No doubt the safaris were amazing but being at Bagh Tola was an experience in itself. Have enjoyed every minute of it right from my morning cup of tea to my wine by the bonfire. Your boys waving at us by the gate greeting us was the icing on the cake. We finally got to take Sanju bhaiyya if not more famous than the tigers😜 to take us for our last safari ride and that made us realise why he is so sought after. Yash made our trip interesting with all his trivia and Tony and the staff made sure our stay was comfortable. Thank you once again !

It took us rather long to reach the resort but once we got there we were just blown away. The resort is beautiful very well kept and everything from the rooms the staff and the food was impeccable. A big shout out to their natureologist @yash_mane and the resort manager Tony. They surely know how to make one feel at home. Everything was just perfect 10/10 Highly recomended

This place is fabulous! The staff is so caring and always in their toes. They have never learnt to say no. They are always smiling and happy to help. Special thanks to the Manager Tony, and to his team (Yash, Ache Lal and others) for making our trip so fantastic

If the Bandhavgarh Safari becons you, this quaint and homely hotel ought to be your preferred choice for its top quality service, homely food and professional approach. Tony who manages the place needs more than 5 stars for his efforts. Thanks for a memorable vacation guys, keep doing the great work.

Stayed here during Diwali 2023. Staff, let by Manager Tony is amazing, going the extra mile to make every request is taken care of. The naturalist Yash is very knowledgeable and makes the safaris interesting.

Dear Eric, Joy and the entire Bagh Tola team, thank you so much for making our return to kanha a special one. Coming here is like visiting family and seeing tigers at last in kanha was extra wonderful. We will never forget our time here with you in kanha.

I wish you both Eric and Joy all the best. You are both wonderful people, the food was outstanding, as was the service.

Found this hotel while browsing for kanha Tourism, and found this beautiful and nice establishment.

My initial apprehension was all gone the moment I stepped here.

Well trained staffs, cozy rooms and tasty food all made our holiday memorable. Bless Eric and Joy for their passion of making tourist so comfortable in this place. Would love to visit again with family and friends.

We could not have asked for a better stay at Bagh Tola, Eric, Joy and the staffs are absolutely wonderful. Not only are they warm and hospitable, but they felt like family!
Looked after all of us and especially the children! Every request and needs was taken care of with a smile!
The food was delicious, felt like home! Special care was taken to see that the menu was diverse. The desserts were yummy! Thank you Joy!
This property is so lovely! Perfect for a group stay! Also so clean and neat and comfortable!

We had a wonderful stay and will definitely recommend to friends and family back home!
We can’t wait to be back in the land of the Tigers!

The hotel is small, charming and dedicated to people who like safaris. Eric and Joy, the managers, are charming.The rooms are very good, clean, big and with everything you need. Outside there is an area with benches where you can lie down, read a book, have a drink and warm yourself with a small bonfire.
This is not a place to party. It is a place to do safaris, return to the hotel, rest and have a nice dinner. The food is very good. Eric and Joy sit at the table. You talk, you eat and you feel like you're at home. I am a nature lover. I have done safaris around the world. A hotel like this is exactly what I am looking for in these situations. In addition, Samnapur, the village where the hotel is located, is a quiet place where you can take a walk and see the quiet life of its inhabitants. 100% recommendable.
By the way, the game drive in Kanha National Park is wonderful!

Could not have asked for a better family vacation.
We travelled with our 3 kids (12/9/9) and they just didn’t want to leave.
From the moment we entered, the welcome the welcome that we got from the hotel staff, I just knew that this was going to be an awesome trip and I had made the right choice in choosing Bhag Tola.
I’ll keep my review short - the accommodation, the rooms, the cleanliness, the service, the bathrooms, the air conditioning, the ambience, the way they arrangements for the safaris were made… the whole damn thing……. Every thing was perfect !!!!
A trip I will never forget, and a place I will definitely go back to.
Talk about service with a smile - this defines it. Akshay the manager, hats off to you - you’ll really made this memory for us .

The only negative point, which the management needs to look into - the sleep quality. The pillows were just way too hard… I usually travel with my own pillow - but that fussy me…
Coming back to the crux - a memory for life
Thank you Bagh Tola !

An excellent place to unwind from the daily hustle bustle of city life ......set in the midst of a village background the location is just breath taking with nature all around .
I would recommend this to those who want to reset their mind and soul .

The place is run by a couple with their many local helping hands and are very sweet and accommodating and take care of you like family.

Dear Akshay,

Thank you so much for all that you and your team have done to make this trip one to remember forever. It has truly been an amazing experience from the minute we stepped into the lodge.

I would love to extend this small token of gratitude to you and to the Bagh Tola team, especially Sanjay Ji the chef and Achchelal Ji -without you guys it would’ve been impossible to make this everlasting memory with someone dearest to me. Words cannot describe how thankful and happy I am. Hoping to visit again very very soon!

I travelled with my family and friends and had an outstanding experience with Bagh Tola - from the reservations, to arrival, accommodation and food.
Kaustubh is a fantastic manager - made us feel absolutely at home.
Safaris were arranged and executed like clockwork.
Highly recommend this property

Words fall short when I begin to pen down my experience and feelings about my stay here. The reality strikes now and made me realize that we are leaving this place. This place is not a resort, not a hotel nothing like it. This place is a HOME. Beautifully created by the wonderful prople Eric and Joy. Forget the Tiger sighting these two people Eric and Joy will attach you with themselves as if you are their own family. Their warmth is impeccable and capturing. I am sad to leave this place because for two days it was my HOME. Such feeling this place generates in you. Coming to the safari and jungle then there is no better person to accompany than Eric . His 35+ years of experience clearly shows, conversation with him are out of the world, very knowledgable and informative.

My overall experience was out of this world, one of the best I have ever experienced. Amazing stay, amazing food, amazing hospitality, impeccably clean room and property and the warmth and home stay. These guys out of the way make you feel at home. And Joy you are the BEST BAKER IN THIS WORLD. We loved it more because of the love you bake it with and feed us. Your staff is amazing and humble. KUDOS TO YOU ALL.

Thank you for everything. I am sad to leave this OTHER HOME of mine.

Eric and Joy have created a heaven of comfort, warmth and homely hospitality in the middle of the jungle. The rooms are spacious clean, airy and impeccably large. nothing is too much for the service-10 staff + Eric and Joy who make everything happen seamless. Gluten free breakfast to home made banana cake to mutton curry. Eric’s knowledge and love for nature is a gift to love on safari drives. He has patience and curiosity. Kanha is magical forest with a unique topography. We enjoyed the forest and saw tigers, but blent of other flora and fauna. Bagh Tola is the best of Indian Hospitality. The beauty of Indian forest and amazing food. Can’t recommend it highly enough!

Sending  good vibes always!!!

We had the most wonderful, homely stay. Eric was outstanding, he not only led us to spotting a tiger, it was an emersive safari experience. Our children's first safari turned out to be a super success. The amazing service of the staff and Eric and Joys lovely warm welcome into the beautiful property, treating us like their own was an amazing and comfortable experience.

We will be back again with more friends.
