“Unforgettable stay”

Everything was perfect: the director and staff were charming, attentive and efficient, we had a nice and comfortable room in a beautiful setting with a large terrace in the trees, food was good and plentiful.

Thanks to Karan the naturalist who went with us during our safaris we saw 2 tigers in the Bandhavgarh reserve. Tree House if a magical and cozy place that stands out from more traditional hotels.
