Samode Safari Lodge is a wonderfully luxurious place to stay at Bandhavgarh National Park. Located right by the new, virtually unused entrance to the park, it is built on the site of the former Anant Van. The lodge is situated in 11 acres of open grassland and farmland with a charming village and tree nursery to explore, just a short stroll away. The lodge comprises several sophisticated suites and villas. Each has open air and covered bathrooms as well as private terraces, large bedrooms and sitting rooms, and a sundeck. There is a sumptuous spa to ease muscles strained from trundling around in the jungle and there is a strong emphasis on sustainable tourism and the environment. The adjoining villages of Mardari and Gohori are the inspiration for the architectural language of the Lodge. The walls are constructed with the traditional hand moulded bricks and all building material has been locally procured. The Lodge also uses solar energy and does extensive rainwater harvesting to recharge ground water levels.
Samode Safari Lodge has a necklace of private villas strung around the main lodge building. Each villa has an elegant living area with a spacious lounge, a bedroom with a modern ensuite bath, a dressing area, a unique open-air bath court and a private verandah with a view.
Dining is an indulgent treat and a daily surprise – different menu, different venue – either indoors or al fresco. Enjoy gourmet dining at the main restaurant, have barbecues around a campfire, eat at a table set for you out in the bushes, snack on long lazy poolside meals, or dine romantically in the privacy of your own villa. Exciting cuisine and excellent wines await you. The picnics are a special treat – be prepared for thoughtful service under the sky and the trees – the very air adding flavor to your food.
Samode Safari Lodge offers a choice of activities. Take a dip in the heated open air swimming pool, work out in the well-equipped gymnasium, jog along the trails near the lodge, go for nature walks, cycle or visit mardari village. A fully equipped spa allows you to combine your wildlife experience with the therapeutic benefits of a modern spa.
