suite bathroom, pamper yourself with hand-blended, all-natural, guest amenities from the Taj Spa, relax with a game of marbles or Chaupad or indulge in an in-room Ayurvedic massage.

There was a place I saw in a television documentary about threatened tigers.
It was in India and the tigers swam in the pools there, around the ruins of a beautiful ancient temple.
Do you know where this is?(Bandhavgarh National Park )
