Samode was featured by the Daily Telegraph as one of The World’s Best 50 Honeymoon hotel destinations, and it’s easy to see why. The lodge offers luxury and comfort a stone’s throw from the remarkable Bandhavgarh National Park, which is famed for its high number of tiger.
Samode has a homely, welcoming feel, with a wooden floor, Indian decor, two fireplaces, and squashy sofas to lounge on as you take in the spectacular views of the park. There is also a viewing deck, which is the perfect spot to sit while you soak in the beauty of Bandhavgarh.
Guests can stay in a selection of private villas near to the main lodge building.
Each one has its own spacious lounge and tasteful decor that includes Indian art, wooden furniture, an en suite bathroom with an open air bath, as well as a private veranda with a sweeping view across the park. Safari options include a morning and evening game drive in the company of a guide and a local tracker who can teach you about the fascinating local wildlife. After your safari you can always take a refreshing dip in the lodge’s swimming pool, head to the gym, or visit Mardari village.
