On the border of Bandhavgarh National Park, amidst 21 acres of forest, lies the picturesque Tree House Hideaway.
This small, and intimate lodge has five treehouse rooms, named after the trees in which they are constructed around. Each unique treehouse has been built using local materials, and features en suite facilities with hot and cold water, air-conditioning, a minibar, mosquito nets, a living area with writing desk and chair, and a private balcony with loungers.
The communal area spreads across two levels, and is built around an impressive century-old mahua tree. On the ground floor is a relaxing dining room, while on the upper floor, there is a bar and lounge area known as ‘The Watering Hole’ where, as the name suggests, there is a view of a nearby watering hole. Lodge residents, including birds, reptiles and mammals, are frequently spotted.
During a stay at the Tree House Hideaway, a range of activities are on offer including jeep safaris into Bandhavgarh National Park - which is known for its high density of tigers - as well as cycling, picnics in the park’s periphery, village visits and craft workshops with local artisans and bamboo weavers.
