The Hotels covered in this Itinerary are:
Oberoi Maidens / The Imperial
Wild Grass Resort
Kings Lodge / Mahua Kothi
Royal Tiger Resort / Banjar Tola


Maidens Hotel is one of Delhi's oldest hotels, built in the early 1900s, and has retained its colonial charm and architecture. Its spacious rooms with high ceilings are unique when compared to the box-sized rooms of modern hotels. Set amidst eight acres of lush gardens, shady trees and tennis courts, it escapes the noise of the main city, but remains within easy access to some of the most magnificent Mughal monuments, and famous shopping center Chandni Chowk with its quaint bazaars and meandering lanes.

Situated in the North Delhi residential area with big " Turn of the Century" bungalows and the bank of the river Yamuna on the east; close to the University of Delhi Campus. The hotel lies within walking distance of the main Interstate bus terminal. Late 19th century architectural elegance is reflected in the classical rooms and the elegant restaurants.


From the time The Imperial opened its doors in the 1930s, when India was beginning to write the last chapters of its saga on independence, there was little space in New Delhi for an Indo- British rubbing of shoulders. The Imperial provided such a space. Pandit Nehru, Mahatama Gandhi, Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Lord Mountbatten would meet at The Imperial to discuss the partition of India and creation of Pakistan.The Nehru family had a permanent suite here.

The Imperial is a fine confluence of a rich historical past and contemporary international appeal. After many restorations, it has managed to preserve its charm, and exudes it’s former glory. The original Frasers and Daniells paintings and the tavern named after them, the symbolically baptized “1911” restaurant and bar, the Royal ballroom were the places where have met and are still as popular today. The Hotel is a jewel of architecture and its location in the heart of the city makes it the ideal venue for tourists around the world.



The Wild Grass Lodge is located just outside Kaziranga National Park.It is an attractive rural style hotelwonderfully situated by a stream in (rice) paddy fields and forest. Its grounds having more than 40 species of trees and over 200 species of shrubs, creepers and climbers. Wild Grass Lodge provides a variety of lodgings from garden cottages to thatched roofed tents. The all rooms in the Jungle Lodge have attached bathrooms with hot & cold water facilities.



The lodge is spread in a sprawling estate of 12 acres in Rancha village (8-10 minutes from the park gate) and is surrounded by Sal forested hills on all sides. It has 10 cottage rooms and 8 stilt cottage rooms with en-suite modern bathrooms. All cottage rooms have large open verandahs overlooking Sal forest and grasslands.


Mahua Kothi is the first of five Taj Safari Lodges .The accommodation and facilities of the lodge blend charmingly into the quaint and rustic surroundings. It offers a never-before-experienced Indian wildlife circuit, replete with both adventure and – unlike any safari experience in the country so far – impeccable service and lush luxury.Nestled in the vicinity of the breathtaking Bandhavgarh National Park, Mahua Kothi promises an experience that is unconventional, focused on guests’ individual needs and emotions, knowledgeable, sophisticated and innovative. The name Mahua Kothi draws inspiration from one of India’s most beautiful trees, the Madhuca Indica, or as it is commonly known, the Mahua or butter tree.


Inspired by the mud cottages of the local tribal the resort has a total of 18 air-conditiones luxury suites. The cottages are arranged in clusters of two or four to accommodate guests travelling in larger or smaller groups. Special care has been taken in making bathrooms the stuff of dreams.

Each suite has an adjoining verandah overlooking the forest, where one can enjoy a quiet cup of tea and take in the tranquil jungle mornings. The slanting tiled roof recreated using local stone is best suited for heavy rainfall and to keep the room temperatures low. Large windows provide ample natural light in each room and an unobstructed view of the forest around.


Taj Safaris’ third jungle safari lodge is situated along the banks of the Banjaar River, directly overlooking the heart of Kanha National Park. The luxurious, yet lightweight, ensuite tents have been designed in a contemporary style, with pressed bamboo wall panels, gorgeous bamboo floors and locally crafted furniture hewn from the timber of exotic Indian trees. Interiors showcase block-printed cottons and silks that are typical of Madhya Pradesh. Each suite  features a private deck overlooking the river, plus a swimming pool. The atmosphere is light, ethereal and organic.
