The Resort
 

The Monsoon Forest is a unique indigenously styled luxury eco-resort spread over ten acres of grasslands, bamboo thickets and generously canopied trees with a delightful jungle ambience. The resort has a view of the Bandhavgarh National Park, just a few km away, and makes an ideal base to explore the magnificent forest and its wild life, the tribal areas and the villages around it. The resort has a serene and calm ambience for communion with nature and birdwatching, and eco-friendly features. The resort is imaginatively designed drawing inspiration from the earthy central Indian mud houses that exist in the vicinity of Bandhavgarh, while at the same time offering air conditioned tents and cottage that are equipped with modern facilities.

 
Accommodation
 

Set under the shade of the glorious Mahua flowering trees, Monsoon Forest offers six beautifully crafted luxury tents and six nests (cottages). Surrounded by the grasslands, the accommodations are enclosed by a mud-brick wall, ensuring absolute privacy.

The concept is to offer the ambience of a jungle camp or village without compromising on the modern amenities, comforts and luxury required by a contemporary traveler.

Each luxury tent is air-conditioned and has a generous living space inside, with large rope-drawn windows, wooden floors, custom-built furniture and a modern en suite bathroom. Inspired by the design of bird’s nests, these quaint eco-lodges merge into the beautiful grasslands that surround them. They will have all the modern hotel room amenities, air conditioning and en suite washroom facilities. Eclectic handcrafted furniture and furnishings add to their rustic charm. Guests can also enjoy a private meal in the intimacy of the nests.

The wide verandas are like an oasis where you can unwind to enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest in solitude.

 
Food and Beverages
 

The resort specializes in home style food focusing largely on local produce and home-grown organic vegetables. Nutritionally balanced wholesome meals, fresh fruit juices and smoothies will help you detox your mind, body and soul. Excellent cooks and traditional local recipes are part of  our repertoire but the cooks will work to meet the palate of every guest. Whether it is a Central Indian curry or a pasta preparation, they can personalize the taste to your satisfaction. We also entertain requests for a safari breakfast for those going for wildlife viewing or an intimate private dinner on the guest’s veranda.
You can even enjoy ‘satvik’ soulful food in any of our dinning areas

Baithak

The essence of Monsoon forest is reflected in the main dining lodge or the Baithak, which is also the informal reception and sitting area. The panoramic views provide an intimate introduction to the vast grasslands and forests of Bandhavgarh. As you recline in an armchair, you may spot an interesting bird or see a wild boar wandering about in the grassland.

The Baithak is also a great place to interact with our naturalists and fellow wildlife enthusiasts over a freshly brewed cup of tea or homemade dinner. It also houses the Monsoon Forest art gallery and a library where we have some of the best wildlife and tribal art, photographs, books and other collectibles

Robin’s nest

Having a meal at Robin’s nest, is in itself a unique dining experience. As the name suggests, this dining area has been set up under the Mahua tree where we have a pair of Robins nesting. The beauty of this dining area is its unparallel view across the forest. Surrounded by vast open grasslands, experience the magic of eating under the sun, open sky and stars combining with the sights and sounds of various birds and animal calls. This dining area can comfortably accommodate 40 guests

Machan Dinning

As the name suggests, this dining area gives you the feeling of eating out in the wilderness. You can chose to have a private intimate meal at the Machan. It has been designed such that it gives an opportunity to survey the forest from a vantage point. Guests can even stake out for the night to get an unforgettable forest experience. You will have to do a prior booking for this special venue, which can accommodate maximum of 4 guests.
