We stayed at The Wildflower Resort in Bandhavgarh tiger reserve. The location of this resort is just amazing. It is built in buffer zone of the tiger reserve and borders the core area of Tala. It was a wonderful experience to listen to alarm calls of deer while sitting at the bonfire hut (aptly named as tiger's torch). The resort has a feel of a rustic jungle lodge. The restaurant had a huge fireplace and tiled roof, perfect ambiance. Our room was equally good. Large rooms with windows opening to the forest, fantastic decor, very comfortable beds, tiger paintings and, a tv as well.
The staff is very humble and took very good care of us. We could see that they had to cover long distances for room service or serving at swimming pool or at the bonfire and yes, the observation tower (they call it a maachan) but wherever we were, they served with a smile. The variety was a bit limited but great food. Thumbs up to their chef, food was yummy.
